Ways To Wear One-Piece Swimsuit for ANY Occasion

Summer is getting closer than ever and some of us we’ll be lounging by the beach when the time comes. And for a demographic who is so body conscious, we women love the time when we can flounce around in our bikinis. But for those who are either conservative or hesitant in joining the huge summer bandwagon, one-piece swimsuits is here. And the swimwear is not a terrible throwback anymore!

One-piece swimsuits are classy and vintage chic. They save us from the additional hassle of putting sunscreen on our stomachs. And you can layer it up with any garments for any occasion! So, basically, with a few accessories and layering one-piece swimsuits can be a great transition garment from the beach to the streets or the streets to the beach.

Here are amazing ways to wear one-piece swimsuits for any events and places.

For the Beach

Depending on your body type, a one-piece swimsuit will look flattering and alluring on you.

For the slim and small-chested ladies, you have two choices: for emphasis on your curves, wear a one-piece with printed horizontal stripes and for amping up your cleavage, you can add layers and ruffles at the top of the suit.

For the busty women, you’d want to emphasize your cleavage and at the same time keep it a tad bit subtle. V-neck swimsuits will do greatly.

For the curvy ladies, you can wear any dark solid color like black or a suit with asymmetrical/geometrical prints.

For casual wear

We’ve all known that jeans, shorts and skirts are great beach cover ups. But, hey, should you ever want to head to the town, that ensemble is great for strolling around the shops and hanging out with friends. No need to change and you would still look stylish. Great, isn’t it?

Everything from the white high-neck one-piece suit, the low-heel slip-on shoes and black fedora screams cool and sleek. But the cuffed overalls with ripped pants, one strap undone, gives the exact amount of casualness this outfit needs.

The prints-and-plains combination with one color in common of both pieces give it an illusion of a two-toned dress. And while the curvy cut at the side of the swimsuit gives a sexy look, it’s being balanced out by the absolutely feminine full skirt.

For formal/semi-formal events

There are moments when, between vacation by the beach, you get to be called out for a formal or semi-formal events. And you either have no more formal dress or you want to look summery formal. The trick to using your one-piece swimsuit as a top is to find one that is silky and dressy. Find one that is made of a thick and opaque material–unless-of course you’re going for sheer and sexy. Also, proper accessorization is futile.

The spiky statement necklace and summery one-piece is definitely festive and unlikely to be used for formal. But the tailored pants, simple strapped heels, and minimal accessories toned the outfit down to make it appropriate for formal and semi-formal events.

Another advantage with one-piece swimsuits is that it’s great to pair with fitting pieces such as the pencil skirt below. Slip on a blazer and it’ll be great for office. Take off the jacket and you’re ready for hanging out in the night club.
