Ask Shopbop: Swimwear Off the Beach


Indah swimsuit, Blank Denim shorts, K. Jacques sandals, Vanessa Mooney necklace, Melissa Odabash hat.

I’ve got beach styling down pat, but how can I push myself, fashion wise, and wear my swimwear off the sand?

Swimsuits can make fantastic layering items for the summer months. A crocheted style, like the one above from Indah, has terrific texture and pairs nicely back to cutoff shorts. Other options for layering a one-piece are casual skirts, high-waisted shorts, off-shoulder sweaters, and exaggerated tank-style maxi dresses. I love to layer bohemian jewelry and hats or bags of natural fibers to reinforce the playful beach vibe. Strive for balance in your look so as to not appear barely dressed. Example: while a one-piece that offers more coverage can pair back to shorts, bikini tops should be accompanied by loose tanks, long skirts, or easy pants.
