Celeb style: summer swimwear wishlist

If you’re looking to really make a splash this summer, perhaps you’d like to join the celebrities by wearing Melissa Odabash designer swimwear. The former swimsuit model definitely knows her stuff when it comes to creating gorgeous pieces, so I thought I’d put together a little wishlist! Everything shown is available on SimplyBeach.com! 

I’ve never purchased designer swimwear, but if you’ve got an exciting holiday booked and want to look your best, then definitely check out my favourite pieces below. (If you end up buying some, please do tag me in pictures – I’d love to see!) As you’ll see, I’m more of a fan of plain swimwear, with detailing, but there’s an amazing selection of geometric patterns, palm prints and gorgeous tie-dye style pieces available too!

Costa Rica – classic with a twist…

This black bikini with ladder detailing is absolutely stunning. (Although I’m not sure about the tan lines!) You can’t go wrong with a bit of black and this look is perfect whether you’re lounging by a pool, drinking cocktails at a beach bar or going wild at a boat party!

I love the fact that it has a high neck – I think that’s so different and would be really flattering on your shoulders. The neck and back are both fastened using ties, which is great for making sure it’s the perfect fit.

You can buy the ‘Ladder Crop Bikini Top’ here for £95 and the ‘Ladder Side Bikini Pant’ here for £95.


Havana – Baywatch babe

I’m pretty sure most girls have secretly always wanted to pop on a red swimsuit and run down the beach in slow-mo! This swimsuit has a bold and vibrant red which will make sure you get noticed by the cute cabana boy!

The gold ring detailing on the straps and in the centre adds a touch of elegance, and it comes with removable pads. Pair with some gold sunglasses and you’re good to go!

You can buy the ‘Havana Ring Detail One Piece’ for £210 here.

Delilah – cover up in style

This maxi dress is the perfect balance of sexy, sassy and classy! I love to throw on a maxi when going for lunch as it keeps me cool but covered!

The tie waist would really eventuate your figure and the palm print is definitely eye catching.

Buy the ‘Delilah Maxi Dress – Calypso’ here for £280.

In love with the pattern but not a fan of maxi dresses? There’s a matching bikini!
Buy the ‘ Cancun Triangle Detail Bikini Top – Calypso’ here for £100 and the ‘Cancun Tie Side Bikini Pant – Calypso’ here for £100.


Daytona Zest – for the sports star

I am crushing so hard on this bikini set. The colour isn’t something I’d usually go for but it looks great on! I love that it provides a little more coverage and the extra support would be so handy for watersports lovers!

Shop the ‘Daytona Crop Top – Zest’ here for £120.
Shop the ‘Daytona Bikini Pant – Zest’ here for £120.
