Make a splash when it’s time to hit the water with this swimwear range from Australian brand Funkita. It's filled to bursting with kitsch and geometric patterns, bright colours and fun separates - everything you need to take your holiday swimwear selection from drab to fab.

How to style one-pieces from Funkita

Ah, the humble swimming costume - there’s a reason its appeal has endured throughout the decades. Flattering, comfortable and just a little more covered-up than a bikini, bathing suits are a must-have for your swimwear arsenal. The ones in this collection are chlorine resistant, meaning the eye-catching colours won’t fade (no matter how many times you cannonball into the pool). Choose a bright design from the Funkita range and team with some cat-eye sunglasses, metallic flip-flops and your favourite beach read for days lazing by the water. When you head out to lunch, all you need to do is to pull on some denim cut-offs and slip into some sandals (if you can bear to put your book down, that is).

Funkita: bold and beautiful bikinis

Assembling your bikini selection can feel a little bit like a puzzle: will this go with that? Funkita encourages you to break all the rules with attention-commanding, clashing colours and look-at-me prints. Take a patterned top from the range and wear it with some high-waisted black bikini bottoms and a head-scarf for some vintage pin-up vibes. A swipe of red lippy is a must (who cares if it’s going to wash off?) Mix and match prints will really make an impression on the sand. When it’s time to cover up and head to the beach bar (yay) pull on a crochet kaftan over your Funkita two-piece, pack your essentials into your bag and slip into some wedge sandals. Keep hair loose for boho vibes, and wear some aviator sunglasses nonchalantly on your head. All this relaxing is such hard work, isn’t it?
