Swimsuits have long stopped being about covering up and judging by the Resort ’14 catwalk shows, it’s a trend that is here to stay. Directional and daring, the one-piece is taking risks and so should you. Fashion houses and high street stores alike are offering a myriad of options in design and budget to make sure that you’ll be holidaying in style.
Not for the tan-line wary this ultra-flattering, ultra-sexy style highlights all the right places and creates a bit of mystery while it’s at it. L-R: Asos.com £30, Topshop £36, Agent Provocateur £225, River Island £25.
Faint-hearted shoppers look away now. Giving a firm nod to Baywatch, this style is all about the deep neckline. Save this one for lounging rather than high speed water slides and you’ll be the envy of the poolside. L-r: Mara Hoffman £135, American Apparel £31, Asos.com £35, We Are Handsome £190.
No longer confined to nautical themes, this style embraces 50’s femininity with underwired cups and high waists. L-r: Next £26, Topshop £36, Zimmerman £265, Ted Baker £48.
THE SPORTS LUXE
Okay, so maybe you won’t be doing 50 lengths but why not look like you’re about to? This style is sartorial athleticism all over and streamlines the body. Mesh, zips and panelling are key features. L-r: Motel £35, Lisa Marie Fernandez £352, Beth Richards £235, American Apparel £31.
