If you are the kind of person who loves splashing around in the waves or the kind who'd rather sip a margarita while reading a good book, one thing's for sure: Beach days are the best days. And you know what makes them even better? The right outfit. And by the "right outfit," we mean wearing something over your bathing suit that makes you feel confident, comfortable, and ready for a Kodak moment without looking overdressed. Here are few tips:
1. High-Waisted Shorts + Bikini Top + Visor + Straw Bag
As much as we love a classic straw hat, we're really digging this visor look—it feels decidedly sportier and unexpected. Create cohesion with a matching straw circle bag and high-waisted shorts.
2. One-Piece Swimsuit + Denim Skirt
Make things easier on yourself by wearing a one-piece that can double as a top if you're planning on dining at a nearby restaurant during a midday sun break. And you can't go wrong.
3. Button-Down + Scarf + Bikini Bottoms
restimate a classic button-down, especially if you're looking for something that's easy to change in and out of. It exudes simple, easy elegance. Plus, this way you get to spice things up with accessories—we also love how the retro look of the hair scarf.
4. Kimono + Bikini Top + Trousers + Slides
A lightweight robe or kimono is a great coverup for the beach if you want to wear something that shows off your outfit but also allows for some coverage when needed. Some slouchy trousers and easy slide-on sandals complete the look.
5. Flowy Maxi Dress + Embellished Bag
It doesn't get easier than an oversize maxi dress. Loose, breathable, and sophisticated, it's everything you could ask for in a beach outfit. We also love how Emili Sindlev opted for a cute beaded bag to dress things up and keep her look intriguing.
