We love a bikini and have been snapping up sale bargains (hello Mara Hoffman at half price) and drooling over the crocheted kiini two pieces since the sun first popped his hat on back in the spring. But right now, we're having a little mid-summer love affair with the one piece. The tan lines may be a little less ideal than in our teeny bikinis, but we love the idea of being able to run, jump and wake surf in our swimwear without the worry of flashing everyone on the beach. Plus, chuck on a pair of denim cut-offs and you get the perfect laid-back summer 2015 look that'll take you from beach to bar in seconds. In short, this summer we're thinking more is more.
Having said that, our one rule for keeping things well away from frumpsville is making sure that there's still a flash of unexpected flesh on show. We're talking a cut-out here, a scoop back there or even a high cut leg to rival the Baywatch babes circa the Hoff's heyday.
