Trends tend to favour the young. Shorts get shorter. Straps get strappier. Nail art is dead by the time you master an at-home abstract polish sluice that doesn’t look like a mistake. So it’s gratifying that the au courant style of summer 2016 is not a tiresome gladiator sandal or a head of pastel hair, but perhaps the most classic, elegant, and wearable item of swimwear forged by mankind. Welcome to the new dawn of the one-piece bathing suit—flattering, comfortable, and more stylish than ever before.
