Here are our trending tips of how to look stylish on the beach during your getaway to paradise:

Beach Vacation Look

The perfect beach vacation look of elegance, sexiness, and style starts at the top and works its way down. Here’s what’s trending now from the luxurious beaches of Mexico to the Caribbean and all the way to the exotic beaches of Bali.

Step onto the beautiful beaches of Mexico looking great and feeling great in a wide brim hat, full frame sunglasses, an exotic kimono beach cover up, sleek bathing suit or bikini, oversized natural woven tote bag, and fabulous slip-on sandals. With these simple pieces, your beach look will be complete.

Summer Bikini

Your bikini will be your vacation staple, which is why it’s good to pack a few. A classic black bikini will make you feel elegant and sophisticated while sipping cocktails on your beach lounge chair.

You’ll probably be doing some fun water sports and activities on your vacation, so a sporty and playful bikini is in order…go for a bold and colorful tropical print that’s trending now for a bit of beach theme. Invest in bikinis this summer that can also double as a top to be worn with a sarong and you’ve got another cute outfit to wear.

For comfort and sophistication, high waisted bikini bottoms can give a fun retro bikini look that is also great for water activities and plus-size body shapes. Above all, you want a cute bikini that will make you feel confident and beautiful.

Beach Cover Up

You have your bikinis selected, now you need a cute beach cover up. This is where you can have fun making a stylish statement with your beach outfit. Go bohemian chic with a gorgeous print kimono or kaftan, or playful with a bright and colorful sarong, which can be tied and worn in a variety of fun skirt to dresses styles or the classic oversized button down top.

Feel sexy and stylish when you walk from your luxury hotel room to the beach or Rooftop bar to grab another refreshing cocktail. Embrace the beauty of your surroundings and make your own style statement.

We always love the classic oversized button-down shirt for a loose and breezy vibe in crisp white linen paired with an oversized rustic straw tote and glamorous wide brim hat, with a string bikini underneath. You’ll have an effortless, yet incredibly chic beach look.

These are all great options to quickly throw over your swimsuit and also can double as accessories over a cute outfit paired with strappy sandals and stackable gold bracelets to complete your look.

As consumers turn towards sustainable fashion, designers are stepping up and sourcing textiles that are eco-friendly. For now, sustainable fashion comes at a steep price point. However, for the conscious consumer, this is a worthy investment.

We love sustainable fashion for its unique fabrics and earthy and neutral colors that scream resort wear and are perfect for feeling as one with the natural surroundings of Mexico’s tropical paradise.

There’s nothing quite as fresh as wearing lightweight cottons during summer. Behold the effortlessly cool look of this dressed up summer look: a bandeau bikini styled top with a high-waisted, loose-fitting trouser, and a short flowing kimono, great for a candlelit beachside dinner.

Style it up with subtle hints of gold jewelry like a medium-sized hoop earring and some full tortoise shell frame sunglasses.

Sage Top and Skirt


Dresses to Impress

There is truly no better time to embrace color and pattern than with a tropical vacation wardrobe. The beach isn’t just for swimsuits; it’s also the perfect setting to show off your cute outfits.

Beach dressing is made easy with a flattering and easy to wear maxi dress. Go for a goddess style maxi dress with a dynamic backless and halter design for a sexy statement.

Tie-dye is a summer favorite, however trending now are the colorful ombre maxi dresses with blended bright and bold colors. Make this your go-to day outfit for brunch time spent on the sand with a pina colada in hand while overlooking the shimmering blue seas of Mexico’s stunning coastline.

Pair with simple and classic leather slip-ons and a fringe bag for sophisticated boho chic look.

Summer Essentials

Woven accessories are definitely popular this season. To complete your cute outfit, an oversized woven beach bag will be your favorite tote to carry all your summer essentials to the beach or while shopping the quaint cobbled streets of Mexico’s resort towns.

Also popular are woven plastic totes to carry your beach necessities like sunblock, water, and cell phone. Best of all, they are waterproof so they clean up easily after a day at the beach.

Mexico also has a great variety of plastic mesh bags that are wonderfully colorful with bold striped designs to add freshness and a more “locals” vibe to your beach look.

Now all you need is a stylish beach towel for your day trips – handwoven and lightweight Turkish towels are the way to go for a stylish beach accessory.

Wide Brim Hats are Where it’s At

The woven straw hat with a wide brim is where it’s at this summer. Add a sophisticated and classic European chic look to your beach outfit this season. Choose natural color to blend seamlessly with all your vacation wardrobe or feel free to add some color for a playful elegant statement.

A wide brim hat is more than a fashion statement. Don’t forget that while we love that sun-kissed glow on our skin, it’s also important to use plenty of SPF and wear a wide brim hat to protect from harmful UV rays.
