With the sunnier days and higher temps lately (finally!), summer has been on my brain. And with summer comes vacations, pool days, beach layouts, and staycations. Whatever your summer plans bring you, whether you’re exploring the Amalfi Coast or sipping iced coffees in your backyard, there’s a swimsuit for you. And better yet, a swimsuit on sale! Everlane has majorly marked down their suits (30% off-but it doesn’t last long!) and I couldn’t help but pick out the most classic ones and show you how to wear them. Hot girl summer? I don’t know her. Try classic girl summer instead.
1. two-piece black swimsuit + linen shorts + strappy sandals + straw hat + cat-eye sunglasses + gold jewelry
If you’re someone that likes to wear two pieces but you’re interested in elevating your triangle string bikini, consider opting for this v-neck swimsuit top instead. The thicker straps and more substantial chest area tend to look classier than something that’s “barely there”.
With matching bottoms, this swimsuit will look sleek and sophisticated at the beach or pool! For a chic extra layer, throw on a pair of linen high-waisted shorts to pull this swimwear-turned-outfit together.
Of course, no beachwear is complete without a straw hat and strappy sandals. Cat-eye sunglasses lend a vintage touch to this classic outfit. Top off your look with a gold pendant necklace and matching gold ring. Now just imagine that you’re headed up the cobblestone path from the beach in Positano to grab some gelato.
2. red one-piece swimsuit + striped linen shirt dress + sandals + straw bag + straw hat + gold jewelry + vintage sunglasses
No matter the swimsuit trends, a one-piece square neck is a classic silhouette that will never go out of style. If you like to have some fun with your vacation style, consider getting this bold little number to make a statement.
This striped linen shirt dress is not only a coverup but can be part of your actual outfit too. Buttoned up, it will look like a chic little number! Taking inspiration from Parisian summer fashion, pair your swimsuit with matching vintage sunglasses.
Gold looks especially great with red and you can’t go wrong with these gold hoops or seashell-inspired gold pendant. When it comes to footwear, choose a pair of slides that will be easy to wipe clean like this beautiful brown leather pair. (Just be careful around water!)
3. strappy swimsuit + high waist linen pants + straw clutch + cat-eye sunglasses + sandals + straw hat + gold jewelry
Coordinating accessories like gold earrings, a gold bangle, and a pearl necklace only add to the classiness of this outfit. For a unique take on a straw bag, consider carrying around a straw clutch instead.
4. red two-piece swimsuit + linen shirt dress + straw hat + sandals + sunglasses + straw bucket bag + gold jewelry
For a bold yet classic color and a timeless style that looks like it could be worn in Nice or Cannes, opt for this square neck red top with matching botoms. A linen shirt dress is an effortless pairing that reads put together yet chic.
5. black one-piece + linen shirt dress + lace-up sandals + sunglasses + gold jewelry + straw hat + straw bag
