Here comes the sun: New beach-ready swimsuits for summer
If you’ve got an upcoming resort getaway marked on your calendar (if you don’t, you definitely should treat yourself by the way) or you’re just looking for some quality ‘me time’ lounging by the pool in sunny Singapore, the prevailing warm weather months practically call for you to give your arsenal of swimwear a quick refresh.
We’ve culled a little something for everyone, from timeless classic silhouettes to trendy statement swimsuits that’ll set you apart from the beach crowd. Check out our top picks of swimsuits to own ahead.
Featuring an uber cute knotted bandeau detail, cutouts, and bold abstract prints in loud hues, this swimsuit also holds a strong front on the environmentally friendly department; it’s made from an Italian fabric woven from recycled fibers and is digitally printed to reduce waste. It’s also infused with SPF50+ protection, natch! P.s. We still suggest you apply sunscreen on the rest of your body.
Fendi’s iconic candy-pink Prince of Wales-checked print takes the form of this chic halterneck swimsuit. Made from honeycomb-effect stretch fabric and cut to a bandeau shape with padded underwired cups for maximum support, this number also has straps that are embellished with a gunmetal Fendi logo plaque.
The psychedelic flower print on this swimsuit is inspired by Mexico’s native cacti. Apart from its vibrant and eye catching design, it also has a braided halter neck tie with tassel ends, and a crossover front with side cut-outs for a flattering figure-skimming illusion. While we’re on the topic of figure-flattering bathers, read more about flattering swimsuit silhouettes to complement your body shape here.
Exude retro vibes with pale-blue cornflower hues like the ones seen on swimsuit. Featuring a gathered waist fastened by a matching belt, a high-cut thigh and frill details on the neckline, this adorable number was made from stretch-seersucker with skinny self-fastening halter ties.
For those who fancy something slightly more whimsical, turn to this light pink one-piece with eye-catching graphics in the form of a landscape print of a desert across the front. Featuring burgundy-red, white and teal-blue prints of cacti, the sun and coyotes, this scoop neck number also has a flattering high-cut legs silhouette to grant the illusion of legs for days.
