Topshop is all over the textured swimsuit trend this season and have a number to choose from. We love the scoop neck crinkle swimsuit – think Baywatch-style cut but in vibrant sunshine yellow. Swimsuit £24: http://www.topshop.com/en/tsuk/product/scoop-neck-crinkle-swimsuit-7487550

High legged with a super cute frill around the waist, the Denise Frill swimsuit is so flattering you’ll want one in every colour. If you only choose one, make it the classic white. Swimsuit £130 https://www.hunzag.com/product-page/denise-frill-swimsuit-in-white
