It’s heating up
Time to crack out a new bikini!
Find the one for you: style, colour, fit...
The sun is shining and the days are getting longer which means summer is just around the corner. Time for beach days, BBQs and bikinis. If you’re a surf kinda girl then you pretty much live in a bikini in summer, so finding one that you love and that makes you feel great is a very important task! Check out some of our fave bikinis of the season (and look to our tips on how to rock them).
Halterneck bikinis are great because... adjustable. Whether you’re flat chested or flaunting DDs, you can get the coverage and support you need. Look for options with underwires or padding if you’re of the bigger busted variety. They give you more support for splashing amongst the waves and a bit of a push up so you can shake what your mumma gave ya. Add a headband with a pop of colour to complete your look.
The off-the-shoulder look has been going strong for a while and now it’s reached the bikini set. Part crop, part bikini it’s great to pair with a skirt and big sunnies for a day out in the sun or even a cute festival get-up. If you’re not a big fan of having too much on show, this bikini gives your chest more coverage without making you feel completely unsexy.
This retro trend is back for good reason. Not only is it very cute, it’s possibly one of the most flattering ways to wear a two-piece. The high-waistedness means it's comfortable and gives you that bit more coverage from those UV rays. Pair with some cat-eye sunnies for extra 50’s vibes.
THE STRING BIKINI (WITH A TWIST)
The string bikini trend is one of the most iconic styles of all. These itsy-bitsy bikinis give you a chance to show off your butt and flaunt those curves. The beauty of the string bikini is that you can adjust it to sit anywhere on your hips so wherever looks most flattering for you. Spice up your beach look by choosing a crochet one - the knit bikini is straight out of the 70s (in a good way!). Pull on your fave pair of denim cut-offs and a linen shirt around your waist and you’ll be Woodstock-ready.
The bandeau bikini in block colours gives you the sleekest poolside look. It’s chic and you don’t have to worry about any ties or knots coming undone. Materials like neoprene add a sporty luxe look too. #winning
