After the recent heatwave in the UK saw the temperatures soaring to 40 degrees, I’ve been thinking about swimwear.
I don’t know about you, but it’s one of those things I absolutely dread buying. When I find a bikini or swimsuit that looks good, I feel great but I put off looking every.single.year.

The same can be said for 2022. After the past few years of going on staycations, I’ve not bothered much with swimwear. We all know the UK isn’t known for its warm weather (the heatwave being an anomaly).
Now I’m thinking about vacation outfits, and I’m in dire need of some cute swimwear. It seems that by waiting until now to think about it, I’ve done myself a huge favour because there’s still a huge selection of swimwear on sale.
It might be easy to go for the cheapest bikini you can find, but not all swimwear is created equal. Look for high quality swimsuits and bikinis rather than cheap and cheerful, as they’ll last you so much longer.
I’ve been obsessing over a few brands in particular this year. Oséree‘s lurex metallic sets are proving really popular as the trend for metallic swimwear explodes – and they have matching shorts!
Then there’s Jacquemus. The brand’s swim sets are surprisingly affordable – particularly when on sale, as they start from just £37 – and they won’t disintegrate after a few dips in the pool.
Rixo also have some sets on offer at the moment from just £36, with retro-inspired prints that belong in a Hawaiian beach hut.
Here’s a small selection of the incredible swimwear I’m talking about, on sale at Farfetch now. Keep scrolling for more.
