Three Ways to Wear Your Bikini—Even If You're Stuck Inside

Clearly coronavirus has put a damper on our traditional summer plans.

Unless we're #blessed to have our own pool or live near a beach that isn't overcrowded, it's safe to say our swimwear won't see much water in 2020. With vacations on hold and social distancing firmly in place, you're probably setting your favorite seasonal accessories to the side.

But such doesn't have to be the case! We chatted with Hannah Patten, co-founder of the eco-friendly bikini line, Hülya Swim. As someone who basically lives in her two-pieces year round, Hannah breaks down the different uses for her suits that don't involve water. And after the designer was kind enough to send us a suit of our own (complete with a matching scrunchie!), we can honestly attest to the versatility of these pieces.

1. Meraki Top as a Sports Bra

I love pairing my favorite Meraki Top with any yoga leggings or spandex shorts. I add a cute crop top for an on-the-go athletic look. The Meraki Top is a classic scoop neck-style bikini top, perfect for all occasions. I wanted it to offer support and sophistication. I was inspired to make this top because [my business partner] Christina [Firestone] and I wanted something we could go from practicing yoga in, to jumping in the ocean for a dive—I believe we nailed it.

2. Agape Top as a Cute Layering Piece

My favorite essential bandeau top provides comfort and flexibility for everyone who wears it. Its simple lines make it a staple for any occasion and will leave you radiating good vibes all season long! I love that I can layer it under clothing like a strappy dress or button-up top.

3. Serendipity Top as a Style Statement for TikTok

When I want to feel bold, I reach for our Serendipity Top—a triangle bikini with a strappy back, providing both a functional fit and a sleek look. This bikini (along with all of the others) is the perfect addition to any TikTok video. This top makes me feel confident!
