7th June 2017
Picturing yourself on a beach is easy. Picturing yourself looking Insta-worthy when you’re staring into your wardrobe at last season’s summer gear is a bit different. Read on to get the lowdown on beach outfit ideas and what to bring for whatever your summer holiday has in store.
All day beach party looks – boarding now.
Retro swimsuits in Playa d’en Bossa, Ibiza
If you’re hitting up the strip on the party island after a day of sunning on the coastline, grab swimwear that not only works for the beach but also teams well with a pair of denim shorts and sandals for easy night time style. Our Varsity ’09 Swimsuit definitely ticks this box – ideal for spontaneous party invites, wear this as a bodysuit for a look that will see you through until you stumble back to your hotel in the early hours.

Short shorts on Sunny Beach, Bulgaria
With more sun than Miami, aptly named Sunny Beach in Bulgaria is definitely the spot to pull out the short shorts. Grab a pair in a printed style and team with a triangle bikini top and flip flops for casual beach vibes. Perfect if you decide to skip the beach altogether later and head off on one of the excursions available – whether that’s quad biking on the sand dunes or if you’re headed out on a boat party.
Cover up but give a little peek of that hot swimwear in a crochet women’s beach dress for days best spent on Kavos’s gorgeous beaches. Add an anklet for true I’m on holiday style – but save the tie dye sarong for another day. Team your summer beach dress with a one-piece, plunging swimsuit in a bold print for a totally effortless yet feminine look. Throw off the dress when you decide to jump into the water or when you chill poolside on that inflatable swan.

Sporty style on Nissi Beach, Cyprus
Ayia Napa rivals Ibiza when it comes to its party scene and nightlife but by day Nissi Beach is the place to hang. A sporty style is best when it comes to outfits for the beach here. You’ll look the part in a halter neck bikini and baseball cap while you and your girls crush that group of hungover lads at beach volleyball. Shots are on them later.
Playsuits and UV paint on Haad Rin beach, Koh Phangan
If you’re trekking round Thailand, a night at the Full Moon Party on the island of Koh Phangan is a must. Head down to the beach in a printed playsuit over your swimwear – you’re definitely going to end up in the ocean later. Then let the artists there decorate you with UV paint, ready for a night of dancing on the sand. Grab a sandcastle bucket full of booze, fill up at the food stands and Snapchat your mates at home to show them what they’re missing out on.
