11 swimwear outfits to wear to the garden this week

It looks set to be a scorcher this week, and even if there's nowhere to go, there's no reason we can't look the part

In another true case of the universe laughing at us, it looks like it's going to be really nice weather this week. Dry, sunny and warm weather will abound right through until the weekend, and while there may not be many events on the agenda, you can still enjoy the sunshine safe at home.

If you're pining after the summer holiday that was not to be this year, this week is the time to whip out the swimsuits, don the shades and sit in your back garden to soak it all up (with SPF, obviously). Getting all dressed up has definitely taken on a new meaning since the beginning of the pandemic, and we're ready to extend that to our swimwear/ beachwear options too.

Luckily, there are loads of swimwear pieces out there to help us live out our summer fantasies to the fullest. And look on the bright side — cheap, homemade cocktails and no chance of someone stealing your sun lounger.
