The beach is a great place to spend the summer holidays. It’s also a fabulous spot to throw parties and hang out with friends. You’ll probably be attending at least one beach party during the summer. Read on for some tips on how to choose the best outfits for one.
Summer is all about thin, breathable fabrics and light colours which absorb sunlight. White is often the best shade for summer and even if your clothing is a different colour, you can always incorporate something white into your outfit, be it a top, bag or pair of sandals. Also avoid too many accessories and high heeled shoes as you’ll look overdressed. Keep it simple and laid back. Boho chic is usually the best style for this type of setting, so stick to boho clothing. Dress to flatter your body shape. For example, if you’re a plus size, avoid tight, revealing clothing and stick to flowy cuts such as maxi dresses and kaftans. Dress for the occasion too. Some beach parties are held during the daytime or just before sunset and others at night, usually in front of a raging bonfire. If it’s an evening party, you could dress up a bit more glamorously than you would for a daytime party. Your make-up should be simple, using nude and barely there looks. Leave your hair loose in beachy waves or else tie up in a simple ponytail.
For a flirty beach babe look, match a white lace crop top, denim shorts and sandals. Crop tops are versatile and can be paired with a variety of combinations for great results. They are also cute and trendy and are great for warm, sunny days. Another combination is a white crop top and a long, flowing maxi skirt in a pastel shade or bold pattern. You can also combine crop tops with ripped jeans or a short jacket or half buttoned shirt. Other popular beach tops include tunics and kaftan shirts. These can be matched with beach pants and shorts.
Dresses are definitely a popular beachwear choice. They are feminine and attractive, and a flattering pick can make you the center of attention at any party. Choose dresses in lightweight fabrics and pastel shades. Maxi dresses with boho prints are usually the best pick for beach parties as they have a laid back style and provide the perfect vibe. Other choices include neon, tie and dye, floral summer dresses and crochet dresses. These look great paired with simple accessories, hats and metallic strap sandals. You could also pair them with a short jacket such as denim.
One piece outfits such as beach rompers and overalls have a classic beach look. They are also trendy and very flattering on certain body types, especially slim women with willowy figures. You can match your romper with various accessories including bracelets, necklaces and hats.
Remember to take a light beach bag with everything you’ll need, including tanning lotion, a towel, sunglasses and a hat.
