Get The Look: Dress It


Use your bikini as an undergarment while picnicking by a lake or the shore.

You don’t always have to wear your swimwear to swim or directly on the beach for that matter. Granted it’s still by some form of water, outdoors and in the middle of summer, you can totally get away with wearing them casually. Sling a drapey beach dress over the top; low back, cut outs, thin straps, low drop v-neck, the options are endless and each one pairs perfectly with a bikini. Allow your swimwear to peek through, use it as a bralette and if the opportunity arrives for a spontaneous dip you’re set. Make it park-side cute with a beige floppy hat and jewelled sandals, all of which brings the outfit together for an adorably put together finish.

Get The Look: Breezy Goddess


Add to your beach wanderer look with a flowy maxi.

Take a new approach to classic swimwear and the bikini-only look and pull on a floor length maxi that splits up the side and dances in the wind. This look not only provides a little extra covering for chilled winds and sunset walks, but will also have you looking more chic and put-together. Feel like a mermaid as you lounge and dip you ankles into the water, the longer and more flowy your skirt is, the better. Top this stylish look with an oversized floppy hat or fedora and large round sunglasses to add a little mystery and really bring it all together.

Get The Look: Beach to Street


Get streetwise and wear your bikini under a summery outfit.

Distressed denim shorts are a cult classic in beachwear, a staple item for summer and carries your on-the-beach bikini to the streets for a little side walk shopping. Throw on a drapey lace cardigan and let your bikini peek through or loosely tuck a muscle tee into the shorts for that easy breezy beachy look. Stroll down the sand to the local outdoor cafe with this look, adding a wide brim fedora and high-street style birkenstocks to complete the look making it a full outfit. Let your bikini be an addition to your outfit, rather than something only worn near the water.
