30 Swimsuits That Weirdly Look Even Better as Summer Tops

Have you always wanted to secretly wear your swimsuit as a top IRL, not just on the beach or by the pool? The same reason I write this story. It wasn't that long ago that our editor-in-chief Kat Collings put on a swim top as a "real" top under a blazer during fashion week, and to be honest I never fully recovered. The styling was just right, it looked cool and fresh, and it was an easy way to give something that once had only one function, several.
Now not every swimsuit or every bikini top can be transformed into your ready-to-wear wardrobe as easily as others. That's why I'm here today to break down the best swim tops for summer tops. Triangle bikinis and anything that has a striking, barely visible effect may feel a little uncomfortable in your normal clothes, but the six swim top models in front of you will look like home with your jeans, blazers, and skirts - we promise it.
Bustier
The structure of a bustier style swimsuit gives it a better feel than a triangle bikini, for example. Wear this under a blazer if your bra feels a little too tight, or with super high-rise pants for a fresh summer outfit.
Buy the style:
Weworewhat Claudia Bikini Top ($ 67)
H&M bikini top ($ 30)
Veronica Bart Dyer Plaid Bikini Top ($ 112.8)
Charlie Vacation Lula Bra ($ 49)
Juillet Izzy bikini top ($ 65)
Short sleeves
Thanks to the sleeves, people will really think these are tops until you tell them otherwise, which in turn gives you the reputation of fashion street for being more innovative than most others.
Buy the style:
Jonathan Simkhai Chloe Floral Bikini Top (USD 175)
Capittana Martina reversible bikini set ($ 132)
Capittana Almudena bikini set ($ 125)
Leslie Amon Maryline Bikini Set ($ 170)
Robin Piccone Ava Knot Front Tea Bikini Top ($ 74)
Bandeau-like
Simple bandeau-style bathing tops are reminiscent of an elegant sports bra moment. Wear them with denim shorts, high slip skirts and even loose fitting jeans for a fun 90s vibe.
Buy the style:
Camila Coelho Camila Coelho Catarina Top in Black ($ 75)
H&M padded bandeau bikini top ($ 13)
Hunza G Tracey Ruffled Bikini Set ($ 108)
ASOS bandeau bikini top ($ 16)
Suboo Kaia Ruffles Bandeau Top ($ 110)
Statement one piece
If you're wearing your cooler, more meaningful onesies than bodysuits, you may have thought about it, but haven't had the courage to try yet. Try it. You will not regret it.
Buy the style:
H & M High Leg Swimsuit ($ 29.99)
Leslie Amon Rita one-piece swimsuit ($ 177)
Leslie Amon Asos Design Curve Broderie Off Shoulder Swimsuit in White ($ 0)
Norma Kamali Slinky Marissa swimsuit ($ 99)
Oseree Lumiere One Piece ($ 156)
Tankinis
Tankinis are finally back this year as a fun new swimming trend and they are the best style to test as a top double. I mean, they basically look like a crop top.
Buy the style:
Beth Richards Kim Top ($ 110)
Seea Georgia Bikini Top ($ 80)
H&M bikini top ($ 25)
L * Space Rebel bikini top ($ 52.8)
Agua Bendita Susan bikini top ($ 80)
One shoulder tops
One-shoulder tops are currently trending in the ready-to-wear world, so we don't see why you can't wear one-shoulder tops as a go-out top 2.0 ... or something like that.
