With another scorching weekend ahead, we’re celebrating the last weeks of summer with our favourite swim trend: the one piece.
The more conservative sister in the swimwear family has undergone a chic transformation this season, with high-cut, cut-out, retro and bold styles all adding to it’s appeal. The reinvention of the modest one piece has given the style longevity, securing it’s place as a summer staple.
Here are 15 styles to shop before this balmy weather gives way to the inevitable Canberra cold…
THE HIGH CUT
We’ve got Kylie Jenner to thank for bringing this sexy ‘80s number back onto the scene. Designers have embraced the return of the cheeky, high-cut swimsuit, providing plenty of styles and shapes to try.
The beauty of this so-right-now style is that it compliments all body types. High-cut swimmers look great on curvy figures, add shape to boxy frames and add length to shorter body types. What more could we ask for?
You just can’t escape the cutout trend this season. This playful style allows you to flash a little more skin than expected, giving the one-piece suit an even sexier vibe.
A bit too much? Try a cutout featuring sheer or mesh paneling; a clever design that gives the illusion of revealing more while showing less.
For an on-trend option, you can’t beat this alluring style.
If you love the classic one-piece for its ability to provide that little bit more coverage, you’ll be happy to hear that the classic, simple cut is trending in a range of colours and patterns.
Keep up-to-date by choosing a tropical design, bold colour or spots-luxe style. Or, for a glamorous look, try a retro-inspired style: this classic design gives you a flirty, feminine look while providing support in all the right places.
