Bardot necklines, ruffles and crop tops: standout swimwear to pack this summer

The best capsule wardrobe for a weekend away wouldn't be complete without a swimsuit or bikini, and now's the time to pick a favourite and place your order.

Whether your perfect sunshine holiday involves reading the latest bestseller while you relax on a sun lounger in Greece, swimming laps in a pool in the south of France, or partying at a beach-front club in Ibiza, there are classic swimsuits and bikinis that will see you through this summer and beyond, and others which nod to this season's big trends – like ruffles, crop tops and off-the-shoulder bardot necklines (so-called as the style was made famous by Brigitte Bardot, pictured above).

Come see our favourite picks from this season's collections.
