Swimwear Essentials

Thu 16 Jun 2016 - posted by Georgia Hathaway

Whether you’re jetting off abroad or having a ‘staycation’, you’ll find a great range of swimwear pieces and cover-ups this summer at St David’s! 

Who says you need a bikini to make an impact? This on-trend black swimsuit from Warehouse (£35) is classic, chic and eye-catching. It’s also practical with one fabric shoulder strap and an invisible strap for extra security. A perfect piece if you prefer not to expose your tum but still look fabulous!

Crochet is a huge trend for SS16 and the H&M stunning crocheted triangle bikini top (£19.99) will look amazing on the beach! And it’s lined so you don’t have to worry about it being too revealing. Pair with co-ordinating white bikini bottoms (£12.99) and tousled hair for a fresh and pretty feel.   

This modern wave print swimsuit with contrast binding from Seafolly at John Lewis (£70) keeps your swimwear feminine and fun this season. Cut with a high neckline, the swimsuit also features side boning for support and fixed shoulder straps with a low back. If it’s good enough for Gigi Hadid, then it’s good enough for us!

This River Island red frilly bustier bikini top (£16) will have you looking holiday ready in no time with its striking bold hue. The bustier cut and flattering frilly detail are ideal for making the most of smaller busts. Complete the look with the matching colour bikini bottoms (£12), which have strappy sides for extra detail.

Show off those sexy pins with these delicate lace high waist shorts from Hollister (£29). Team with flat metallic sandals or chunky wedges and a camisole for a simple yet effortless look. What’s more, they’re ideal for day or night – just jazz up with accessories!

Pack a cute cover-up such as this black kimono from New Look (£19.99) in your luggage and you won’t regret it. It’s so versatile! Soft, sheer and lightweight, it boasts a lovely crochet trim and three-quarter length sleeves. Slip on over your beachwear to take you from the beach to the bar in style.
