Finding the perfect swimsuit is a deeply personal choice with no specific, or consistent formula. What may work for you, will almost certainly not work for you closet friend – no matter how similar your taste in beachwear is. As we creep closer to December, the annual search for the season's chicest swimsuit is in full swing, and this year our sights are set firmly on finding the best one piece swimsuits to take us from afternoon dip to evening drinks.
A versatile purchase is a successful purchase in the eyes of the RUSSH editors, and never is this more critical than when curating your swimwear collection. The humble one piece has seen a resurgence in recent years, with several of our favourite sartorial trailblazer's ditching their tiny bikinis in favour of the classic silhouette. Swimwear and ready-to-wear designers across the globe quickly followed suit, experimenting with modern iterations of the once modest design. Think colour, cut-outs and plenty of strings attached.
If you're not someone who is driven by trend, then the practicality of the one piece swimsuit is certain to win you over. The right choice will easily double-up as the perfect after-sun outfit – a bodysuit of sorts, if you will. Paired with wide leg trousers and one of summer's most covetable footwear options, long summer days will feel like a breeze as you transition from poolside to pool bar.
Below, we have rounded up the season's best one piece swimsuits for you to add to your collection now.
