Picking your perfect beach outfit
With summer just around the corner, it’s time to pick those perfect outfits to look great on the beach. Wherever you’re off to on holiday you’ll no doubt be dreaming of relaxing on the sand in your bikini or going for a gentle dip in the warm sea. Sounds perfect doesn’t it?
But we all know, spending time at the beach isn’t just about lounging on the sand and swimming in the sea. There’s the beach bars and restaurants to think of too. Being on the beach you’ll want to stay ahead in the style stakes at all times. Here we’ve got a few tips for getting that perfect beach outfit.
Think of your feet
Sandals are the perfect choice for the beach. Think open toe wedges or gladiator style sandals. Not only will they protect your feet on the hot sand you’ll look chic and stylish when making the move from beach to bar… and back again.
Stay big and bright in prints
We all know prints are one of the biggest trends for SS12. Whether swimwear or street fashion they’re everywhere this year. Even if you don’t opt for a vibrant print bikini you can still stay on trend with a print sun dress, tropical beach dress or bright maxi dress. Just slip it on over your bikini for the perfect look. Team with classic white, or clash with tropical print or bold floral.
Keep things classic
Prints are one thing, but if you’re going for a nautical theme with your swimwear this year, keep things chic, classic and understated. Opt for classic neutrals and maybe some stripes, but remember not to overdo it with the stripes. If you’re lucky enough to be on deck finish with some nautical ballerinas – even if you’re not on a yacht they’ll still complete the look perfectly.
To change up your beachside look why not opt for a dress with a little versatility? We’re thinking along the lines of a 4-in-1 dress – enabling you to keep everyone guessing with the option of working four different looks. Wear as a short or long bandeau dress, short or long skirt – or even match with a bikini or tailored top for those formal occasions away from the beach. Remember holiday style isn’t just about looking great – we also need to be savvy when it comes to packing, no one wants to go over the dreaded baggage allowance.
