The 5 Best Swimsuit “Outfits” for Every Type of Beach Occasion

26/07/2021 Off By Dasha Redkous

Planning a day at the beach is exciting, especially when you have the right swimsuit to get you through the day. While there are so many great looks to try, it may be hard to decide on a winning seaside outfit. To make things easier, allow the occasion to influence what swimsuit you choose. For example, if your beach experience is an all-day social event, then assembling a strategic swimsuit that can convert to a land outfit will be in your best interest. When you organize an ensemble, bring pieces that can get you through the day and evening with confidence. Here are the five best swimsuit “outfits” for every type of occasion.

 

1. Swim Dress

When you’re not sure how much time you’ll be spending in the water or at the barbecue on the beach, a women’s swim dress is a safe bet for your next outing. This swimwear can easily take you from playing in the waves to the boardwalk to grab a hot slice of pizza. Because your swim dress is so versatile, there’s no need for a cover-up or shorts. All you need is a pair of sandals and maybe a hat, and you’re ready to go! This is especially true when your swim dress is made of moisture-wicking material that dries quickly. Pick one that is all black and you have the little black dress of the land and sea.

 

2. Blouson Tops

If you need a swimsuit that can perform like swimwear but look like a shirt, then a blouson top fits the bill. A blouson top offers the same coverage as a tankini top but is loose around the waist, much like a standard blouse that you would wear when you’re not in the water. When your seaside adventures become an evening escapade with some shopping and dining, a blouson top makes it easy to look fashionable without having to do multiple outfit changes. Simply bring a cute skirt or a pair of shorts, and you have a perfect summer outfit you can wear in many places.

 

3. Swim Shorts and Leggings

For any active beachgoer, the discomfort of wearing standard shorts over a wet bikini bottom is well-known. It can take hours for your normal pair of pants to feel comfortably dry. However, this problem can be fixed quickly if you get a cute pair of women’s swim shorts. When you have a bottom that resembles what you wear on the streets but has the convenience of a fast-drying material, you can take your suit from the waves to the store in a flash. This type of swimsuit outfit is also extremely convenient when there may not be an opportunity for a quick change.

While you’re planning your next beach vacation, grab yourself this major convenience factor and save yourself some stress the next time you have a long day at the beach. Want to get a pair of shorts that are something in between leggings and short shorts? Then consider getting long board shorts, which will provide you the coverage you need without feeling too tight.

 

4. Tankini Tops

Summer and tank tops go together naturally, so wearing a tankini top to the beach and beyond simply makes sense. There are many styles of tankini tops that look exactly like a shirt or blouse that you could wear out shopping or even to the office, especially if you select a high neck or modest cut. Today’s tankini tops go above and beyond anything you have seen in the past. You can find stunning black v-neck tankini tops that you absolutely get away with wearing to work with a cardigan. Cute patterns like polka dots and florals that are quintessential crowd-pleasers are at your disposal. Match this with a quick-dry swim skirt or your favorite shorts, and you can quit the waves and grab some lunch without much thinking about your outfit change.

 

5. Cover-Ups

If the occasion calls for a fun bikini set but you still need some type of outfit for the rest of the day’s events, then you can solve your problem with a women’s cover-up. These quick-drying dresses are easy to put on over any swimsuit. They look and perform just like any other dress that you would wear during the summer too. It’s always a good idea to have a cover-up on hand when you go to the beach because you never know what is going to head your way. Having an optional, fully functional outfit on hand gives you so more freedom to go anywhere on a whim — because many of the best adventures come from surprises.
