Formerly reserved for the self-conscious and the modest, the one piece swimsuit made a comeback a few years ago in a major retro-glam way. This season, the one piece has taken a turn for the artful: think colorblocking, trompe l'oeil prints, mixed patterns, and unexpected cutouts. The overall effect is a little less "look at my bod" and a little more "look at my taste level."
Click through our gallery for ten art-y one pieces, including Karlla Colletto's Venn diagram-esque tank and a pop-floral strapless bandeau by J. Crew. (Still not convinced by the one piece? We'll have two pieces up on Thursday, and you can always hit the pavement yourself with our handy Swimwear Shopping Guide!)
