How to Get the Most Bang For Your Buck With a One-Piece Swimsuit This Summer
So, you invested in a one-piece swimsuit you really like. And maybe wearing it three to four times at the beach this Summer just isn't showing it enough love. We get that. Lately, we've been inspired by some of our favorite street style stars and supermodels who rock swimwear easily under jeans and with high-waisted trousers in the PM.
Swimsuits are great because they're usually pretty structured and they keep everything held in tight. That means clean lines for your going out look and perhaps a sexy slip of cleavage too. Ahead, we rounded up a handful of ways you can get more bang for your buck in a one-piece. Spoiler: Penelope Cruz has a great idea for wearing that neon maillot to work! Read on for a few simple lessons, then shop some pieces we think would work wonderfully for this hack.
Travel with a simple one on vacations, like Kourtney Kardashian, that you can work with vibrant maxi skirts or playfully printed bottoms.
Wear your neon one-piece under sophisticated workwear for a bold twist like Penelope Cruz.
Side ties and cutouts give your high-waisted trousers a sexy kick.
Give the drop-waist trend a try and show a little hip-cleavage with a high-leg one-piece.
You can travel in your one-piece (especially if you're headed some place warm) to feel comfortable and secure on a long flight like Ashley Graham. Swimsuits hold everything in place.
Go for a sporty look by wearing yours with track pants, but make it street appropriate with a pair of heeled booties a la Gigi Hadid in Tommy Hilfiger.
Be bold, and take both your swimsuit and cover-up to the street complete with slides and sunglasses to let them all know you just came from the beach.
Use a brightly colored one-piece to accent your accessories, like a pair of statement boots or a belt with a racing stripe.
Work one under a neutral trench and trousers with heels in the Fall to achieve a boss lady outfit with sex appeal. Emily Ratajkowski's got a handle on it, see?
