For the woman who waits all year for Summer, and stays hours past everyone else at the beach, we have this: The ultimate gift guide for the beach babe. Here you'll find everything she's been lusting over all year, from the swimwear to the accessories and more.

If ever you needed an excuse to drop some cash on a brand new wardrobe, starting Summer is definitely one. What better reason to invest in new swim from Zimmermann, check-out Lara Bingle's Cotton On Body collection and start hunting for the perfect party season little black dress? Nope, we can't think of one either. So keep those credit cards at an arm's length, and step into our edit of the must-have Summer buys this month.
And who better to understand the need for a beach getaway in December than a native Australian? But when it came to any difference between the chic girls of NYC and the laid-back girls of Sydney, she demurred. "I believe that [the NYC customer] is the same girl that we sell to in Sydney. I really don’t think they’re any different. They dress the same, they like the same things, they are in completely different countries, but they’re just very much into the same thing." And that means the sweetly feminine designs that Zimmermann is known for!
And if you think that the Spring and Resort pieces you're wearing now are only for warm weather, think again and take a styling tip from the recent shoppers in the new flagship. "I’m watching girls try on little strapless dresses and wearing tights and black boots and a coat over it. . . . Because, here in New York, everywhere you go, you’re boiling hot once you’re inside!" the designer said. Visit the Zimmermann boutique if you are in NYC at 55 Mercer St.

Pale pink: it's one of fashion's most polarising shades. In camp pro-pink, lovers champion the colour's versatility as a sweet neutral shade, while others appreciate that just 'cause it's pink, doesn't mean it needs to be girly (we've got an ACNE look in the gallery to prove that). But in camp anti, they argue the shade is for kids only. Either way, there's no denying that pale pink is the sugary shade of Spring.

Pool attire can often consist of constrictive and well, unflattering one pieces.

We did, that's who. Click through because we've rounded up 10 of the prettiest, form-fitting and feel-good swimwear this side of the starting block.
