As the weather gets warmer, our style starts to evolve a little bit to include more summer pieces. If you’re currently in the process of doing that and want to channel the beach even when you’re not spending the day at the beach, these tips are sure to help you out! You’d be surprised by just how easy it is to incorporate the beach into your everyday look. It’s not always about wearing a bathing suit and sunscreen!
1. Sundresses for Days
Being on the beach is all about flowy dresses, which means that it’s time to pull your favorite sundresses out. If you’re trying to dress like you’re headed to the beach even if you’re not, a simple way to create that look is by wearing a sundress. It’s a quick and easy beach look that looks like you spent a lot of time putting it together!
2. Ditch the Heavy Makeup
When you go to the beach, do you wear a ton of heavy makeup? I’d say that the answer to that question is no, so why would your routine be any different now? One of the most important aspects of dressing like you’re at the beach is being carefree; so let that shine through in your makeup look as well!
3. Protect Your Skin
No, I don’t mean that you should wear SPF 50 if you’re not even going outside. Instead, wear a big, floppy hat like you would if you were trying to protect your skin at the beach. Sure, you may be wearing this hat more for fashion than for protection, but it’s a look that’s sure to be a hit.
4. Find Your Perfect Maxi Dress
What is about a cute maxi dress that is so reminiscent of days spent on the beach? If you can’t quite get your beach look right, try a maxi dress. The long, flowy skirt makes it a fun and carefree look for the perfect “day at the beach.”
5. Wear Crochet
Have you noticed just how often you see crochet on the beach? Whether it’s incorporated into your bathing suit, cover-up, or even a dress, adding a bit of crochet instantly adds a touch of the beach, so no matter where you are, you can feel like you’re on vacation!
6. Find a Shirt or Dress That Looks like a Cover-up
Cover-ups are beach essentials. Wear a tunic; whether it’s a shirt or dress that looks like it could be a cover-up, because it’s one of the easiest ways to bring a little touch of the beach. Don’t you just love how a cover-up instantly reminds you of vacation? Try to bring that into your own clothes with a tunic.
7. Don’t Be Afraid to Show Skin
A lot of times, you might convince yourself that showing skin is reserved for the beach. However, if you’re trying to emulate that coastal look, don’t be afraid to show some skin. Wear a shorter pair of shorts than you normally would, or even a crop top. If you want to dress like you’re at the beach, you can’t be afraid to show some skin!
