How you style a swim skirt also depends on what type of swimwear look you hope to achieve. Some women like swim skirts because of their high-waisted fit that offers smoothing coverage for your lower midsection, backside, and upper thighs and want to keep the rest of their swimwear look fairly modest as well. In this case, try pairing a swim skirt with a tankini top that features a deep V neckline to create a streamlined swimwear look that is modest without covering upsomuch that it becomes unflattering.

If this applies to you, pair your swim skirt with a more revealing bikini top. Just make sure that whichever bikini top style you choose has its own distinctive features and textures in order to balance out your swim skirt and prevent it from looking too bulky. A halter-neck bikini top is a great choice—plus, they’re retro-inspired, too.
