I love swimwear. I think it’s because more than any other piece, it holds the promise of summer. I can trace my obsession back to childhood, when my mum would take us to the same shop each year, to pick out a cossie for the long scorching months of summer in Australia. I still vividly remember each of the swimmers I chose, and the thrill of picking out a new bikini or swimsuit has never faded. While this summer is definitely going to be very different to previous years, it’s no reason not to indulge in new swimwear. I may not be in Italy as planned, but I am still going to make the most of my new Arabella London bikini (a brand I have recently discovered and adore), or my Casa Raki off-the-shoulder one-piece (stylish and sustainable) – I will probably just be in Suffolk instead of Ischia.
So whether you’re travelling abroad, braving the icy local seas, or even just lazing by the padding pool in the garden, here is a round-up of the chicest suits for every shape and style.
