While summer is wrapping up for the 2021 season, it is still possible to get some wear out of your bikini tops by incorporating them into your wardrobe before it starts getting too cold!

In this first look I used a plain black bikini top in place of a crop top underneath a blazer. For this black and white look I added white denim and a black blazer overtop. I also wore a black headband and a simple pair of white heeled sandals to tie it all together. This is a great option if you want to wear a blazer but don't want to be too warm underneath. You could also play around with a pop of colour with your bikini top to add additional colour to your look!

Next, I paired a lemon yellow bikini top with a denim skirt and a white button up shirt. The shirt can be styled so many different ways (ex. tying the front, buttoning halfway, tucking into the skirt, etc.) and will add a pop of colour as I suggested in the last example. I would wear this if I wanted an extra layer near the water because the shirt is easy to remove or tie around your waist.

This monochromatic pink outfit was one of my favourite summer looks, but could easily transition into pre-fall. In this look I styled a pink bikini top with a floral pattern and a ring detail in the middle with a similarly coloured pair of pants. You could mix and match colours and prints, or follow along with a completely monochromatic look. I liked having pants on the bottom so that I was able to easily dress up this style with a pair of heels and a bag in the evening, but could also just keep it casual as is with a pair of sneakers during the daytime.

These tips can be used to style pieces you already own or you can shop similar products to what I've used using the links below.
