Summer is here and this means good times and tan lines. The hottest swimwear trend for the festive season is the one-piece swimsuit -especially the 90’s high-leg trend. Celebs like Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid and Hailey Baldwin are all huge fans of this sexy and flattering cut.

Don’t be afraid to play with contrasting colours and different prints and patterns, because it’s all about the attention to detail.  The runway at SA Fashion Week was filled with bright hues, patterns and colour blocking, so step out of your comfort zone and make a major statement at the beach with a splash of colour.

To add a little ‘extra’ to you look, throw your favourite slogan t-shirt over your bikini and round off your outfit with statement sunglasses to take your look from glam to ‘oh, damn!’
