The Surprising Swimsuit Trend That's Taking Over

Don't write off summer just yet. While July may be coming to a close, there's still plenty of warm weather to be had—which also means plenty of opportunities to wear a swimsuit. Coming off the heels of Miami Swim Week, there seems to be one style that just about everyone can't get enough of, and it might surprise you. One-pieces are the look that fashion girls everywhere are packing for their beach vacations. Why? We asked a few experts to weigh in.

"This season, we saw a lot of suits featuring a variety of eye-catching details: ruffles, cutouts, and of course off-the-shoulder silhouettes," said Elizabeth Leventhal, Moda Operandi's general merchandising manager. "As a buyer, I'm now looking at one-piece not only for the beach but also as the perfect bodysuit for day."

But it's not just buyers who have their eye on the one-and-done staple. Swimwear designer Araks Yeramyan notes that she favors "a simple-one piece with a special detail. I'm liking a high back and a high leg. Both of these features lend a lot of length to any body."

So there you have it: If you're still on the hunt for the perfect suit to finish off summer in style, you may want to consider a one-piece with a little something that makes it extra special. Read on to shop a few of our favorites that fit the bill!
