Your Staple Beachwear For Summer
Posted on 25 June 2018
Whether you're heading off on holiday or just catching some rays at home, beachwear is essential to surviving the summer season. Build your summer wardrobe wisely and it'll take you from your garden to the beach, from the park to the poolside… here are a few of our favourite staple pieces for summer.
The One Piece
For women, the one piece is a great go-to whether it's for laps in the pool, cocktails on the sun lounger, or for teaming with shorts or a wraparound skirt. Polkadots and stripes are the current pattern faves, they bring a fresh, Riviera feel to swimwear. Look for extra style details such as ruffles, cut-out sections and tie-up sides to give it even more of a fashion spin.
A great cover-up will take you from the beach to the boardwalk and beyond. Kimonos, batwing dresses and sheer wraparounds are all classic candidates, but you don't have to stick to the traditional beach coverup for when you're done sunbathing. Choose a slip dress to bring some grungy 90s vibes to your look, or opt for a silky maxi dress to stick with a pair of heels and a great hat for a dinner and poolside parties.
A Cool Head
Talking of great hats, up your accessories game for the summer and bring some fancy vibes to your swimsuit with some headwear. Women can look to oversized sun hats; choose a natural straw hat for a classic feel, or pick up one with an embroidered slogan to bring some personality to the sands. Caps and bucket hats bring a retro mood, perfect if you're wearing board shorts and sliders.
You'll bring your beach look to new heights with some great accessories, whether it's a refined watch to give your outfit a touch of luxe, or some gold charm necklaces that you can layer for an exotic roman feel. A great pair of sunglasses is a must for any summer look. Retro cat eyes and nostalgic heart-shaped sunnies are a great pick for the beach this season.
This year is all about the natural, pure fabrics, with beach baskets reigning the style stakes when it comes to carrying your holiday necessities. Pick a rigid style if you're going on a picnic, choose a cross body basket bag for days out in the park, or opt for a string bag if you want to style it up like the Instagrammers.
