Swimsuit season is officially here and the monokini has become the new “it” item. If you recognize the featured suit, it is because I featured it on a recent Wish List Wednesday post. It’s very common for at least one of those items to make it into my closet!
I’ve been keeping tabs on the one-piece trend for quite a while now but this is the first time I’ve given one a try. It’s nice to have an option for the days we aren’t feeling our best in the mid section without having to sacrifice style. Similar to dresses, monokinis come in varying necklines and silhouettes. To find one flattering for your body type, follow the same guidelines you would for a dress. Broad shoulders? Gravitate towards a halter top. Short torso? Elongate the appearance of your trunk with a plunging neckline. Catch my drift?!
I am very happy with this ever popular palm print monokini. To begin, it was only $19.99, but aside from the pretty price point, it’s very complimentary for an athletic frame. The deep v-neck and cutout sides slim the frame nicely, creating curves in all the right places. Stylistically, the knot front keyhole and the back-tie details are the perfect finishing touches. I topped this one-piece with a white tassel sarong, although black would look great too.
