Strut Your Summer Style on Your Next Beach Vacay

Whether you plan on spending time at a local beach, or are heading off for a tropical island getaway, everybody always wants to look their best when strutting their stuff on the sand. From boho chic to feminine and flirty, here is some inspiration for those who are looking to update their summer style.

Boho Chic
For those who are looking to create a boho chic look, a bikini is best, and preferably one that has some added stitching details or embroidery. Crocheted bikinis also fit into this style well, but they often do not hold up properly in the water, so this is something to consider if you were hoping to do a fair amount of swimming or try out some water sports. To complete your boho look, add a flowing beach cover-up, such as a caftan, and top this with a wide-brimmed hat.

Colourful and Fun
Summer is all about brightness and vibrancy, meaning that it is a great time to put together a fun and colourful beach outfit. Look for a bikini or a one piece that features a bold print, whether this may be feminine florals or statement graphics. For a cover-up, opt for some white shorts and a single coloured tank top, as you do not want these to clash with your bikini, but jazz this look up with accessories, whether this be colourful stacked bracelets or beaded sandals.

Mismatched Two-Pieces
Buying new swimwear each season can be tiresome, especially if you already have a wardrobe full of different styles. This year, rather than purchasing several more, try to mix up your look by donning a mismatched two-piece. Whether this means mixing a printed top with solid bottoms, or a frilly top with bikini shorts, this is a great way to add more of your own personal style into your look.

Maxi Dress
If you do not plan on baring all of your skin at the beach, then a maxi dress is the perfect style to go for, whether you wear this on its own or over your swimwear. A bright print is ideal for a day at the beach, and can easily be dressed up later on in the evening with a pair of heels and some added accessories.

Tankinis
Tankinis are similar to bikinis, except for the fact that, instead of featuring a regular bikini top, the top section is styled in a similar way to that of a tank top, offering you more coverage. This makes it well-suited for those who do not want to show off their stomach on the beach, but who still want a two piece style. Tankinis are available in so many different styles, colours and prints, meaning that they can be adapted into all of the beach looks mentioned above.

Now that spring is here, this is the perfect time to begin planning your summer wardrobe. Whether your style is boho and down-to-earth or bold and colourful, these ideas will ensure that you look nothing but stylish this summer on the beach.
