The Liberty’s Summer Guide to Swimwear

Swimwear season is finally here and at The Liberty we’re as excited as anyone to jet off somewhere exotic to soak up the sun. But before the bliss of your getaway, the stress of packing and finding the perfect poolside outfit can be overwhelming. Thankfully our 100+ stores can help you nail that beach babe look.

We know that finding the perfect poolside companion can be daunting (unless we’re talking about a piña colada!) as there is just so much choice to suit your individual shape and style.

So, if you have no idea where to start, let us help. Put your feet up and absorb our handy swimsuit style round up.

Red Hot

One piece costumes have surfaced as a key swimwear trend for this summer and there are so many flattering ones to choose from.

For us, it’s all in the details and we’re completely obsessed with this red High Crochet Neck Swimsuit £38 from River Island. More modest than a bikini for those who prefer to be more covered, this swimming costume is so hot that people will need sun cream to protect them from your style.

The Liberty Top Tip: Shopping for swimwear isn’t an everyday task so try on everything. This gives you a chance to play with colours, shapes and styles and really find what works for you.                                                                                               

Good Vibes Happen On Tides

When it comes to bikinis, we can’t get enough of this Striped Bardot Bikini Top, £16 from Topshop.

Playful and fun, two pieces allow you to mix and match, meaning packing is so much easier. The best thing about this swimwear style is that the top can double up as a cropped tee, making going from the beach to bar simple.

The Liberty Top Tip: Think practically about your purchases. If you’re planning on spending your summer at waterparks, stay away from bandeau bikini tops!

Slide Into Summer

Easy to slip on? Check! Stylish? Check!

Sliders are huge right now and we can see why. So bag yourself a pair of fuss-free sliders and channel your inner Rihanna this summer.

For us, we’ll be making sure these Harmony PU Knot Sliders £19 from Topshop are first in our case.

Feeling Fruity

Summer is the best time of year to experiment with vibrant tropical prints and is there a better place to start than with your swimwear?

This Twist Tropical Print Swimsuit £28 from Dorothy Perkins currently has us dreaming of sandy beaches and palm trees…sign us up!

The Liberty Top Tip: Being British, what’s the best part of a holiday? A tan! So if you’re conscious of tan lines, stay clear of bikinis and swimsuits with detailed straps.
