No Beach, No Problem! 4 Ways to Rock Your Swimwear as Casual Wear
Don’t you just miss sinking your toes in warm sand, feeling a gentle breeze caress your skin, and hearing the soft rush of the waves as they gently crash onto the beach? For many people, the ocean is a sacred space. It’s where you can go to relax, let loose, and let all your worries float away. It’s also the perfect place to rock that cute, little swimsuit that you have in your closet.
However, the pandemic has made it difficult for us to go on a beach trip, which is a total bummer. For now, our days of fun in the sun are limited to our homes, but that doesn’t mean your swimsuits have to go to waste! Instead of letting your swimwear gather dust, why not use them in your day-to-day outfits? Here are 4 fun ways to style your swimsuits as casual wear!
With your favourite pair of trousers
This look is perhaps the easiest one to put together and pull off. All you need are a pair of trusty trousers, and you’re good to go. You can mix and match different prints and patterns, but you can also opt for a solid-colored pair that will complement your swimsuit. To finish the look, add in a belt to give your outfit an extra oomph. Check out how supermodels Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner pulled off this clever combo!
Underneath a sheer top
Sheer tops are gorgeous statement pieces, but they leave very little to the imagination. As such, they’re typically paired with bralettes or bandeaus. However, your favorite swimsuit can also do the trick. To successfully pull the look off, wear your favorite bikini top or one-piece suit underneath it-- it’s the perfect outfit to keep cool in hot weather. Check out how Kendall Jenner wore the sheer top-swimsuit combo after a night out on the town!
Khloe Kardashian also famously sported this look on the red carpet of the E! People’s Choice Awards. Notice how her gold bikini top accentuates her black mesh top and pulls her look together. Classy!
With a cute skirt
Mamma Mia vibes, anyone? This type of look is reminiscent of Lily James’ character in the beloved movie, and it makes you look like you’re about to head off to a remote island in Greece yourself. Pairing your swimwear with a long, flowy skirt creates a fun, carefree look that is perfect for running errands around the metro. Check out the lovely Sofia Vergara pulling off this look!
This look also works with a miniskirt! Let your imagination run wild and pair bold colors together to really make a statement. A swimsuit-miniskirt combo is a fun, fresh, sexy combo that will work well for nights out or intimate house parties.
Underneath an oversized top
A blazer, power suit, or an oversized button-up are perfect for layering over your swimwear. This stylish, sexy combo can be used for trips to the mall, but it’s also great for those work-from-home meetings that require you to dress up a little. Check out how the stunning Sofia Richie was able to pull off this look on the red carpet in Hollywood.
As an added tip, you can even wear a pair of high-waisted pants for a more formal look. Don’t be afraid to experiment with all sorts of prints and patterns to find a style that best suits you!
Perhaps the most versatile of them all is the multi-way swimsuit-- you have an infinite number of styles and looks at your disposal, and it’s great for any occasion. If you have a multi-way swimsuit, there are tons of ways you can style it and rock it with your everyday clothes. Check out this video to see how you can style your multi-way suit!
