Don’t settle on plain ol’ bikinis just yet! We’ve got the latest deets on beachwear fashion.

Summer holidays are here so it’s time for that long-awaited beach vacation! Triangle bikinis and flip flops are a well-tested and proven formula, but it’s time to dive into fresher styles.

Read on to get the deets on this summer’s hottest looks.

1 Retro-Inspired bikinis

Forget plunging necklines and thin straps. This summer, we’re travelling back in time with retro cuts and looks. Think high-waisted bikini bottoms, under-wires, bows, polka dots, and more!

We’re trading in high-cut panties for more conservative full panties. We love this trend because it covers the tummy and cheeks, making it friendlier for different body types.

2 Updated Monokinis

Speaking of friendlier cuts, we’re digging the monokini comeback – sporting modern lines and cut-outs, they’re a fresh take on the one-piece swimsuit you’d find in your mother’s closet.

Monokinis are great because they offer more coverage and hence, a sleeker silhouette. Choose one with strategic cut-outs to flaunt your assets and complement your figure.

3 Denim Overalls

Denim overalls are making their way from the 90s and into the now. They’re great for lounging at the beach or even as bikini cover-ups. Plus, they’re definitely more unpredictable than kaftan cover-ups.

We especially love how you can leave the straps unfastened for a shorts look, or fastened for a quick run to town from the beach.

4 Rompers and Playsuits

Instead of summer dresses, try out its fun cousins, rompers and playsuits. They’re one-piece and easy to throw on and unlike a dress, you’ll free to skip around without worrying about windy up-skirts.

Rompers and playsuits get extra utility points for their flexibility. You can easily dress one down with sandals and a beach hat or dress it up with a clutch and heels. Rompers go from day to night!

5 Colourful or Mirrored Sunglasses

We all love our beach selfies and an important part of that is our sunglasses. Colourful and mirrored sunglasses are on trend, and just totally fun! Plus, it’s impossible to look bad in a pair of sexy shades.

Coloured lenses immediately add interest to an otherwise plain outfit. Try a coloured lens with plain frames or classic prints if you’re new to the trend and too timid to dive right in.

6 Sandals

Sandals are the new flip flops. Single or multiple straps, sandals are comfortable, convenient, and hot on trend.  Wide and flat-strapped ones are particularly on trend and are widely seen on beauty bloggers.

For an extra pop of colour, opt for metallic straps or accents.
