So totally wonderful! Love swim suit + cowboy boots!

Jaime said...

I am typically a 2 piece girl but great picks here! I love the grey strapless with the bow thing.

Julia, the Thanksgiving Girl said...

I love what maillots looks like but so impractical when it comes to tanning!

Julia said...

I like the one from topshop unique and the floral pieces.

Keri said...

Seriously contemplating wearing the entire d&g get up on any given day. Walking the dog, going to the market, getting my hair done.... In a perfect world. Xx

Inspiration exists said...

Really love one-piece suits, have three of them and each one makes me feel stylish on the beach - can't wait the summer to come!

Fit For Fashion said...

One-pieces never looked so hot! I'm loving almost all of these. I was never a one-piece swimsuit fan until recently. I definitely have to step my workout game up! Great post!

E said...

That Pucci lace-up piece is hands- down my fave!

caroline @ patagonia gifts said...

oh such an amazing selection of swimsuits, darling! I'm in love with the 'I love you' one and the polka dot too! xo

I actually love almost everyone of these!! Ooo Motiovation to go to the gym!! hehe. I especially like the Etro one!! So cute!

nookie said...

I like them all,can't choose:x

lisa said...

Such sexy suits! I don't swim and I'm not much of a beach person (I can't find the time to lie around on the sand), but if I were this post would definitely inspire me to get in shape for swimsuit season lol.

Iva said...

Dagny @ Beautiful Living said...

The Zimmerman one is fabulous! Great pattern!!

themaddychronicles said...

Beautiful! I love, love,love that white Badgley Mischka suit! so retro chic! That suit is all the inspiration I need to get my butt in shape!

Jennifer Fabulous said...

I had no ideas one-piece swimsuits could be so much fun. It looks like I'll be hitting up the Victoria's Secret catelog this spring...

TERI REES WANG said...

That peach one reminds me of the "Sienna" one-piece from Salt Swimwear!

Laura Trevey said...

Love the striped Stella McCartney!!

TERI REES WANG said...

I still love the old 80's idea of wear a body suit as the best base, outfit item...with jeans and a jacket, or with a long summer skirt.

Elizabeth Marie said...

I LOVE one pieces...soooo sexy!

The Style Strutter said...

Wow some amazing cut-out pieces there!! Gotta start the sit-ups again:)!!

Those are some hot suits. Love how the jackets look over some of them.

Kristin said...

Now you're talkin' my language! Red polka dots...come to mama!

Dania Padron said...

It figures that I'd love the DVF suit. It's such a 70s bathing suit!!! My mom rocked one just like it.

Great work once again, CC.

Michael St. James said...

The Derek Lam suit is gorgeous and you could wear it to work with a pencil skirt! Of course, going to the bathroom would be quite an arduous task...lol. The DKNY and Gucci suits are HOT too. Great picks CC!

Gorgeous swimsuits! I especially love all the cut-outs although it might leave some wicked tan lines
