If you’re parading a block-coloured swimsuit like this stunning black one-piece by Sunseeker, it can be matched with almost any pattern and design. However, make sure it has interesting details such as mesh or ruching so it doesn’t look leotard-y. You can tone this style down with an easy flowing maxi skirt, and open shirt for a cool casual look, perfect for a late-night bite down the beach. Avoid going overboard with high-heels, and try a low wedge or sandal instead.
Heading out to a party after a day on the sand? A swimsuit with a metallic fabric is an immediate attention grabber. Pair it with some black pants and killer bright heels or even a mini-skirt, and you’ll have the boys chasing you from the water to the bar.

Nothing screams summer than a bright coloured swimsuit, but when you’re going from beach to boardroom, you might need to tone it down a bit. What do you do? Wear it straight under a grey or black tailored suit. Remember, you can always button the jacket up!

Final tip: Try to look for shapes that won’t stick out when you layer clothes over it. This includes big bows and ties.
