Whether you plan on spending your next vacay sunning yourself on a beach or lounging around the hotel pool, you need to bring your A game when it comes to swimwear. The likes of Kendall and Kylie Jenner, Joan Smalls and Emily Ratajkowski have all ventured into designing bikini’s and one-pieces, with the high-street following their lead by creating more fashion-forward pieces. It’s now easier than ever to go from beach-to-bar in style!
One-piece swimsuits are more popular than ever! Rather than just selling an obligatory poorly-fitted black swimming costume, retailers now offer one-pieces in a range of colours, cuts and prints to suit all tastes and body types. Do like Katie and opt for a polka dot number paired with canvas slides and a straw hat to keep it classic.
We love a good monochrome bikini, but if you’re in a tropical destination; sometimes you can’t beat going all out in statement brights! Nail three trends in one like Dennetta by combining a colour pop bikini with matching sunnies and subtle cut-out detailing.
We don’t care how predictable florals are for spring/summer, we love wearing the dainty print during warmer months! Follow Taislany’s lead and ramp up the girlie feel by pairing florals with ruffle detailing, OTT hoops and a slick top knot.
A black swimsuit is probably the most timeless holiday piece you’ll ever purchase but if you fancy giving it a modern revamp, invest in one with a deep plunge neckline á la Lina. Going straight from beach to bar? Not a problem, a black one-piece will also serve as the perfect body when tucked into a pair of shorts, a skirt or billowing palazzo pants.
Steal Sarah’s style and look to Old Hollywood for inspiration on swimwear. The iconic Marilyn Monroe favoured bikini’s with a high-waisted cut so take the retro style into the new season by styling with a sheer kimono, ruffles and Kurt Cobain-esque sunnies.
Add a playful touch to your one-piece via candy cane stripes like Looker Lucy! Stripes are a wardrobe staple for us but we usually opt for monochrome (or navy and white if we’re feeling adventurous…) so red and white adds a fresh spin to a classic. You can also pretend you’re being patriotic if England win a World Cup game while on your hols!
