Swimsuit trends come and go, but some stick around a little longer than we anticipated. The one-shoulder bathing suit has been slipping into swim collections for a couple of years now, making us wonder whether it’s time to admit that they’ve transcended past the “trend” phase and into “staple” territory.
Summer 2018’s swim line-up is rife with one strap cut-out monokinis, ruffled single shoulder bikinis, and every silhouette style in between. With the popularity of one-shouldered dresses and tops still very much alive, we’re not totally surprised the look has been translated into swimwear as well. On a practical note, a one strapped swimsuit also doubles as a compromise for support when a option for a full strapless suit is too much too handle. Plus, it’s a more interesting alternative to that whole wearing a one-piece-as-a-bodysuit thing.
With beach days close and Summer Fridays even closer, here’s 18 one-shoulder swimsuits we’re ready to slip into.
