•Frugal Buy* Accessorize bikini

Bikini top: £15, Accessorize. Bikini bottoms: £14, Accessorize. Towel: £20, Wood/Grey. Sunglasses: £15, Accessorize. Book: £10.39, Amazon
I don't buy as many bikinis as I used to, back in the day I would go on a 10 day holiday with 10 different styles. Nowadays, I have 4 -5 favourite styles - they're more classic too - a Topshop stripe one, a Heidi Klein taupe one (everyone needs one expensive wow factor one), a classic black high waisted style and a swimsuit. Gone are the days when I want to stand out in a bright white bikini (this was confirmed by the hen weekend in Marbella last year) - I much prefer to look chic in the background. And this certainly fits the bill.


It's a dead ringer for the Marysia one I love at £230. It's a waffle fabric which makes it super flattering against the skin, I sized up in the bottoms simply because I hate a clingy brief and these hold you in without unsightly bulges. They come with straps but they're detachable for someone like me who hates halterneck tan lines - so it's basically the ideal bikini. And the best bit? I could afford the swimsuit version too:
