Take a dive into our sizzling hot looks that will keep you fashionably beach chic. After all, you want to be prepared to take that perfect summer selfie!!
Denim: an all-american classic, and a staple during any season. When the sun is shining and temperatures are rising, try adding shorts to your denim collection. Need a coverup - throw on some fraying cutoffs!! Headed to lunch - pair a cute top with some cuffed shorts. Sunset cocktails - white jeans and your favorite top!! Caitlin from Southern Curls & Pearls mixes her denim with a flowy top and turquoise accessories to bring beach vibes to her look.

THE WHITE DRESS
We can't say it enough, white this season is hot, hot, hot!! Sun dresses are a classic summer staple, so trying wearing them in this natural hue. We are also currently crushing on lace dresses, which bring a girly mix to your wardrobe and are super easy to style. We love the combo of these two on Margo, plus the dainty layers of jewelry she added to accessorize her white lace dress.

Stripes are always in style, and a striped shirt instantly adds a nautical vibe to your summer wardrobe. Add some waves with a breezy skirt or loose scarf. Use caution, however, as this look can easily turn into a 1950s costume. Malena from Fashion Container looks fabulous in her modern nautical look, no costume party here!!

THE BEACH MAXI
Not all beach looks have to show a lot of skin. Try a fun maxi with a cute top or button down for a comfortable and easy look. Throw on some chunky jewelry to spice it up, wear your hair in loose waves, pull on some sandals and you are total beach-babe ready!! This look is great for everything from a sunset stroll in the waves to shopping around town. We love Sally from A Piece of Toast’s fabulous yet comfortable beach look.

The beach is one of my favorite places to be during the summer (or anytime really), and you will typically find me near the water with a good book and a sweet drink. But when the sun goes down, I want a hassle-free outfit that can go from surf to cocktail. I hope you get to enjoy some time at the beach this summer, and utilize these looks to make your beach wear as fabulous as the view.
