One is not the loneliest number

The month of July has never been so hot. Usually the heat reaches us later in the month or even into August. But lately, as soon as the sun peeks over the horizon, I’m reminded of the colossal heat that’s about to greet me. With summer about to come out of his shell, the talk of the town was sure to go beyond Dubya, Brangelina and even the head-banging copycat jockey pulling a “Zidane” on his handsome horse. To tell the truth, I prefer to talk about vulgar bathing suits. I won’t limit myself to those barely uniform, supermodel bathing suits, though. In fact, I would like to highlight one of man’s most profound inventions: the jumpsuit.

With the advent of extremely high-cut and cropped pants, fashionistas everywhere are basically saying that less is more. In that case, the belly button could very well be the essential couture accessory of the millennium. But does this mean that when you’re sunbathing, you have to show it all off for all the world to see and covering it up would be complete couture suicide? Is the one-piece swimsuit really coming out of hotville? My mom, for example, is a gorgeous, full-figured woman, and instead of wearing an oversized shirt and shorts to the pool, she keeps it real in an 8-year-old black spandex dress. She may need to buy a new one soon, but the point is, if she’s still wearing them, that means a lot of women are still doing it and the trend is far from over. For all you know, it could be hibernating and waiting to wake up from a very long sleep.

Like any wardrobe trend, one-piece swimsuits are more than just a fashion hallmark, they’re also a projection of a person’s character. Having one doesn’t necessarily mean you’re rigid. With the right pattern and complementary shade, you’d look and feel like a Hollywood superstar. Go for something tasteful and bold like the Maillot swimsuit from Beach House. The brand flaunts its creative take on the color palette with this striped masterpiece. The gem leotard features a simply cut white belt, captivating neckline, and full coverage bottom that encourages movement yet announces grace. You get all of this for a measly $85.

If you’re feeling adventurous and slowly trying to be open to showing more, but not all, you should lean towards print and cut pieces like Sauvage’s Corfu number. For $169, you can have the ambrosial cutout one-piece in a cream and turquoise textured paisley print and beaded center that tells people you’re bold yet refined. The top straps that cross in the back provide just the right amount of lift. It is available in sizes 4 to 12 with varying cup sizes B to D. If you possess unrelenting pride and an unequivocal desire to stand out regardless of your age or weight, I suggest you get out there and let it be known. . As soon as you feel comfortable with yourself, people might start to think the same too.

I think every woman should have at least one classic black piece in her wardrobe. Black not only slims, but transcends time, season and physical age. When that moment of utter indecision comes and you can’t think of what to wear to a summer company picnic or a weekend getaway to the beach with that special someone, you might want to breathe and just take the black suit with you. . It is uncomplicated and goes with just about anything: a patterned wrap, an oversized straw hat, or even a satin bed. If you need an image, check out Elegance by swimwear designer *Lisa Curran*. The sophisticated versatility of the black bandeau one-piece showcases a gold center ring that screams Gucci without boring a whole in your pocket. It has a removable cord that can be tied around the neck or left on the nightstand. The material is fully lined with ample back coverage for additional support and comfort. You can get the stunning piece in sizes 6 through 14 for around $145 online or in specialty stores, either way it would definitely be money well spent. It’s also available in glossy brown, and I suggest you grab one, too, while you’re at it.
