The Bikini Edit - Holiday Edition

With it being February already and holiday season just around the corner, I thought it would be a great chance to share with you some of my current bikini favourites from the high street. This year so far, I'm off to Crete in April for my 23rd Birthday and Ibiza in May for my Sister-in-Law's Hen Weekend, and I can't wait to soak up the sun and free myself from the chaotic and crazy London life. Now, I wouldn't usually be one for a bikini, but as of the last year, I have felt a lot more body confident and I feel like I'm ready to show a little skin and enjoy myself! 
High Street Bikinis

So far this year, I've already purchased a couple pairs of bikini bottoms, I've been searching for a while to find the perfect pair that fit nicely, flatter my body shape, and just some that I feel confident and happy in, and I've just chosen simple high-waisted bottoms as I feel these show my shape without revealing too much and making me uncomfortable. The first pair, I picked up from Missguided via ASOS, and I am in LOVE! You can never go wrong with a simple pair of black bottoms, but I adore the lace up sides that just add an extra something, making them look more stylish and on trend. The second pair, are just simple black bottoms, again from ASOS, as I feel black is such a sexy and confident colour, which means you can go bright and bold on the top half, and still look fantastic!

I absolutely adore this colour blocked bikini top from New Look. The colours are so bold and vibrant, I know it will look great while I soak up the sun. I feel that structured, more bra-esque bikinis are quite flattering and I like that this one has detachable straps, so you can remove them when tanning.

New Look Pink Colour Block Underwired Bikini Top 

Bold prints are great when you want something plain and neutral on the bottom half, a rule that I'm following, so this gorgeous tropical printed bikini top is a winner for me! I love the touches of blues and greens and pinks, and I feel it is so fun and girly, perfect for a beach retreat! I also love the simple, little cut-out detail and this just makes the top that little bit edgier and cute.
New Look Blue Tropical Print Cut Out Bikini Top

Again, another patterned bikini. The colours in this one are much more bold and eye-catching, perfect for those wanting to draw the attention away for problem areas, like stomachs and legs. I love the contrast of the black and the red, and as a more bra shaped bikini, I know this would be super flattering and comfortable to wear.
H&M Floral Push Up Bikini Top 

I've never browsed on Topshop for swimwear before, but I found this really simple green and white printed top and fell in love. I love the simple, less "in your face" print and I think this would suit all skin tones and look great win a tan!
Topshop Bamboo Print Sweetheart Plunge Bikini Top 

You can never go wrong with an all black bikini. Something about all black swimwear is so feminine and sexy, it's a wardrobe must have. I like simple black bikini tops, and with this one from H&M in particular, the cross-over front and cut out sides make this one a little bit more special and adds a cool vibe to your swimwear.
H&M Black Bikini Bandeau Top 

For more of a glamorous, more chic bikini look, this stunning top from River Island is a girls dream! The colour for one is simply gorgeous! But what I like about this one the most is the detail of the back. It's so simple, yet so sexy and feminine. And the metal detail on the straps adds the sparkle and makes it look a lot more expensive!
