15 Supermarket Beachwear Looks Under £20, Because What's Not To Love About A Jolly Big Hat
When it comes to going on holiday or just visiting one of the many beaches the UK has to offer, I'm prone to stocking up on enough swimwear to rival the Love Island contestants. (And I'm sure I'm not alone.) But beachwear? I'm stumped. Yet it's almost a necessity as you're guaranteed to get cold at some point and wish you'd brought more than a towel to cover up. That's where affordable supermarket beachwear comes in.
Cheap enough to not worry too much if you get it ruined but not so cheap that any sense of style ends up being sacrificed, the beach-appropriate designs offered by the likes of Tesco, Asda, and Sainsbury's are super easy to style.
There's the obvious cover-ups in the form of kaftans, kimonos, and cute summer dresses. But supermarkets are also offering a dose of nostalgia that'll transport you straight back to your teenage holidays. Think sarong skirts (remember those?) and printed shorts.
Once you've got the clothes side sorted, you'll obviously need to buy a few accessories next. Whether it's a huge straw hat, a beach bag big enough for all your essentials, or cheap as chips flip flops, your local supermarket has it all.
Unfortunately, while you can no longer buy Tesco's F&F range online, it is still available in stores across the UK, so dig in. Here are the best beachwear bits on offer right now.
