How to Style: One Piece Swimsuits ft. Adore Me10:48 PM
I hope you are all having a fantastic week! It's been crazy hot here lately, after a fickle few days of cloudy then sunny then cloudy then sunny then rainy weather. Seriously, the weather can be more indecisive than me staring at a menu in a restaurant with the waiter hovering over me forcing me to choose. The struggle is real guys.
I've been very obsessed with Instagram lately. In my free time, I'm constantly scrolling through and double tapping. I never thought that I would become this obsessed, but I am. It's such a great way to see what other people are up to, and to find sources of inspiration. One thing that I've been noticing is the trend of one-piece swimsuits. They've resurfaced as the current style to wear. Seeing as my jumpsuit obsession hasn't died down yet, it was only a matter of time before one-piece swimsuits caught my eye.
When I was younger, I wasn't too fond of this style. I think it was for the same reason that makes jumpsuits slightly flawed in my eyes. Meaning, it is a hassle to have to use the bathroom. Yes, it all comes down to that again. Sorry guys, but you know it's true. Bathroom issues is also why I like to wear belts only around my waist, and not through the loops of my pants.
Tangent aside, there are so many ways to style one-piece swimsuits to personalize them. You can just simply don a one-piece and call it a day, but if you happen to come across a "Who Wore it Better?" situation, don't you want to win? I know I do. Life's not always a competition, but sometimes it is. Plus, accessorizing is another way to further self-expression to personalize your look and make it more you.
Adore Me is a brand that offers a wide range of swimsuits, sleepwear, and lingerie to choose from. They have some really great one-piece swimsuits that would be perfect to wear at the beach for these last bits of summer. You can never have too many swimsuits because with differing styles, colors, and designs, you cannot just settle with one.
To style a one-piece swimsuit, accessories are key. Yeah you might wear a shirt or some form of coverup over your swimsuit before you get to the beach, but that doesn't really enhance the swimsuit. It mostly covers it up.
One basic way to accessorize and show your personal style is through jewelry. Whatever jewelry you choose reflects the look you are going for. Whether it is light and dainty, or chunky and statement. I found some great pieces I've got that would work really well with one-piece swimsuits in particular. Without all that excess skin showing like with bikinis, you can wear chunky jewelry with a one-piece and not look imbalanced. I don't know about you, but I always find that accessories with bikinis looks disproportionate and too much.
You can also accessorize with scarves. Lightweight silk scarves are perfect with one-piece swimsuits, as they enhance that classic glamorous look. I love how chic scarves, swimsuits, and sunglasses look altogether.
Here are some of my favorite scarves that I've got with great colors and patterns that definitely help in personalizing a look.
With scarves, the colors and patterns can dress up a plain one-piece, or add visual interest in the form of a slight contrast against the patterns existing on the swimsuits already. Whichever colors or patterns you choose definitely will show how bright and bold, or subtle and minimalistic you are.
This isn't exactly accessorizing per se, but it does help nonetheless. A look isn't complete just in the outfit itself. With the right makeup, you can definitely add to a look. Summer is the perfect time to try out new strobing techniques, and to use that highlighter you've got sitting around. I love this highlighter. Benefit makes really great ones, long-lasting and with smooth consistencies that feel like nothing on your face. I've been wearing this highlighter a lot lately. It's seriously so nice. Lightly shimmery, but not overly so that you look like you doused in glitter. Have you tried this highlighter?
You can also personalize with lip colors, or blush. I generally like to play up the skin when at the beach, rather than eyes for makeup. More natural that way, you know? (I mean, as "natural" as makeup can really be) Makeup is definitely another way to style a swimsuit because your face finishes off the look.
Adore Me offers a swimsuit collection that ranges from petite to plus size. I really like how their swimsuits have such gorgeous prints and colors. I love playing with prints, as you probably already know. They also have some swimsuits with edgy cutouts and sheer panels. I definitely recommend checking out their site! We've still got some summer left in the year, so buying a new swimsuit is still justifiable.
