It’s a little known fact that you basically don’t need to pack underwear when you go on tropical vacations. Of course, that’s because you’re too busy rockin’ your bathing suit 24/7. (Did you really think I was suggesting going commando in Cancun? Hell no.)
If you’re summering in the city, maybe it’s not always appropriate to wear your itty-bitty bikini to dinner—but, it’s totally appropriate to pull a double-duty with your one-piece and wear it as a sleek tank. These new prints from Madewell have me thinking just that. Sure, they’d look great in surf and sand, but they’d turn heads paired with jeans and skirts as well.
The key thing about wearing a one-piece bathing suit as a legitimate garment (because you’re not a toddler after all) is to a) wear a bra, and b) pair the piece with something non-beachy at all. That way, it’ll look intentional and on-trend, and not like it’s laundry day.
Which one of these Madewell tanksuits would you rock?
