It’s summertime, and that means spontaneous trips to the beach, pool parties, BBQs after work, and long days by the lake. Be ready for every adventure by incorporating swimwear into your street wear look. It’s not just a look for celebs – we’re showing you how simple it can be to add some swim into your day-to-day wardrobe with the 5 best ways to wear swimwear as streetwear.
Wear a one piece as a bodysuit
Bring your colourful one piece into the office. Swimwear designs are more luxe and versatile than ever, looking modern and figure-flattering under a blazer. Keep the rest of your look monochromatic to let the swimsuit shine – we love neutrals like these pearl sandals by Ipanema and Pilgrim’s blush sunglasses.
Occasion: Street Styling
Wear a 90s bandeau with bike shorts
90s athleisure looks are our latest obsession. Pair a minimalist bandeau with bike shorts and unique Pilgrim sunnies for model off-duty style. Keep things sporty with Roxy sneakers and a Volcom belt bag, but live everyday like a vacay with on-the-go drink tumblers from Corkcicle.
Occasion: Poolside Cocktails
Wear a flowing tankini or crop top
Drinks après pool time? Count yourself in, wearing a flowing tankini with extra details. Rings, metallic hardware and unique silhouettes elevate a simple tank. All you need to complete the look are soft beach pants, sleek Reef slides, classic tortoise Pilgrim shades, and a summery straw tote by Sun’N’Sand.
Occasion: Backyard BBQ
Wear a bikini as a bralette
The peek-a-boo effect of a colourful triangle or bralette bikini under crochet is playful and patio party appropriate. This style highlights your bright bathing suit choice so you can coordinate colours with some striped Billabong sandals. Keep things casual with denim shorts and straw accessories, like this Ripcurl visor.
