No need to lament the end of summer quite yet – particularly if, like me, you may or may not currently be living inside your own oven. The marvellous Willis has requested my help in blogging the tsunami of new releases currently hitting the grid and, like any good sister who senses an opportunity, I at first refused and stamped my foot and then begrudgingly gave in, as long as she does the washing up for the next month.
And so I thought I might begin with a post that helps me feel less hot and sweaty than I currently am, and what better way to do that than with beachwear? There are so many bikinis and cover-ups available right now that it was hard to know where even to start, but V.e. rescued me with a zebra print that caught my eye and my heart. It comes as a full outfit and there are alternative patterns available for those not keen on the equine.
Not to be outdone, Zaara has released a range of bikinis and cover-ups that work beautifully together but can as easily be worn apart. There’s a huge range of colours on offer for both parts of the outfit, which makes mix-and-matching a time-consuming affair.
And then there is this adorable mesh Ripple Outfit from Sakide, which comes with a HUD to change the colour of the top and shorts separately. I’ve shown just three of the shades available, but greens, blacks and more are also included. I think I have my seaside wardrobe sorted for the remainder of summer – just don’t tell Willis how much fun I had choosing it or she’ll refuse to do the dishes.
