Belt up

It’s time to shake up your swimwear collection and opt for this season’s most loved detail – the belt.  While it may usually be all about the straps and cut-outs, this time it’s what’s round your waist that’s getting all the attention. The belted swimsuit is a hero style that’s loved by celebrities and influencers alike, and here at Figleaves we have so many gorgeous one-pieces to choose from, you’ll struggle to choose just one.

A contrasting belt-like detail around you middle or just under your breasts highlights those key areas, and draws attention to your curves. It’s a clever trick that’ll make you feel amazing and you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it in your swimwear wardrobe.

Perfect prints

A bright, bold print can be broken up with a clashing waist belt detail like these beauties. Team with a colour-pop kaftan and golden sandals to complete the look. Note: salty hair and glowing holiday skin unfortunately not included.

Sports chic

A belt strip along a sports swimsuit gives it extra chic points and the trick to keeping the look sleek is to go for classic colours. Add a bright beach shirt and get the activewear edge with Calvin Klein flip flops or Havaianas.

Nod to nautical

If you want to opt for a style that’ll never date, then go for nautical. A navy swimsuit paired with crisp white accessories and hints of blue will have you beach-ready in an instant. Add a slick of red lippie and golden jewels for extra pool-side glam.
