Discover the pieces vying for a place in your beach bag this holiday season, from striking citrus shades to feelgood floral prints
Hit the beach in style
Gone are the days when one-piece swimsuits were viewed as frumpy. Nothing makes a statement more than this summer’s asymmetric swimwear trend. Ideal for those who fancy going strapless, but still need a bit of support, it’s one of the chicest ways to stand out on the beach this summer. Prefer a bikini? Not a problem: our one-shoulder bikini top and flattering high-waisted briefs have you covered.
Not for shrinking violets, our vibrant floral-print swimwear stands out for all the right reasons. Available in a versatile style with ruching at the sides, this patterned swimsuit by Fatface has been designed with a classic cut to suit pretty much every body shape. And, as another bonus, it’s made with quick-drying recycled polyester, perfect for keeping that little bit warmer if you’re holidaying in Cornwall rather than the Cote d’Azur.
Zest is best
Take a break from neutrals and go citrus-bright in this gorgeously zingy tangerine dream of a bikini. Also available in green, it’s made from chlorine-resistant material so the colour will stay brighter for longer. Eye-catching yet chic, this bikini ticks all our swimwear boxes and you can mix and match different sizes on top and bottom to create a personalised fit. An airy pure cotton cover-up and chunky slider sandals are the only accessories you’ll need.
