Our affection for swimwear extends to all colors, shapes, and styles. And, yes, that includes bikinis and one-pieces that give us wacky tan lines, too. Here's why: They're so unique, with their many straps and quirky cutouts, that —if the style suits us — we're not bothered by a triangular-shaped patch of tanned skin on our midsection. (Or, three patches if we're wearing the knotted-front maillot pictured here.)
Beyond religiously applying SPF and seeking shade under beach umbrellas, there's not much more we can do about preventing tan lines. So, we embrace them and whatever shapes or patterns they create — the weirder, the better. If you're feeling equally adventurous with your beach wardrobe, click ahead to shop the styles we're coveting.
