How to style your swimwear as part of your everyday look
Say yes to the skirt
A maxi skirt is the easiest and fuss-free pairing to a bikini top or one-piece swimsuit.
Swimsuit with front plunge neckline, bikini top with chain strap halter, cotton button-down maxi skirt, leather skinny belt, hoop earrings, calfskin quilted handbag with chain sling, and platform ankle-strap sandals, Chanel
Layer your neon coloured one-piece with a monochrome ensemble for a maximum style impact.

Naughty but nice
Do a Julia Fox (with a thong peeking from your low-waist jeans) albeit in a more conservative fashion by wearing your bikini over your denim ensemble.

Like a boy
Break the sexy stereotype of swimsuit styling with a pair of tailored bermudas.
Maximise your crop top by layering your swimsuit under for a cute colour-blocking look.
