This simple black bandeau bikini from Eres is given an interesting twist with the one-shoulder strap. The bikini uses Eres' special peau douce fabric, which has a supportive and sculpting effect for the bust and bum.

Matteau triangle bikini

Just like every girl needs a fail-safe little black dress in her closet, so should everyone have a go-to triangle bikini. Matteau's simple, medium-coverage bikini comes in a variety of colours, from olive to white, polka-dot to plain. Don't forget to stock up on the essential little black bikini, too—a girl can never have too many of those.

Made by Dawn bikini

Red is a classic colour that's perfect for the pool or the beach: the contrast of crystal blue water with rosy swimwear is a dream combination. Made by Dawn's ribbed jacquard bikini briefs and ruffled top are the perfect pair for your summer wardrobe.

Alix one-piece

This quirky swimsuit from Alix avoids falling into the one-piece trap of trying to be too clever or complicated. The sleek design uses layers to create a one-shoulder wrap and asymmetrical waist cutout for a modest but gorgeous look.

Stella McCartney bikini

Embroidery is one of 2017's favourite trends, so there's no reason not to embrace it in swimwear, too. This navy-toned two-piece from Stella McCartney features floral embroidery and a scalloped edge.

She Made Me crochet bikini

There's something effortlessly Instagrammable about a crochet bikini. Whether you're soaking up the sun in Bali or hitting a hotel pool in Hong Kong, the cheeky coverage of this bikini from artisan Aussie brand She Made Me makes for a gorgeous and comfortable outfit.

Johanna Ortiz bikini

For something with a bit more pizazz, this baby-blue bikini from Johanna Ortiz is sure to turn heads. The structured high-waisted bottoms are balanced by the shoulder ruffles, and the top has no underwire to give maximum comfort.

J.Crew printed bikinis

The latest collection from J.Crew has us starry-eyed over their cute patterns and bold palette of colours. For an alternative look, mix and match some of their bikinis: keep the colours similar, and play with patterns instead.

Lisa Marie Fernandez bikini set

If you think this bikini looks like a suit, you aren't far off: this three-piece bikini (yup, three) from  Lisa Marie Fernandez is a retro tribute to '50s-style high-waisted swimsuits. The cardigan component serves as the perfect shoulder cover up, and the cute button detailing gives this bikini a smart finish.

Solid and Striped one-piece

The one-piece is back this year, in a big way. This nautical-coloured Solid and Striped swimsuit is a simple but stylish solution for junk boats and beach days: we love the low back detail and high, elongating leg cut.
