Double up your swimsuit as a bodysuit this summer

“Fashion is like eating, you shouldn’t stick to the same menu.” – Kenzo Takada

From alluring cutouts to conventional one-pieces, there are plenty of swimsuit styles hitting the shelves. 

With a vast number of styles comes great outfit opportunities to nail your favorite styles and start experimenting, instead of recycling the same tired looks. 

Got a great swimsuit? Why not double it as a top and match it with your favorite pieces?

Here are some of the best ways you can wear your swimsuit as a bodysuit. 

Go on adventures 

Planning a vacation to a tropical paradise? 

You can create a relaxed but stylish outfit by wearing a printed swimsuit as a bodysuit and pairing it with some denim jeans. Whether you’re on the street or by the beach, a printed swimsuit with a straw hat and a pair of gladiator sandals is a comfy but fashionable fit. 

A classic look like a floral suit or an animal print will make you fit right in with the rest of your tropical backdrop! 

Party in style

If you’re aiming for a more sophisticated look, try pairing a bandeau one-piece with a skirt. 

Wearing a bold colored suit—think red, yellow, or blue—as a bodysuit with an asymmetrical or a ruffled skirt also make up just the right fit for a more dressed-up evening. 

This look even works great for an evening celebration. 

When pool party season hits, a maxi skirt or a mesh skirt over a one-piece bathing suit is going to be an excellent way to elevate your look from lounging-by-the-pool to party-till-sunrise. 

Stay sleek and suave 

When you hear smart casual, dapper shirts and dress pants immediately spring to mind. 

A swimsuit is probably the furthest from your mind, but paired with the right pieces, they can hit all the right notes. 

For example, you can try tucking your swimsuit under linen pants and look professional without compromising your comfort. 

Take a second to picture this; your favorite linen pants and a nude one-piece with a blazer thrown on top. With a pair of pumps and geometric earrings, you can pull off an enviable smart casual look effortlessly!

Beat the heat

On a hot summer day, pair a cotton swimsuit with shorts or a denim skirt, and you’re all set for the summer sun. 

A swimsuit in a neutral shade together with light-colored bottoms, makes a comfortable and relaxed look. To complete your ensemble, throw in a pair of block-heeled sandals and shades to shield you from the glare and you’re set to take the streets. 

Stay comfy in athleisure 

The best thing about swimsuits is that they can be paired with a multitude of pieces, aside from just trousers and skirts. 

For example, take the athleisure looks that are everywhere at the moment. If you’re planning to layer up for the winter and get cozy, try your favorite hoodie with a white one-piece tucked under leggings or sweat pants. 

Accessorize this laid-back outfit with a snapback and sneakers, and you’re a chic street style icon before you know it!

Wine and dine in a fine outfit

A swimsuit with a halter neck, alluring ring design, or criss-cross neckline, is the perfect outfit choice if you want to make a statement on date night. 

A black swimsuit tucked into a pair of leather pants can create a sleek, chic outfit. 

To ramp up your look and channel confidence as you live your best life, throw on some heels with your boldest shade of lipstick. 

Wear your swimsuit as a bodysuit to double your wardrobe

Who says swimwear has to be limited to the water?

Styling a comfortable swimsuit as a bodysuit gives you plenty of styling opportunities to experiment with your looks, plunge into new style territories, and wear your favorite swimsuits all year round!
