How to Accessorize Women's Swimwear - A guide to 2024 Swimsuit Accessories

Posted by Cami Bradshaw on

Swimsuit season is coming in hot (literally) and it's a time to soak up the sun and cool off with refreshing dips in the pool with your favorite swimsuit. But let's face it, wearing the same swimsuit can get old unless you switch it up with some accessories from time to time. It's the accessories that transform you from bathing in the backyard to beachside bombshell.

So, grab your favorite swimsuit (or, you know, all of them), dust off your pool floats, and get ready to take notes on how to style your modest swimwear with some cute yet classic swimsuit accessories.

Sun's Out, Hats Out

First things first: protection. The sun is a glorious orb, vital for life and all that jazz, but it can also be a bit of a beach bum's nemesis. Enter the world of sun hats. Straw fedoras are a classic choice, channeling that effortlessly chic Riviera vibe. But why stop there? This summer, explore wide-brimmed sun hats that double as a statement piece. Think bold colors, funky patterns, or even hats with playful pieces like beads or tassels. Adding these fun pieces to a day on the beach with our Agave One Piece = A DREAM.


Shades Up, Style Up

No poolside look is complete without a killer pair of sunglasses. This season, get rid of those boring aviators and rock those statement shades. Think oversized frames, mirrored lenses, or even those cute grandma beaded glasses. Paired with the full coverage and cute Magnolia One Piece? Say no more.

Jewelry: Because Beaches Deserve Bling Too

Just because you're by the water doesn't mean you have to ditch the sparkle. Layer on delicate anklets and bracelets, chunky bold earrings, and don't forget a statement necklace to elevate your look. Seashells and pearls are a great way to add a beachy touch while keeping it sustainable too. Pairing some gold with our modest bikini Willow Top is something you won't regret.

Towel Me About It: The Art of the Beach Towel

Unless you like having sand stuck to you all the way home from the beach or being cold and wet on a windier day on the lake, a beach towel is a necessity while swimming. A good neutral pattern with cute tassels on the end would be our choice so it can match with any swimsuit- just like the gorgeous and full coverage Neptune Two-Piece.

The Beach Bag: Everyone Wants Sand-Free Snacks, Right?

Now, let's talk about the often-overlooked gem of the swimsuit accessory world: the beach bag. Your average tote is most likely overflowing with sunscreen, soggy towels, and some squished granola bars. Change out the bag that's breaking at the seams, you have to support at the bottom and is a nuisance to carry anymore with the Geode Beach Bag. This stylish statement piece is crafted from durable canvas, a full platform bottom (which means more room for all of your goodies), and complete with a zipper closure to keep your things in and seagulls, out.

Head Scarves: The New Poolside Power Play

Channel your inner poolside diva with the head scarf. Think of it as the sassy beret of the beach – it tames windblown sea salted hair, protects your scalp from scorching rays, and adds a pop of personality to your swimsuit. From girly turbans to playful pirate knots, there's a head scarf style to match your mood. So, tie one on and let your inner mermaid loose while wearing the Rio Two-Piece

Layer Up- Never Thought We'd Say That For Summer Huh?

Don't underestimate the power of the button-up cover-up. They're like the chameleons of the beach accessory world. Unbuttoned, they offer a breezy, "just came from a yacht" vibe. Buttoned up, they transform into a stylish crop top, perfect for grabbing lunch at the beachside shack without it being a swimsuit fashion show (unless that's your thing, you do you!). Plus, mixing and matching a coordinating set like this one offers a touch of playful peek-a-boo with your swimsuit underneath. Find more options for cute and luxury beachwear sets here.

The Swim Skirt: Poolside Chic Without the Chill

Not feeling like dealing with a swim cover-up to bring along and want a swimsuit with built-in and versatile coverage? The swim skirt is the ultimate poolside accessory and just the thing for you – offering sun protection and the freedom to jump straight into the action. Think of it as a mermaid's formal wear – perfect for lounging poolside with a cocktail, strolling the boardwalk in style, or even adventuring down that water slide without a wardrobe malfunction. Let your confidence take center stage (without revealing everything else) with the high waisted Bella Swim Skirt.

The Most Important Tip

Here's the real secret weapon in your swimsuit accessory collection: confidence. Rock that head scarf, that quirky hat, that cute beach towel that matches your personality perfectly, with the knowledge that you look amazing and are ready to have a blast. Because at the end of the day, the best accessory you can bring to the beach or pool is your gorgeous smile and a sense of fun.

With these tips and a little creativity, you'll have a beach day to remember full of good friends, yummy good, accessories that make you feel confident, and fun memories. Remember, accessorizing is all about expressing yourself and having fun. So, grab that swimsuit and pair it with the accessories that emulate your beauty and personality.
