I love a white bikini – or even a full white outfit in summer – but you might want to hold off until you’ve built up your tan. Whether you go for monochrome or colourful with the right swimwear you can feel your best on the beach.


You don’t always have to wear a swimsuit when heading to the beach. If you are planning a barbecue with friends, a picnic with your family or a visit to a beachfront restaurant with your partner, you’ll want to opt for something more covered up. Styling a pair of paper-bag shorts with a crochet top is the perfect way to give off beachy vibes yet still feel dressed. Bring a light-knitted dress that leaves perhaps little to the imagination but still enough that you are comfortable in a restaurant setting. Plus warm enough when the sun sets.

Jewellery, a straw hat and a big stylish bag will keep you looking gorgeous in the sun. You can elevate your outfit with the right accessories. Summer is all about having fun in the sun, and there’s no better way to do that than getting creative with what you wear to the beach. What’s your favourite pool outfit for summer?
