What to Wear for Summer Beach Vacation

What to wear for summer beach vacation? I bet this question comes across most of our minds since it is officially the summer time, and most of us are going on a beach vacation! Hitting the beach is always one of my favourite things to do in Summer. Not only I get to enjoy the warm sun, sound of the rolling waves, toes in the sand and breeze in my hair. Beach is also a great place for me to calm my mind.

This summer, you will see many rattan and straw bags, button down pieces, crop tops, denim shorts, slides, espadrilles as well as wrap dresses.

When planning outfits for your beach vacation keep these simple style tips in mind:

  • Less is more – The weather is hot and humid, minimise your beach vacation outfit layering and accessories.
  • Wear a hat or sunglasses – Not only they protect your face from the sun, they also spice up your outfits.
  • Cute and comfy sandals make a huge difference. Instead of flips flops, opt for a pair of slides, gladiator sandals or espadrilles.
  • Wear a handbag that matches the beach & outfit. – Structured totes or handbags are meant for city outfits, not the beach. Bags I love to carry to beaches including canvas tote bag, rattan bag and straw bag.

When comes to beach vacation outfit, I always strive to be comfortable while still looking polished and put together. The first outfit is perfect to chill by the beach and enjoy a a glass of watermelon juice. For top, I wore a ribbed plunge v short sleeves crop top featuring the on-trend button down detailing. This season you will find tops, dresses, skirts, trousers, literally everything with this trend. A simple but effective trend, that makes outfits look seriously chic and expensive. Basics are now not so basic! So back to the outfit, I teamed the top with a pair of high-waisted mom denim shorts. To cinch the waist, I added a black belt. For bag, I carried my summer time favourite, straw bag. Lastly, I finished off my look with a pair of loafer slides.

The second beach vacation outfit is perfect for a romantic dinner by the beach. For dress, I have chosen the on-trend button down plunge v midi dress.

Outfit 3: Floral Print Maxi Dress Outfit


The third beach vacation outfit is for the new romantics out there to enjoy a long walk on the beach. For dress, I have chosen a flowy floral print wrap dress. If you plan to purchase this dress, it is pretty sheer, so make sure you add a lining to it. I’m loving the ditsy floral print that dancing all over it, adding that dreamy vibes. Not to mention, the soft hue is also so beautiful. For bag, I carried my new purchase, a rattan bag. Lastly, I slipped into a pair of brown leather slip-ons.
