The Beach Wear Edit

The summer months are well underway now, even though it doesn’t feel like it much here in the U.K but you might be escaping our terrible weather and off on a summer holiday somewhere full of sunshine and lots of warmth. Even though I’m not heading off anywhere that fits that description, I still have gathered a few ideas together to create a beach wear edit that you can take inspiration from for days out to the beach whether you’re staying at home or venturing away!

Swimwear is a major essential when it come to your beach wear. Even if you don’t fancy going into the water, you still want to put on some form of beach wear to relax on the sand and catch a few sun rays to kick start that tan. The two swim wear picks I have gone for include this tropical inspired bikini set from Topshop and this plunge front cross strap black swimsuit from Boohoo. Both of these are flattering pieces and would easily work well with other garments. Plus I think it’s always great to have a mixture of both fun prints and plain simple pieces in your swimwear collection.

When heading down to the beach or even when you just want a bit of a cover up to feel comfortable, there’s plenty of pieces you can throw on under your swimwear. Having a light weight, airy and easy to wear cover up like this white lace cover-up from River Island is ideal for wearing under your swimwear, as well helping you to look extra chic. You can also wear everyday pieces like these white embodied shorts from H&M and the short red crochet top from Zara for holiday friendly, super cute look. Playsuit’s and dresses are also great through on items, such as this khaki front frill bardot midi dress from New Look for a bit of colour and the parasian blue embroidered playsuit also from New Look. Embrodiary is a big trend for summer 2016, so wearing this feature will ensure you’re still looking super stylish whilst away!

In terms of shoes and accessories, the go to shoe for me is something that will be super comfortable if you’re walking down to the beach, but also something that is easy to slip on and off when you hit the sand, as well as keeping your feet cool and preventing overheating. Flat sandals are also big this summer, so why not go for something like these black ankle strap sandals from New Look that easily fit the beach appropriate shoe guide above and can also be used for night wear! Of course, you also want a cute beach bag to carry all your essentials down to the beach with you. As soon as I saw this watermelon beach bag from ASOS I fell in love with it. How adorable?! And last but nowhere means least, probably one of the most important things when going away and venturing out in the sun is a pair of sunglasses. Again, I fell in love with these pink round sunglasses from Topshop and think they’d make the perfect holiday accessory.

What are your favourite beach wear pieces?

    I always need a HUGE beach bag with me on the beach, I pack everything and anything just incase I need it, even if I go the pool, I don't want to have to go running back to the room for something!Sarah :)Saloca in Wonderland
