We can’t deny that swimsuits are undoubtedly one of the cutest pieces of clothing we have in our closet. There’s nothing quite like flaunting a brand new bikini or maillot when you first hit the beach and feeling confident in your own body. But after the vacation ends, most of us will hide these pieces away and only bring them out again on our next island getaway.
But the great thing about fashion is that there are no rules to be followed. When styled the right way, you can totally rock your gorgeous swimwear both on and off the beach! Whether it be a casual day out in the city or an elevated evening look, a swimsuit's pretty print and flattering cut have enough room outside of just our summer wardrobe.
