While the teeny bikini certainly has its place, there are many good reasons to have a go-to one-piece in your repertoire: that evening pool party invite, that day you want to actually go swimming, that sunburn you got while wearing the aforementioned teeny bikini. Luckily, there are maillot options galore this season, and they run the gamut in style and price. Feeling nostalgic? Treat yourself to a retro-cute swimdress from TopShop or Juicy Couture, or go sexy with a '70s throwback from Anna and Boy or Old Navy. J.Crew has the preppy girls covered with sweet gingham halters, Zimmerman and Newport News both do a glamorous bare-shoulder option, and it seems like just about everyone is making those sporty cut-out numbers that scream early 90's Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.

We've collected 19 of our favorites for you in the gallery above. Happy swimming.—Julie Chen · Swimsuit Styling Advice From a Supermodel [Racked LA]
