Last year I blogged about one-piece bathing suits and my thoughts on their beauty and elegance and femininity. As we approach swimsuit season 2014 I thought it would be fun to gather up some of my favorite one-piece looks, for a bit of inspiration. Each of these proves that one-pieces can be so flattering and lovely--if you're not yet convinced by them, maybe by the end of this post you will be!
The loose top and cinched-waist on this first one makes for a really flattering and perfectly casual silhouette. I bet it's very comfortable too. My one concern would be about the top staying up, so you'd have to try this on to make sure.
This one is so glamorous and anything but frumpy. The lines and the gathering details and the touch of mesh make it special. And how about the back?! Stunning.
This one is very expensive, but I liked it too much not to include it, at least for inspiration. The peplum feature is definitely girly but the rest of the suit is simple and the v-neck provides a nice edgy contrast. I love this suit. Paired with a broad sun hat, you'd feel like Audrey Hepburn.
This one is sold out, but this is mostly an inspiration post anyway, so I'm including it. Doesn't this suit look like a watercolor painting? I'm going to keep on the lookout for a similar one.
This is not a one-piece but it's pretty close. These high-waisted swimsuit bottoms are so elegant and when paired with a slightly-longer-than-normal top, you've got a modified one-piece sort of look! Perfectly retro yet timeless and classy.
What do you think? Will you be adding a new (or maybe your first) one-piece to your collection this year?
