    Originally an emblem of the sexual revolution in the early ‘60s, the monokini has inched its way onto modern-day beaches, thanks to the way it effortlessly marries the provocative appeal of a bikini with the athleticism of a one-piece. Plus, it’s a simple solution for those of us who can never make it though even one summer without losing a bikini top or bottom. (Not that we’re guilty of that or anything.)
