A conundrum we’re often faced with on vacation is “how far away from the beach is it socially acceptable to still be wearing a bikini?” and, this year, we have decided to throw caution to the wind and double up our one pieces as bodysuits – because that hot pink swimsuit is too good to only wear while you’re away.
Style yours with a pair of cut-offs or one of this season’s must-have denim mini skirts, or try a floaty maxi for a more bohemian vibe. For a really contrasting combination, pair your swimsuit with a pair of no-nonsense, tapered pants and some funky sneakers for a smart-casual, summer evening look.
There are some fantastic swimwear trends on the scene right now, such as ruffle and asymmetric necklines, cute illustrations and throwback ‘00s prints (perfect for styling with your tinted, frameless aviators). Lace-up detailing at the chest is also a great look that works just as well on the beach as it will at brunch, and you can’t go wrong with a classic pattern such as gingham or candy stripes to brighten your look.
