6 Ways To Sport Your Summer Beach Style

A Comprehensive Guide to a Complete Beach Style

By Brigitte Evans

We all love dreaming about our summer vacations long before they even happen. Thinking about that wide, blue ocean, beautiful sandy beaches, getting a perfect tan and finally managing to rest and recharge our energy is a sublime fantasy for the times when we’re bored at work.

To make the best of it, every fashion lover wants to rock the best outfits, have the sexiest body, and show off their style during the hottest summer months. Can you rise up to the challenge of picking out the best pieces and styling the perfect beach outfit? Of course you can, and we’re here to give you some inspiration.

Remember that your body is your best asset

Whether you’re an athletic Amazonian goddess or a curvy pin up babe, you want to prep your body for the sizzling heat and revealing outfits you’ll be wearing. Tone your muscles with some fast and fun workouts, a healthy diet, and a high-quality, nourishing body lotion. Laser hair removal is something to consider if you’re tired of waxing and shaving, just make sure to start on time because you need several treatments to produce perfect results. Exfoliate your whole body with a good charcoal scrub and stock up on sunscreen. That’s the most important bit. You will need to reapply sunscreen every two hours and you cannot skip this step.

Invest in a sexy bathing suit

There are so many options that are trendy this year. You’re bound to find something that suits you. From crochet bikinis to the wildly popular one-piece swimsuits, pick whatever compliments your body type. A cute polka dot bikini paired with a headscarf and bright red lipstick will give you a 40s vibe, or maybe you prefer a solid-color one-piece for swimming. Halter tops, gingham print and ruffles are also in if you want feminine styles. Remain minimalist or go big – it’s up to you.

Bring your look to the next level with a perfect pair of shades

One, you need sunglasses to protect your eyes from the glare, and two, there’s no quicker way to turn into a foxy, too-cool-for-you kind of babe. Show off your fashion diva stylishness with a pair of Prada sunglasses, and make sure you wear a bold-colored lipstick to complete the look. Glamorous as hell in less than two seconds.

Keep cool and stand out with a summer hat

Rocking a straw fedora or large floppy hat is a good way to keep your head cool and make any outfit pop. Put on your bathing suit, a wide-brimmed hat, a short denim skirt, and sashay down the beach like it’s a runway.

Cover up with a cute wrap

When it comes to what you wear over your bathing suit, you can get pretty creative. Wraps are light and easy to switch around, and you can pack a few of them without sacrificing too much space in your suitcase. A white, see-through cover up can be the perfect addition to your crochet bathing suit if you want a boho chic vibe, or you can even pick a colorful maxi dress. Accessorize by layering long necklaces and wearing leather sandals.

Complete the look with an oversized tote bag

A huge bag is a perfect thing to have on the beach. You need to pack a thousand things so you want something big and stylish that won’t get ruined by sand and salt water. Canvas, straw, and plastic are all good choices. Find something with sailor stripes or bright colors that go well with your bathing suit.

There are plenty of great trends for 2017, but style isn’t just about following them, it’s about putting your own twist on what’s popular. Play with colors and mix and match details to create perfect outfits and show off your glamour and perfect sense of fashion.
