The #1 Way Fashion Girls Will Be Wearing Their Swimsuits This Summer

Whether you’re on vacation or not, half the fun of wearing a swimsuit is figuring out how to style it for everything from that quick walk to the beach to a festive pool party. I mean, it is if you ask any Who What Wear editor, as swimsuit styling is something we love to talk about the second summer rolls around.

And this summer, after chatting with Amelia Lindquist, design director of Solid & Striped, we learned that three-piece suit styling is one of the biggest trends in the swimwear world. “I’m excited about three-piece suit styling a bikini with a matching cover-up,” she told us. “In our Spring II collection, this can be done with our printed cabana shirts. For our summer collection, which will be available in May, the same cabana silhouette will be offered, but I took the concept a step further and let it evolve into an anorak. I love the crossover of swim into apparel.”

Based on my market research, it’s clear that this swimsuit styling trend transcends the three-piece set Amelia called out—it also includes matching your cover-ups and beach accessories to your swimsuit. From midi skirts to silky pants and bucket hats to button-downs, this matchy-matchy situation is one we can predict will take over Instagram once we’re in the heat of summer. Ahead, shop some of our favorite combinations; then sit back and relax as we watch this trend come to fruition in the coming months.
