Seeing Spots? That’s Because Everyone’s Wearing Leopard Print Swimwear

The leopard wins summer 2020.

Is it just me or is everyone on holiday at the moment? Whether they’re sipping beers on a white sandY beach, or dipping their toes in azure-coloured seas, the world at large, or at least on Instagram, is very much set to out-of-office. This means #holidaywardrobegoals are registering off the charts, with enough itsy-bitsy bikinis, ankle-tie sandals, straw basket bags and wafty kaftans flying around to make you seriously question whether your own summer wardrobe measures up. Firstly, don’t panic. Secondly, there’s a shortcut to acing summer 2020. The only thing you need? A leopard print swimsuit.

Unapologetically bold and universally flattering on all skintones, a leopard-spotted one-piece or two-piece translates to confidence and never trying too hard.

The celebs, of course, are fully on board. Chrissy Teigen chose a leopard-print bikini to pose on a yacht, Lily Allen packed one to Capri and Kaia Gerber sported hers to catch rays while reading.

The Insta-set is also sold. Aemilia Madden, fashion editor at_The Zoe Report_, paired her Solid & Striped two-piece with a sporty bucket hat for sunbathing in Oakland, California, while make-up artist Sofia Trotta twinned her string bikini, from Insta-favourite Tropic Of C string bikini, to her sister’s for a #backyardbikini shot.

Ganni has the coolest selection of spots - and its sporty one-shouldered swimsuit will set you apart from other leopard-wearers at the lido. For something slightly more girlish, try Love Stories’s ruffle-necked swimsuit. I’m a firm believer in high-waisted bikini bottoms - Arket’s are a winner in my book - but Prism’s black-and-white bandeau and briefs are also tempting.

All you need now is a holiday on the horizon - or a paddling pool and a pump.
