What: A sexy black bathing suit-dress hybrid by the king of laid-back American glamour, Michael Kors
Why: Bathing suits are a lot of things, but chic isn’t always one of them. That’s why we’re loving this striking one-piece that features a plunging neckline (which is only one slimming mechanism this suit offers), a waist-cinching skinny gold belt, and a flouncy little skirt.
How: We don’t know about you, but just looking at this bathing suit makes us want to be sitting poolside somewhere fabulous, sunhat on, with a Champagne cocktail in hand.
