Summer is right around the corner, which means it’s time to bust out your bikinis. TBH, given the rising COVID-19 cases, we're unsure as to when we'll be able to hit the beach this season; but since we're living in a tropical country, it never hurts to educate yourself on how to put together stylish beach 'fits.

While cover-ups and accessories are just as important, the two-piece bikini set itself is the star of the show. And with right styling, you can create a myriad of comfortable and versatile summer looks that will have you looking your best while enjoying the sun, sea, and sand.

Ahead, we’ve rounded up a list of celebrity-approved bikini outfit combinations to try!

12 Celeb-Approved Ways to Style Your Bikini:

1. Solid-colored bikini top + floral sarong

For hot summer days, we suggest you pair your bikini with a fun, printed sarong like Jessy Mendiola. These thigh-baring cover-ups create an illusion of longer legs and show just enough skin if you're one to keep modesty in check.

2. String bikini top + tennis skirt

For a fun, sporty look this summer, opt for a chic tennis skirt as a cover-up. Complete the look with a pair of sunnies and clean white sneakers for a somewhat sporty beach babe vibe.

3. Wrap-around tie-string bikini top + high-waist midi skirt

A tie-string bikini that you can wrap around your waist allows for some pretty fashion-forward looks. Pair with a high-waist midi skirt and further elevate it with gold jewelry, a woven bag, and a hat to complete your beachside OOTD.

5. Bikini set + sheer maxi dress + mules

Looking for an easy-to-wear beach look that shows off your bikini in a subtle yet stylish way? Try a sheer maxi dress! This chic 'fit is an easy way to flaunt your swimsuit while still looking “covered up.”

6. Bandeau bikini top + matching top and midi skirt + slides

Stay cool for the summer in a bandeau top plus a set of co-ords, as seen on Mikka Padua. Opt for boxy, loose-fitting silhouettes in breathable fabrics for a polished and relaxed weekend-worthy look.

8. String bikini top + button-down + high-waist trousers

A simple white button-down shirt and high-waist trousers, paired with a classic white bikini top, is a foolproof combo when you’re at the beach. You can easily transition this look for an evening affair, say, a candlelit dinner for two at the resort's beachside restaurant!

9. String bikini + crochet mesh pants

Elevate the classic white string bikini with a statement crochet piece, like this pair of trousers from Revolve, as seen on Kelsey Merritt. Playing with unique styles and textures can easily up the ante and make a strong statement for the summer. Not to mention, crochet is definitely cool again!

11. Crochet bikini top + shorts + wide-brim hat + sneakers

Don’t be afraid to play with textures, prints, and colors this summer. Take your cue from Sue Ramirez who opted for a crocheted bikini top in lavender, which she paired with rainbow-hued shorts. She kept her accessories minimal and topped off her look with a wide-brim straw hat and clean white sneakers.

12. Bikini top + high-waist denim shorts + bucket hat

Classic denim shorts are a no-brainer. Take cues from Rei Germar and team your halter bikini top with black denim cutoffs and a matching bucket hat for that added sun protection.
