The 1970s trend doesn't need to be all denim, suede and cheesecloth. As demonstrated here by top model Thalia, there's a whole world of slick, Studio 54-style looks to explore.

Racer-back necklines, figure-skimming silhouettes; think Jerry Hall or Bianca Jagger in their heyday, wearing Halston.

Dear Stylemma,

My husband and I are going on holiday with a few friends this summer, and, having survived on the same collection of bikinis for the last few years, I feel I need to get something new. Specifically, I'm looking for a bikini with high-waisted briefs - I'm not ready to go for the full one-piece yet, but the figure isn't what it was.

Our suggestion would be pick up one, or several, plain, black, high-waisted bikini bottoms - River Island has several pairs around the €20 mark; Monsoon has a pair for €23.50 in a flattering, ridged fabric. They also have the same style in a tribal print, and the matching top, €29, has a built-in bra cup. Topshop has a lovely bubblegum-pink, high-waisted bikini; the briefs are €17, and the top is €31. Debenhams has a range of high-waisted bikini bottoms in polka dots, snakeskin print, or jungle print, while their Beach Collection offers a pair of classic black bikini bottoms for €24.
