As you count the days when all work will be replaced by all play, or better yet, major fun in the sun, the anticipation fills your heart. You open our closets as well your suitcase and envision and pre-plan the most out of this world stylish beach outfits that will turn you into an absolute reigning queen of the beach.
In case you find yourself at sea (figuratively), not sure you can put it all together, well, you’ve come to the right place. We are here with an abundance of advice on putting together your arsenal of perfect beach attire, so let’s just dive in, so you can dive into your vacation with the best possible look(s).
How to Be the Ultimate Beach Goddess
The Bohemian Queen
While minimalism can be a way to go, as its influence is taking the fashion world by a storm, if at heart, you are a true bohemian girl, go with your instinct because this trend is far from dying out. The focal point of this look is definitely a sexy white crochet bikini. For this look, you wouldn’t be wrong with either a sarong or a kaftan, but in order to show your crochet top off, go with a maxi skirt.
This look calls for an abundance of accessories so everything from wooden or silver and gold ankle and wrist bracelets is fair game, and the policy is – the more the better. A simple woven tote in a nude hue with nude flats to match will bring a bit of earthiness to the look and complement it perfectly.
The Head-to-Toe Statement Girl
If you’re not the one to shy away from different colors and prints, mixing different patterns is right up your alley. The floral print has always been around, but this year we have been witness to its bold, more colorful transformation on this year’s runways, the florals you want to rock this season are vibrant, a touch darker and less demure, so make sure you go big, big blooms, that is. The most popular, by far, is the ‘80s evoking high-leg one-pieces that will make you look steaming hot.
No goddess look is complete without accessories, and since you’re a statement kind of girl, make an additional impact with, again, a floral sarong. You can style it in numerous ways, turn it into anything from a one-shoulder dress to a harem pant jumpsuit. To complete the look in a grand and ostentatious way, a head-scarf is in order, followed by big round shades, a multi-color shoulder bag, and platform espadrilles.
The Adventure Seeker
You’re not the sunbathing-and-sipping-cocktails-by-the-beach type of girl. You’re the one who craves the crashing of the waves against her skin as you surf or swim for hours. If this rings a bell, then something more practical, enduring and supporting is in order. Luckily, practicality doesn’t have to stand in the way of strikingly hot look, especially if you’re wearing something like Duskii Saint Tropez Neoprene tank suit. You can look like a bonafide Bond Girl and do your own stunts.
Once you’re out of the water and on dry land, top the look off with rectangular black sunglasses for an additional touch of edginess, a pair of black flat sandals and a black sarong casually tied around your waist. Simple yet so unbelievably effective.
The Pin-Up Model
To attain that elusive look that is both insanely sexy and utterly sophisticated you will need to go back in time. Thanks to numerous vintage shops as well as shops that specialize in new but vintage-looking attire, it has never been easier to put it together.
This look, of course, revolves around a one-piece suit. It can be stripy, burnt orange, or graced by the ever-feminine polka dots. Big hat is a must have companion of this look, along with some heart-shaped glasses and a pair of platform sandals with a satin ankle strap. As the suit is sexy yet conservative enough, there is no need to cover up any further. Besides, who would want to cover up a suit like this?
