If you're getting ready for the beach, whether in the UK or somewhere abroad, you're probably already thinking about the type of swimwear you want.
It doesn't matter if you're heading in the water or simply want to sit on the sand and work on your tan, you definitely need a swimsuit.
But what swimsuit styles are hot for SS15?
Rather than just featuring slim spaghetti straps on the top of your bikini this year, choose pieces that use them on the bottoms too. Stylised straps are forming patterns and more intricate designs while still being quite simplistic.
This looks great with monochrome shades as well as block colours, creating a chic and sophisticated look. You can also get one-pieces that have similar strap designs, giving this staple style a revamp.
Another great way to dress up a standard one-piece is to choose one that features cut-outs. These add a bit more sex appeal and can actually help to show off your figure.
The most common cut-outs are on your sides, which helps to emphasise or create an hourglass figure; giving you confidence and ensuring you look fab on the beach.
Taking a cue from the 1940s and 50s, high-waisted bikinis are back with a bang. This look helps to cinch your waist in and is flattering for all shapes and sizes.
You can either choose a standard bikini top to accompany your high-waisted bottoms or opt for a longline style so as to show off a minimal amount of midriff. This is still a really flattering look and is ideal for those who don't usually wear bikinis.
The plunging neckline has been a popular design feature of dresses on the red carpet as of late, so it's no surprise that it is also being used throughout swimwear. This super sexy look is the ultimate choice if you want to make a statement.
The deep neckline – often going past the belly button – features on one-pieces and looks good with most patterns or colours, allowing you to totally tailor your beach style.
