Whether you prefer your swimsuit colourful, plain or patterned; bikini, tankini or one piece, there is something out there for everyone. Here’s a few of our favourite swimwear pieces from in store and online, inspired by some of summer’s top trends.

Tropical designs are as popular as ever this season with floral and plant prints making themselves seen everywhere. If you’re wanting to embrace a splash of colour, this is the perfect way to do it – pick one that features your favourite colour and you’re good to go.

If bright colours aren’t your cup of tea, that’s okay. There are some stunning monochrome swimsuits that are just as eye-catching. We love the addition of metallic details on some of these suits, for a little bit of extra flair.
