5 Chic Ways To Style A Swimsuit


Pair a gingham one-piece with a flouncy white midi skirt and neutral accessories in woven raffia.

Malibu Vibes

Don't be afraid to mix nautical stripes with festive tropical prints, and be sure your shoes can kick off easily when you hit the sand.

City Slicker

Dress up a halter-neck bikini with high-waisted cropped trousers, a bohemian necklace and sleek monochromatic mules.

Island Bohemian

Punchy hues and vibrant prints play nice in coordinating colorways. Wear your crochet suit under a sheer caftan with woven flats and '60s sunglasses for a leisurely lunch with an ocean view.

Palm Springs Polish

Nothing will dress up a flirty floral swimsuit faster than a crisp pair of white tailored shorts. Accessorize with an embroidered clutch, drop earrings and lace-up tassel flats.
