This year, beach trends highlight minimalism and simplicity. The key to keeping your look minimal is choosing to wear simple silhouettes with fewer accessories. All you really need is one simple piece as less really is more this season!

Our tips for summer are quick and easy: keep you face fresh and natural. Heavy makeup at the beach is not on trend this year! To maintain healthy hair, be certain that it is keep it hydrated with a leave-in conditioner.

A half-up hair style works well at the beach because it both keeps your hair off your face and requires little maintenance on a windy day.

And windy it was on Pedregal Beach in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, which provided the perfect backdrop for our photo shoot!

Our model Maddy Burciaga is wearing a black bustier top one-piece from ASOS that gives her a modern, fashionable vibe.

We accompanied this look with a printed chiffon dress, ideal for a swift transition to a seaside lunch.

A classic nautical vibe with a black and white stripe bikini from Wildfox is another great look for the upcoming summer season.

For more playful look, try a pink and white stripe two-piece or pineapple print bandeau two-piece. Both of these looks are also from Wildfox.

 Remember, for summer 2018, the trend is to keep it simple at the beach! Have fun in the sun and we hope you enjoy the following pictorial.

Let us know which look is your favorite!  We love them all! 🙂
