When it comes to remaining fashionable on the beach there are some essentials you just can’t go without. Whether you’re getting ready to jet off to a warmer climate, or if you’re just looking to make the most of the weather at home, it’s always good to keep style and practicality in mind. Being at the beach doesn’t mean you should forget about looking good, so here is Thomas Royall’s guide to staying trendy when you’re hoping to make the most of the good weather.
When the rays are beating down you’ll be grateful for a quality pair of sunglasses Make sure you go for a frame that flatters the shape of your face, and don’t just plump for the first pair you see. This is true whether you’re looking for a cheaper, one-time pair of sunglasses or if you’re hoping to invest in something that will last a few years. It never hurts to shop around. You’ll rarely go wrong with timeless classics such as the aviator, clubmaster or wayfarer, or alternatively there are print and coloured sunglasses that are growing in popularity.
We know you’re eager to pick up that great looking suntan, but you’ll still have to remember a beach top to accompany you before and after the beach. Being able to throw a shirt or t-shirt on while you’re at the beach can really come in handy if you’re starting to feel the heat a little bit. Just remember, there’s never any excuse for poor style. Simple block colours or patterns that complement your swimwear is the best option. Shirts are the smarter choice, and they’re ideal if you’re planning on heading to a party straight afterwards.
Hats aren’t usually needed in your day to day wardrobe, however at the beach they’ve seen something of a resurgence. In beaches all over the world you are likely to find at least a few people with a straw trilby, and it goes with plenty of different styles of swimwear. This type of hat is light and cool, making it the ideal choice for relaxing by the sea. If you get the headwear right you could really set yourself apart from the rest of the crowd this summer.
Flip-flops are a firm favourite for the beach, and for good reason. There’s no need to worry about getting sand in your shoes and they can be taken off and put on quickly. However if you need to transition from the beach to a party then you might want to explore a few other options. This includes boat shoes and leather sandals, which are a bit more refined and give you more options for when the sun sets.
You might be the kind of person that brings a lot of accessories to the beach, in which case you’re probably going to need a stylish beach bag that can fit everything in. The tote is a popular go-to choice as it’s easy to carry, can fit a lot of items in and it’s relatively inexpensive. If you don’t fancy bringing a tote bag then a simple holdall can suffice, due to its easy to carry handles. A downside to a holdall is the fact that it may be a struggle to fit it inside your suitcase if you want to take it on holiday.
It’s no secret that the most important item when it comes to looking good on the beach will be your swimwear. It’s imperative to go with a trendy, stylish look that complements your body type, and with such a huge range of colours and designs to choose from you should always make sure you have at least four or five pairs to pull out from your wardrobe when you need them.
