Beach season is almost here, and it’s time for you to get prepared. Whether you are looking forward to sunbathing or a picnic at the beach, there are no limits when it comes to beachwear. A beach outfit can be as straightforward as a swimsuit and sandals or to wear an Instagram-worthy maxi dress.
If you are struggling to figure out what to wear to the beach, this little guide is for you. Check out the seven beach outfit ideas and how to style them or get inspiration below.
The beach pants
A long, flowy and high-waisted wide-leg trousers are the game changer that will make a statement on your summer beachwear outfit. They are loose and relaxed, and often come with different prints and colours. You can easily pull off with them at any time. You can pair your pants with a fitted top such as halters, crop tops, bandeaus or bikini tops to create a balance on this outfit. Add a pair of strappy sandals or a lightweight mule to complete the look.
The maxi dress
A casual and versatile maxi dress is one of the perfect outfits for the beach. You can choose to wear a floral printed, colourful or embellished maxi dress for your summer holiday. To achieve a casual and chic look, you can style your maxi dress with a beaded bracelet, stud earrings and a long necklace.
The matching set
A matching set can be anything from a crop top and skirt to a loungewear set. You can quickly put on a two piece set at the beach over your swimwear as a coverup or when you are walking along the coast. Wear white linen or striped skirt set to create a casual and laid back style of outfit.
Denim is one of the most popular fabrics that you can wear anywhere and anytime. Denim short is perfect for summertime activities at the beach. You can go for a hipster style beachwear look by pairing your oversized sweater with a pair of denim shorts, which is great for chilly weather. And during hot summer days, you can add a trendy gold bikini set to these blue denim shorts for a chic and casual look.
The wrap skirts
The wrap skirts are an easy piece to style and fit well on almost all body types. And they are so easy to match with those wardrobe staples you might already have in your closet. To make it into a summertime beach look, you can pair this skirt with your favourite graphic tee or even a bold colour tee. You can make it more casual by adding a pair of white sneakers at the bottom.
Bikini and swimsuits look great at the beach, but when it’s time to dry off or to walk around, it might not be appropriate. Instead, you can style a bikini as a crop top and pair it with a comfortable pair of high-waisted pants or skirts at the bottom. If you are looking to have more coverups, you can wear a beach or linen dress on top of it.
The statement sunnies
Sometimes a beach look can be all about the accessories and sunglasses are arguably the one item that can make or break your entire summer wardrobe. And if you are settled on the perfect pair that makes a statement but still somehow goes with everything, it will level up your look from zero to a hundred in an instant. For example, you can choose bright yellow sunglasses and pair them with a patterned one-piece to create a playful beach look.
