What to Wear on a Beach Vacation

For a tropical beach getaway, you’ll need some stylish beachwear that’s festive enough for those warm, luau-filled evenings. Whether you plan for warm walks in the sand or a midnight dip in the ocean, keep on reading for our stylish guidelines on how to look fashionable on your upcoming beach vacation.

Brightly Colored Dresses

Summer is all about bright and cheery colors so think of the most vibrant dresses that can make your beach vacation colorful. Like fashion blogger Veronica Popoiacu, opt for a red off-shoulder dress with ruffles to add some feminine flair to your beach looks. Or, go flirty with a ruffled pink dress worn with color blocked sandals like Annabelle Fleur did. Going for graphic print dresses, neon-colored dresses and such can be great to keep your looks fashion-forward and season-appropriate on your summer getaway.

Figure-Flattering Swimwear

Whether you’re a fan of sexy bikinis or figure-flattering swimsuit, swimwear can make or break or look so be careful in selecting them. For functional and stylish purpose, opt for swimsuits with side panels which are universally flattering, especially if you’re concerned on your muffin top or love handles. Going for tops with ruffles add some volume to your bust line while thick strap bikinis provide enough support for your frame.

Colorful Cover-ups or Shirts

If you’re fond of a classic style of swimwear that you can wear over and over again, spice them up with your cover-ups and shirts. Like Veronica Popoiacu, a printed cover-up or a brightly-colored shirt can instantly refresh the look of your swimsuits making them look new and stylish. Floral motifs and tie-dye patterns are summer-inspired perfect for your upcoming beach vacation.

Summer Accessories

Don’t discount the perfect straw fedora as it’ll shade your face from the sun and will give any look an instant island vibe. Lightweight scarves and sarong can also be your beach cover-ups when the sun is high. If you’re not a fan of hats, think of striped turbans that can make your looks a bit unexpected yet fashionable. Flip-flops are perfect for the beach, though going for strappy sandals that you wouldn’t mind getting wet are stylish too. Also, you may wear some dainty necklaces, earrings, or anklets at the beach as long as they’re secured and wouldn’t ruin your vacation if you’d lost them.

Off-the-Beach Ensembles

Looking breezy, chic, and airy off-the-beach can be achieved by going for colorful and lightweight ensembles that will keep you fashion-forward at the same time. Colorful shorts worn with tank tops, breezy tops with lace skirts, and lightweight tees with tiered skirts are perfect to look fashionable when you’re out of the waters. Remember, a beach vacation is all about having fun and soaking up the sun, so leave your signature pieces at home.
