Summer is officially here, which means it’s time to start holiday shopping for your next getaway. Whether you are looking for wholesale beachwear or to update your personal collection ahead of the summer season, we’ve got you sorted with our guide to ultimate beach styles.
From new ways to cover up to the ultimate beach accessory, here’s everything you should be adding to your wardrobe before you jet off on your next holiday.
Everyone loves a multi-purpose outfit, and unless you’re planning on spending all day at the beach, you’ll want an outfit that will look just as good on the sandy shores as it does while you’re out grabbing a bite to eat, or doing a spot of holiday shopping. This beachwear style is in many ways the easiest to put together as you can style up a one-piece bathing suit with some cute shorts or an asymmetrical skirt and you are ready to go. Accessorize with a large boho hat and some stylish sandals and you are ready to hit the pavement. You could also explore UPF tops for women, which will provide you with protection from the sun while still looking stylish. These tops are also great for water sports and other activities that require maximum mobility and sun protection.
Asymmetrical skirts are a hot trend for this season, so you’ll easily be able to find the perfect one for you, whether that’s something plain and simple, or a piece with an eye-catching pattern. Once you’re back to the beach, all you have to do is step out of your sandals, take off your shorts or skirt, and reapply your sunscreen.
The Mix and Match Look
While co-ords and twin sets are sweeping the fashion world, when it comes to the beach nothing gives off a casual cool vibe like mixing and matching your bikinis. Pair some brightly colored bottoms with a striped top, or clash different patterns for a beach-ready take on one of the top SS19 trends.
This fun style is also a good way to get some extra mileage out of the bikinis you own, as there are endless ways that you can mix different tops and bottoms. If you don’t already own some, now is the time to invest in some pieces covering key trends. These include snakeskin print, neons and brights, florals, block colours, and stripes.
The New Cover-Ups
Although sarongs have been an enduring style in the world of beachwear, it’s time to be adventurous and slip on something a little bit different when it comes time to cover up. Tunic dresses are the perfect alternative, instantly raising your style game without looking too formal or structured.
Relaxed-fit rompers and playsuits also make for great cover-ups thanks to their casual vibe. Throw one on and you are ready to hit the beach bar for a cocktail while still looking suitably beachy.
The Ultimate Accessory
When it comes to beach styles, we simply cannot talk about fashion without mentioning the ultimate beach accessory: a hat. Not only does it complete any beach outfit, but it also serves a very important practical purpose, protecting your face from the sun.
Wide brim, ‘70s style boho hats are beachwear goals this year with their classic style and oversized look. For something more relaxed, choose a straw hat instead for an authentic beachwear vibe.
The Long Shorts
Thanks in no small part to the Kardashian clan (or should that be klan?) Bermuda shorts are back in fashion, and back to the top of the hottest beach styles list for this summer. Despite their longer than traditional length, these shorts are incredibly flattering and stylish.
Available in a range of different materials, you can style these up or keep them casual depending on what you choose to pair them with. Our tip? Invest in a white denim pair – this will look stunning on your newly tanned legs, further accentuating their color.
