How to: wear swimwear as daywear

Bring the beach feeling in your city life these summer months

What I love the most about summer is my light and fresh closet. Growing up in a Mediterranean country means a lot of time spent at the beach or in the city with really high temperatures. Having said so, I keep collecting swimsuits every year – even if my holidays at the beach have decreased to one week maximum. Especially if you live in Berlin, where the weather is not that summery at the moment, you realize you will have limited chance to show off your new swimsuit. However, as seen on the catwalks, this summer you can master your swimsuit also in the city without embarrassing yourself. So if you are wondering how to do that, remember that runway is always a constant source of inspiration for clever styling tricks. And the swimwear as a ready to wear piece is the easiest and more realistic one to realize. Just think it as a “bodysuit” under your jeans or under an open dress. Let’s say there is a lot of room for your own fun and inspiration! If you are thinking about adding your swimwear into your everyday look, here some easy looks you should try.

Wearing your swimsuit on top of a dress is always a nice option, especially if you are not sure if you will end up going to the beach – it’s always good to bea ready for everything!

A classic that never disappoints is to wear your swimsuit as a “bodysuit” under your jeans. You can pair it with nice sandals or even sneakers if you feel like! In other words, the look doesn’t say beach at all
