Bali-born label Faithfull The Brand is going to inspire us all to go matchy-matchy with our swimwear and accessories this summer. It’s the new styling trick to try out on the beach…

If you’re lucky enough to have a holiday already in the diary, or you’re not averse to booking a last minute trip, then listen up: there’s a new way to accessorise your swimwear this summer, and it’s inspired by Bali-born label Faithfull The Brand

The folks behind the cult label created the sellout yellow-jumpsuit-of-dreams that basically took over Instagram earlier this year (it has since been restocked, FYI), and they’re also responsible for making immediate ‘it’ swimwear. 

However, it’s the way some of the most stylish women on social have been styling said swimwear that has gained attention from our fashion team: it’s all about matching your bikini or one-piece to your accessories. 

That’s right: matchy-matchy accessories in the same print or hue is the way to get dressed for the beach. 

And, while Faithfull The Brand has already curated ready-made accessory sets, you can also DIY the trend with our beach outfit options below.

  • Faithfull The Brand Aira floral print triangle bikini

    The retro print is so good we don’t blame anyone for wanting the matching bucket hat, too. 

    Team with pearly jewels like influencer Mary Jean for the ideal beach combo.

    £147.01, Faithfull The Brand

  • Faithfull The Brand checked cotton pareo, tote and hair tie set

    Lime green is having a serious moment this summer, and it shows no sign of slowing down anytime soon. 

    Embrace the zest like influencer Lucy Williams with FTB’s cool check sarong, tote and scrunchie set. 

    £217.76, Faithfull The Brand 

  • Loeffler Randall leopard print shell hat

    Another day, another bucket hat. There’s no hiding from them this summer and we don’t want to seen as they not only look sleek; they also hide unwashed beach hair. 

    £50, Loeffler Randall

  • Bershka leopard print bikini top

    Leopard print is a go-to at anytime of year and for summer it’s of course about swim. 

    This style comes in sizes XS to L and the bandeau shape will work wonders for any chest size. 

    £12.99, Bershka

  • Bershka leopard print bikini bottoms

    We’ve already declared our love for the high waist bikini and it continues each year. 

    Wear with the matching top and hat and tie a white line shirt over the top for when you hit the beach bar.

    £12.99, Bershka

  • Ganni seersucker swimsuit
