I am so pleased that my first (proper) fashion post seems to have gone down very well – You can check it out here if you haven’t already.

As we all know the weather has been getting slightly warmer lately – hooray!  I always prefer to get my swimwear sorted as early as possible as leaving it too late means you’re left with the leftovers in the shops.

So, in today’s post I’ll be sharing my top picks for swimwear – enjoy!

1. Topshop Black & Cream Scallop Swimsuit, £36

I have been absolutely loving the scallop trend lately and I think this swimsuit looks absolutely gorgeous and nails the trend.  I love the fact that swimsuits have been making a bit of a comeback lately as they look so flattering on pretty much anyone! 


 2. New Look Black Watermelon Print Underwired Longline Bikini Top, £14.99

New Look Black Watermelon Print High Waisted Bikini Bottoms, £11.99

For those of you who would prefer to wear a bikini, this gorgeous number from New Look is one of my faves!  The bold watermelon print along with the longline bikini top and high waisted bikini bottoms guarentees that you will look bang on trend on the beach!  The bikini’s shape is super flattering and the pattern would complement both a tan as well as more fair skin tones!


3. ASOS Mix and Match Leopard Print Longline Bandeau Bikini Top, £18

ASOS Mix and Match Leopard Print Brazilian Pant, £10

If you’d rather not have to deal with bikini strap tan lines, this bikini with detachable straps from ASOS would be perfect!  Again, this animal print pattern would complement both tanned and fair skin tones. (*Tip: Patterned and jewel-toned bikinis look amazing with fair skin, but avoid pastel colours! For more tips click here*)


4. New Look Purple Cutwork Frill Bandeau Bikini Top, £14.99

New Look Purple Cutwork Frill Bikini Bottoms, £7.99

This bikini from New look offers a cool twist on the classic bandeau bikini.  It’s available in purple, lilac and pink so you’re sure to find a colour which suits you perfectly!


5. Izmir Flamingo Print Twist Front Bandeau Bikini, £18

If you’re looking for something a little bit quirky, check out this cute flamingo print bikini from!  I absolutely love love love the print on this, and the bow detailing at the back of the bikini top as well as at the sides of the bikini bottoms just makes this bikini absolutely perfect!

Which style will you be sporting at the beach this summer?
