30 Swimsuits That Weirdly Look Even Better as Summer Tops

30 Swimsuits That Weirdly Look Even Better as Summer Tops

Have you ever secretly wanted to wear your swimsuit as a top IRL, not just to the beach or pool? Same, which is why I'm writing this story. It wasn't too long ago now that our editor in chief, Kat Collings, flaunted a swim top as a "real" top underneath a blazer during fashion week, and to be honest, I never fully recovered. The styling was spot-on, it looked cool and fresh, and it was an easy way to give something that once had only one function, multiple.

Now, not every swimsuit or bikini top will transition as easily into your ready-to-wear wardrobe as others, so today, I'm here to break down the best swim top styles to wear as summer tops. Triangle bikinis and anything with a prominent barely-there effect might feel a bit off among your regular clothes, but the six swim top styles ahead will look right at home with your jeans, blazers, and skirts—we promise.

The structure of a bustier-style swimsuit gives it a more ready-to-wear feel versus, let's say, a triangle bikini. Layer this underneath a blazer if your bra feels a bit too skimpy or with super-high-rise trousers for a fresh summer outfit. 

Thanks to the sleeves, people really will think these are tops until you tell them otherwise, which in turn will give you fashion street cred for being more innovative than most.

Simple, bandeau-style swim tops remind us of a sleek sports bra moment. Wear them with jean shorts, high-rise slip skirts, and even with loose-fitting jeans for a fun '90s vibe. 

Wearing your cooler, more statement-making one-pieces as bodysuits is something you might have thought about doing but haven't had the courage to try yet. Well, try it. You'll be glad you did. 

Tankinis are finally back as a fun new swim trend this year, and they are the best style to test out as a top double. I mean, they basically look like a crop top, after all. 

One-shoulder tops are currently trending in the ready-to-wear world, so we don't see why you can't wear one-shoulder swim tops as a going-out top 2.0… or something like that.

If you're reading this, you already know that Who What Wear's fashion editors love to shop. And they're really, really good at it. From trend forecasting to street style and celeb outfit IDs, if it's worth adding to your wardrobe, we've probably written about it and included a handy hyperlink (or as we like to say, "shopped it out"). Whether you're interested in upgrading your work from home outfits, replacing worn-out bras, or simply finding the best jeans for your figure, Who What Wear has you covered.

Now, a new month means it's time to turn the spotlight back on our favorite shoppers—you!

Below, you will find the most popular fashion pieces under $100 actually purchased by Who What Wear readers (and, let's be honest, staffers too) over the past month, along with a few notes about why we also love each item. Think of it as a Who What Wear nomination seconded by hundreds—sometimes even thousands—of our readers, updated monthly to reflect not only what's making a dent in our wallets but also what is still available and genuinely worth adding to your shopping cart.

Intrigued? We hope so. Keep scrolling to see the 20 most popular fashion items our readers purchased in April, and be sure to let us know if your must-haves made the list. We may shop till we drop, but our DMs are always open.

First and foremost, let's talk about Megababe's Squeaky Clean hand sanitizer. With over 1100 units sold in April, it's clear this is the must-have accessory of the season. Additionally, we're so happy to support this indie brand's founder, Katie Sturino. (If you haven't already listened to her episode of Second Life, now's the perfect opportunity.)
