So summer is swimsuit season – this we all know. But have you thought about merging your costume with corporate wear? Why reserve that retro swimsuit that you splurged on last month for beach days? We say it should go straight from the beach to the boardroom! Skeptical? We’ll show you show.
1 Reinvent the wetsuit
Are you a CEO-in-training from 9-5, and a surfer girl the rest of the time? Then you most likely own a rash guard which, thanks to the likes of big brands like Billabong, now come in a variety of supercool tropical prints. Neoprene has been trending for seasons now, so this is a pretty easy way of incorporating surfwear from the waves to the workplace. Style with tailored trousers and heels to keep things professional.
2 Make the cut-out swimsuit even cooler
That super sexy cut-out swimsuit is about to get even more style points. Make the most of the peek-a-boo detailing by layering a graphic shirt underneath your costume – bonus points if the print is on display. Pair with plisse trousers and a blazer for the office.
3 Take the bikini to the boardroom
We’re being serious! However, a bandeau style is the only way to go here. Style it over that ruffled blouse that you love, or use it to print-clash like a pro.
4 The one-piece wonder
Possibly the easiest way to rock your swimwear at work. Treat your one-piece like a bodysuit, and wear accordingly. Or, layer underneath a breezy summer suit and mules. Toss aside as soon as its 5pm, and swop out your laptop for a swan inflatable.
