Swimwear that makes a statement; it’s a non-negotiable for 2023. Whilst we’re here for all the swimwear trends; from barely there sexy swimwear, to the functional and form-fitting swimsuit and the classic bikini set, this year’s leading vacation en-vogue just has to be the strappy style.

A little extra strap detailing, no matter its form, upgrades any beachwear or poolside ensemble for a luxe yet fun look, fit for all your summer plans. So get ready for Bora Bora (or even Brighton) beach with a strappy bikini and strappy swimsuit ensemble to suit you, whether you’re savvy to the strappy style, or the newest of novices!


The strappy bikini - a treat for the eyes that’ll never date, it’s a piece that comes in all shapes and sizes. So whether it’s just a tad extra strappy detailing you’re seeking, or full string-all-over vibes, check out the edit and find what works for you…

Eye-popping patterns are popular this summer, and for good reason! Take the Grenada print triangle bikini set to start with. Super summery is the vibe, and with a contrast-colour crossover tie as your ‘strappy’ detail, it keeps things fun yet simple. Exactly what you want from your hols, are we right? Team with the Chiffon frill kaftan and let the sheer fabric show off your strappy set to perfection!

Want patterning plus a little extra punch? We love the Jamaica strappy bikini top’s effervescent green, which looks incredible with an extra underband strap, tie-up on the torso and crossover halter strapping. Yep, this one pulls out all the stops - and we think it looks just as sensational as part of your rum-sipping party outfit as it does with the matching Jamaica strappy bikini briefs; so bag it, buy it and go work it.

For our minimalist chicas, we love both the Paros cut out bikini set and the beautiful Bora Bora strappy triangle bikini. Block, bright colours (pink, purple or yellow, that is) with clean lines and slick strapping mean these two look simply sensational with layered jewellery, your best sunglasses and that sunny out-of-office outlook that we all know and love!


As always, for our sisters who appreciate the streamlined sophistication of a Boux one-piece, we have the chicest strappy swimsuits, at your service.

Dive into deep blue waters with the Nusa strappy swimsuit in gorgeous aqua; the back of this beaut is the ultimate strappy sensation, as well as ruched sides and a high-leg cut, spelling slick style that slays year after year. Sleek hair, a bright lippy and the Gold hex sunglasses are all you need to complete this classy look, ideal for all the poolside poses!

Keen to take the ‘derrière’ details up a notch? The Majorca strappy back swimsuit is an absolute corker that’ll show off that back day work at the gym, whilst a black colourway brings a polished, classic feel to pooltime proceedings!

Last but not least, we’re going girly. The Positano ring cut out swimsuit is bound to make you feel beautiful, with flattering cutouts and a high-neck halter that add all the strappy sexiness, whilst pale pink and stunning shiny fabric makes this a strappy swimsuit that's a little bit fun too! Add the Dobby spot sheer sarong for a top top-and-skirt-esque combo, whether you’re covering up for a pre-pool brekkie or a post-beach fiesta.
