Sun’s out, suits out! Come summertime, you practically live in your swimwear (any chance to take a dip in the pool or lounge seaside must be seized, obviously!) though you typically draw the line when it comes to the city streets. But, Kim K as our witness, it’s now perfectly acceptable to rock your fave one- or two-piece out in public. This week’s edition of Three Ways to Wear shows you how to pull the summer trend off in true It girl fashion.
How to Wear a Swimsuit for Work
There aren’t many looks that Kim Kardashian rocks that can translate to the office, but this one definitely does. Just tone down the cleavage and team your suit with high-waisted trousers for a look that seamlessly transitions from day to night.
Swimsuit on the job? Better believe it. To keep things classy, opt for a style that offers plenty of coverage, then pair alongside printed high-waisted trousers and a structured blazer to achieve a sophisticated feel. Statement studs and of-the-moment pumps are key for adding just the right amount of RN edge.

GNO and rooftop cocktails call for a festive ensemble that screams life-of-the-party. A punchy yellow skirt and wrap-around bikini top do just that, with studded sandals and abstract drop earrings adding to the carefree feel.
