We’ve rounded up the prettiest swimsuits of the season in hope that summer will kick into gear and make a welcome return. From candy stripes to ditsy florals, high street updates to investment keep-forever pieces, here are 26 of the sweetest one-pieces to shop now.

Whether you’ve booked Ibiza or are settling for a UK coastal staycation, swimsuit season is back. We’re deviating from our usual chic black option and slipping into pastel shades, pretty frills and charming prints.

The high street has plenty of affordable options, from H&M’s baby blue seersucker stripes to M&S’s coral cut-out one-piece. If you’re looking to up the budget a little and make an investment in your beachwear collection now is the time, as there have never been so many exciting new brands creating gorgeous swimwear. Think art-inspired prints from Cala de la Cruz to the soft colour palette and fully sustainable collection from Peony.

Leading the way in clever swimwear is Paper London. Their seriously chic collections are made using techno fabric that protects against UV rays equivalent to an SPF50+ sun cream. Plus, the Brit brand only works with sustainable and recycled fabrics. Conscious and cool in equal measure.

The price point isn’t cheap but these are pieces built to last. Soften the blow by doubling up one of their one-pieces as a top tucked into denim cut-offs in the day and fluid silk skirts after hours.


Conscious and cool in equal measure, Paper London's dramatic ruffle one-shoulder one-piece is sure to make waves on the beach.
