Brace yourself: the swimwear season is on its way. For many of us it’s a dreaded time of year, associated with unflattering lighting in changing rooms, wobbly bits that haven’t seen daylight in months, and bikinis that just won’t stay where they’re put. Well fear no more, because this is My Redoute’s guide to finding the best costume for your body shape – and looking and feeling gorgeous.
Prints are a major trend for 2012, with Diane von Furstenberg and Mary Katrantzou being two of the designers who turned out collections full of clashing patterns. Above are three different ways you could go with this trend – and here’s the lowdown on how to wear them.
La Redoute’s spring sale has landed with up to 50% off selected items, and we’re feeling spoilt for choice. After much deliberation we’ve chosen our top three items.
This canvas shopper also comes in red, sand and turquoise, and has a zip fastening for extra security. We’re lusting after the striped version – so French and so chic.
Check out the full spring sale and let us know which bargains you’ll be snapping up.
