Fashion that makes us sad: wood panel swimsuit

Swimsuit available on Modcloth.comSwimsuit available on Modcloth.comSummer is creeping up, and swimsuit season is virtually upon us. The one-piece has made a strong comeback over the last few years, and we're psyched there are many flattering and sexy non-bikini options available to try. This "Daiquiris on the Deck" one-piece by ModCloth is not one of them.

First of all, yes it is a one-piece, despite the fact that it looks like a tankini. But more importantly, does anyone have any desire to look like they're wearing a swimsuit made out of wood? It's definitely... different! The worst part of this swimsuit though is definitely the non-detachable red belt with a heart buckle that reminds us of the ones on those gymnastics leotards we had as kids. ModCloth describes this bathing suit as "a luxe look onlooking ladies will want to imitate" but we think it looks childish and cheap, despite costing $122. But hey, at least this swimsuit can actually get wet.

What do you think of this wood-esque swimsuit? Is it fab or a fail?
