Now that the sun is finally shining, it’s time to update your wardrobe with this season’s amazing styles. With everything from glitter to leather available in the shops, I checked out the hottest pieces of the year. And we'll start with bikinis:
I know choosing a bikini can be a real pain (see above), but the bikinis you'll see further on are so well made, they'll make any woman look like a super model!

This Glam Solids bikini immediately caught my eye, and I couldn’t not try it on. White is a brilliant colour for swimwear, as it really sets off a tan, and the cut is very flattering. This is an absolute must have!!

One of the newer styles, this trikini is sure to make sure that all eyes are on you! The plum colour mixes perfectly with white to give a classy, sophisticated look, which perfectly complements the playfulness of the cut.

White is a big craze for beachwear this year, and this swimsuit plays on that by mixing pure white with a bright eye catching pattern. This is sure to be the nicest suit on the beach, so snap one up before they sell out!

Want a more even tan? Check out the matching bikini, which has the same pattern but spread over a strapless top. It’ll give hideable tan lines, while keeping you looking very chic!

I’m a big fan of cover ups, and fallen in love with this Indian Journey one. Simply team with heels and a big necklace for instant glamour, or wear it over your swimsuit. The material is super soft, and it looks gorgeous when your sunkissed!

Another gorgeous pattern, but this time teamed with black straps and frills. The bikini is very girly, and I wasn’t too sure to start with, but it grew on me fast. Its forgiving, eye catching and bang on trend!

Feeling a little bloated? All of those meals can take its toll, so it’s always a good idea to have a fashionable swimsuit to cover up with. This is one of my favourites, in a distractingly hot pink. The swimsuit is strapless, but doesn’t cling to your stomach, and so is well worth the buy!

Want something a little more unusual? I love the geometric pattern on this bikini, and its bang on trend with its strapless style. If you find it feels a little big, take it into a bra shop, and they will easily alter it for you!

Perfect for lazing by the sea, this kaleidoscope pattered bikini is gorgeous! I love tie sides, and the bright blue material and beads keep this one looking very stylish. I really love this bikini, and I’m already looking for similar ones in other colours!!
