Is it nearly the end of March already? The weather’s getting hotter by the second and Songkran festivities are on the blazing horizon. Obviously, if we’re going to be splashing about or running off to Hua Hin, we’re going to need to stock up on this year’s freshest beachwear.

Here, we’ve rounded up our favourite pieces that are sure to make you the belle of the beach.
