The Perfect Accessories For Your Swimsuit, Depending On Your Personal Style
Ah, accessories! They're most definitely not limited to outfits outside the beach, although they're often thought of as reserved for fancier occasions. Think parties or date night, accessories like jewelry, clutch bags, and ornate shoes often come to mind.
But right now, we're right smack in the middle of summer in Manila, and boy do we feel the heat! Sizzling in the city is no fun, but beach getaways? We're all for that. If you haven't decided on the perfect swimsuit yet, then you're in for a treat, because we put together the ultimate swimsuit guide for every body type—The Metro.Style Swimsuit Project! After you're done picking out your swim gear for the summer, we urge you to look further, and indulge in a bit more retail therapy with accessories to go with your swimsuit!
Scroll further to see our picks for accessories that may go well with your swimsuit, depending on four personal styles: the girly girl, the classy chick, the trendy fashionista, and the free-spirited bohemian! With this, we hope you find something you like! Happy shopping!
The Girly Girl
You're a self-confessed feminine spirit at heart—you love all things saccharine, pink, and cute, and adore absolutely anything with a touch of glitter and shine! While most swimsuit trends these days point to minimalist, neutral-color territory, you often find yourself going against the norm and going for what you truly feel your prettiest in! Indulge in these finds, girly girl!

The Classy, Classic Chick
You're that lady who often gravitates towards classic styles—you love anything black, white, nude, and just a touch of color once in a while. You're not afraid of subdued hues, and are mostly attracted to pieces that stand the test of time. At the beach, where color and print are often seen, you're not afraid to stand out in a basic black suit, and classy accessories you can re-use for seasons to come.

The Trendy Fashionista
You love a daring new trend when you see one, and you're often the gal who loves to experiment with new things every season. Even on the beach where traditional shapes and styles are common, you like to switch things up by opting for a suit that's unexpected, but still chic. Take things further by pairing your suit with a bold bag or a straw hat that can't be found at the local market.
