In the wake of athleisure wear, which finds its place in the ready-to-wear section, swimsuit tops in the swimsuit section are emerging in all seasons with their alternative function to crop tops and bralettes.
Taking inspiration from actress Priyanka Chopra’s Desi Girl style, pair your bikini top with a matching or contrasting saree and put a spin on the traditional blouse style like actor Ananya Panday. Perfect for your friend’s beach wedding, crown it with a stack of cash on your wrist.
Throw a black leather blazer over your embroidered bikini top and pair it with black pants like actress Tara Sutaria for a daring biker vibe that will instantly turn heads. Accessorize your outfit with a choker, high ponytail and heeled boots.
Cozy in coordinates
Don’t want to draw attention to your outfit, but still want to try this trend? Take notes from fashion blogger Valeria Lipovetsky, who paired a coordinating ensemble of a beige bandeau top and flared pants. Opt for a pair of green stilettos to complete the look in a pop of color.
shine for the night
For your next girls night out, take inspiration from fashion blogger Juhi Godambe and wear a black bikini top under a black and silver mesh long sleeve top and silver high waisted pants. Nothing screams party all night comfortably like this look.
Tailored to your vacation style, invest in a bikini top and super high-waisted skirt set that looks fresh and tailor-made for tropical getaways. It can be layered with a simple white shirt for a more boujee effect, like fashion blogger Kritika Khuranna.
Like fashion blogger Riya Jain, your one-shoulder tie bikini top can be worn with a maxi skirt with a thigh-high slit to amp up your oomph quotient. This look would be perfect for a day at the beach, dinner, or even a concert.
The stylists talk
Instead of a baby t-shirt, pair a bandeau top with loose high-waisted jeans.
A strapless style bikini top can be easily worn with a blazer ensemble, if the top is a little too revealing.
A one-shoulder bikini top will easily transition from beach wear to evening wear when worn with the right accessories.
