INSPIRATION AND ADVICE
ASOS INSIDERS WEAR SWIMWEAR
By Justine Fedorowycz, 8 December 2018
Whether your summer plans involve lying semi-submerged on a pizza slice inflatable or riding waves at your nearest beach, you’re gonna need two things: a steady supply of sun protection and swimwear. So, we’ve scrolled through our ASOS Insiders’ social feeds to give you a few ideas – think swish one-piece cossies and summer-loving bikinis.
ASOS Insider Lotte is serving some serious swimwear flex in this all-white all-in-one. As well as offering extra support thanks to its contoured underwire cups, it’s also made with recycled polyamide yarn from recovered fishing nets. As a matter of fact, our Eco Edit has quite a few of these swimmers to choose from. Throw in blue skies and sunshine and you’re ready to get your swim on.
From clothes and bags to shoes and hats, leopard print has been doing the rounds this season (you probably didn’t need us to tell you that), so it’s only right that it would make a cameo in the swimwear department, too. Accessorising with a towel wrapped around her head and a pair of cat-eye sunnies, ASOS Insider Olive is giving us all the Audrey Hepburn vibes in her printed two-piece – we like.
We get it. It’s hot out there, but you can’t stay in the water 24/7, because, well, prune fingers. In other words, between taking the occasional dip, you might find yourself topping up your sun cream and catching some rays, amirite? Follow our Aussie-based ASOS Insider Ebony’s lead and get yourself a swimsuit that knows how to multitask. Her olive green, lace-up one-piece works just as well worn underneath a pair of denim cut-offs as it does in the pool.
With a backdrop this good, we’re totally feeling ASOS Insider Lesley’s less-is-more approach to her LBB (that’s little black bikini, FYI). And by piling her hair up on top of her head and going accessory-free, her cropped bikini top, complete with minimal spaghetti straps, steals almost as much focus as the scenery. Now, if someone could just book us on a one-way flight to Iceland’s Blue Lagoon, we’ll be on our way.
Stripes, meet texture. Just when you thought nautical-inspired swimwear couldn’t get any cuter, ASOS Insider Jana goes and proves otherwise with her crinkled bandeau bikini top and matching high-waist briefs – and now we’re reconsidering everything. Pair with a messy top-knot, slip a couple of emergency hair ties onto your wrist and you’re good to go.
