Change Up Your Summer Swimsuit: The One-Piece

By Sarah Huntington


Taylor Swift made the Monokini the new classic. And, while I am all for flaunting what your mama gave you, sometimes leaving a little more for the imagination is just as fun. So hit the pool, the beach, or even pair these with culottes or a long skirt for summer evening drinks. Here are some of my favorite one-piece suits for the summer season.
