With European summer fast approaching we’re busy getting our wardrobe and beauty shelves primed for warm days and balmy nights ahead. Naturally, curating the perfect bikini looks are top priority on our summer to-do list. If you've kept things simple when it comes to swimwear, now may be the time to change up your look by finding new ways to wear your favourite Sommer Swim.
 
Throughout this season we’ve spotted our string bikinis worn various ways on celebs, supermodels, and a bevy of customers posting to Instagram. We love seeing our classic bandeau and halter-neck tops transformed into a multi-functional versatile piece by the wearer. 
 
So, if you’re looking for a simple (and sustainable) alternative to refreshing your bikini wardrobe this summer, follow the lead of these ladies in Sommer as they show us how they're wearing their bikini in more way than one.

 

CRISS-CROSSED

This season's bestselling Xena halter neck bikini top, as previously seen on Kendall Jenner, Kourtney Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian, and Kylie Jenner (just to name a few), has multiple options when it comes to tying and styling. One of the easiest and most popular looks is crossed over the chest. Simply layer one strap over the other in a cross shape, and meet at the back of the neck, tying securely as a halter neck.

BANDEAU

If you're looking for the perfect top for (no tan line) tanning, but love the look of a halter as you move from beach to bar, the Xena Top can be worn effortlessly as a bandeau bikini top. To do so, pull the neck straps forward until the front of the bikini is ruched into a small circle, then simply secure in a bow with the tie strings hanging to the front. Try the bandeau look with our Lucia top, take the halter neck piece and wrap it around the back, rather than tying at the neck.

STRAPPY

The new season Lucia halter neck & Kaia halter neck bikini top are optimal pieces for achieving multiple on-trend looks. Simply style your tie strings around the waist, hips, or underboob. Create the ultimate Sommer Swim duo with a tie side bikini bottom in a matching print or contrasting hue.
