There’s no better way to make a bold statement beside the pool than with a striking swimsuit. We’ve spoken about how the graphic stripes look is set to make waves again this season and this halter neck one piece from Soul Cal is the perfect way to buy into the trend without spending a fortune. Pair with your favourite kaftan and a chic pair of sunglasses for a relaxed, nautical vibe.
Perfect for throwing over your favourite bikini top and tucking into a pair of denim shorts, this embroidered top by Firetrap is guaranteed to be one of the most versatile pieces in your holiday wardrobe. Featuring a subtle peplum for an ultra flattering shape, it can easily be dressed up or down depending on the occasion.
Tunics and kaftans are essential to any summer wardrobe. We love this crisp white option from H&M – complete with delicate red embroidery for an extra pop of colour and detail. It’s perfect to be worn over a pair of denim cut-offs for a casual daytime outfit. If relaxing by the pool is more your thing, turn it into the perfect cover-up by teaming it with your favourite bikini.
Wherever you’re headed this summer, a wide-brimmed hat is the perfect accessory to help you keep your cool in the sun. We love the extra ribbon detailing on this one from New Look, which breathes new life into such a classic piece.
Inject some colour into your suitcase with this vibrant one-piece from Peacocks. Featuring frills and ruche detailing, it’s sure to flatter every shape and is the perfect piece to help you make a statement by the pool. We also love the halter neck and feminine sweetheart neckline.
Sunglasses can make a huge difference to any outfit, so it’s important to find the right style for you. These H&M shades feature designer-inspired tortoiseshell frames at a fraction of the price and are sure to be a handbag essential all summer long.
This light-hearted tote bag is perfect for carrying your essential holiday items to and from the beach – from sun cream and shades to your choice of steamy summer read. We love the versatility of these bags, which feature a wide range of summer appropriate designs to suit every style.
You can never go wrong with a classic pair of flip-flops and there are some great budget options on the market this year. This pair from Peacocks feature a snake-skin pattern, ideal for adding some extra detail to an otherwise simple style of sandal. Not a fan of the animal print? They come in black, too!
Statement jewellery never seems to go out of fashion and this brown and gold necklace from New Look is the perfect way to channel the trend on holiday. Teamed with a classic black bikini, it’s sure to add some extra interest to even the most casual of poolside looks. You could try pairing it with a simple white summer dress for a fun play on evening wear, too?
