Skate Style: Styling the Swim Dress
When you’re running errands or headed for the beach on those long, hot summer days, the last thing you want to do is carry around multiple different outfits to change into. What if we told you that we created the perfect solution with the Lime Ricki swim dress!? This versatile piece is a great example of skate style – clothing that has multiple functions or can be worn for different purposes. As experienced swim designers, we take pride in knowing that our suits are made to be comfortable and practical, making it easy to transition from one activity to the next.
In this post, we’ll be sharing a few of our recommendations for how to style your favorite Lime Ricki suits to be suitable for everyday wear. We’ll be giving you styling tips for our swim dresses, highlighting one of our most versatile collections, and showing you how to accessorize your swimsuit to go from the beach to the store without stressing about what you’re wearing.
How To Style Your Favorite Swim Dress
Lime Ricki swim dresses are a great option for anyone looking for a multipurpose swimsuit. Featuring a dress on the outside and a one-piece suit underneath, this suit is ideal for a variety of activities. Whether you’re swimming in the ocean, getting a workout in on the tennis court, or grabbing a bite to eat after a day at the beach, you’ll stay supported and comfortable in this swimsuit. Plus, since these dresses already look like “acceptable” everyday attire, you don’t have to worry about modifying them for different activities. You can head from the pool straight to the farmers’ market, just as you are! Of course, if you want to dress up your look, you can always add accessories. We’ll share more of our tips for elevating your swimwear in this post.
Product Spotlight: The Tennis Court Collection
Our Tennis Court Collection is your one-stop shop for all the versatile swimwear you need. For this collection, we were inspired by two themes – the bright, bold colors of 80s preppy style, and the retro vibe of our favorite summertime sport, tennis! We wanted to create stylish pieces that could easily be worn on and off the court (and really, everywhere in between). For example, the cycling-inspired design of our bike shorts pairs perfectly with our bralettes and knotted crop tops, letting you go from your workout to the beach with ease. These suits are perfect for all your favorite activities, but they’re also great for daily wear – especially the Garden Party Bike Short and the Garden Party Swim Dress!
Elevate Your Look With Accessories
One of the easiest ways to make your swimsuit look more presentable is to accessorize. For example, most of our swimsuit tops can double as everyday tank tops when paired with a pair of shorts or a skirt. Throw on a colorful bandana or a sun hat, and you have the perfect beach-to-town outfit with minimal effort. If you’re looking for some accessory inspo, check out our Women’s Accessories page. We have a variety of t-shirts, bandanas, crewnecks, and cushion slides in bold colors for you to choose from, so you can add your own flair to any outfit!
