10 Reasons 2016 Is the Year of the One-Piece Swimsuit

Posted on

For years we’ve associated bikinis with instant sex appeal, but now the one-piece is making a comeback in a major way, thanks to the incessant Insta-ing of Kim Kardashian, Taylor Swift and more stars who’ve discovered that more actually is more. Of course, it’s also entirely possible to wear a one-piece that has less fabric than a bikini (congrats on figuring that one out, Emily Ratajkowski).

Here are 10 reasons the one-piece is the suit of the summer.

1. Kim Kardashian found a way to make them as revealing as ever…

4. Gigi Hadid looked as patriotic as ever in vertical red-white-and-blue vertical stripes at Swift’s Fourth of July party/photoshoot.
