1. The Bikini:

The ultimate swimwear essential. Whether it’s plain, bright or patterned this is defo an item that needs to be packed in your suitcase.  Team with a classic wedge, earrings and kimono for the ultimate beach goddess look.

We love this bright floral piece, perfect with bold lips and piled-on jewels! If you want to add an extra edge to your outfit then we’ve got just the thing. This mesh cover up will be sure to give your swimsuit a whole new look.

3. The Monokini:

With this statement piece you can really make heads turn wherever you go. These come in so many shapes and patterns you’ll be spoilt for choice! Cover it up for Summer evenings by the pool with an embellished kaftan and if you’re going to add some accessories then you really need something simple yet effective like this Lipsy Snake Ring – you want the focus to be on your swimsuit after all!

The lucky winner of our ‘Win a trip to Paris’ competition to celebrate the launch of the Kardashian Kollection at Lipsy was Vicci Murphy!

Vicci, from Ireland whisked her chuffed boyfriend away with her on the trip of a lifetime.

Staying at the super swanky Hotel Platine, they loved their fab room and it’s ultra modern disco shower!

Making sure to take in as much of the sights as possible, first stop for the couple had to be the Eiffel Tower.

Then, a Paris trip wouldn’t be complete with sampling some wine, sitting outside at a super chic French café for a pit stop, whilst people watching and taking in the gorgeous sunshine.

If a trip to the fashion capital of the world wasn’t enough, Vicci also won a Kardashian Kollection at Lipsy wardrobe. Deciding what to wear for her night out in Paris was a hard decision for all the right reasons.

The following day was spent enjoying all of the iconic Paris sights, the Lourvé museum, Notre Dame, padlock bridge, finished off with a boat trip down the River Seine.

Their last night finished the trip off in true Paris style, sipping Champagne and eating delicious food.
