Swimwear blog

As we are all enjoying this glorious weather I thought I would do an extension to my last “Swimwear as Daywear” blog and show you some more of the best swimwear pieces available online at the moment. There are prints, plains, and stripes in a variety of shapes and styles, cover-ups including kaftans, shirts and trousers. Hopefully there will be something that inspires you or reminds you of what you already have in your wardrobe. I have also included a variety of price points and a sustainable option that you may not have heard of.



Ralph Lauren, Cotton Chambray Denim Shirt, £125

Fat Face, Breton Stripe Tankini, £35

Fat Face, Breton Bikini Bottoms, £22.50

Anya Hindmarch, Beach Household Tote, £195

Toast, Navy Sandals, £70 


A tankini is great if you are conscious of your stomach area but don’t want to wear a one piece swimsuit. Wear the denim shirt unbuttoned with the sleeves rolled up for a relaxed look (see photo below for inspiration, this image is from Pinterest). This breton top will also work really well with a pair of shorts, either denim or linen.


Triangle Bikini

JL Anyday Frutti Triangle Bikini Top, £22 (2 pack)

JL Anyday Frutti Tie Side Bikini Bottoms, £18 (2 pack)

SilkFred, Oversized Mini Tunic, £35

Havaianas Black Flip Flops, £17.50

Cotswold Country Hats, Straw Fedora, £27.95

A triangle bikini is what you need if you are looking for minimal coverage and maximum tanning! It is probably the classic silhouette that you think of when you hear the word bikini and is flattering on almost all body shapes. However, they do lack support, so opt for an underwire if support is what you need. 


Printed High Waisted Bikini

Boden Sienna Ruffle Bardot Top, £48

Boden Sienna High Waisted Bikini Bottoms, £42

Abercrombie & Fitch, Gauzy Beach Pant Coverup, £29.40

Ancient Greek Sandals, £82.50

Toast, Cercle Raffia Bag, £49


This is a really lovely print in a very flattering high waisted style. Worn with the loose fitting trousers and you have the perfect beach to bar outfit.


Simple High Waisted Bikini

Evarae Underwired Bikini Top, £155

Evarae High Waisted Bikini Bottoms, £105

H&M White Linen Shirt, £24.99

Amazon, Basket Tote Bag, £30

Dune (ASOS), Tan Leather Sandal, £32


This is the ultimate classic shape, with a high waisted bottom for a very flattering fit and an underwired top for support. Wear with an open loose fitting linen shirt and a lovely basket bag and tan sandals to finish off your look.

Evarae ensure a fully transparent supply chain of materials and production. They consciously choose materials that are made through more sustainable processes that lower their environmental impact. This bikini is crafted from luxurious regenerated yarns, promoting healthy seas.


Printed Halterneck Bikini

M&S Animal Print Halterneck Bikini Top, £15

M&S Animal Print Halterneck Bikini Bottoms, £9.50

New Look, Crochet Trim Beach Kaftan, £23.99

Oliver Bonas, Tie Dye Bag, £10

Bikenstock Arizona Eva, £40


This is a fun colourful printed bikini with additional colour added in with the accessories.


Underwired Bikini

Next, Tropical print bikini top, £15

Next, Tropical print tie side bottoms, £16

H&M, Espadrilles, £17.99 

Very, Chiffon Tie Side Maxi Beach Skirt, £15

JD Williams, Rope Shopper Bag, £26

Phase Eight, Straw Boater, £35


This bikini top is underwired to give you support and can be worn with or without the straps. I've chosen the tie side bikini bottoms, but there are other shapes available in this print, so you can mix and match. The sheer chiffon skirt is a great coverup option to take you from the beach to the bar.


Printed Swimsuit

Mango, Floral Print Swimsuit, £39.99

Mango, Denim Short, £25.99

Mango, Rhinestone Sandal, £35.99

Zara, Mini Jute Bag, £22.99


This fun printed swimsuit can be worn with the straps crossed at the front for an extra detail. I have paired it with a classic denim short, but this swimsuit would also work with the white gauzy trousers from Abercrombie & Fitch.


Black Swimsuit

M&S, Plunge Swimsuit, £29.50

SilkFred, Green Botanical Print Kaftan, £45

H&M, Black Mules, £24.99

Mango, Leather Tote Bag, £29.99


This is the perfect, classic black swimsuit with a plunge neckline for a sophisticated feel. The beautiful kaftan would then work during the day with a pair of denim shorts and a simple vest top.


Let me know what you think of these looks and if you can pull anything similar to these from your current wardrobes.

Thanks for reading.
