We may not have had a white Christmas, but it sure looks like it’s going to be a white new year – and we’re not just talking about snow! Let your mind wander to the white sandy beaches where we’re seeing as an ever increasing number of celebs in white swimwear as they jet off in search of some winter sun. If anything can persuade us to get back on the straight and narrow after an indulgent festive season it’s the sexy swimwear shots of Helen Flanagan, Michelle Keegan, Rita Ora and Millie Mackintosh on the beach.
L-R: Helen Flanagan, Michelle Keegan, Rita Ora, Millie Mackintosh
You don’t have to splash to look like a star. We’ve searched the sales to find the 5 best items of swimwear out there. So put down the left-over mince pies, push on with the stomach crunches and prepare to bare in a teeny weeny white bikini just like Helen Flanagan.
As seen in the jungle on I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! Helen’s Vix Bia bikini is somewhat of a celebrity favourite having been spotted on the likes of Kelly Brook and the Made in Chelsea girls. Right now the bikini top can be found reduced from £90 – £45 at Net-A-Porter.
If a one-piece swimsuit is more your style, boy are you in luck! No longer seen as the fuddy- duddy older sister to the more daring two-piece, a one-piece swimsuit has gained popularity over the past few seasons. This is not only thanks to the style being more forgiving on anyone without Ennis abs, but also because of the addition of fashion forward cut-outs, embellishments, mesh panels and even peplums.
Rita Ora is just one of the stars who we’ve spotted splashing around in a white one piece of late. If you’re wondering where you can get hold of the exact same swimsuit with key hole detail then listen up! It’s by Seventh Wonderland and is currently on sale at ASOS, reduced from £223 – £89.
Also at ASOS is a gorgeous cupped swimsuit with laser-cut peplum detail, reduced from £35 – £24.50. Or why not take the plunge with the Lands’ End Regatta v-neck swimsuit, reduced from £80 – £60 at Debenhams. And last but by no means least, our final sale best buy is the asymmetric number with mush cut out by Anne Cole at Figleaves. It’s reduced right down from £98 – £29.40.
L-R: Vix, Seventh Wonderland, ASOS, Lands’ End at Debenhams, Anne Cole at Figleaves)

Who is your ultimate beach babe?
The weather is hotting up and we can finally start thinking about casting our sweaters aside in favour of swimwear, and when it comes to bikinis no one looks better on the beach than Ms. Brook…
Kelly Brook, who has designed her own retro-style swimwear range for New Look, knows a thing or two about beachwear. She understands what style flatters her enviable curves and sticks to it.
A fan of swimwear labels Eda and Vix, both of which are stocked at beachwear boutique, Biondi Couture in London and at Figleaves online, she doesn’t think twice about splashing out on several of the same bikinis – each in different print or colourway.
Seeking sartorial inspiration from Kelly, we’ve shopped the swimwear sales for the best bikinis with teeny-weeny prices – you won’t be afraid to come out of the water wearing one of these beautiful bikinis…
Eda blue and white Miami bikini, as worn by Kelly Brooke, available at Biondi Couture: top £99, bottoms reduced from £55 – £30.
Eda green Esmeralda bikini, available at ASOS: top was £99 now £49, bottoms reduced from £65 – £32.50.
Debenhams black and white polka dot bikini: top was £20 now £16, bottoms reduced from £12 – £9.60.
French Connection Naomi Hobo bandeau bikini, available at Figleaves: top was £25 now £20, bottoms reduced from £20 – £16.
Very.co.uk orange Resort bikini: top £10, bottoms £8 – selected swimwear styles 3 for 2, so why not buy it in 3 different colours?
With only a week to go until Valentine’s Day we thought we’d give you boys a little push in the right direction. Our gift guide is not only designed to save you time and money… buy one of these treats for the one you love and she’ll love you forever!
