Go Pin-Up At The Poolside

Retro Bikinis

My style in summer, as soon as it gets hot, goes immediately retro and pin-up inspired. I find that retro prints and cuts suit my body shape, and never go out of style unlike the seasonal trends that come and go. This is particularly true when it comes to my beachwear. When London-based beachwear brand Kinky Octopus sent me a very generous package of their vintage look pieces ready for my holiday, I couldn’t help but snap them with my old trunks and cases, and wanted to share them with you guys! Better yet, Kinky Octopus are giving away a bikini of your choice to one lucky reader of my blog, so stay tuned to the end for more info.

Unlike some expensive beachwear brands, Kinky Octopus’ bikinis range from between £20-£30 for a set, and then there’s the accessories; flip flops, cover-ups etc, with a massively wide range of prints and cuts to suit every body shape. I was sent three gorgeous patterns, with mix and match bottoms, so you never get tired of your pin-up combo by the pool. My three tops came in polka dot (a classic), tiger print (which I adore), and tropical print, which happens to be massive this year, as well as a great retro staple. It’s safe to say they all have a great pin-up vibe that I adore! Kinky Octopus’ Ebay store is the first place to hit up if you’re not London based, and their full range of products is up there. If you’d rather try on your pieces first though, they have a super cute store in Soho so you can try on your desired pieces in person. If you’ve got a holiday booked for the end of summer, or are planning in advance for some winter sun, I’d recommend checking them out!
