Classic swimsuit

Classic swimsuits are comfortable and practical, but that doesn’t mean they need to be boring. Simple swimsuits are timeless holiday style and you can add drama with another timeless piece in these bold cateye frames by Valentino. The cateye silhouette is glamorous, sophisticated and as classic as a one-piece swimsuit. The black colourway is completely versatile, but given a splash of character with the marble pattern along the arms.

Sporty swimsuit

Sporty swimwear never needs to be unstylish, and neither do sports sunglasses. Pair your athletic swimsuit with a pair of matte blue Prada Sport frames for a slick finish.

Cut-out Swimsuit

Cut-out swimsuits are the latest trend. Follow their modern spirit with a pair of cut out frames like these Miu Miu sunglasses. The geometric, unique style compliments the contemporary cut-out style of swimwear perfectly.

Triangle Bikini

Little bikini, big sunglasses. Classic little triangle bikinis are ideal for those wanting to get the perfect tan but you can add drama to your look with an oversized pair of sunglasses. The geometric shape of these Stella McCartney frames adds a splash of individuality to your classic holiday look.

High-Waisted Bikini

High Waist Bikini

High waist bikini bottoms are extremely flattering and beautifully vintage. Compliment their retro spirit with a shiny pair of Ray-Ban round frames; they are the ultimate vintage accessory.

Bandeau Bikini

Another style ideal for optimum tanning is the bandeau. Although they are a flattering style, they lack bold shaping. Add flattering sharp lines to your look with these modern rainbow Fendi frames.

Brazilian

Whether it’s a swimsuit or a bikini, the Brazilian style is sexy and bold. Such a flirty style of swimwear deserves the right fiery pair of sunglasses. The Lily Saint Laurent frames are a top choice this season, and the hot red colour couldn’t match the sex appeal of a Brazilian swimsuit more.
