How to Wear a Swimsuit Away From the Pool

With summer in full-swing, it’s time to break out your swimsuits. It’s increasingly acceptable to wear swimsuits beyond the water, with celebrities from Selena Gomez to Elle Fanning fast-embracing this cool new trend. LUXE Models tells you how to wear a swimsuit away from the pool.

Dress for the streets

With a good-one piece, you can throw together a look that’s great for the streets. For pointers on how to pull this off, look to Selena Gomez. In Style points out that recently, the American popstar teamed a one-piece with cut-offs and a gold-velvet blaze, creating a really casual, yet cool outfit!

Glam it up

Swimsuits can work just as well in the evening. To cultivate the perfect look, glam up a one-piece with statement jewellery, breath-taking stiletto heels and a bold-printed skirt and you’ll soon be ready to hit the pubs and clubs. Team with tights and a tailored-blazer if you want to get really sophisticated!

Go beach-ready

When you’re heading to the beach, you might want to put your swimsuit on beforehand, so you can get in the water as soon as possible. Just add a sarong, some leather sandals and a killer pair of sunglasses to develop a great look that you can shed easily the minute you hit the sand!

Find great swimwear

You’re never going to rock this trend right, without first making sure that you have some awesome swimwear in your wardrobe. When shopping for a bikini or a one-piece, choose the right size and cut for your body, so you can layer it up easily away from the pool! Experiment in the changing room with other clothes, so you can see how your chosen piece will look as part of an outfit!

Really experiment

Swimsuits are really versatile, so you can really play around when you wear them beyond the pool. Experiment with different skirts, jeans, tops, accessories, jewellery and shoes to find a style that really works for you. By doing this, you can gain the confidence you need to own this fabulous trend!
