What to wear on the beach this summer
Looking for the perfect swimwear to wow on the beach this summer? With these flattering catwalk-inspired trends, you can’t go far wrong.
Shine in orange: Block colours were everywhere on the catwalk this season, with models showing off bold and bright shades on everything from swimsuits to sun dresses. If you’re keen to work the block colour trend then orange is the perfect choice. Ranging from soft peach-like shades to spicy paprika hues, it can flatter almost any complexion and is a sure way of standing out from the crowd.

Get liberal with lace: The latest sheer, lacey fabrics are perfect for the poolside – go for lace shorts and a crop top or, if you’re aspiring to high fashion, a strapless maxi-dress with a side slit a la Angelina Jolie. Bear in mind though that sheer fabrics tend to let the sun through, so make sure you apply plenty of sunscreen – particularly if you’ve been swimming. Check out a sun safety guide before hitting the beach to ensure that your skin is adequately protected from UV rays.
