Being at the beach is one the best things to do in summer, whether you’re swimming in the sea or sipping a cocktail and reading a book. Planning your beach outfits is also super fun, with these six ideas giving you some inspiration for stylish, comfortable and chic fashion looks.
Swimsuit and skirt
Whether you like a one-piece swimsuit or prefer a bikini, pair your swimwear with a floaty midi skirt for an super easy look that you can wear travelling to the beach and easily break out of when you’re ready to sunbathe. This also works well for after-beach parties.
Wrap it up
Wearing a floaty kimono or lightweight robe that you can wrap around you over your bikini is a great way to cover up at the beach without looking boring. Animal print is a big trend for beachwear this summer.
Beaches and maxi dresses are a match made in heaven. You don’t need to feel overdressed in a maxi dress if you choose from the AX Paris collection www.axparis.com/collections/maxi-dresses, with frills, floral prints or wrap-over styles all perfect for a beach look. A maxi dress can give you plenty of floaty coverage when the beach heats up and you need to cool things down for a bit.
Tying up your hair with a scarf brings a bit of retro or boho style to your beach look. It’s an easy way to beach up a simple T-shirt and shorts style or give the finishing touch to a full-on kaftan and sparkly flip flops.
If you’re going to the beach for the posing rather than the swimming, you don’t have to think about swimwear and can wear patterned scarves tied as a top and paired with a pair of high-waisted trousers for a style that’s right for cocktails and strolls. Trousers in bright colours or prints can bring a touch of boho to your beach look.
Pair a bikini top or a crop top with a sarong so you can easily wander in and out of the water without having to strip too many layers on and off. Short tops also look fab with a high-waisted skirt for a flirty evening look, or dress them down with shorts for a casual daytime look.
