Bikini Inspiration from the High Street

The sun is now officially out, so shake the dust off your bikinis and hit those beaches… or more appropriately, those pretty parks if you’re a city chick.

Principles by Ben De Lisi

If you’re preparing for your holidays abroad or just looking for something to wear while you sunbathe in the privacy of your own gardens, check out Principles by Ben De Lisi’s new swimwear range at Debenhams. The high street designer’s range has been having a bit of a revamp and they’ve finally just launched a cute new beach line which includes gorgeous bikinis, kaftans, and cute beach-perfect wrap dresses. Think bold prints, bandeaus and halter necks which are so versatile that they can easily be dressed up or down. Check out the full range at Debenhams online.
