Watermelon swimsuit, £4; Sunglasses, £3

While a traditional swimsuit is flattering on most body shapes, this style is often viewed as boring. But this doesn’t mean that one-pieces should be written off: you can always up the ante and fun factor by opting for one that comes complete with a bold print, like this trendy watermelon swimsuit!

Cut-Out Details

Bikini top, £6; Bikini bottoms, £4; Cap, £3; Earrings, £1; Arm bangle, £2

While ultra-provocative, strappy swimsuits reigned supreme in 2016, this year is all about a more parred back version of the style. For example, a bikini with simple cut-out details on the sides makes for an understated, sexy look. Plus, this style is ideal for those of you wanting to create the impression of an hourglass figure, as the straps will draw attention to your hips.

The Halterneck
