I know this is a season when many (from stores to friends to other bloggers) will be sharing their swim picks. And at some point I will be too. There will be one pieces, two pieces, cutouts, swimsuits for family vacations, swimsuits for romantic beach rompers and everything in between. Yet, I have a whole set of swim that I think is a must have for the season- swim to wear as bodysuits. It’s a (wonderful) habit I have- get a fantastic one piece swim, never wear it in water, but use it as a staple under everything- pants, skirts, shorts, layered with dresses and more.
You can see other examples of this habit I have no intention of breaking here, here, and here, though there are many more. In fact, the above swim (I love the low cut!) with white pants (a must have!) is not the only time this year that I will use a swimsuit as a bodysuit. So I thought- we might as well start the season in swim with an outfit that’s both classic and edgy!
Black-from swim to bodysuits and everything beyond- is a classic. Goes with everything, is effortlessly chic, and yet what drew me to this swimsuit was the edge. I love the low cut neckline, and that there is a wire holding the suit in place so there are no accidents. As someone with a long torso, as much as I love swimsuits as bodysuits, I have to be careful with sizing, as many times suits I love are simply too short for me. This number fits perfectly (I’m in an extra small, I’ve linked this exact suit below and it’s on sale!) and will add a bit of spice to anything from skirts and shorts to jeans and more pants.
These white pants are some of my favorites, and a season staple. They’re vintage but I’ve found you similar – especially some Spanx pants that I’m very tempted to add to my closet! What I can say is that while white in season is a must, I love pants with a bit of a wide leg that you can be incredibly casual with, or that you can make incredibly formal. Of course you could do both with a swimsuit!
Do you also have the habit of wearing swimwear as outerwear during the season? What’s your favorite way to style? I promise this isn’t the only time you’ll see me in swim without water this season, and we it warms up I’ll be sharing some of my favorite current swimsuits. Below you can find this swimsuit and amazing white pants!
