Summer means the end of nights cuddled under your blankets and the start of days spent under the sun.
With your Instagram feed full of candid photos of people at the beach with nothing but clear skies and an ocean behind them, it’s time to turn your bathing suit up a notch.
Here are some easy styling tips that’ll look great on you and in your pictures (no filter needed).
1. Straw Hat
There are some summer accessories you can’t go wrong with, and a straw hat is one of them. This neutral colored hat will have you enjoying your summer and feeling like you were meant for the beach (because you were, clearly). Along with adding this fun look to your bathing suit, it also helps protect you from the sun.
2. Lace Cover-Up
A cover-up is the simplest solution for anyone who wants a go-to outfit that will come off as trendy without trying too hard. We specifically love lace cover ups for their light and classic beach look. If something more casual is what you’re going for, choose a simply solid colored cover-up instead. This cover-up will take you seconds to throw on and give you the entire day to show off. Add a pair of chic sunglasses to make this your favorite ensemble.
3. Head Wrap
Trade out your summer hat for this edgy hair accessory. With so many versatile ways to use a hair wrap, this look won’t make you paranoid that you’re outfit repeating (or hair accessory repeating, if we want to be specific). As a flawless fashion statement, this accessory won’t let your hair become a victim of the wind and will leave you looking as sophisticated as you know you are.
4. Long Kimono
Whether you’re going to the beach or sitting poolside pretty, wearing a long kimono is a delicate look that’ll cover you up while still giving you the chance to show off your bathing suit. The best part of a long kimono? The sleek look works well with any bathing suit. Whenever you want to tan your shoulders, go ahead and let the kimono sit on your arms or wrap it around your waist for an effect similar to a sarong.
