Woman & Home’s ultimate buy…
Slender Wrap Front Ombre Swimsuit (image above) £130-135
Nothing shows off enviable curves like a wrap front style. We love it as it keeps all your secrets safe, but your best bits on show whilst you lounge poolside. Glamorous and grown-up, you can’t go wrong. Feel figure confident front and back with a low-scoop back-detail and wave goodbye to tan lines.
Straw tassel sun hat £55
Beach, bar or lying by the pool… up the glam factor instantly with an oversized hat. The bigger your brim the better and this summer’s buzzword is straw. Go big or go home, and with colourful tassel details, you’re totally on trend. Work it with a simple summer dress or go all out with a curve-creating one piece.
Beach living high waist tummy control bottoms and bandeau bikini top £35-£40
Comfortable, chic and the best bit – convertible… this is the holiday bikini we’ve all been dreaming about. Wear strapless to avoid those strap marks. It’s flattering and it’s fashionable so all areas are covered. Look for briefs with a slightly higher waist and tummy control to keep you feeling confident.
Woman & Home’s Fashion Director’s pick…
Rolled sleeve soft blouse £55
Loose, luxurious and in easy to dress up or down navy… you can sling this blouse over anything. For a more laid-back look wear it open over your favourite bikini or button it up with smart, printed shorts for a more formal feel. The best bit? You can roll back those sleeves. Sneaky, secret buttons mean the hard work is done for you… alter your sleeve length neatly, depending on the weather.
Woman & Home loves…
Racy red will always get you noticed, but the trick about a tankini that you can really trust is that it will keep you covered. A criss-cross front is guaranteed to flatter a bigger bust, and hidden tummy control will instantly create a smooth and sexy silhouette.
Natural canvas tote bag £20
Sunnies – check, kaftan – check, beach towel – check… on those long summer days you really need a big bag you can sling everything in. Look for neutral tones that will go with everything, whatever you’re wearing, and just a pop of colour on the trim.
Women’s slingback wedges £55
When comfort is key, look no further than wearable wedges. They’re the perfect pair to complete that capsule day-to-night wardrobe without losing the glam factor! Your legs will look longer and your feet will last longer! What’s not to love?
Woman & Home’s holiday wardrobe staple…
Women’s denim shorts £45
When your day could take you anywhere you can always rely on a stylish pair of shorts. Go for indigo for a smart denim look and you’ll be able to dress these up or down… add a lightweight tunic or a smart blazer and work them around the clock.
