Bikini Bonanza

It’s holiday season!

Whether you’re after a bikini to cover, to flaunt, to play sports or just relax, here are my picks of the most flattering, useful and cute beach wear around!

***

Pretty In Pink

For the Girly Girl

The ruffles will add texture and detail where you are the most slimline and where you will want to attract the most attention – the shoulders and collarbone, with the extra detail giving weight on the thighs too to boyish shapes. You can remain tan line free with the slip of the shoulder strap in this ASOS bikini and this colour really brings out a tan wonderfully a perfect bikini for an exotic summer vacation.

ASOS Petal Ruffle One Shoulder Bikini Top £16 & ASOS Petal Ruffle Tie Side Bikini Pant £12

For the beach conscious…

But not afraid of colour

This bold blue swimsuit is perfect for those who aren’t ready to get their tummy out but don’t want a boring tummy hugger in subdued colours! The smooth layered front detail will hide a multitude of sins and give your tummy a toned appearance without ever having to hit the gym.

Control Swimsuit £27, Kaleidoscope

For the…Floozie

In retro flower power prints

This Frill halterneck top will add an extra cup size onto the less endowed and add some booty to the bottom half too. The cute rose print is ultra feminine for lazying by the pool and with the lace is a bit more dressed up  than your normal silky textured plain patterened bikini.

Rose frill top £20 rose frill pant £14 Floozie By Frost French

For the Sports fanatic

Simple yet sexy

I love the modern twist front top of this bikini and love how retro the colour is too. The thick sides are perfect for those wanting a little extra cover up and the top is as small as they go for bandeau styles ,yet is supporting at the same time with its tight back, perfect for shell collecting or Volleyball!

Bikini from Urban Outfitters

For the ones who take pool side fashion to another level

This funky printed all in one with chest split is for the fashionista in all of us! I love the tropical print and retro design. I prefer to have an even tan, but for those who aren’t too fussed this is perfect. The supportive cups and thicker straps are perfect for swimming or playing sports on the beach and makes a nice change to the skimpy numbers seen everywhere at the moment including on here!

Urban Outfitters

For the poolside reader

And hard-core tanner

Again…no strap lines! At one time the spaghetti straps we all the rage, thank heaven the bandeau has made its grand come back and is available to all those who don’t want the ugly ‘white bits’ anymore! The rose pattern is stunning, and with the white background it really makes the colours pop for a tropical/vintage feel.

ASOS Tapestry Rose Print Bandeau Bikini Top & ASOS Tapestry Rose Hipster Bikini Pant

For the Playful and chic

If you’re lucky enough to want to make yourself look bigger in the sun then this ruffle bikini is for you. The simple black colour is perfect for everyday and the tie straps on the briefs are perfect if you’re going all-inclusive! The ruffles will add more body and the pretty bow in the middle adds a lovely girly touch if you think black is too harsh.

Miso Ruffle Bandeau Bikini £22.99, Republic

If you’ve got it, flaunt it!

My favourite from the collection is this elegant strapless light gold chiffon maxi dress. With it’s rouche detail on the bust and floaty fabric it is sure to be my summer lust have! Pair with accessories in similar nudes from the collection to keep the focus on the dress.

If you’re going to invest in one bag this season invest in the clutch.

Here Evevee presents two stunning clutches in royal eye-catching colours; royal red and vivid blue

If you’re not sure how to wear such bright shades of red and blue then these clutches are prefect for incorporating a splash of colour into your Summer outfit. The twisted elegant designs of layered fabric give another dimension to them, taking them away from boring flat styles of latter day, instead injecting detail and femininity.

But if you are not ready for that colour pop yet, take a look at the other styles on the website. These include cut out, one shouldered and strapless nude numbers in floaty layers or prom style black evening dresses. The red strapless satin dress from the collection (above) and a black twisted front clutch (red version shown above) arrived for me today! The fabric on both clearly shows the brands lavishness and sensuous taste and the fit is like a glove! If it’s good enough for Evevee…

Another Pair Of Nudes

Jennifer Lopez wore the Jimmy Choo “Maria” suede platform pump while hosting American Idol in LA yesterday.

She looks utterly stunning and ever the style icon in this feminine nude ensemble made with Swarovski crystals by Georges Chakra Couture, who began customising gowns for clients and has now grown into the Haute Couture fashion house it is today.  The dress and shoes work so well together, complimenting her tanned skin and to die for pins!

Dressing Reese

Reese Witherspoon wears Jimmy Choo

Reese opts for the “Vita” sandal from the Choo 24:7 collection for her appearance on “Good Morning America” in New York yesterday.

Nude shoes are the ultimate wardrobe staple as they match any outfit from coloured dresses to casual wear and lengthen your legs too!

I love these high street alternatives…

Geri For NEXT

Geri Halliwell’s swimwear collection for NEXT

The former Spice Girl looks amazing in her sexy new range for NEXT, showing off her toned abs and bronzed beach bod. This is my favourite bikini (See below) from the new collection, with a Cath Kiston/ Laura Ashley design, it’s cute and retro at the same time.

The collection also sells strapless maxi dresses, kaftans, mix and match pieces in bright colours and designs in leopard print, dots and stripes; there is certainly an outfit to suit everyone here. She has even designed sunglasses and sandals! From strapless, one shouldered, cut-out, padded to non  padded…covered and chic to fun and skimpy, this range is certainly top on my holiday packing list. 

Geri has managed to design wearable pieces for us normal beings, and what’s more they’re at affordable price at last… Thumbs up Geri!

Weekend Outfit Idea

It’s getting warmer!!

Is it time to get the floral skirts out yet?…I think so!

Our new Spring obsession?

No longer the trend of grannies everywhere the floral skirt has made its way into our  shops and wardrobes. Rather than make your top half the centerpiece, veer downwards and mix up your look a little. I love this skirt pulled high and nipped in with a tan belt and a plain white vest top. Try it now with biker boots and light cardigans and later with gladiator sandals or light wedges.

And if a full length skirt is not your thing, try a tiered ra-ra skirt, a body con style or a bubble hem design.

Wear with …

… Eclipse gold chain necklace from Monsoon.
