Ask Shopbop: 3 Ways to Style Swimwear

Clockwise from the right: beach, pool, and boat looks. Styled by Kirsten, Rachel, and Loni.

I have a ton of swim parties this summer, how can I stand out at each one?

You know summer’s arrived when the invites to beach and pool parties start piling up. To avoid outfit fatigue, here are my tips to keep your looks fresh from the yard to the yacht.

An outdoor beach party calls for a fun mix of prints and bright colors. Pair a Zimmermann romper and a striped L*Space bikini with a straw tote. The natural elements in the bag and the sporty cut of the suit keep the look casual and BBQ-ready.

In a more urban setting, you’ll want a more refined look: think sporty sophisticate. Throw a sheer A.L.C. sweater and pattered Torn by Ronny Kobo shorts over a Tyler Rose Swimwear bikini for a modern day-to-night look.

Stepping on a boat gives an instant feel of glamour. Channel your inner supermodel and try a sexy Thayer one-piece as a top. Add sheer Dallin Chase pants and a vintage scarf, and await your invite to a certain rap mogul’s White Party.
