Anyone can splash around the ocean wearing an itty-bitty bikini. But what separates the plebes from the pros is how you style your suit once you hit dry land. For instance, if you like to hit up the snack shack wrapped in your terry towel, switch it out for an elegant caftan or a quick-change sarong. Likewise, if you prefer gym shorts for shopping beachside, run with the athleisure look by adding a button-down shirt and some sporty sandals. It’s that simple.
