Here’s the thing with swimwear: the options out there often feel so far removed from the sense of style you’ve already honed. You spend ages building a capsule wardrobe of beloved basics and hero pieces, but finding a swimsuit or bikini to match the aesthetic? Impossible! Or is it?
Thankfully, this summer, there’s an entire raft of beloved brands – the kind that are already mainstays in your existing summer wardrobe – dipping their toe in the swimwear waters. Love Totême’s understated minimalism? They now do swimwear to match! Wear head-to-toe Ganni all year round? Just wait till you see this crocheted bikini! Turns out, the best swimwear brands are the brands you already wear and love. Here’s proof.
The brand of the moment, you’ll be hard pressed to find a style tastemaker that doesn’t have at least one Totême piece in their wardrobe. It’s a brand known for its collection of elevated basics in a signature (and rather understated) neutral colour palette. In swimwear terms, expect smocked textures, subtle monogramming and straight-cut silhouettes, like this Deep Neck Swimsuit, £140.Shop Now
Ganni’s MO? Presenting a playful, somewhat irreverent take on modern Scandi style, with clothes are easily identifiable through their use of colour, print and (often oversized) silhouette. And its swimwear line is no different. Every piece is made from either 100% certified recycled material or regenerated nylon yarn; as if this leopard print swimsuit wasn’t enough to smile about.Shop Now
