TSSB Edit: Top 15 ASOS Swimsuits

By Sarah Redman & Georgia Thomas

This is TSSB’s first colab post so we hope you like it…

When summertime comes around most 20-somethings we know reach for the bikini – it’s simple, cheap, easy and you can even mix and match. So we thought we would step outside the box and dedicate a post to the cosy. No longer the black or blue sensible suit you used to wear when you learnt to swim; ASOS‘s collection offers something for everyone – different sizes, shapes and styles.

We have put together a collection of our favourite fifteen swimsuits on ASOS.com – trust us it took a while to narrow it down!

These are in no particular order – although we may have commented on those that are our personal favourites

1) American Apparel Tricot Maillot One Piece Swimsuit (RRP £31.00 – Sale price £22.00)

American Apparel metalic £22.00

 

First up is this American Apparel number – its simple and elegant, yet still has that ‘something a little different’ element thanks to the metallic colour and the plunging v.

2) ASOS Cross Front Wrap Halter Swimsuit (RRP £28.00)

ASOS cross front wrap £28.00

This one basically just looks like a bikini – but not split – just an intriguing wrap around in a fantastic pool side turquoise.

3) ASOS Deep Plunge Ruffle Swimsuit (RRP £35.00 – Sale price £25.00)

Asos deep plunge ruffle £35

A personal favourite of Sarah (R)

The coral colour compliments a tan and this cosy covers you up whilst the plunging v is eye catching and the ruffles are not just fabulous but could hid a multitude of sins.

4) ASOS Kaleidoscope Floral Lattice Cut Out Triangle Swimsuit (RRP £30.00)

ASOS Kaleidoscope £30

Weird tan line warning!

So much love for the pattern on this one and to be honest for the cut out too. It’s so quirky yet still girly and cute – although we think it might be struggle to put on if you’re not concentrating!

5) ASOS Leaf Print Cut Out Bandeau Swimsuit (RRP £32.00)

ASOS Leaf print cut out £32

A personal favourite of Georgia (T)

We are loving a strong print this summer and this tropical leaf print is on point. Combined with the ever popular cut out this is simple suit with a beach feel.

6) ASOS Monochrome Feather Print Swimsuit (RRP £32.00 – Sale price £22.00)

ASOS Monochrome Feather £32

A simpler style with a bolder cut out, this monochrome feather print cosy remains classic and stylish in an unobtrusive way.

7) ASOS Sunflower Cut Out Cupped Swimsuit (RRP £35.00 – Sale price £21.00)

ASOS Sunflower cut out £35

Another cut out – clearly the only way to go with your cosy. This one has a colourful floral print and can be worn with or without straps.

8) Bikini Lab Fringe Ferdinand Monokini Swimsuit (RRP £52.00)

Bikini lab fringed £52

A personal favourite from both of us

It’s safe to say we love the fringing on this particular cosy. The relaxed bohemian style is fun yet elegant and would also look great with shorts not just round the pool.

9) Juicy Couture Wildcat Print Zip Front Swimsuit (RRP £105.00)

Juicy couture aniamal £105

One for the animal lovers out there – this partially printed suit has a classic shape but still has lots of character.

10) Lolli Cake Walk Cut Out Bow One Piece Swimsuit (RRP £115.00)

Lolli Cake black bow £115

A personal favourite of Georgia (T) & Weird tan line warning!

Yeah it’s going to look weird when you take this off and just have a patch of tan on your stomach – but it’s super cute on and really who’s going to see?! It may be pain old black which seems to be steered away from when choosing a one piece but the bow leaves this cosy with a youthful feel.

11) New Look Twist Detail Swimsuit (RRP £19.99)

New Look black simple £19.99

Simple, elegant and classic. You can’t really go wrong with this one – its classic shape is also supportive and adjustable thanks to the halter-neck.

12) Oasis Digital Rose Print Swimsuit (RRP £45.00)

Oasis floral £45

A personal favourite of Sarah (R)

We think this is an awesome floral print on this structured Oasis suit. This classic style still manages to look modern and fresh with this pattern. A great cover up for someone with a classic style.

13) Panache D-G Chloe Pippa Bandeau Swimsuit (RRP £46.00 – Sale price £19.50)

Panache cute bandau £19.50

This suit is classic and demure, the cute pattern keeps the design playful whilst the coral band around the bandeau neck line gives this cosy a grown up feel.

14) Tommy Hilfiger Palm Springs Scuba Swimsuit (RRP £85.00 – Sale price £42.00)

Tommy Hilfiger scuba £85

Now this one is a little different, the look is more of an adjusted scuba suit but there is something for everyone on ASOS. The bright summer colours are eye catching and fun – and the chances someone else has the same suit as you?

15) We Are Handsome The Pantera Scoop One Piece Swimsuit (RRP £213.00 – Sale price £137.00)

We Are Handsome big cat £213

A personal favourite of Georgia (T)

Finally the boldest one on the list. This suit is quirky and completely different, plus everyone loves a big cat with beaut eyes!

Tartan dress: my new favourite print

By Sarah Hugill

For a dress that is versatile, suitable for a night out on the town with a pair of Chelsea boots or for a more casual look with a pair of converses this dress from Miss Guided is perfect. I wore a statement silver necklace to add to the look and found the dress easy to wear with a skater dress style flattering for most body shapes!

Personally I consider this an area of fashion, much like I consider fashion to be art. (You can make your own mind up on that debate)

But whilst you do, take a look at this reupholstered stool from Cotton Candy Designs

Priced at £30.00 with a cute stamp design… #TheSarahsLove

Spring / Summer 2013 Style Guide: Boden – Great British Style

By Sarah Redman

Boden - Great British Style

Boden – Great British Style

Loving this brand at the moment, having grown up with my mum wearing it most summers in France, I feel at home in its comfortable chic style.

Having accepted a few hammy downs recently (student budget) – personally i prefer to call it ‘vintage clothes my mum bought when she had more money than i probably ever will’… has a bit more of a ring to it don’t you think? I was happy to see this Jersey Maxi Dress (WH504) – £89.00 in their spring /summer range for 2013.

This style is so easy to wear and has been used for a similar dress a few seasons ago (vintage mum dress), last summer I wore with gold  sandals and a floppy hat, never belting as it is too much on the print – however with this SS13 number, there are two plain versions  which would work perfectly with a thin metallic belt, like this ASOS Metallic Aztec Metal Keeper Super Skinny Waist Belt – £6.00. Hey – you’ll have already bought the dress give your purse strings a break… besides we all love ASOS and aztec metal print is just a bonus!

Or if you are going all out Boden I suggest the following to mix and match as you wish:

  • Floppy Felt Hat (AD126) – £39.00
  • Metal Disk Necklace (AK212) – £29.00
  • Peep Toe Espadrilles (AR576) – £59.00 to £79.00
  • Chelsea Bag (AM170) – £149.00
  • Cat’s Eye Shades (AV063) – £49.00
  • Suede Demi-Wedges (AR574) – £69.00 (Please chose the bright blue if teeming with the black maxi – it’s summer – you can’t be head to toe black, not even in the evenings! Show a little skin or get your brights on)
  • Boho Boots (AZ162) – £110.00 (To be worn in England – where summer is never really summer) #TheSarahsLove #WeWant

Boden always have great summer essentials, for when it’s too hot to think of something ‘super awesome, totally chic, fashionable and now’ to wear – because seriously who has the time? I will be sporting a few pieces from them in my summer wardrobe for those days when i just feel like minimal accessorizing.

One more added bonus to Boden – If you are a first time buyer they will send you a FREE scarf worth £19.

My thoughts: It would be rude not to buy really…
