The result? If styled appropriately, you can easily transition this bathing suit from beach to dinner and beyond, making it a smart packing option for your next beach vacation.


Start by reading these general tips on packing for summer travel:



Here are the twenty-three best one piece swimsuits of the season!



Bag | Earrings | Flip Flops | Swimsuit | Wide Leg


Flounce + Wide Leg


Exposed shoulders are the trend of the summer, which makes for a glamorous one-piece swimsuit. It’s probably not the best shape for tan lines, but it would be perfect paired with a pareo around your waist for a poolside party.

Ruffle | Bodycon | Floral Plus


For lunch or shopping during the day, add soft chinos, a cute bag, and strappy sandals to complete your stylish outfit. It’s a feminine and flirty look no matter how you wear it.

Bag | Earrings | Sandals | Swimsuit | Overall


Paisley + Overalls


If you prefer a one-piece swimsuit with a simple shape, then pick a fun pattern. This oversized paisley in bold colors is a modern take on a classic pattern. These are the best one piece swimsuits to mimic regular tops.

Bandeau | Side Detail | Floral Plus


It’s also a great base to layer under a set of overalls. I love overalls as a young, fun, and casual take on the jumpsuit. This white pair would be great for any summer vacation; they instantly spruce up simple tees and are comfortable for long days of wear. Simple slides, stud earrings, and a trendy bag complete the look.


Many travelers designate one packing cube just for their swimwear, bras and underwear.




Hat | Bag | Wedge | Swimsuit | Sunglasses | Skirt


Classic Black + Stripes


This classic black one-piece is updated with body-flattering seaming and a strappy open back. It’s great for sunbathing with a good book or secure enough to play on the sand with your kids.

Remix | Front Twist Plus | Mesh


To dress it up away from the water, pair it with a striped full skirt on the bottom. Combine the outfit with a sweet hat and a pop of color on your feet to take this classic swimsuit to the streets or a nice dinner.




Bag | Sunglasses | Shoes | Swimsuit | Earrings | Shorts


Gingham + Chambray


A strapless, ruched-side swimsuit is a flattering option for your cruise, resort, or beach destination. The shape combined with the super popular fabric, gingham, is a preppy style that will last for seasons to come.

Tankini Plus | Plunge | Twist-Front


To easily wear this suit away from the beach, layer on a pair of comfortable roll-leg chambray shorts. A pair of light espadrilles for your feet, stylish sunglasses, and dangling earrings complete this outfit for shopping, lunch, or a casual day exploring a new place.




Bag | Bracelet | Sandals | Swimsuit | Sunglasses | Skirt


Solid + Maxi


A bright, eye-catching color adds interest to this supportive and classically shaped swimsuit. It’s all about fit with this one-piece, which holds you in and lifts you up just where you need it, keeping you comfortable during days at the beach.

Multi Strap | Cross Back Plus | Plunge Mesh


If you need to plan for a dressier event or dinner during your trip, this one-piece can pull double duty as a sexy top. Pair it with a full maxi skirt, low block heels, and pretty gold jewelry to be ready for whatever the evening may bring.




Earrings | Sandals | Swimsuit | Bag | Shorts


Palms + Pleats


A tropical-patterned, strappy-back one-piece makes for a stylish and fun bathing suit. Tuck the suit into a pair of pleated shorts to add volume to the outfit.

Shirred | Palm Leaf Plus | Flounce


To get the full tropical look, pair it with tassel earrings, a wicker clutch, and ankle-strap sandals. This outfit would be a perfect ensemble for dinner and drinks at your beach destination.
