- A single-piece swimsuit that has already taken Summer 2016 by storm!
By now you’ve already seen all the colorful and sexy Monokinis that Summer 2016 has to offer, modeled by our favorite celebrities while hitting up the beach or taking sexy selfies by the pool. Stars have been opting for these sultry one-pieces in lieu of the skin-baring bikinis of years past, and here at Moshery, we can’t complain! In honor of this brand new fashion trend, we’d like to highlight the ultimate up-and-coming trend on the bathing suit scene – that is, our very favorite member of the monokini-family, the all-black monokini swimsuit. Keep reading why to find out why this is our very favorite swimsuit trend this beach season.
Let’s begin with the name – the term itself comes by replacing the antecedent meaning two from “bi”-kini, and replacing it with the one meaning one, “mono.” Think, monocle-meets-bikini, and you’re on the right track. But the most important thing to know is that when it comes to the sexy, single-piece swimswuit, simplicity is the way to go. We don’t need loud prints or gaudy fashion statements – this year, it’s all about the subtle, understatedly sexy look. Hollywood’s hottest it-girls – like Kendall Jenner, Selena Gomez, Bella Hadid, even the adorable Hailee Steinfeld, – have all opted for the classic of a simple black one-piece.
But don’t be mistaken – simple does not mean it isn’t still ultra-sexy. More and more frequently, the all-black Monokini is becoming a fashion statement itself – as stars accessorize it according to their personal tastes and preferences. We’ve been WOW-ed more than a few times by just how great it can look! Just like that versatile item of clothing that will forevermore be your go-to staple to dress-up or dress-down, the black monokini lends its versatility to the same fashionable cause.
Since when could a bathing suit look so fancy, or so classy? Kourtney Kardashian was seen accessorizing hers with some simple gold jewelry and Aviators, whereas Bella Hadid paired hers with itsy-bitsy black shorts while she relaxed on the beach. And a one-piece never looked so fun as when Khloe Kardashian and Kendall Jenner hung-out on the Yacht they chartered on a family-vacation, in their respective black and red monokinis.
One thing is for sure, though, and it’s that no one pulls off the monokini like Kendall does. Cover your ears, Kylie, because we know you’ve been making some major Instagram statements with your own growing collection of monokinis, but this time around, your older sis Kendall steals the show.
Feast your eyes on this amazing shot of Kendall in the black monokini – the swimsuit you must add to your wardrobe this Summer 2016!
