Poolside glamour.

If you take that phrase literally you usually end up with sultry swimwear worn with luxurious jewels, high heels, lipstick and cascades of vintage-style waves. In other words, all the things you don’t want to get wet. But practicality be damned: sometimes, editorially at least, it’s the best way to present a selection of bikinis and draw the viewer in.

In Harper’s Bazaar UK’s January 2011 issue Rosie Huntington-Whiteley ticks all the poolside glamour boxes on what we can only assume is a resort holiday of sorts. Informing your 2012 swimwear choices are block coloured pieces with details like strapping and cutaways.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for Fashionising.com, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
