Faced with another month or two of rain and snow, it feels like my only option is distraction: cranking up the heater, turning on a reggae-tinged playlist, and manifesting the beach days that are slowly but surely creeping my way. But while swimsuit shopping is my cure for the gloomy woes of April, I'm oftentimes let down by the simple fact that my favourite swimsuits are always oddly expensive. If I'm saving up for a beach getaway, I don't want to blow the Airbnb budget on a single bikini. But, that's where Zara now comes to the rescue.
Polka dots are a runway trend that translates just as well to swimwear. Paired with a cool sun hat, you'll look glam enough to sit poolside wherever you please.
Are ruffled blouses your thing this spring? Here's the suit to help you translate your look to the beach.
Knot detailing makes this suit perfect for those who skew towards minimalism but still love a little eye-catching detail.
Top and Knotted Bikini Bottoms (£18)
For those who prefer sportier suits, this graphic bikini set looks great on the beach but can just as easily survive a swim.
Top and Tie Bikini Bottoms (£16)
Maybe you've never considered a statement suit before, but there's something amazingly playful about this floral pick.
The underwire detail on this suit make it an especially cool choice. Pair it with denim shorts for a warm-weather barbecue.
Top and Textured Weave Bikini Bottoms (£16)
White swimsuits are always a flattering choice, and this tie-front style is a sure winner.
Top and Bottoms (£18)
This suit has just a touch of preppiness.
Now we're all ready for a day warm enough to spread out a towel and soak up the sun. How about you?
