Trend: Boardwalk

High gloss Vanity Fair’s shots for the HBO series Boardwalk Empire have inspired me to cherry pick the best of vintage-look swimsuits for your sojourns beside the seaside.

Splash Out
Above: Diane von Furstenburg 'Zane' bikini top £133 and bottoms £102. Sold separately - sorry! (In fact the whole Resort collection is mouth-watering). High-waisted bottoms flatter the curvy girl and the bikini top is a supportive yet stylish option whether you need it or not.

Modesty Blaze
Above: If you are 'pale and interesting' and are happy slathering yourself in Factor 20 plus, this £125 Miu Miu one piece is ideal - otherwise I shudder to think of the tan lines!
Cheap and Chic
Above: Coming in at just £32 this Topshop swimsuit is a more affordable option that will have you feeling every bit the Boardwalk girl.

Don't overlook the importance of accessories to complete the look. I found some beautiful Roundhouse sunglasses by Sunettes (exclusive for Liberty £85). Team with the go-to for every London fashion girl, bright red, matt MAC lipstick Russian Red £13.50.
