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.

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.

How to Wear a Swimsuit for a Night Out

Model Josephine Shriver transformed a strappy bikini top into a killer Coachella ensemble, teaming it with a sheer cropped blouse and leather mini for extra 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.

How to Wear a Swimsuit for the Weekend

Leave it to Shay Mitchell to make a bikini top seem like the obvious option for kickin’ it off-duty. This Pretty Little Liars starlet channeled the ’90s by busting a crocheted top out with a mom jeans, slides, and round sunnies FTW.

Babe alert! Whether you’re picnicking in the park or brunching out on the terrace, look to embellished jeans and this sleek two-piece top to see you through. Dress it up with a layered necklace, bright buckled slides, and a French-girl approved Bembien bag for a chic summery look that comes together in seconds.
