Style code: HWB. High waisted bikini

Every summer you develop an obsession over a certain type of cut or fabric. This year I’ve come to realize that velvet and seersucker swimsuits are back – those textures that you saw in your mum’s photos by the beach. Furthermore, the plain briefs are here to stay. Popular until the 80’s, the high waisted bikini is both feminine and flirtatious. You might say that such a cut is more granny-style than modern but I can assure you it’s stylish enough at any age.

This hand beaded high-waisted bikini bottom is flawless! It’s the right thing to wear at a beach party with a fringed kaftan and satin shoes. Add a few statement bangles and ask for a glass of Mimosa!

Striped high waisted bikini

Can’t avoid the stripes! I love them – they’re fresh, playful and everything in between! Wear such a bikini from Tezenis with a broderie anglaise frock and colorful linen slippers for a true French Riviera vibe. If you don’t like this kind of bra opt for a plain white bustier maybe.

We all dream of that immaculate bikini but it’s kind of hard to find! This lace-up model from the Italian brand Calzedonia is hard to ignore. Take it with you on the Amalfi coast especially if you have a pool with a view like this one here.

Shop online and in all Calzedonia stores.
