Swimsuits Now~ Retro Fit, Modern Print

One Piece Swimsuit We Are Handsome(photo: wearehandsome.com)

My family and I just returned from a very relaxing pool-side vacation, so naturally I have swimwear on the brain.  If you haven’t already done so, now is the time to dive into a new one-piece swimsuit.  The trend has swept the runways and fashion-minded women are embracing this fun, yet sophisticated style.  While I love the retro-inspired one-piece numbers shown all over the runways, I don’t want to look like I just popped out of a vintage Florida post card.  I’m looking for something a bit more subtle.  These printed versions bring a modern vibe to the classic swimsuit style…
