Calling all beach babes. If you’re one of the lucky ones heading to a warm and sunny beach in the next few weeks, then we’ve put together her beach looks we wish we were wearing. A suit you’ll actually feel sexy in, a cover-up that works just as well at the beach as at the bar, and a comfortable but still chic pair of sandals you can slip into easily. Oh, and don’t forget a tote that you can throw everything you need into, from SPF to your favorite pair of shades.
There are so many designers making stylish one-pieces these days that it was honestly hard to pick our favorites. A one-piece can be just as sexy as a bikini, and this mesh v-neck from Bleu by Rod Beattie proves it. This Eres atheletic-inspired one piece proves that a plain black one-piece can be a girl’s best friend. The clean lines feel updated and fresh without being frumpy.
The cover-up is where you can really have some fun with it. We’ve never met a kaftan we didn’t like, but it’s the perfect piece for a vacation. A vacation is the perfect time to engage in some light theme dressing, like with this palm tree printed kaftan from Melissa Obadash. This colorful option from Le Sirenuse’s clothing line is beautiful and breezy. This leopard-print pareo can tie over your swimsuit but would look just as great with a sweater and sandals when it gets chilly later in the night.
When it comes to shoes, don’t overthink it. Leave your heels and sneakers behind and find a pair of leather sandals that work with everything. This cream knotted pair from J.Crew is gorgeous, and these leather thongs are as sophisticate as flip-flops get.
