For a refreshed take on your bikini top look no further than The Crop. There’s an inherent athleticism in this style that lends itself to every kind of summer fun. Carry that thought over when considering colour and print and go bold with designs from Seafolly, an Australian favourite new to David Jones this season.
Leaning into its sporty sensibility, thicker straps provide an added level of support, as well as lengthening your body in all the right ways. To keep with the ’90s moment, block colours make a statement. Perfected in their superior technical performance fabrics, Bondi Born’s terracotta ensures timelessness for seasons to come.
