10 Ways to Style Your Fave Swimsuit into Your Everyday Look

If you're anything like us, you spent weeks preparing for spring break—and yes, that included shopping for the cutest bikinis. Spring break happened, and... you didn't even get to wear your favorite pieces as many times as you'd like. Instead of waiting until summer to roll around, you can find a way to incorporate swimwear into your daily outfits. Yes, you heard us right:

1. High-Waisted Bikini Bottoms


Topshop strappy top




Araks black bathing suit
$145 - avenue32.com




These high-waisted bottoms aren’t anything to hide! They are flirty and fun under a knee-length sheer skirt, paired with a tank top and some black pumps. Add some red lipstick for a touch of color and class.

2. Snakeskin Triangle Bikini


Sheer top
$30 - nelly.com



White torn jeans



Vix triangle bikini
$145 - net-a-porter.com



Bootie boots




Allow the cool snakeskin print on the bikini top to peek through from underneath a sheer top. It'll show off the hardware and strap detailing on the bikini, but still keep you covered up enough to go out in public. Add some distressed jeans and motorcycle boots to up the edgy vibe of the outfit, and find a bright bag that matches the bikini to bring out its color.

3. Striped One-Piece


MANGO high waisted shorts
$23 - mango.com




Topshop white shoes
$33 - topshop.com





Purple sunglasses



Just imagine wearing this outfit while you’re riding a bike to get ice cream on a sunny spring afternoon… the big bow detailing on the top of this one piece is super fun and girly. With some bright red shorts, the look is the perfect balance of nautical and preppy. To take this outfit from the beach to the streets, throw on some white sneakers, a straw hat, classic sunglasses and a neutral cross body bag.

4. Dope One-Piece



Black bathing suit
$41 - modekungen.se






Versace glasses



Channel Khloe Kardashian with a graphic one-piece and high-waist denim cutoffs. We know she’d wear this with Timberland boots, dark sunglasses and gold hoop earrings. A flannel tied around your waist can double as another layer if need be.

5. Bustier Bandeau


High waisted skirt



River Island swim suit
$24 - riverisland.com





Another celeb-inspired look, this one is all Taylor Swift; we love her ’50s pin-up style. Emulate her classic look with similar pieces... throw in a bustier bandeau bikini top! The black piping on the top goes great with a plain black circle skirt, and the lavender Ked’s are almost a perfect match to the top. To take the old-school look even further, do a bright red lip and dramatic cat eye sunglasses.

6. Crop Bikini Top


T By Alexander Wang polartec jacket
$310 - theoutnet.com



H&M slim fit black pants
$38 - hm.com





Brian Lichtenberg embroidery hat
$27 - theoutnet.com



Cropped tank style bikini tops are becoming really popular this year. They’re part crop top, part bathing suit, so it’s the ideal piece to rock on the daily. The leather detailing on this top looks cool and sleek when paired with leather pants. Try it with a jacket, like this sporty gray varsity jacket, when wearing this look. Finish the outfit off with a graphic beanie and chunky black sandals.

7. Strapless One Piece

Rag bone button front shirt dress
$295 - lagarconne.com





Boho purse



Gem necklace



It's always a disaster when you buy a dress that turns out to be so sheer that you need to wear a tank or slip under. Take advantage of this misfortune and use it as a chance to show off your newest swimsuit! A white sheer dress with a dark strapless one-piece looks super chic. Keep the look interesting with a glitzy necklace, black fringe purse and knee-high gladiator sandals.

8. Scalloped Bandeau




Kate spade flat




White pearl earrings



We love this scalloped bikini from Marysia. There’s no reason this bathing suit should only see the sun when it's beach or pool time. Wear it under a half-unbuttoned white oxford shirt to show off its cute design, without showing too much skin. Maintain the girly look of the swimsuit through out your whole outfit by adding light pink pants, bow sandals, a mint bag and pearls.

9. Caged Bikini


Free people top



Bandeau bikini



Madewell jean shorts



Vans black sneaker




A tank top with low-cut armholes is a great opportunity to show off your new bikini top instead of just having your bra showing. This top shows off the caging thanks to its loose fit. The tie in the front is a casual detail, as are the cuffs on cargo shorts. Accessorize the outfit with pieces like black Vans and unique friendship bracelets.

10. Ruffled Bandeau


Pleated skirt







Bikini tops with ruffles are kind of tricky to layer under other shirts, who why not just wear it by itself? When wearing just a bandeau like, it’s essential to balance out the bottom half of your outfit accordingly, like this high-waist tea-length skirt. The vibrant blue in the top and green in the skirt can make even the slightest tan look like a deep bronze. Pair them with a big straw hat, nude wedges and an equally vibrant red clutch for an outfit that really pops.
