I’m just gonna put it out there… I’m a bit bikini obsessed. I love a good quality bikini and that includes the perfect little black one piece bikini that should be staple in everyone’s beach wardrobe. I’m going to talk you through your options and what’s best for your bust shape.
Smaller chest: Your traditionally trained stylist with tell you to go for something with ruffles or bows or something that has embellishment on the chest to accentuate your bust. To me that’s fine, but personally I am a much more minimal bikini wearer and I don’t ever wear bows or frills on anything. I would embrace not having a ridiculous amount of cleavage and opt for a super low cut bikini like this one which has padding in it. The beauty of not having out there cleavage means you can get away with this style without looking slutty. Another alternative is a style with a alot of panel detailing on the bust. Super fashion forward.
Bigger Chest: I’d say I fall into this category (being a DD) and although I love the high neck style it actually doesn’t make your chest look smaller or flatter your bust, but in fact tends to make it look bigger with more of a monoboob vibe. Unless that’s the look you’re going for then I’d suggest a low cut style, but not too low cut (because from experience your boobs fall right out!). I love backless styles and if you don’t feel like you need the ‘support’ then give this style a go but there are also plenty of one-piece styles that have the in-built bra with a much more conservative back.
Somewhere in between: You’re the babes that can get away with any of the above. Try a balconette style or one of these sexy front zip bikinis which you can adjust to whatever mood you’re in <insert winky face>
Cami and jeans are I’d say a pretty basic look and it’s easy to achieve this look with the basics already in your wardrobe. The only way I’ve made this look different to almost all of my other cami/ jeans looks is by layering accessories. You’ll notice they’re not even chunky accessories but rather a lot of delicate pieces that make up a look that seems put together but messy at the same time (in a good way). Try experimenting with layering fine necklaces, midi rings and mixing metals & even adding some corded leather.
Khaki olive is just one of those colours we need to have in our wardrobes. If you’re not a huge colour person like me, but want to introduce some into your outfits you need to invest in khaki. It’s subtle and there’s a reason why it’s the base colour of all army and military uniforms. It’s meant to blend in and it’s not an in your face colour or a colour that goes out of style.
I’ve matched it back with black denim because I didn’t want to be too colourful pairing it with blue or navy denim (lol). I do find that when I wear blue denim it’s always with a white, grey or black top. Not intentional, but kind of intentional. I just like investing in staple colours! Sue me
Shot this look with Jocelyn for a style competition with MinkPink. This is my take on their gorgeous camel suede vest. Here, I’ve styled it as a dress, added some thigh high suede boots, added my favourite new sunnies from Oscar Wylee and pulled it together with a vintage belt I bought in Texas.
It’s always fun mixing up the pieces in you wardrobe and styling them for unintended use. Such as this vest, or a shirt as a dress, a scarf as a top, a get creative!

I haven’t injected much colour into my bikini wardrobe much until now. As soon as I saw this little number I knew it’d be perfect for the season and perhaps a gateway into me collecting a few more bikinis that aren’t just black or white! MinkPink is a great brand for picking up some fun pieces to brighten your summer wardrobe and basically your life… So get on it if that’s what you’d like to do!
This look is a dress is disguise – a top and shorts to be precise… oh the magic of separates. I have worn this top with so much else, denim shorts, pants, skirts and the outfit looks completely different every time. The waist tie doesn’t even have to always go around the front. So invest in your separates to stretch out your wardrobe, ladies!
Today playing with black, white fringe textures and injecting a puff of blue. I feel like this bag is very Chiara and suits a certain mood. I originally had a black bag planned (story of my life) but sometimes you don’t wanna be so predictable so let’s all just enjoy ourselves and not take our OOTDs so seriously. Have fun, eh! Loving the Houndstooth inspired top from Donya Vogue as well.
Like wearing a blanket around town, this knitted cape from Forever New is warm & cosy on every level especially layered over another knit. I’ve been wearing jeans almost everyday this winter because it’s too cold for anything else generally because I’m a pussy like trousers or skirts and I don’t think I’d be respected wearing my trackies out. And true to form I’m wearing boots. I don’t think I’d be me without boots on. Viva La Booties!
This season hasn’t been overly colourful for retailers. But who needs it? Black and white is strong, sophisticated and a staple. Build your wardrobe with neutrals and noone will realise you’re outfit repeating.
In this look I’m wearing a knit stripe midi. Often people think that horizontal stripes make you look wider but worn the right way it can actually add alot of length, visually like a ladder it can make you look taller! Hurrah! I put it together with my lace cami and leather jacket to balance looking femme and looking tough.
