MORE THAN JUST A SWIMSUIT: 3 WAYS TO STYLE YOUR SWIMSUIT ON HOLIDAY
As an island girl, I love my swimsuits just as much as the average person. And if I'm really being honest, I love them a whole lot more than anyone else.
I maintain an unrivaled relationship with all of my beachwear. Since relocating to France, this is the one thing which I've tried to tone down, but hasn't worked. What this really means is that I spend copious amounts of time daydreaming about the beach and searching for the perfect swimsuit, and I won't give a second thought to buy the ones that I really love — unless they come with a hefty price tag.
Window shopping for the perfect swimsuit 24/7 ( winter included), I make sure to get the most wears out of them once I finally make that purchase. I've curated such a huge collection in a short period of time, and have personally dubbed myself the queen of swimwear! A swimsuit is really just a waterproof leotard that we're happy to wear to the pool or beach, but rarely anywhere else. Why not make it a leotard for our everyday wear? Especially when traveling, you'd be surprised as to how much space you can save by the new outfits you can create. I've styled 3 looks to give you idea of how you can match your wardrobe items with your swimwear to maximize your wear.
LOOK 1: EVENING WALKS
In the evenings, sometimes you're never quite sure where you'll end up, so it's best to be prepared for a spontaneous dinner or cocktail session. Pairing a one shoulder suit with a flowy midi or maxi skirt can be that perfect outfit for a walk along the beach or around the city. During summer this helps you to remain cool especially in destinations with high humidity. Sandals and simple hoop earrings and a pouch (handheld or crossbody) also make for a chic finish.
LOOK 2: brunch / afternoon event look
During mid-morning to early afternoon , opting for a pop of colour never does any wrong. With off the shoulder swimsuits, you can opt for a high-waisted, straight legged pants, mini skirt, or shorts for a quick brunch or to go exploring.
