Welcome to the STYLELOGUEOFF DUTY SWIMWEAR!

On this June issue, the STYLELOGUE ladies, Cortney, Mary and I restyled swimwear pieces, to stretch the wardrobe closet in an entire new different level.

That’s right! Swimwear is not worn just to the beaches or lounging by the poolside anymore. It can be restyled from casual to work events, as long your style game is strong. Allow the STYLELOGUE possè to inspire you!

LINGERIE STREET-STYLE

With the inception of the bodysuit, street-style has adopted a new way to wear undergarments. Bralettes layered under sheer pieces, corsets cinching over dresses and sports bra under blazers, worn to all sorts of occasions (see above photo).

BEACHWEAR DAYWEAR

This is where thinking outside of the box happens, as we brainstorm the next upcoming trend. The idea was, why not step up the swim game and wear the one piece swimsuit as day wear. Crazy, am I right? In fact, even the Editorialist (see above photo) was on the same track! Scroll down and see how we addressed the trend in our own ways.

FLORAL SAFARAI

The Antoinette lacy one piece swimsuit from Mossimo, has all the elements I was looking for: feminine colors and lingerie details. This floral print is not a common pattern you see on swimwear. However, it works here and passes for a bodysuit! Oh and those sexy lacing at the center front is so HOT! I don’t have a big boobs, so the detail works fine. If you are larger in chest area, you might want to consider a different style with more coverage.

I wore a cropped safari olive green jacket over the one-piece suit. It’s light weight and perfect for those cool summer nights. The length hits perfect at waist, just enough cover-up I needed. I wanted a rounded shoulder silhouette for a relaxed casual look. Did you check out those giant cargo pockets!? They reminded me of the safari trend, which was a hit six years ago. They’re coming back strong, so watch out for it.

These poplin high paper waist pants with self tie created an illusion of longer legs and hid that unwanted muffin top. I love the elastic waistband for easy comfort. It creates a gathered look to give more ease around the waist for the extra slice of cake. Casual comfort is key for stuffing my face!

Most importantly, I’ve realized I’ve been matchy-matchy in the accessories department. Take these mint green suede sandals [similar] and the pink quilted bag [similar]. I’ve matched them back to the color story of the swimsuit. Blame it on my mom who used to style her clothes this way. Now, I’ve taken notice that I am becoming just like her. Honestly, it’s a no brainer and makes life so much easier. Thanks mom!
