Try a Swimsuit

Swimwear trends come and go, but everytime we always end up going back to the traditional swimsuit. Whether you opt for a fierce animal print à la Doutzen Kroes or a feminine floral design, full coverage or creative cut-outs, show off your curves and emulate the glamorous pin-up girls of the fifties in an elegant and ultra-flattering one-piece.

Mix and Match

Make like Beyonce and create your dream poolside pairing this holiday season with a mix and match bikini. Especially perfect if you require a different sized top and bottom, play with different colours, textures and patterns to reflect your individual style and personality.

All White

Nothing says summer quite like a crisp and refreshing shade of white. Take a leaf out of Rihanna or Kelly Brook’s book and show off your sun-kissed glow in a bright white bikini or swimsuit.

Sixties throwback

Release your inner sixties siren in a high waisted bikini like Beyonce and ‘it’ girl of the moment, Gigi Hadid. A must-have shape for a few seasons now, this summer’s retro styles are given a modern spin with fresh prints and sheer inserts for added sex appeal. A chic alternative for those looking for a bit more coverage without compromising on style.
