Swimwear has become an essential wardrobe item along with the basic white t-shirt, flip-flops and sun dresses.

From patterned one-piece swimming costumes to barely-there string bikinis, one can easily have a swimsuit for every mood or day of the week.

One of the best things about summer is the long days and the warm nights.

Which explains why so often we go from the beach or pool to lunch with friends or a night out.

Whether it be daytime casual or evening glam, here’s how to change up your swimwear.

Padded underwire bikini tops are perfect for this look. All you need to do is slip on high-waist shorts and a pair of sandals, and you’re ready to go for lunch with the kids.
