The Summer holidays are almost here and so it’s time to start thinking about organising our suitcase. Cue mild panic!
But it doesn’t have to be – we asked 4 of our favourite fashion bloggers, who always look impossibly stylish wherever they are in the world, for their top tips on everything from how they wear their bikinis, to who their ultimate Summer Goddesses are and their tips to avoid a fashion fail.
My summer holiday goddess is: Elle McPherson

When it comes to swimwear idols, it’s the Aussie girls that nail the effortless beach babe look. The Body herself, Elle McPherson can give those young, bikini-clad selfie-oholics a run for their money.
Elle shows how the long and lean can embrace the triangle tops and tie-sides of string bikinis and for more coverage it’s the sports-inspired styles which suit this athletic bod.
My tip to avoid a holiday fail: Don’t look like you’re not wearing one!

It may sound obvious but make sure your swimwear looks like swimwear! While nude tones are positively chic in many areas of fashion and beauty, when it comes to your bikini, be careful with nude tones – make sure the colour contrasts your skin tone, or has detailing like ruching or texture.
Kylie Jenner has an enviable figure and budget to match but it’s always a good idea to contrast or complement your skin tone to turn heads for the right reasons and not because it looks like your luggage got lost en route!
My summer holiday goddess is: MIC’s Lucy Watson
Lucy’s just so effortless on the beach and I’m a great believer that less is more in the Summer months. It’s all about going au naturale, with simple swimwear and some crazy shades.

My tip to avoid a holiday fail: Embrace natural beauty
My tip for creating the perfect beach look is to leave the hair extensions, the false eyelashes and the heels for the night clubs. Too much effort can deter from your natural beauty. So embrace bare faced to achieve that perfect sunkissed glow.
My summer holiday goddess is: The Olsen Twins
Mary Kate & Ashley Olsen – I just love their luxe bohemian approach to summer style! More than just a bikini, a fab kimono, cool hat, and lots of accessories will make you look anything from basic. I always find inspiration in these two bohemian petite goddesses as they rock any outfit so well regardless of their height.
My tip to avoid a holiday fail: Get the fit right
Look for swimwear that makes you feel comfortable and fits well! Instead of getting a smaller size and putting pressure on yourself to fit in it, get a size that doesn’t “pinch” your skin, something that could actually look really unflattering. Nothing looks better than confidence, so find a swimsuit that brings out your best assets and fits your style!
My summer holiday goddess is: Gigi Hadid
Gigi Hadid – she is the ultimate swimwear babe because she is sporty and feminine both at once and always inspires me to work out.
My tip to avoid a holiday fail: Stay protected
My tip to not be a swimwear fail is to stay safe in the sun with a good sunscreen – swimwear never looks good on a burnt body .
So now you have all the right tips from our fashion bloggers, you can go and put it into practice. Check out our bikinis to kick start your holiday wardrobe, and make a splash on the beach this summer for all the right reasons.
