The price: £15, originally £35
Why we want it: We love a beautiful designer swimsuit, but it's difficult to come to terms with shelling out hundreds of pounds for something that's going to be quickly ruined by sun, sand, salty water, chlorine, greasy sun creams, and spilt cocktails. Luckily, the high street has upped its game considerably in the last few years when it comes to statement-making swimwear. This River Island one-piece has a great retro feel, with detachable straps that make it great for sunbathing (provided you don't mind a pale midriff). It looks like it cost four or five times its actual price. With the pretty gingham print and bra cups for support and shape, we'd be tempted to tuck this baby into a pair of high-waisted shorts or a lacy pencil skirt and wear it out in the evening, too!
