Labor Day weekend may mark the end of the summer, but it doesn't have to be the end of your summer wardrobe. Over the past few months, especially, we've seen the fashion crowd propose ingenious ways to stretch the lifespan of your swimwear, beyond the old styling-your-one-piece-as-a-bodysuit trick. (Though, that one never fails.)
At Copenhagen Fashion Week, we saw incredibly chic show-goers wear their boxy suiting over string bikinis and pair their long skirts with minimal bandeaus. On Instagram, many have embraced the return of low-rise jeans, pairing theirs with fitted athletic crop tops, which have also been trending in the swim market. All of these styling tricks have us inspired — and itching to get at least a few more weeks out of our summer swimsuits, even if we don't have any beach days on the horizon.
Ahead, we've styled out six of our go-to swim silhouettes — from the high-waisted bikini to the metallic one-piece — into full outfits you'll want to wear well past Labor Day. See and shop them all, below.
