The winter chill has me itching to book a last-minute trip to Tulum or Miami. Before I buy my ticket, however, I have to make sure my swimsuit collection is up to date. That means tossing out any old string bikinis and investing in some stylish one-pieces that are effortless to slip on. So, before you leave for your trip, browse through the best vacation one-pieces ahead. You’ll find everything this season, from the latest trendy cutouts and graphic patterns to strappy details, which will make you forget why you ever wanted a two-piece in the first place. Get ready to soak up the sun (and escape this cold!) in style.
You don't have to be an outdoor enthusiast or nature expert to appreciate the ditsy florals on this swimsuit. The one-piece is made from environmentally-friendly recycled fabrics and fun details like a retro scooped back and an adjustable cutout at the side.
Brides looking for a white swimsuit for their bachelorette parties will love the romantic scallop ruffle options from Zimmermann like this one. It's pretty and stands out for the cameras without taking attention away from the person wearing it. It's a little pricey but, hey, you're only getting married once. Splurge!
Though this swimsuit comes in a muted peach tone, the scrunchie-like texture adds more than enough detail for someone who prefers a more subdued one-piece. It'll be your go-to for every vacation.
One thing I love about long-sleeve swimsuits: you can go easy on the sunblock. This is perfect for those who are looking for fuller coverage and a swimsuit with a classic print. Add a straw tote or sunglasses and you're good to go.
Clearly, the all-over logo details on this one-piece makes it the only statement swimsuit you need for a fancy yacht party. This one-piece is also more versatile than you think. Rock as a bodysuit with mom jeans and sandals.
Blue jeans fans rejoice, I've found a cute denim swimsuit. You'll quickly count this as one of your favorites because of the plunging neckline and cutouts with a sexy front tie fastening. Just like your favorite denim go-tos, this suit looks cute with anything, like that cotton maxi skirt in your closet.
Channel the nature vibes of Brazil in this macaw appliqué swimsuit. The one-piece features a mesh middle so the design looks imprinted on your skin while the strapless style helps you avoid shoulder tan lines. This piece is a must-have for tropical getaways and will make a statement at the pool or on your 'gram.
Sorry, what were you saying? I was lost in a daydream about all the places I could wear this swimsuit to, from my friend's upcoming bachelorette party in Costa Rica to the shores of Tulum. The palm tree print is so vibrant, I can almost smell the ocean and taste the dollar coconuts.
Not ready to leave the comfort zone of black swimsuits? Ease yourself into "colors" with this half-beige, half-black one-piece. Though the hues are tame, the swimsuit itself has a low-cut front and back for a sultry look. Wear with shorts and beige sandals to dinner—it effectively becomes a bodysuit.
I'm not sure what to focus on first—the black sash, the side cutouts, or the back of the swimsuit. There's a lot going on here, but the designs come together in a harmonious way that makes the one-piece extra special. If you're looking for something a little different, this is it.
This swimsuit looks so sweet, thanks to the dainty floral print and shoulder bows. As "covered up" as this one-piece may seem, the back does dip pretty low—though not so low you need to worry about exposing anything.
Anyone can design an animal print swimsuit, but Norma Kamali takes it one step further with mesh paneling. This one-piece gives the illusion of skin-baring cutouts and looks sexy without appearing tacky; meanwhile, the high-cut sides elongate your legs. Just make sure to apply sunscreen evenly, so you don't get a one-shoulder strap tan line.
When I want a little lift in the chest area, I turn to bustier-style swimsuits. This sporty two-toned one-piece from Tory Burch falls right into that category. It has molded underwire cups, a pretty waistband, and adjustable straps. I couldn't ask for more.
Made in Brazil, this black one-piece has amazing stretch so it doesn't sit too tight across your figure. The delicate straps turn into a racerback style from behind, and a cheeky fit reveals just enough of your butt without your feeling totally embarrassed about it.
Let's go back, back to the '60s with this polka dot halter. You can't tell from this photo, but it even has an underwire to support larger busts, while the triple-strength spandex smoothes your figure. Ready to get your retro vibes on?
