How to wear summer's top swim trends

There are many fresh bathing suit style options for the season. Bloomingdale's Marasco says the return of the one-piece as a seasonal swim statement is "huge," with styles that include graphic prints, new textures such as crochet and "playful cutouts, laser cuts, slits on the side -- it's all very modern."
