Beach babes

Because the weather has been so hot lately i'm planning a trip to the beach with my lovely friends to the beach for some sun, sand and hopefully surf too.

Kanch has been to a Wedding on Saturday that took place on a yacht and she got the most fabulous tan, needless to say i was a little jealous.

I decided to go on Net a Porter to check out what the designers are doing for swimwear. I was quite intrigued because, well swimwear is swimwear, there are rarely trends for swimwear, and come on, there’s so little fabric to work with what can you do? Well I went undercover on Net a Porter and had a look around. I found some really great pieces, bikinis, reversible bikini tops, wraps, sarongs, dresses, tunics, jumpsuits and maxi dresses.

I noticed there wasn’t really a trend for swimsuits this season, I remember when the one piece blew up and everyone wanted one with the funky holes on the side and the zigzag shaped style. I wasn’t really into them because of the really strange tan lines you would get, those kind of swimsuits were more for show, ya know?

Here are some of my faves!

These coverups are stunning!! I love the draping of the black dress and how the sides are cut out.
The second is just bohemian goddess.

I love this swimsuit, and it looks amazing as a top too.- Styled perfectly

I'm loving colour of the of the first suit, and the funky aztec print of the second and the vintage 50s silhouette of the third
