Summer is right around the corner and we’re sure you’re already scouring the market for the perfect swimwear to wear to the beach. And while you probably already have a few tucked away in your closet, we suggest you add a classic one-piece swimsuit to your collection.

The great thing about the one-piece swimsuit is its versatility. From sleek monokinis to structured maillots that could easily double as body suits, it's definitely a must-have for any and every season. More and more, we’re seeing these swimsuit styles worn as everyday wear, easily transitioning this summer staple into a stylish OOTD. Wear it as a bodysuit and dress it up with a blazer, a skirt, and a pair of heels, or dress it down with a sarong and your favorite sneakers. You’ll definitely get more bang for your buck with this beach must-have.

Ahead, we’ve rounded up a slew of celebrity-approved fashion formulas featuring a one-piece swimsuit that you can definitely still wear on a casual day or for a night out in town.
