Not just reserved for your bathroom attire, terry cloth is a favourite this summer for swimsuits, co-ords and more.

Inspired by 1970s poolside glamour, this plush fabric is reimagining the likes of swimsuits, shorts, jumpsuits and more this summer. Channelling a relaxed, fun energy that’s fluffy and quick-drying, retro towelling is undoubtedly suited to Mediterranean climates and post-pool dips.

If you’re bored of the same holiday fabrics we reach for year after year (we’re looking at you, linen) terry towelling is the new kid on the block to make a splash in and dry off quickly after.

Towelling tw0-pieces are essential when you want something to throw on and go pre-pool and soft bucket hats exude a cool-girl attitude we’re ready to buy into.

Here are 20 pieces to shop now and pack for your next trip.

Cute and cosy, summer's beach wear has been reimagined.
