What better way to spend an afternoon indoors, than to browse through beach villas and shop for new bikinis? If the fun never ends, click on these websites and see if anything catches your eye.
Bold colours, neoprene and geometric — the three words that come to mind when someone mentions the hottest brand in swimwear right now, Triangl. The Australian brand is founded by a couple named Craig Ellis and Erin Deering, after Deering’s frustration at how difficult it was to find affordable bikinis with great quality. So impressive are her creations, that it has a huge celeb following which includes the likes of Beyonce and Kendall Jenner.

Ideal beach destination: Greece, for the perfect contrast of vibrance against white washed walls and clear blue skies.
