We have finally entered the much-loved summer months and quite frankly, we couldn’t be happier! Us Brits are done with the pesky rain and want to embrace the sunshine while topping up our tans (slathered in SPF 50 of course!). Whether you are jetting off on a sun-drenched break or chilling in your back garden catching some rays, there is a swimsuit for everyone. From tropical-esque palm-tree prints to classic white styles – we have a swimsuit for all tastes. And as well as being chic and bang on trend, the one-piece can cover a multitude of sins and give you a sleek silhouette, should that be what you're looking for. So what are you waiting for? Click through the gallery to see the best swimsuits money can buy…

First up, we couldn’t help but fall a little bit in love with this palm-printed bad boy from Jane Norman. Not only does it feature the print which is synonymous with that laid-back island life, but it has a sexy straps at the back that would be great at showing off your tan to its best effect.

£25, Jane Norman

striped swimsuit iris and lilly

Who could resist this striped creation? We love the smart racer-back shape, the sexy high leg and the punchy red and white stripes – which give us total deckchair vibes. Add your Rayban aviators and maybe some chic tan sandals for ultimate summer style.

£21.00 Iris & Lilly @ Amazon

blue swimsuit jets

Sometimes you just need something super simple when it comes to swimwear – less is more after all. We are in love with this double strap one-piece from Jets – a super chic Australian brand. This swimsuit comes in ten punchy shades – and our favourite has to be this sumptuous turquoise blue.

£94.95, Jets

polka dot swimsuit

This fabulous one-piece totally reminds us of something that Julia Robert's character of Vivienne in Pretty Woman would wear if she was to attend a pool party at the Beverley Wiltshire Hotel. The polka-dot print is so cute and we love the built-in belt.

£70, NYOS

neon yellow swimsuit

Neon is what summer is all about and it's easy to see why this one-piece is called the Lauren Keylime – we are loving its zesty hues. It comes with contrasting super thin straps for a sleek look which is perfect for chilling by the pool in style. If lime isn't your bag, it also comes in Shore Blue, and Sea Green.

£244, Flagpole NYC

black swimsuit curvissa

A simple black swimsuit is probably one of the most flattering items ever – and the most chic. We are loving this all-in-one from Curvissa – particularly as it comes with contrasting waist detail and snazzy straps.

£56, Curvissa

figleaves colour block swimsuit

If you are a gal with killer curves, you may need some extra support. This is where Figleaves comes in – the brand is renowned for its incredibly-cut swimwear and this colour block number is no exception. It has cleverly hidden underwire and a super-flattering halter neck design, giving you the uplift you’ve always dreamed of.

£58, Figleaves

pili and kiki white swimsuit

Heading off to a pool party? Hold the champagne spray! The Eden one-shoulder one-piece by luxury brand Pili & Kiki is the ideal swimsuit to take you from the beach to the bar. We love the asymmetrical neckline and cut-out detail. Add gold sandals for the ultimate in St. Tropez style…

£190, Pili & Kiki

primark tropical swimsuit

Feeling hot hot hot? Pop into Primark! Its swimwear collection is insanely good this season – and we have our eyes on this coral-trimmed one piece which hits numerous trends in one go; pom poms, Honolulu-style prints and a ruffled neckline. And for £12, you just can't go wrong.

£12, Primark

pili and kiki black swimsuit

A simple black swimsuit can be worn holiday after holiday and will never date. Plus, it literally streamlines your frame in seconds, meaning there's no-need for a pre-holiday diet - not that you need to go on one anyway. This mesh-zipped style gives a modern twist to an otherwise classic design.

£180, Pili & Kiki

seaspray ombre bandeau swimsuit

If you want to show off your décolletage and hate the idea of pesky tan lines – you will love this one-piece from Seaspray. We love the classic bandeau shape and the delicate ruching detail.

£78, Seaspray

karen millen leopard print swimsuit

Leopard print just screams high-octane style and this Karen Millen one piece brings all the glamorous feels. The plunge lace detail features soft cups with boned sides for extra support and the cords are trimmed with fancy gold detail. The self-stretch lining means it retains its shape even after diving straight into the pool.

£ 75, Karen Millen

boux avenue plunge swimsuit

For ladies who are bit daring - now is the time to head straight to Boux Avenue. The Saba floral swimsuit features the sweetest flower detail printed on to a lovely blush material that could be doubled up as a body suit and worn with denim shorts.

£25, Boux Avenue

guess denim swimsuit

Fashion-forward ladies who want something a little bit different will love this monokini from Guess. It looks like it could be made from your favourite jeans but it’s actually crafted from the softest viscose. With tie fasting and a sexy halter top, you will be the best-dressed at the pool!

£59, Guess

black topshop swimsuit

Remember when Holly Willoughby wore that ribbed swimsuit from Hunza G? Well this Topshop bargain is a dead ringer. Not only does it have the same soft-figure-hugging material, it also boasts the same super sexy cut. And it costs just £19 – a whopping £116 less. More money for all those pool-side cocktails…

£19, Topshop

Dorina swimsuit

Sometimes you just want a swimsuit which will hold nip you in all the right places – but you still want it to still look super trendy. Dorina's nautical delight is cut with a V neckline and the stripes will instantly make you look slimmer.

£28, Dorina @ ASOS

Sporty gals will be obsessed with this fabulous suit from Nike Swim. Made is a punchy sky blue, it features the brand's iconic logo in bright pink and has flattering racer– back straps which are ideal for exercise.
