Finding the right bikini is the first step to looking fab all summer long. You may not have pool parties and beachscapades every other day but on days when you do, you want to look fantastic. I mean, who wouldn’t, right? But just because you want to look hot and stylish doesn’t mean you have to spend a ton on new swimsuits. Here are a few different ways to style your swimsuits that will make you want to re-wear your favorite piece over and over again.
Wear it with a hat
The simplest accessory can make the biggest difference when worn with the right piece. If you’re looking to get that East Hamptonite vibe going in your look, there’s really nothing better to wear with your swimsuit than an oversize floppy hat.
Bring on the bling
Jewelry is not usually the accessory that i would advise styling your swimsuit with, but with so many new, chic, and affordable options out there, it’s hard not to give in to the temptation of bringing on the bling, even when you’re at the beach or at a pool party. Body chains are your best bet, though you’re free to choose your own bling.
Keep it retro with headwraps (and a red lipstick!)
The retro look is making a hot comeback so why not give it a go by styling your swimsuit retro and pairing it with a headwrap and a pair of sexy red lips? This look is great for both lounging and actual swimming and it keeps hair off of your face too.
Wear it off the shoulder
If you’re looking for a new swimsuit to add to your collection for this summer, be sure to look for one that has an off shoulder neckline. Off shoulder swimsuits are all the rage these days and they’re the cutest way to style your swimsuit if you want to get a fun, playful, and flirty vibe.
Mix and match
If your budget is a little tight but you still want to look fab, don’t worry. You don’t always have to buy new to keep up with the trends. Instead, why don’t you mix and match the ones that you already have to create a look that’s fresh and fabulous for the upcoming beach and pool parties? Don’t worry, mismatched bikinis are all the rage these days so you surely won’t be the odd one out (though even if you were, that’s not really such a bad thing, is it?)
Wear it as a top
Some swimsuits are just too pretty to be saved for the beach or the pool alone. To get the best bang for your buck, take those gorgeous swimsuits and wear them as a top. Turn bikini tops into bralettes and wear them with shorts and topped with a light cardigan or vest and layer your one-piece swimsuits with a maxi skirt or your favorite
