Is it too early to be entertaining the idea of swimsuit shopping? Definitely not!
It's only the third week of September but it's as though spring lasted for just one week (in Jo'burg that is) and we’re already slap bang in the middle of summer.
Scorching hot days make for the best poolside or beachfront chilling and are a great excuse to show off your inspired swimsuit collection. YAAAAS!
And yes, your body is already a beach body. Just take it to the beach. In a hot bikini or one piece.
These are the six hottest swimsuit styles you’re gonna be wearing this season:
