Swimwear to hit the beach in this summer

Long are the days gone where scarfs and hats where are daily accessory and incoming are the days where sunglasses adorn every passing face and beachwear becomes the new daily essential. I cannot explain to you all how excited I am for those long summer days lounging around enjoying the sun which slowly transforms into blissful summer nights of laughter as the sun sets. Summer is without a doubt my favourite season and my excitement is almost uncontainable when I think about how many memories are made during summer whether you are going abroad, going to a festival or are just enjoying a BBQ with all your friends. Of course, the dress code for these events always involves some sort of swimwear so I thought why don’t I compile a list of the most stunning pieces that will accompany you on all your memory making events.


Of course, number 1 on the list is going to be a bikini. My favourite thing about bikinis is that they can so easily be mixed and matched with other bikini sets creating endless options to be worn day in and day out. Also, I must mention how there is so many stunning options to choose from that when I am buying a set it takes forever for me to make my mind up on which one I want. Bikinis are the embodiment of summer and I cannot express the feeling of joy that I get when its finally warm outside and they can make their home at the front and centre of my wardrobe so I can easily grab it and throw it on at a moment’s notice. Pictured below are my favourite bikinis to recommend for the summer and are in my books bikinis that will last you a lifetime of beach days!

I cannot think of a more classic item of swimwear than a one-piece. There is something in the way that a one-piece fits the curve of your body so gracefully, it looks absolutely stunning on anyone that chooses to adorn one. These past two years one-pieces have made a comeback and it seems that this year is no different with designers such as Mara Hoffman, La Perla and Dolce & Gabbana creating gorgeous pieces that describing as beautiful is an understatement. Throwing a pair of denim shorts and a pair of gladiator sandals easily transforms a one-piece bathing suit from a strictly beach look to a summer BBQ or even festival look. The versatility that this stunning garment gives your wardrobe will no doubt carry you throughout the summer.

I know that this is technically not swimwear but I would argue that there is no better feeling in the world than covering up in a cosy garment to keep you all snuggly warm after taking a dip in the shimmering blue water. They are so many options when it comes to choosing the item that will keep you warm but I of course must include a beach dress. There is not a garment that is easier to throw on than a beach dress and it really is such a weightless item to throw into your beach bag as your running out the door. A beach dress will not only keep you snug but you will also appear uber-stylish.  The best brand that I can recommend when it comes to beach dresses is Athena Procopiou.  These dresses are the most stunningly ethereal dresses that I have ever clasped eyes on and are the embodiment of the free and beautiful spirit that is within us all!




Even just writing this post has got me excited for my trip to Greece which is not for another 4 months! Although it is a perfect excuse to indulge in purchasing all these gorgeous pieces. I’d love to know what your favourite brand is to shop for your vacation wardrobe so let me know in the comments down below who you would recommend. I’m always look for a new designer to add to my favourites list!
