Summer-Ready Swimsuits That'll Get That Beach Vacay On The Road

Norma Kamali Goddess swim dress, US$536.98 (S$727.45) from Net-a-Porter
Like its name suggests, you’ll be looking like a goddess with this midnight blue swimsuit from Norma Kamali. Sporting a flowing handkerchief hem and wrap ties, this is perfect for those who want to cover up a little more. The deep plunge neckline shows off south of the decolletage while the gathered waistband and ruffled hem also accentuates an hourglass shape. We suggest pairing this with grey sunnies and a cream kimono while you enjoy the sun by the pool. Zimmermann Allia wrap-effect floral-print swimsuit, US$330.19 (S$447.31) from Net-a-Porter
It’s girly, happy and bright — everything a swimsuit should be. This one-piece Zimmermann creation sports cheerful florals that are iconic of the label, and is super hot thanks to its plunging neckline and cinched waist. Wrap a sarong around your waist and slip into straw sandals to finish the look. Matteau swimsuit, US$247.76 (S$335.64) from Net-a-Porter
If you want a little more sun protection and coverage when you go to the beach, this piece is for you. It’s equal parts elegant and practical, and shows just the right touch of skin with its sexy v-neckline. You can wear this with denim shorts for a fuss-free get-up when you are heading to and from the beach. Mara Hoffman Gamela belted striped textured swimsuit, US$324.77 (S$439.97) from Net-a-Porter
While we wouldn’t recommend women who are conscious of their waist to wear this Mara Hoffman piece, the horizontal stripes of this swimsuit would be great for people with a more petite build as it can help widen and balance your proportions. And you don’t have to worry about being shapeless because the wrap-around can accentuate your feminine curves. Finish with a pair of golden hoops. Camilla reversible embellished printed triangle bikini, US$391.89 (S$530.90) from Net-a-Porter
This might seem like just a colourful tropical floral printed bikini set — and it’s gorgeous, to be fair. However, we love that the panty can be reversed to reveal a leopard pattern design so you can easily switch up your looks or match with other bikini sets in your collection. Throw on a scarf-print kaftan to really play up the opulent patterns. Missoni Mare metallic printed triangle bikini, US$336.50 (S$455.86) from Net-a-Porter
Your love for logomania doesn’t have to stop at the beach or the pool. Go bright and bold when you’re wearing this gold Missoni bikini. Wear this outstanding set with an unbuttoned oversized white shirt and tie a knot around your waist to get that casual, chic look. Oysho Breton striped set, price available in store
Spanish clothing label Oysho recently debuted their first Singapore branch at Jewel in Changi Airport and it’s a great place to get new swimwear and undergarments. This striped piece features a high-waisted panty that will be great for those who are looking to tuck in their belly for a slimmer silhouette. Plus, we love the nautical-inspired vibe. Throw an off-white shirt over it when you’re heading to the beach bar. Zara asymmetric colour block swimsuit, S$59.90
Sporting a unique one shoulder design with a sultry diagonal cut out, this Zara one-piece is super sexy yet tasteful. We especially love the sleek and modern colour-blocking design. This is so sculptural that we reckon you could wear it out like a bodysuit while pairing it with a pair of wide-legged trousers and strappy sandals. Mango ruffled bikini bottom, S$35.90
Girly girls will never say no to ruffles, so this Mango piece is perfect if that’s you. Bonus: It’s great for small-chested ladies as the layered frills help add dimension to the bust area. Finish with a batik kimono and sliders Topshop black split middle swimsuit, S$59.90
This sexy backless number is brought several notches higher with its cut-out design around the tummy. Go with a pair of sandal heels to play up the strappy and ribbed quality of this Topshop swimsuit. H&M halterneck swimsuit, S$44.95
Nothing says ‘look at me’ more than fiery chilli red swimsuit. The halterneck silhouette of this H&M piece is not only seductive, it also makes it easy to slip in and out of this number. Style this with a pair of bell-bottom jeans and a messy bun (yes, here’s how you can wear your swimsuit as a top).
