Summer Trend to Try: The One Piece Swimsuit {guest post}

July 11, 2011

Let me first say what a pleasure it is to be guest-blogging over here at WIT & Whimsy. Like a girl in a committed long-term relationship, I’m lovingly devoted to my own blog, but I couldn’t help but wonder what life might be like in the stylish pages of w&w.

Coincidentally, I feel the same way about swimsuits for this summer season. I am quite committed to my bikini. I love the tan lines and I love mixing and matching different suits. However, the one piece is having a serious moment this year, and I can’t help but take notice! In every pattern and style, from retro cuts to wild cut-outs, I’ve seen some seriously appealing suits. There’s something about the old Hollywood glamor and suggestive modesty of a well-fitted one piece that’s both chic and sexy. In fact, I recently gave in and purchased a little black number with a plunging neckline from Old Navy that makes me pine for a striped umbrella and some cat eye glasses on the beach of St. Tropez. No matter your how much you dare to bare when you’re lounging poolside or frolicking through ocean waves, I can assure you there’s a single-serving swimsuit out there just dying to steal you away from your trusty two piece.

    I love stripes (and polka dots) so the two Roxy suits you pulled are talking to me!

    I bought a one piece grey striped swimmie for my honeymoon in Belize and I LOVE it! For one, it’s adorable and I feel like a little kid. I always want to run around and jump in the water. Secondly, it’s adorable! And thirdly, you have to use less sunscreen. It really is a win-win-win situation!

    In conclusion, jump on that one piece band wagon! It’s a party up in here!

    much love,

    Also obsessing over high-waisted bikini bottoms, so sexy without revealing too much.
