Helen Skelton's vibrant pink tie-dye bikini paired with bold statement sunglasses was an incredible look for her day of paddle boarding in Ibiza - and it's got us ready to shop bright poolside pieces for this summer. 

Shopping for a sun-soaked getaway can be tricky at times. From ensuring you've perfected your holiday wardrobe to finding comfy swimwear that suits you, all while trying to stick to 2024 swimwear trends, it can feel like quite the task. 

Shop Summer Tie-Dye

Picking the right swimwear for your body type is key to feeling confident by the pool or at the beach - but incorporating bold patterns and striking colours is a huge summer trend we'll be keeping in mind, too.

Helen did just the same as she posed on a paddle board during a trip to Ibiza last year, taking to Instagram to share the snap of her gorgeous sea day look.

The Countryfile host can be seen perched cross legged on the board, sporting a bold pink two-piece swimsuit with a triangle bikini top and matching bottoms, with a contrasting white tie-dye pattern. 

Keeping the look minimalistic for her dose of vitamin sea, Helen kept her hair in a relaxed updo, securing her highlighted blonde locks in an undone topknot as she floated on the crystal blue water. 

With a cocktail in hand, the mother-of-three kept her eyes protected in a pair of her best sunglasses, opting for a timeless pair of oversized all-black frames. 

There are various ways to incorporate touches of tie-dye into your poolside or beach day outfits, whether than be with swimwear itself or colourful accessories. And don't worry if bikinis aren't your top choice, as there's plenty of designs and styles to choose from. 

In another snapshot from the same trip, Helen proved that a simple straw sunhat and a crisp white coverup are two essentials for a day spent in the sun, teaming the simplistic pieces with a leopard print bikini and chunky brown sandals.

If you're keen to build a basic, wearable and versatile capsule wardrobe for your holidays - these are two pieces that you can't go wrong with, thanks to their ability to add a chic yet laid back edge to any vacation look.
