Beautiful blues: Swimsuit inspiration for those heading for winter sun

Decrease Font Size Increase Font Size Text Size Print This Page

If you are about to escape the dull winter weather in the UK and jet off to a warm and sunny destination, we have selected some of our favourite swimsuits for your suitcase. Not only is the one-piece continuing to dominate beach trends, but marine blues that match the sea are also popular…

Heidi Klein is one of the go-to destinations for luxury swimwear. The collection always impresses and we love the sleek, chic lines on this piece (£140), which oozes simple glamour. Also, we can let you in on a little secret, it’s reversible! How wonderful to have two options… this is a must have!

Melissa Odabash is another top place to shop when you are looking for outstanding quality. The designs are stylish but also feel very gentle to wear. We adore the Zanzibar Blue Leaf Halterneck Ruched Knot Onepiece Swimsuit (£226). This will certainly turn heads by the pool or beach for all the right reasons.

Among the Kimberley London collection is this Baby Blue one-piece (£130). Granted, you will have to share a similar figure to the TV star in order to show this design off to its best, but the high-leg cut will certainly appeal to some and we love the soft shade of blue that has been used.

If you have a fuller figure, the Simply Be website offers a number of plus size designs. You can take advantage of the current sale to get this Blue Bandeau Swimsuit for just £22. The low cut on the bottoms at the back will be particularly flattering.

If you’re a mum-to-be, you can elongate your bump with this maternity swimsuit from ASOS. The classic blue and white stripes will work well for any boat trips that you may have planned while enjoying a sunny escape. Again, this features in the sale and is also available for just £22.
