Got the post bank holiday blues? We’re over it already, and planning our next holiday which will involve a different kind of blues – those of a luscious swimming pool.
Ah yes, the summer of love is upon us and whether you’re diving into the cool crystal waters of an infinity pool on the Adriatic coast or lurking around a paddling pool in Brighton, you may as well look fine while you’re at it. We’ve combed through the bountiful swimwear offerings and come up with what we deem to be the key themes for 2012’s poolside poser.
If you really want to make a splash, go for bold and wear a picture print swimming costume – from sunsets to elephant heads, we’ve picked the top 6. More of a slinky poolside operator? Be brave and opt for daring cut-outs and super sexy cuts.
A black swimsuit it a perennial favourite so we’ve picked out our favourites here, and for those of us who’d rather get a tan on our tummies than be achingly on-trend in a one-piece, we’ve picked our top bikinis for your frolicking pleasure.
Add in a hat, a silky cover-up, and some sandals to take you from sun-lounger to bar - and you’re ready to rivet. Eat your heart out, Ludovine Sagnier.
