Summer in most places may be over, but that doesn’t mean your hot girl summer has to come to a halt. For the island with sunshine all year long, swimwear can basically be considered a wardrobe staple.
We’ve rounded up 12 designs that will make bikini shopping a whole lot easier. Whether you love to show some skin in a skimpy two-piece or you prefer a silhouette-hugging one-piece, keep scrolling for our current new-in favourites.
Here’s a little history lesson for you: Austrian-born designer Rudi Gernreich was known for pushing the boundaries of fashionable norms, especially with his monokini that left the breasts exposed. While we’re not asking you to plunge into the realm of exhibitionism, you can however, show off your summer body in this fiery orange piece that’s sure to turn heads too.
Local swimwear label K.Blu proves that a one-piece swimsuit doesn’t have to be boring when it comes with Peranakan-inspired patterns and a plunging neckline.
This Adriana Degreas creation cleverly uses a black panel to slim and tuck the tummy. Fake it till you make it — and with the seductive, deep v-neckline, you can.
Plunging neckline? Check. Slimming black shade? Check. Gold buttons that give a touch of old money glamour? Check. This chic black Balmain number has everything we want in a swimsuit and screams sophistication.
This Vilebrequin two-piece gives a refreshing, contemporary take to the classic camo print. We also diggin’ the asymmetric silhouette as it gives the bikini a strong-woman, glamazon vibe.
What’s summer without a dash of nature-inspired prints? We love the addition of the green band detail on this Marks & Spencer combo as it gives it that sporty, Calvin Klein edge without trying too hard.
Don’t let bikini straps cramp your tan lines — opt for this H&M bandeau set instead. The cute floral detail also add a sense of playful flirtatiousness to this simple piece.
Everybody needs an LBB — little black bikini — in their lives, especially if it comes with a sexy deep v-neckline and a bare back silhouette, like this Miss Selfridge piece.
Not only are we loving the geometric tribal-esque print, the strappy design has a bondage aesthetic, without being overtly coquettish or trashy.
Here’s something for the ladies who surf or spend large amounts of time by the sea. This rashguard swimsuit frees you from the fuss of having to reapply sunscreen on your upper body. Plus, the top is pretty enough to double as a crop top for easy weekends.
Flaunt your shoulders with this off-shoulder pick which also does the job of accentuating your chest. We love the white and black colourway which gives gives it a classic and modern effect.
