Dress to Impress

You might be relaxing on the beach, but that doesn’t mean you have to compromise your sense of style. In fact, if you want to sizzle on the sand this summer, you’ll have to do more than just kick back with messy bun and old flip flops.

Swap out your flip flops for a pair of trendy espadrilles or wedges when you’re ready for a beachside dinner date. That way you’re still looking beachy keen, but like you put in some effort.


Whatever you’re wearing, whether it’s just a bikini and a sarong or a complete beach outfit, a few simple accessories will make up the style anti. From beach bags to hats and necklaces or even henna tattoos, your beach look isn’t complete without a few finishing touches.

If you want to get that ‘I’m famous’ look, wear a pair of oversized shades and a floppy fedora or for surfer chick, add a cute shell necklace or even a (fishtail braid – directions here) and some flowers to your hair.

The salty sea and harsh UV rays can wreak havoc with your skin and hair, so it’s important to moisturize as much as possible before you and after your beach jaunt.

Take care of your skin with a suitable factor sunscreen and a generous helping of after sun.
