11 Swimsuits That Make the Best Summer Tops
Swimsuit style has come a long way, baby. Far from its functional beginnings, water wear is now as legitimate a fashion category as any other — so much so that the line between swimwear and streetwear is becoming harder and harder to discern. In the last few seasons, it seems designers are aiming to give us more for our money with suits that look like they are equally as appropriate for a night on the town as they are for a day at the beach. 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.

2. Mara Hoffman Aya Brushstroke-Print Halter One-Piece Swimsuit ($295): This suit is a work of art — so why would you limit it to just pool time? We’re envisioning it with cropped white trousers and high heel sandals for a very colorful night out.
