Wear This Weekend: The Monokini


The humidity in New York City has been sweltering as of late, and as a result, I'm looking to wear as little as possible on the weekends. Tastefully, of course.

I've been borderline living in my crochet monokini from BCBG. It's cute, versatile, and it hides a multitude of recurring brunch sins. (Who can say no to biscuits, gravy and Bloody Mary's?) Better yet, with the right styling, it's two looks in one!

Whether you're destined for a tropical paradise, hanging poolside or just doing some good ol' fashioned Sunday Funday sipping, a cute monokini is an unexpectedly chic alternative to the oh-so-standard triangle two-piece. Look for a peek-a-boo cut to keep it on-trend, add a straw fedora and sorbet-colored shades to up the glam factor.

Shop this look: Madewell sunnies, Forever 21 fedora, Zumiez monokini, rag & bone jean shorts, Steve Madden sandals
