Summer Fashion: Swimwear For Redheads

With summer just around the corner, things are hotting up – so it’s time to tackle the season’s biggest accessory: swimsuits.

A redhead’s luscious locks are just part of what makes swimwear so spectacular on their bombshell appearance. And finding the right one to suit your ginger hair colour and pale skin tone is easier than you might think.

Now I know what you’re thinking: what colour doesn’t look amazing on a redhead?! And your astonishment is valid, as gingers look great in anything, we agree; but there are colours that enhance the red hair in better ways than others.

So take a peek at some swimwear options and find out what suit could make you feel more beautiful than you already are.



Green is ALWAYS a must-have in a ginger’s wardrobe for every season. Summer is no exception. This mint green bikini will not only compliment your hair, but your fair skin, too. It’s also got the high-waisted aspect to it, which is on trend right now.

Coral is another great colour for gingers. It’s pinky tone doesn’t wash redheads out as much as more orangey shades do. Orange sometimes clashes with red hair, so coral is a warm substitute.

Some people think yellow washes out redheads because of the fairness of their skin, but I say WRONG.

Yellow is a great colour to really brighten up red hair and show it off. It compliments vibrant ginger hair because it is equally as vibrant. This patterned bikini from ASOS really shows off the yellow with the black accents.

Any purple looks great on redheads, but this burgundy swimsuit will really compliment fair skin while simultaneously bringing out the deeper, richer tones found in red hair.
