Swimsuit Accessories: How To Style Your Swimwear

If you want to make a statement at the beach this summer, you'll need swimwear that makes you feel amazing. Swimsuits are often the first thing that comes to mind when we think of summer, and you can have a lot of fun mixing and combining your swimwear to look even more fabulous. 

With the arrival of warmer weather, now is the ideal moment to flaunt your physique and feel amazing. While selecting a suit that creates a dramatic statement is simple, how you complement it with accessories is key to creating a genuinely memorable look. 

Here are some suggestions on how to put your swim accessories together.

Sun Hats

Sunscreen and a cool, shady sun hat will protect you from harmful UV rays while being a perfect accent to your beach day wardrobe. Sun hats provide both protection and functional style, making them a useful and fashionable addition to your swimsuit. 

Wide-brimmed hats, Panama-type hats, floppy hats, straw hats, roll-up hats, and more styles of sun hats are available. Take note of the Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) of whichever hat you pick, and don't forget to apply sunscreen!

How to Style Them

For a fun look, pair our Soleil Twist Keyhole Push Up One Piece or Sunscape Lace Back One Shoulder One Piece with an extra-wide large-brimmed hat that’ll give you the ultimate old Hollywood look. 

Pair our Mediterranean Breeze Bandeau Midkini Top with a straw Panama hat for a laid-back style that will have it deep in vacation mode! 

Wear a wide-brimmed roll-up straw visor with our Terra Italia Reversible Bandeau Bikini Top and a matching Terra Italia Reversible High Waist Bottom if you prefer sun hats that are easy to pack in your beach tote.

Sunglasses

​​When you go to the beach, don't forget to carry your favorite sunglasses. Sunglasses and swimwear go together like PB and J. They’ll not only protect your eyes from harmful UV rays, but they’ll also provide a bit of glitz for your entire beach style. 

To match them with your swimsuit, choose from modern and fashionable sunglasses, big and bold sunglasses, or chic and classy sunglasses. There are so many styles to sort through!

How to Style Them

Pair our Island Goddess Underwire Scoop Front Lingerie One Piece with classic cat-eye sunglasses for a professional beach appearance. 

For a laid-back summer beach style, mix our Twisted Bamboo Lingerie One Piece with fashionable aviator sunglasses. 

For a fresh look, pair our Tropics Of Tropez Banded Halter Triangle Top or Catalina Coast High-Neck Keyhole Tankini Top with huge and bold square sunglasses.

Jewelry

Jewelry is one of the easiest ways to add a little special flair to your swimwear, seeing that most bikinis look great with earrings, bracelets, and necklaces. Jewelry can complement each other and help to complete any ensemble. 

The perfect piece of jewelry can even help highlight your best features!

Earrings

Pick earrings that will bolster your look and add a touch of glamour. Simple gold hoop earrings, jewel drop earrings, and even pearl or diamond studs can add stylish femininity to your vacation one-piece or bikini. 

If you wish to wear statement earrings like larger golden hoops, don't be afraid to wear it with a suit that’s a little more daring.

How to Style Them

Wear our Apulia Mix High Neck Keyhole One Piece with huge golden earrings to draw attention to the swimsuit's nautical-inspired pattern. 

Alternatively, wear your embellished hoops with Paradise City Ruffle Skirted Bottom for a bright look. 

Lastly, jewel drop earrings look stunning when worn with our Capri Stripe Strappy Back Midkini Top and High Waist Bottom in our stripe pattern.

Bracelets

Bracelets can be used with your swimsuit to create a distinctive look, add spice, or just bring attention to your personal style. There's no need to wear anything too showy or heavy, and certainly nothing that will tangle in the waves or shatter if you take a swim. 

To guarantee your bracelet stays in place, choose attractive bracelets such as a traditional golden hoop bangle, a little golden chain-link bracelet, a delicate silver cuff, or even a bracelet with clasps.

How to Style Them

For a breezy, carefree beach look, pair our Isla Del Sol Multi-Strap Cross-Back One Piece with a golden cuff bracelet. 

Our By The Sea Twist Bandeau Top will look great with a beautiful gemstone bracelet with a clasp. 

Wear a traditional silver bangle with our Moonlit Silhouette One Shoulder Keyhole One Piece if you prefer silver jewelry.

Necklaces

A simple suit can be instantly dressed up with the proper jewelry — this we know. Because a necklace accentuates your neckline, you can use it with a variety of swimsuits. 

Our one-piece swimsuits, underwire tankinis, bandeau-kinis, and bikini tops are among them. Delicate gold pendants and jewel necklaces can offer elegance while highlighting your neckline.

How to Style Them

Our Soleil Ruffle Bandeau Top is perfect for showcasing a long neck and complementing gold pendant jewelry. 

A vibrant blue-green pendant necklace complements Tropics Of Tropez Underwire Over-The-Shoulder Top and matching High-Waist Bottom, making the swimsuit's flowery colors shine. 

For a refined look, Island Goddess Lace Back One Shoulder One Piece with a delicate gold necklace.

Cover-Ups

A cover-up is another item you can pair with your swimwear. In fact, that’s what it’s made for! 

During your days by the sea, our cover-ups are ideal for layering over your swim top or one-piece swimsuit so you can quickly transition from beachside walks to dinner dates. These are a great way to dress up your beach swimwear without overpowering it.

How to Style Them

Our Beaded Covers V-Neck Tunic cover-up allows you to relax with a good summer read while lounging in your one-piece swimsuit or swim top and bottom. 

While soaking up the summer sun, opt for the Mod For Dot Convertible Shirt Dress cover-up for a more airy casual style. 

For a sophisticated and stylish appearance, pair this Coastal Covers V-Neck Tunic with a floppy summer hat. 

You can also always try out a skirt if you’re looking for less coverage? Our Ocean Oasis Pareo Wrap is a great way to go to the beach while still looking ready to hit the pier stores.

Conclusion

Accessories will emphasize your features and make your swimwear pop, whether you're seeking a fresh beach look or a stylish way to show off your new swimsuit. Choose specific items to match your swimwear if you're eager to take your beach look to the next level.
