Sun + sand + sea = the perfect remedy for late summer days this season. Whether you’re hitting the local beach with your besties or jetting off to an exotic vacay, we’ve got the perfect outfit ideas for you.
Read on to see how to stay chic and comfortable seaside.
Try a Maxi to Keep Your Cool
Is there anything easier than going breezy with a maxi skirt or dress for a day in the sun? The season transition is a great time to take boho to the max with longer hemlines. Amp up the vibe with earth tones in different textures and geo-inspired slides.
Pair denim shorts with a trendy top
When you want coverage for seaside sports like volleyball or frisbee, put on a pair of tried-and-true denim shorts. Want to test drive a trend? Try a frayed hem and sport them with a cheerful top in a conversational print or stripes (which are so easy to print-mix with floral sandals!).
Match a wrap dress with colorful shoes
Need a look that will transition seamlessly from the seaside to a city lunch? A flattering wrap dress in an eye-catching print will do the trick; just switch your casual flip flops for dainty sandals in a vibrant color.
Add Some Texture to Your Sundress
Slip into a bright-colored dress and partner it with matching shoes for maximum zest. Add dimension with espadrilles or wedges with a woven trim, and pop on your favorite seasonal straw bag for a sunny spin.
Keep it simple in a day-to-night romper
The cute little cousin to jumpsuits, this one-and-done piece may boast a shorter length, but it’s still long on style. Perfect for lingering hot days when you need something lightweight, a moody-floral romper will instantly take you from walking on sunshine to dancing in the moonlight.
Wear a tunic as a cover-up
Your office summer tunics can double as a cover-up on the weekend. Tunic-length tops are easy to throw on over a bathing suit, and you can even add a belt to fake a shirt dress FTW. Go with an animal print and hardware sandals for after-sunset shenanigans.
Stylist Tip: Want to try a trend that’s fun and functional? Stash your stuff in a beaded hobo, or keep things simple with a netted bag (you’ll never have to deal with sand stuck in your purse again!).
