Swimming Away

Finished are the days of neon and diamante thongs, when it comes to swimming, it seems as though we have reverted back to the older and more flattering costumes. Here are some of the key pieces that rock my boat. From simple slimming black to figure flattering white, to the 80s iconic Baywatch look, the more you cover, the better.

Simple in black. No need to look further the Chanel to channel this eternal look, complete with classic Chanel jacket and a big white hat to finish.

To get Brigitte's complete look, Salvatore Ferragamo have recently released their Resort 2012 collection with stunning monochrome outfits, over-the-top hats with this number really shouting out to me.
