Though I am not ready to give up the bikini entirely, chasing after two small people at the pool has made for many almost wardrobe malfunctions that no one needs to see. So a new suit with less string and more coverage is a necessity and actually on trend.
I might try for a new two piece that has the ability to move with with me and not away from me. One a little sassy and the other a little sporty.
I have not ventured into one piece territory since middle school, but I am loving the look and the fact you can throw on a pair of shorts or skirt and head out the door.
A little black suit sounds about right. Feels very French Riviera to me.
1. Size up in this great v neck from J. Crew $118 / 2. I love the simplicity of this one Gap $59 / 3. This is the throwback suit that you probably owned in the 90s. Love J. Crew $88 (on sale & comes in tons of colors)
Something in a blue or gray would be fun too.
1. A classic tank in a fun color Solid & Striped $148 / 2. The blocking of this suit would be so flattering Tory Burch $225 / 3. This is one of my favorites Marc Jacobs $148 / 4. Great suit if you like to show off some leg, but not your tummy L Space $132
Stripes and patterns can make it even more fun and even flattering.
1. Another one of my top faves J. Crew $98 (on sale and lots of color options) / 2. Gingham is so hot right now Solid & Striped $158 / 3. Kind of 80s/beetlejuice, and I like it Wildfox $150 / 4. The banding on this is so flattering Nanette Lepore $148
And I am always a sucker for a little ruffle action.
1. This has a nice low back too Shoshanna $138 / 2. A little retro and I bet comfortable Toni Praver $149 / 3. The peplum comes on and off and it comes with straps. Zinke $136
You think you might take the one piece plunge? Join me! ha
