If you want to add interest to your summer look, go for a swimsuit that has a texture. Wool, crochet and other fabrics have been given a makeover for the modern world and look great in bathing suits.

Asymmetrically Awesome

If you really want to make a statement, an asymmetrical one-piece is the way to go. You can show plenty of skin in a whole new way and can even throw one of your favourite maxi dresses over an asymmetric suit and still look great.

Magical Monochrome

Bathing suits may have gotten smaller over the years, but they always look good in one solid colour. Monochrome swimsuits are a great way to make a statement, and you can also accessorise them in different ways. If you’re on a budget, they are also an excellent option as you can mix and match accessories rather than investing in a range of different suits.

Fun Frills

One-piece swimwear looks great with a frill, a ruffle or even some ruching. There are some stunning suits that have gone from drab to fab thanks to a few small touches and clever design tricks.

Cute Cutouts

A one-piece doesn’t have to be solid. Opt for a costume that has cutouts in cute or cheeky places, and when you need to preserve your modesty, you can simply pop on one of the maxi dresses you’d find at https://www.axparis.com/collections/maxi-dresses and still look fantastic. Plus, cutouts let you accentuate your good bits and hide the bits you love a little less.

Scallops and Sequins

If you really want to make a splash, invest in a suit that has sequins or seductive scallops around the neckline. With sequins, you’ll add a bit of sparkle and an extra dash of glamour; with scallops, you’ll get to highlight your cleavage in a very flattering way. There are plenty of fabrics that are now suitable for swimwear, so embrace them and ensure that you make the most of what’s on offer!
