When the temperature rises above 25 C, jumpers are shoved back into the depths of your wardrobe and constant air-conditioning becomes a permanent household fixture, you know it’s swimwear season.
So much money is spent on the cutest swimsuits and best beach attire that the piggy bank runs out when it comes to buying actual clothing.
Here’s where we save you.
It’s simple really, forgo your standard singlet or tee and rock that swimsuit you’ve been loving, just off the beach. IZZI shows you three ways to wear your swimsuits off the beach so well people might just mistake you for a fashion blogger. Make the most of this season’s swimwear styles and see how easily the rules can be bent with a dash of good weather and lashings of sun-kissed skin.
Your bathing suit should be viewed and thought of as simply another wardrobe essential. It can be dressed up or dressed down and taken from the surf to the streets in a matter of minutes.
So, pack away your beach bag (but keep the sunnies) and get ready to rock your swimsuit in practically any situation!
Perhaps the easiest swimsuit to wear as clothing is the humble one-piece. There are so many bodysuits on the market today that people won’t even look twice when you’re sipping Negronis on a rooftop bar in the suit you’ve been beaching it in all summer. For the ultimate chic look, find a one-piece with an interesting neckline, such as our H20 piece, and let the suit make a statement by styling it down with flirty miniskirts, distressed denim shorts, or high waisted, flowing pants.
Bikinis are almost every girls summer swimwear staple, and due to it being the middle of summer, bikini tops are the perfect transitional piece from lounging poolside to mingling at a balmy evening soiree. Go casual with an A-line denim skirt and a slouchy tee, or amp up the va va voom with a maxi skirt and plenty of accessories, this look perfectly matched, we think, with our Taupe velvet bandeau bikini top.
Don’t neglect your bottoms either – pair a high waisted or high cut bikini bottom with a cute bikini crop top such as the Oxygen set and simply add a sheer dress for the ultimate athleisure look. Swimwear? Heaven’s no! Get away with these stylish looks before the temperature drops!
