It's only the third day of January and already Emily Ratajkowski's 2023 is shaping up to be super stylish. Celebrating the New Year in true supermodel form, the 31-year-old raised the party dressing stakes in an achingly covetable shimmery chainmail dress by Clio Peppiatt, but another day, another killer EmRata look, and her latest ensembles are making us pine for sunnier climes.

Whether you're suffering from the January blues or not, a minibreak feels very necessary after the frenetic energy of the festive period. And the My Body author is 100% on the case. Emily has been soaking up the sun in the Cayman Islands with a group of pals, and we couldn't be more envious if we tried.

A hearty boost of vitamin D feels long overdue, and yet it was Emily's bikini collection that truly had us in a fix.

In a recent post shared on Instagram with her 29.7m followers, the podcast host brought her swimwear A-game. Sporting a range of different styles, Emily proved that versatility is key.

One underwired style in a vivid neon pink shade featured a colourful abstract print and thong-style bikini bottoms, and not for the first time the supermodel showcased her penchant for a striking red, pairing a classic triangle bikini – courtesy of her own swimwear brand Inamorata – with sage green rubber slides.

Also on her swimwear agenda was a vibrant geometric print comprised of hot pink, luminous yellow, bright orange and a deep indigo. Though we reckon it's safe to say that Emily would stand out from the crowd regardless of what she packed in her suitcase.

Time to give our bikini collection a colourful update ahead of our next getaway… 

What is the story behind Emily Ratajkowski's swimwear label Inamorata?

Inamorata was set up back in 2017 by Emily and her close pal Kat Mendenhall. The duo founded the brand with the intention of creating "a collection rife with easy, body-conscious essentials for the unexpected nature of the city".

Southern California beach culture contributed strongly to the vision behind Inamorata, taking the form of flattering, often slightly daring, swimwear designs.

"It is that beach attitude taken to the city," Emily said, explaining the influences. "It's not about the body – it's about the confidence, it's about self-love."
