Dive Right In: Swimsuit Style Beyond the Pool

Why save your pool-side style for the water when you can show it off in your daily fashion? Combining your fave swimwear with everyday pieces will not only increase your warm-weather wardrobe, but also add extra detail and texture to your style! Check out ModStylist Alyssa C.’s swimwear styling tips ‘n’ tricks, and get ready to bring your bathing suit beyond the pool.

Look 1

Have some serious fun with your fashion by combining vibrant colors and patterns — and do not be afraid to mix and match! Maxi skirts are one of the easiest and most comfortable summer go-tos. They give the body great length and pair well with a more form-fitting top (AKA a swimsuit!). Add wedges to a maxi-ed out outfit for added height — this is a great trick if you’re on the shorter side, but love the look of a maxi. This outfit could take you from shopping by day to cocktails with pals by night! If it’s a chilly evening, just throw on a denim jacket or lightweight cardi, and you’ll be good to go.

This look proves that rash guards aren’t just meant for surfing waves! They make the perfect long-sleeved top for a cool spring look. Paired with a flirty full skirt, this dynamic duo provides a fabulously flattering silhouette. Play up the colors in your top with fun sandals, and don’t forget your sunglasses for those sunshiny days!

Grabbing lunch with some friends? Piece together an effortless boho look like this one for oh-so-fashionable alfresco dining. When wearing high-waisted shorts, don’t be afraid to go with a bikini or crop top. Finish the look with a loose-fitting kimono-style jacket and some ankle-wrap wedge heels for a playful, fun, and free-spirited vibe!

A swimsuit? To work? Yup, for realz — if you want to jazz up your everyday work ensemble, try a darling printed suit with a pencil skirt and blazer for a chic, subtly sultry look. Pairing a one-piece suit with a pencil skirt provides a sleek, body-skimming silhouette. Add a blazer for some structure, then doll up your look with a statement necklace for a splash of sparkle. Think of a one piece as a printed blouse or cami that you would layer underneath a top, jacket, or blazer. With that mindset, you’ll have some great color and style combos that will have the office buzzing!
