Every week there seems to be a new swimwear or beachwear brand that is making us toy with the idea of dropping a couple hundred pounds on one swimsuit. But flights, accommodation and tapas can be expensive enough, let alone when you factor in the fact that you haven't bought a bikini in two years and don't own any acceptable beach cover-ups. Thankfully, the high street has really upped its swimwear game this summer, meaning you really can get a whole new holiday suitcase of clothes for less than £250. We have put together the perfect capsule packing list so you can spend more time searching for the best Aperol Spritz in town. Scroll below to see our shopping list to get a whole new holiday wardrobe for less than £250 (or, to be precise, £248).
