For the love of lilac

Lilac, wisteria, lavender, periwinkle… whatever soft shade you favour, pastel purple swimwear is an on trend addition to any suitcase. This delicate colour is surprisingly versatile and looks as good paired with a white beach shirt as it does with cotton-rich chinos shorts. Choose from three bikini styles, including this floral-print high-waisted set, and a textured V-neck swimsuit.

Punchy prints

Bring a hint of Seventies chic into your swimwear with this chevron striped swimsuit. Bright and bold, this flattering high-leg one-piece comes in a retro wrap-shape with an adjustable halter neck. The best bit is the clever chlorine-resist finish that will keep colours vibrant for longer so you can dive into the pool day after day without worrying about fading.

Belt it

Sometimes it’s the small details that make an outfit: this season it’s all about the belt. Whether you try a graphic floral print swimsuit or a classic striped bikini, a coordinating belt helps create shape through the midline and adds a focal point to an otherwise simple piece. Take this monochrome printed design: the plunge neckline works with the matching belt to further accentuate your waist. Just add cotton-rich shorts and flat sandals and you’ll be ready for a relaxed poolside lunch.
