One-piece bathing suits have some clear advantages over bikinis: They're instantly eye-catching and are easy to slip right on. And unlike your string bikini bottoms, these swimsuits won't fall off as soon as you jump into the water.
Since you'll be making a statement by wearing a one-piece anyway, why not make it an uber-trendy suit? These styles range from bold and printed to strapless and cutout. Even better? They're cute enough to wear all day long -- on your way to the beach with some distressed denim cutoffs and post-pool party with a sheer maxi skirt. You can get some serious mileage out of these suits and my prediction is you'll be hooked on your faves all summer long.
