2. The Daring Monokini:

The Monokini is not for the fainthearted, it’s the definition of sexy, the statement of classy, and the declaration of bold and feisty. Monokini is basically a one-piece bikini that extends from the upper thigh and splits into two extremely thin strips that touch the breasts and goes all the way up to the neck. There is no specific or standard design of a Monokini. Some prefer their Monokinis to cover their bellies along with the chest while some just prefer the reveal. 

The ‘B’ in Bohemian stands for bold and when it comes to being bold, a Monokini is all that you are going to need. Monokinis are simply perfect for beachy parties and pool parties. They elevate your look to a new spectrum of sexy and classy. Many people have the misconception that the Boho style is anything but sexy. The Monokini, however, stands against that misconception. It’s the sexiest and boldest piece in the Boho wardrobe!

The color palette for the Monokinis is a very subtle one. Usually mono shades of nude and black are popular in Monokinis but some Boho queens also prefer Monokinis with floral patterns.

How to Style the Monokini:

Monokini is the swimwear for the daring. To style a Monokini, focus on the minimal. The Monokini itself is a ‘too much’ expression, so keep the accessories focus to the minimum. No need to wear your crystal pendant with this one, but your crystal studs are dying to come out of the jewelry box. Style the Monokini with some crystal studs and rings. Flip flops again are a must, but since it’s a Monokini and you want to classy form head to toe in it, so go for some chic stone embossed flip flops. In a Monokini, sunglasses are not a must, but do you know what is a must? Sunscreen! And loads and loads of sunscreen! Fashion is necessary but it should not come with the cost of damaged skin. Lastly, top of your Monokini with a bucket load of confidence!
