Sasha Finds: Monokinis 2013
Sasha, I'm a curvy, but slim size 6, short but well-proportioned, a young early 40's. I thought a monokini would be a good compromise for me. Any interesting choices on the market for me right now? Thanks! L
I just can’t get down with this whole monokini thing, BUT L, I’m here for you so I’ll once again suck up my style snobbery and find you what you want. Oh jeez, you ready? Because I don’t think I am.
More often than not this style can come off pretty trash, but you can offset that by pretty-ing things up. What’s better than some ruffle, right? To see what I mean click here (1), and here (2) and here (3).
Another trend you see a lot of on the beach is crochet. I don’t understand how you can actually swim in the sh-t when it gets wet, but what the f-ck do I know. So L, if you’re down with this look then take a peek here (6) and here (7).
If there is any time to play with pattern, it’s now! Not only is it fun, but it will distract from the fact that you’re actually wearing a monokini. Come on, I’m kidding. Seriously though, I actually found some printed pieces that are great here (8), and here (9), and here (10)…
Lastly, if all you want is a plain black serviceable suit then I’ve got you (slightly) covered here (15).
