Whether it's hot humid nights or cool ocean breezes, being prepared for the summer at the beach requires the right pieces. Being that I live just 25 minutes from the beach, I consider my closet to be a prototype of the summer wardrobe.
Summer beach fashion is all about being comfortable and carefree. The "less is more" adage certainly applies when it comes to beachwear. My favorite go-to outfit is a strapless dress with stylish flip flops or sandals. I also love to wear my linen shorts with a t-shirt or tank top. I usually just throw up my hair in a ponytail, a"messy bun", or don a straw hat.
If you've been reading this blog, you know how much I emphasize the use of accessories with your outfits. Even if you are wearing basic items, the accessories you choose can add pizazz and uniqueness to any outfit. This is especially the case with beach or resort fashion. Create an arm party with colorful bracelets. You could also add some bling to your feet and draw attention to your fresh pedicure with these gold toe rings.
When hanging out in the evening or going for a stroll on the beach at night, make sure to carry a light sweater just in case it gets breezy. The must-have staple item, a button-up cardigan can be thrown in your tote bag so you don’t have to ever worry about getting chilly. I always carried a light sweater around at night when I visited Hawaii and Miami last summer.
