Trend Alert: The Monokini

icon What: The Buzz About Monokinis Why: One-pieces and bikinis are pretty standard in the world of swimsuits, but this summer’s hottest swimsuit trend is the monokini, or what’s sometimes called a “cut-out.” It’s not quite a one-piece, but it’s not nearly a bikini, therefore carrying on the idea that less is more and that you don’t have to bare it all to get major sex appeal. Celebrities love the style, as do lean model types who you’ve probably seen prancing around in them on runways and the pages of Vogue. Surprisingly, though, this trend has even caught on in the mainstream — at least on the likes of yachting Hamptonites I saw donning shimmering metallic monokinis over the weekend. A-listers and mega-stars aside, I think this is a stunning look to wear if you have the body for it. From modest styles, such as this suit to the lefticon, to more elaborate peek-a-boo styles, this trend is red hot and totally worth a try-out in the dressing room. But what do you think? Would you wear it? Leave a comment or vote!
