From asymmetrical straps to ruffle accents, offerings are pretty, practical, and financially prudent (a triple-digit price tag is a lot easier to justify when you can wear your purchase outside the water). Ahead, 11 swimsuits that will look just as good with a skirt or jeans as they do with a sarong and sandals.
