5 Ways With Swimwear

When it comes to classic swimwear, there is nothing more versatile than a white bikini. It's absolutely timeless, goes with anything and most importantly, looks great with a tan. There are a million ways to style it, whether you be by the pool, beach, or grabbing a spot of lunch, so I thought I'd share my top five favourite ways of styling a staple piece of swimwear such as this gorgeous white bikini from La Redoute.

Just the Way It Is

Bikini - C/O La Redoute || Sunglasses - Steve Madden

If sunbathing is the most important part of your holiday, you wouldn't want to be caught in anything more than your classic bikini. Paired with a pair of shades of your choice, lounging by the pool with a good book is pretty much the best way to go. The bottoms on this bikini have the most gorgeous detailing as well, making it a bit more unique than just a plain design. 

Evening Wear

Dress - Jane Norman (Old)

This one is perfect if you're going straight from the beach to the restaurant. The white bikini can go under pretty much any dress as it's a base colour, but here I've chosen one of my favourite white dresses as it matches perfectly!

A Pop of Colour

Sarong - C/O La Redoute

I absolutely adore the pairing of the bright coral pink sarong with the white bikini. It completely transforms the look and gives such a fun and playful edge. The little sarong fits perfectly and would look fantastic on the beach. 


Shorts - C/O La Redoute

This look is absolutely perfect for Spring, because who can go wrong with pastels am I right? White pretty much goes with everything, but it looks especially pretty with pastels (and in this case, my favourite: pink!). I paired the bikini top with some powder pink shorts, just undone at the top to flatter those with bigger hips like myself. I also added a pair of my favourite pink feather earrings and a pink ribbon for my head for the Disney Princess goes to the beach kind of look. 

Keeping it Casual

Harem Pants - C/O La Redoute || Hat - Miss Selfridge

This is perhaps my favourite outfit, because you know how much I love a floppy hat! Here, the bikini top is matched with these amazing patterned harem pants that fit tight around the waist but are loose and comfy everywhere else. They are absolutely perfect for chilling in. And because I couldn't resist, I added the floppy hat to add a bit more glamour to the look. 

I hope this gave you a bit of inspiration for your bikini wearing antics this year! You can see the La Redoute blog post featuring some of my photographs here! I was also thrilled to see that they chose one of my photos to bed the header of the post which actually blew my mind.
