Retro Bikini Twist

One thing I absolutely love about the summer season is finding excuses to indulge in buying swimwear. Be it for your casual swims or for a holiday to the beach or if you are like me it will probably be just to hang it in your closet till you find the perfect occasion to wear it. I've been wanting to wear my high waisted bikini set from a long time, before the summers go away and haven't been able to find the time and just like me a lot of people don't get to use their swimwear that often. So I decided on doing a post with mixing and matching a bikini top in an outfit that you can wear on a daily basis. Sounds crazy? Maybe not.

The idea is to wear your bikini top as a crop top or a bralet and team it with other things. Since my bikini top is a halter, there are two ways you can style it. One pairing it with a sheer top or a cape, which is perfect if you're at the beach and the other is wearing it under a shirt or light jacket. I teamed up my striped bikini top with a polka dotted, cotton shirt from Zara. The shirt is a recent buy and should be still available at the store. Print on print gives it a contrast and also a nautical effect. I wore the shirt with a knot to quirk it up and go the retro way.

Since it's a day look, go for bright colours instead of your boring blue jeans or trousers. Remember how the coloured pants trend was a rage two years back? Dig into your closet and find those flashy, flamboyant pants and give them a try. Team it with a neutral coloured belt as the pant itself is really bright. Always remember to wear a belt if your pant has belt loops. You can team this whole look with flats or wedges to keep it comfy.

I love the navy & gold necklace from Péro by Aneeth Arora that goes perfectly with this fun outfit and match it with my navy fringed bag. I think I am quite obsessed with fringes this season and you will be seeing them a lot in my upcoming shoots. So we have definitely gone retro with the knotted shirts and peace jewellery to halter bikini tops, why not wear the very popular retro cat eye sunglasses? Animal printed cat eye gasses have always been a rage. Ladies in the 50's used to rock these glasses with their high wasted bikinis and their super hot curvaceous bodies. Try this look and mix and match all those sexy bikinis lying in your closet!
