It's always been default to think of swimwear as something apart from the rest of your wardrobe: one distinct ensemble to wear on its own, on occasion. We think of swimwear as an extension of your style, a building block for a summer wardrobe to wear all day and way beyond the pool. Here are three ways to think about it.
Bottom line, swimwear should never be a style downgrade. If you're going to be poolside all day, go with a flattering suit with classic lines like this Madeline two-piece in copper from The Ones Who. It's the perfect poolside counterpart to your already meticulous wardrobe.
Vacation life's rough, no? Instead of constantly running to your room to change, try swimwear that pairs well with a versatile skirt or dress, like this Christopher Esber favorite. The combination makes for an all-around casual resort look for hopping from pool to hotel bar to tennis court to midnight dance party with ease.
One step further is super sleek swimwear that can pull double duty as the foundation of an elevated away-from-water look. You can maximize your beach time, skip the salt spray blow dry routine, throw on pants like these cream beauties from Nanushka, accessorize and still make it to dinner at that new hotspot a cab ride away.
