monokini makes a comeback

i remember wearing a monokini in fifth or sixth grade and thinking i was pretty darn cool.  one piece in the front and bikini in the back.  tricky.  kinda like a mullet (business in the front, party in the back).

cut-out ruffle monokini

well the monokini is making a comeback apparently and some of them are a bit cuter than my grade-school-80s-options.  who knew?  so if you want to relive some of the fabulous 80s, find a monokini, put loads of hairspray in your hair, and listen to some Simple Minds.

just ask paris hilton, kesha, jenny mccarthy, lindsay lohan, audrina patridge, eva longoria, and jessica alba.


  1. I totally had a monokini in elementary school, but in true 80s fashion it was neon orange, pink and green. I LOVED it and thought I was super cool in it too!

  2. i believe mine was neon green and pink! if only i still had it lying around somewhere...

  3. What?! Is it possible that we ALL had the same monokini?! The last one here is my fav. :)

  4. The ruffle one is to die for!! Great taste!
