One-piece swimming costumes have made a recent return to the beach scene, a trend that I happen to be quite smitten with. Now, everyone knows that you can wear a swimming costume to the beach or poolside – basically a no-brainer. But recently, I stumbled across an article that suggested styling swimming costumes for occasions other than the beach. Of course, I had to try these suggestions out myself.
My favourite option for styling swimming costumes away from the beach is to incorporate them in a casual look. Because it is one piece, the cosie works quite well as a bodysuit. I’ve always loved a sleek look, so I went for an all-black number with a lovely cross-up detail in the front. In order to dress this piece down, I opted for some distressed boyfriend denim in a light hue. I love the contrast between the dark and light colours, it makes for great visual interest especially when paired with another fun texture.
I have been searching like mad to find new ways to style this cardigan. Usually I opt for a dark denim look, but being able to pair it with this lighter wash of denim was rather refreshing. The colour is soft, but the texture is somewhat unexpected. I honestly feel as though I am wearing a cozy blanket all day – and I love that.
For shoes, I wanted to keep the focus on the swimming costume, so I continued the soft colour palate with a white loafer. I have been wearing these shoes so often, incredibly comfortable and quite sleek – perfect for any summer look. For a lady that loves wearing heels, on the days your feet need a little break, loafers are quite the chic alternative.
