Beachwear Ideas You Have to Try Out picture

There is always that perfect idea that comes to us every beach season. Yet, some of us are so comfortable in our bikinis and swimsuits that we don’t even consider switching it up every once in a while.

Luckily, we are here to change that. There is so much more to beachwear than swimsuits and bikinis. If you don’t trust us, then a trip to Pampelone would very well change your mind.

We are so excited and we do not want to waste any more time. So, open up your closet or that online store and let us get you ready for the summer with these awesome beachwear ideas.

1. A Floral or Bright Maxi Dress

The beach has so much fun to offer. From candlelit dinners in the evenings to get-together parties with friends in the daytime and so much more. Well, allow us to introduce you to the perfect fit for these fun activities, the maxi dress. Trust us, we believe this is the greatest beach essential and a must-have for anyone hoping to have all the summer fun.

What makes this piece so essential? For starters, throwing it on is so easy. You could also use accessories and shoes to either dress it down or up depending on the occasion.

2. A Big Button-down Shirt

So, you don’t want to let go of the bikini just yet? Well, what better way is there to spice up things other than throwing on a cute big button-down shirt as a cover-up?

Styling your bikini this way would scream classy, sexy, yet effortless. Don’t even get us started on how versatile you can get with this look. You can choose to let the shirt hang loose, you can also decide to tie it around your waist. The choice is all yours.

3. Slip Dress

The weather during summer may sometimes get super sticky and humid. In cases like this, a silk slip dress can save the day. You can visit https://www.pinterest.com/qianyuyang/slip-dress/ to see several trendy slip dress ideas. It is silk, so a fancy look can be easily achieved without you piling on several accessories.

You could pair the dress with flat strap sandals to get that carefree but great vacation look.

4. A Midi Skirt and Tank

Most people will often think of the traditional maxi dresses when an evening on the beach is mentioned. While this is a wonderful idea (it even has a spot on our list), you can always stand out by trying out something else.

By something else, we mean a midi skirt paired with a tank. You want to go with a midi skirt with a silk flowery pattern. A simple white t-shirt or tank will effortlessly complete the look. You will be so comfortable and beautiful in this outfit that it would soon become your go-to both on and off the beach.

5. Printed Shorts and Swimsuit

As we have said and we all know, summer is a fun-filled time. There are so many activities lined up that you would soon find yourself shuffling from lunch on the beach to the boat and back on the sand. The ocean and the sun are at your disposal and you want to take full advantage of them.

While you want to look your best, you want to be comfortable too. This is why we know pairing your preferred printed shorts with your swimsuit (wear it as a top) would not just look great but would provide all the comfort you need.

6. Bikini Top and Baggy Jeans

Baggy jeans are all the rave now and we can’t get enough of them. So, it should be no wonder that it found its way into our list.

You can get that perfect beach look by pairing your baggy pants with a bikini top. You can maintain a simple look by just sticking to just these or you can go over the edge and bedazzle the baggy jeans with beach theme ideas. Watch this video to learn how to bedazzle your jeans. You can also add accessories such as bucket hats and chain belts to further spice things up.

Conclusion

When thinking of beachwear you need to think versatile and switch things up. Sticking to just your bikini and swimsuits won’t do the job. Hence, in this article, we have listed out some great beachwear ideas that would be just right for you.

Fashion Tips from Fashion Icon – Iris Apfel

Here are three of my favourite fashion tips from Iris Apfel:

Dress to please yourself

This is a great tip. Many times we are carried away with the styles in vogue, that we forget to dress for ourselves and not for social media or the public. It is nice to know what styles are trending just incase you like them, but the first thing to have in mind when playing dress up is to dress to please yourself. That way you will step out feeling confident and comfortable.

Explore fashion

This is another fab tip. To create your own signature look, you need to explore what is out there. I love exploring fashion by trying new styles and pieces to see how they fit into my personal style. As a fashion blogger, it also allows me to try out new trends. Exploring fashion is a great way to discover likes and dislikes.

Go for signature pieces

Iris Apfel is known as the Queen of Accessories, and you just need to Google her to find out why. This fashion icon wears a lot of accessories and she makes them work. I would love to see her accessories collection. I bet she has loads.

When it comes to investing in my wardrobe, I spend a little more on signature pieces that would send the test of time. I like to spend a little on accessories, especially hand bags. Going for signature pieces allow you create the perfect capsule wardrobe.

Here is me wishing Iris Apfel a fantastic birthday for tomorrow. 100 years on this planet is something and she looks like simply gorgeous. Happy birthday to the Queen of Accessories.

 

 

Style Icon: Enya

I listen to songs by Enya everyday on my Spotify. I love her music so much that I have an entire playlist dedicated to Enya! At the time of writing, the playlist has 55 songs, and I am forever discovering great tracks by her, so I am certain the playlist will grow even more before the end of the year. Enya’s music is just on of the things I like about this talented Irish singer-songwriter and musician. Another thing I really love about Enya is her simple sense of fashion. Her personal style is very chic and so feminine. She does wear a lot of colour. I have noticed she tends to stick to monochrome, and it suits her perfectly.

Style Icon: Enya

Enya has the figure to slay most looks and she always does on the red carpet. I love this stunning white dress she is rocking above. This was her look at the Grammys in 2017. I can’t fault the look in anywhere. From her hair down to the accessories, she stayed all the way.

It is incredibly hard to find any information about Enya online, especially when it is outside of her music. This style icon is incredibly private, even though she has been active in the music industry for over 40 years. It would have been nice to read some of her recent interviews and find out more about the woman behind the amazing music, but there are no traces of her granting an interview online. So I guess Enya will remain a mystery to us. Which I am sure is what she wants, and I can’t blame. The press usually do more harm than good. Let the music speak for itself.

What do you of Enya as a style icon? Are you a fan of her music? My favourite is The Forge of the Angels. You can read about last month’s style icon: Dr Wendy Osefo here.
