Temps are rising and the sun is shining, so obviously we’re all spending a lot more time in our swimwear trying to keep cool. If you’re looking to get added mileage out of your beachwear, we’ve got a little tip for you: take your swimwear from the sand to the streets! Scroll down to see some chic ways to style your fave swimsuit as a top or bodysuit and take it from the seaside to street side!


It’s safe to say that the one-piece swimsuit is back, and she’s here to stay, so why not really showcase this style by wearing it like a bodysuit! Take a tip from blogger @joandkemp and get a fest-ready look by adding denim shorts atop the Beach Riot Karissa Yellow Floral Print Tie-front Cutout One-Piece Swimsuit! Wanna go from swimming to grabbing drinks with your squad? Layer the Tavik Lela Red One Piece Swimsuit under a sexy little leather skirt like the Free People Retro Black Vegan Leather Bodycon Mini Skirt for a dance floor ready look!


Have you ever found yourself chillin’ by the beach, then suddenly realized it was happy hour and you HAD to go get drinks with your girls? No need to worry, just add your fave denim shorts atop a cute one-piece like the Lulus Check Yourself Green and White Cactus Print One-Piece Swimsuit as seen on major babe @mckennablue. You can even pull off this look with a two-piece! An off-the-shoulder swim top like the Amuse Society Emma Blue Striped Off-the-Shoulder Bikini Top is so chic and trendy that it can easily double as a crop top when paired with high-waisted cutoffs, just like @leximars did!


Heading to the fest? Go from poolside chillin’ to dancing front row by wrapping a skirt atop your bikini! We love the ethereal look of the Ete Swimwear Tula White Lace Bikini Top paired with the Lulus Take the Caicos White Shell Print Cover-Up Maxi Skirt, as seen on @joandkemp. For a more flirty vibe a la @alis_jo, try out the Lulus Walk on Air Blue and White Striped Wrap Mini Skirt with the Rhythm My Bralette Denim Blue Bikini Top, and you’ll be looking cool and feeling cool while you have fun in the sun!
