How to style up your swimwear

With hues this vibrant and cuts this cute, it would be a crime not to dress these cossies up and take them out on the town. Here’s three looks to try…

The bold and the beautiful

Bright sunshine (fingers crossed) calls for rich jewel tones. Think juicy citrine yellow accents in your print and deep cerulean blue on your feet. Finish off the look with the addition of cool, crisp linen and a (generous) sip of summer wine.

The pastel print

When a bikini works as hard as this one, you’ll want to maximise the wearing potential – and the flattering longer line top is the perfect pal for fresh linen trousers. Add a little more coverage via a coordinating linen shirt, with no compromise on style.

The clever clash

Stripes and a busy print? It shouldn’t work, but it does. Why? The cornflower blue buds on the swimsuit jump out against the tie-waist trousers, without fighting for attention. Use this method for accessorising (in this case red), to look hotter than the sun.
