One Piece Swimsuit

The right one piece style can simply double as a body suit. One piece swimsuit styles that work particular well as body suits are strapless, one shoulder, lace up, criss cross, v neck, wrap around, and scoop neck.

DENIM SHORTS  Wear a lace up or simple scoop neck one piece with high waisted denim shorts for a casual, laid back look. Throw on a cool pair of sneakers or Birkenstock slides for a fun, effortless style. 

MAXI SKIRT  A one shoulder or strapless one piece looks amazing paired with a maxi skirt for day or evening dressing. Showing off a little skin with a shoulder baring swimsuit is an elegant look that makes you feel sexy and seductive. 

WIDE LEG PANTS  A wrap around or criss cross style works beautifully to create a sophisticated look with high waisted, wide leg pants. Channel a little Coco Chanel styling with masculine trousers juxtaposed with a truly feminine top.

KAFTAN  Wear a simple scoop or V-neck one piece under a low cut kaftan to show just a hint of your swimsuit and create a smooth silhouette under clothing. This is an easy way to effortlessly take you from the beach to lunch or cocktail hour. 

JEWELLERY  Add some jewellery to your outfits to elevate them for any occasion and to reflect your unique sense of style and personality. Read our blog to discover more about how to use jewellery to style your swimwear.

Bikini Top

While this might be a daring style choice for some, embracing a bikini top as an actual top can look amazing. High waisted trends make wearing a cropped top so much easier. A high waisted pant, skirt or pair of shorts does much of the work for you, providing coverage for most of your mid section.

A longer line bikini top like our crop wrap top or double frill bikini top offer even more coverage so you’re only showing a minimal amount of skin. The frill bikini top is also a great choice as it doesn’t fit close to the body, rather it skims over, so your bare skin isn’t so noticeable.

The most important rule for wearing a bikini as a top is to ooze confidence. If you look comfortable and self-assured, you can pull off anything with style. Baring your midriff is a bold move that attracts attention, so be prepared to turn heads and be showered in compliments.

Swim Shorts

Bike pants are having a fashion moment and our comfortable long line swim pants are an absolute best seller. Wear these swim shorts as active wear or practical day wear with a cropped t-shirt or longline singlet.

Choose your preferred length from boyleg, bike short, or 3/4 length pant. Simple black slimline pants are a wardrobe staple, so you'll be sure to find some unique ways to style these practical bottoms. 


Tankini Top and Rash Vests

Tankini tops are a great option for off the beach styling. Our tankinis work beautifully as tops and we particularly love the 3 tier style worn with a relaxed pant for effortless summer dressing.

Fitted tankini tops can be styled the same way as a one piece with your favourite skirt, pants, jeans, or shorts. A tankini rather than a one piece, offers a little more freedom of movement and the choice to wear your preferred underwear.

A short or long sleeve rash vest can work as a sporty, lightweight jacket to keep on hand when you need coverage from the elements. Throw it on over activewear or roll it up into a bag when you're heading home on a summer's evening and you need a little extra warmth.
