It's the season of change and SS17 is looking to prove that the one-piece can be just as flattering as the bikini – and so far, it’s winning me over. There’s so much more to a swimsuit than that old Speedo cossie you used to dread peeling on for your weekly childhood lessons. And this summer’s trends are looking to turn you from your bikini mix-and-match set, to the renewed and, that’s right, sexy all-in-one. Not convinced? Take a look at my top picks from these season-starters, and see if you can resist the pull of the pool! High Leg Drop Side Swimsuit, Missguided, £18.00 For a classically simple, yet timeless look, why not go for this stylish one-tone swimsuit. Boasting a highleg cut on the bottom, and low drop side to give a sexy side-split effect, this swimsuit is anything but boring. Sold in two shades: White and Red.
Polynesia Floral Swimsuit, Boux Avenue, £35.00 Breakout that bikini body - this effortless sexy swimsuit contrasts a hibiscuses floral pattern with a deep plunging neckline. The halterneck tie gives a backless effect with high-waisted bikini-style bottoms.
Pink Feather Print Swimsuit, River Island, £38.00 For something a little more structured, without compromising on style, why not take the plunge in this tribal print one-piece from River Island? With flattering cut-out detail, this pretty-in-pink swimsuit is fully supported with padded cups and under-wiring.
Slogan Swimsuits, Missguided, £18.00 Taking the slogan t-shirt trend to the pool-side, these sassy swimsuits would be perfect the choice for summer pool-parties. Wear under jeans or (dare I say it) shorts before making the great reveal! Choose your slogan to match your locks from: Brunettes Do It Better, Blondes Have More Fun (very true…!) and Red Hair Don’t Care.
