Our Edit of the Best Celebrity Swimsuit Styles of 2021

From Priyanka Chopra to Ananya Pandey and Katrina Kaif, we show you how to style your swimwear in the most glamorous and on-trend ways.

The best thing that happened in 2021? Travel is back! And that means it's time to bring out our most stylish swimwear and plot and plan our escapes to exotic locales. It goes without saying that we still need to be cautious when it comes to Covid 19 and follow the correct protocol, but after almost two years of staying home, we can now plan to visit our favourite poolside and beach destinations again, both in India and internationally.

It is not just us, but Bollywood celebrities who have been bitten by the travel bug. As actors jet off to soak up the sun, they often give us a sneak-peak into their holiday environs, kitted out in the most stylish and on-trend swimwear. So, if you are planning a getaway soon, or want to start shopping for your New Year travels, we are here to be your style guides. We combed the feeds of some of the most fashionable celebrities we know to create an edit of the best swimsuit styles of 2021.
