Your first look at the Natasha Oakley x Nasty Gal collection
Hint: If you keep on reading you might just find a cheeky discount, but you didn't hear it from me.
Chances are, if you have an Instagram account or simply an Internet connection, then you've most likely heard of Natasha Oakley (also known as Tash Oakley). She rocks a standard 2 million followers on the 'gram and is the co-founder of bikini label, Monday Swimwear. Judging from her feed, I'm pretty sure the girl just follows summer around the world and Tash, if you need a travel buddy then seriously, hit me up.
But, the news I'm here to disrupt your average Tuesday with is that Oakley has collaborated with affordable fashion brand Nasty Gal to launch the summer collection of your dreams. No, I'm not talking $80 for a bikini top that will only last you one season. I'm talking affordable yet high-fashion vibes that are actually different from the same swim styles we see every season.
Natasha Oakley x Nasty Gal breakdown:How many items are there? 30 pieces
What's the size range? Size 4–24
What's the price point? $56–$112

When is it available? Now on the Nasty Gal website.
But enough jibber-jabber, let's take a look at some of the absolutely stunning pieces you can shop right now.
I'm not a big one-piece kind of gal but my god, this item speaks to me. It's so sleek and the cut is so flattering I need it in my summer wardrobe now. I also like that it would be super easy to chuck a skirt on the bottom and voila, you've got a killer bodysuit.
Fair warning, I'm pretty sure that if you wear this dress, people will confuse you with a mermaid. Just letting you know.
I don't care who you are and what your actual style is. EVERYONE and I do mean everyone, neeeeds a plain black bikini. Now I know for a fact mine has seen some better days and the cut and style of those bottoms will be really good for making me catfish the entire world into thinking I've got long legs.
Tell me this dress doesn't scream day drinks with the gals. That's right. You won't because you ain't no liar.
If you're in the mood for something a little feminine and flirty this season then look no further.
I can genuinely say I haven't seen a bikini style like this anywhere yet and the orange apricot colour is exactly what the doctor ordered. However, if the colour is a little too bright for you, it also comes in black.
Now, if you're not in the mood for something feminine and flirty and want something a lil' more ~sexy~ then honestly, nothing will trump this swimsuit. This one is actually Natasha's favourite item out of the collection and I can see why.
The deep V-neckline and the waistband is going to give you the most flattering figure of the century. This swimsuit is going to turn the heat up this summer and you know what? I'll take seven, please.
Looking for a summery outfit perfect for daytime and night-time? Done.
The top and pants are sold separately so if you prefer to mix and match you can too.
Forget the simple plain black one-piece. The small details on this item really set it apart from everything on the market. From the rouched material to the square neckline and thick straps. It's different, it's trendy and it's just been added to my cart.
Remember when I told you these swim and clothing styles aren't the same things we see day in and day out every season? Well, I hate to say I told you so but.
Oakley is pretty proud (and rightfully so) of her collection with Nasty Gal. The Aussie model states that she "was so excited to partner with Nasty Gal on this edit that envisions my personal summer style through sexy swim shapes and wearable femininity".
"Your style is a reflection of your personality – this collection is for the super feminine, confident girl that chases the summer sun and lives for a warm summer night!"
The model got her main inspiration from the classic movie Pretty Woman, which celebrates it's 30th anniversary this year. Natasha also joins Nasty Gal alumni Sarah Ellen and Em Rata who recently released their own Nasty Gal collection.
