Our fashion & content director chooses her favourite bikinis for your beach holiday

Words by Flora Macdonald Johnston

If you're hitting the beach this summer, whether it be a pristine white sanded vision in Bali or your own private beach (AKA your back garden), the occasion deserves a fabulous and dopamine-inducing bikini. At KOIBIRD, our hand-picked selection not only offers flattering cuts and certain styles made with eco-conscious materials, but high octane glamour resulting in high octane happiness. Here’s my top five sets of the week.

90s babies will appreciate this ravey tie-dye bikini set in shades of citrus yellow and pink. For me, the sporty fit is what makes it feel contemporary and cool.

Increasingly, swimwear is not just for the beach, it’s made for beach living (AKA bar-hopping, gorgeous sea view dinners and margarita-fuelled dance floors). Oseree captured my holiday heart and mind the moment I set eyes on their sequined bikinis. Best of all, they do sequined sarongs too.

Cult label Triangl have some of the cutest prints in the bikini game, their designs remind me of 70s beachside Vogue editorials. Plus, the fabric means they are incredibly comfortable – a win-win.

With its contrast of vivid red and delicate blue frills, and the easy nature of its halter neck and adjustable rope ties, I was instantly drawn to this brightly coloured crochet bikini by My Beachy Side It's a bikini that deserves and equally awesome location. I’m picturing myself wearing this in Hawaii, coconut in hand with perfectly sea-tousled hair. There’s also a serious feelgood element to this label: My Beachy Side employs and helps refugees and women in Turkey who have suffered from political strife.

Medina is a brand that knows how to make womens' bodies sing with interesting cuts, straps, hardware, and even more fabulous colours.
