When it comes to celebs and bikinis, there are a few girls we always look to for predicting swim trends: Emily Ratajkowski is such a swim fanatic she’s set up her own line, Kylie Jenner has a phenomenal bikini collection (what doesn’t she have a vast collection of, really?) and Olivia Culpo is often the name we turn to when we’re looking for new labels and fresh trends. Summer will be here before you know it, but Olivia already has her holiday packing list nailed for 2018, thanks to her current vacation in the Bahamas. And she hasn’t been too shy to share the contents of her suitcase with us on Instagram.
All of her bikinis so far have been white or cream, a colour that many feel afraid of wearing, but from my own personal experience, I can guarantee that a well-fitting ice-white piece of swimwear feels and looks glamorous. But more than that she’s backing the off-the-shoulder sleeved style of bikini top, a trend we’ve seen bubbling away last year and arriving in droves this year. Whilst Culpo often cherry-picks her swim gear from really niche brands she finds across the globe, this is one key summer piece that is now widely available at all price points—high street included with ASOS backing the trend the most of all. With that in mind we’ve found some of the best versions to emulate her look during your next getaway…
Bargain bikini incoming!
The detailing really sets this one apart.
So good, right?
You can choose either these smaller briefs pictured (£53) or a high-waisted style for extra coverage.
This features a delicate floral appliqué on the bottoms.
Ultra-flattering on all figures.
Not great for tanning, but definitely great for posing.
Blue and white stripes are the always the sign that summer is coming.
