5 Outfits for Your Next Beach Vacation

I don’t know about you, but a beach vacation sounds good 24/7, 365 days a year. Something about the sunshine, sand and the sound of the waves that creates a trifecta of bliss and perfection. Aside from those wonderful things the beach brings, I love the outfits that are inspired from the beach. Lots of linens, flowy dresses, sun hats and straw totes are all things I could wear every single day. And I know many of you love the beach scene too. Especially because after a year of being home-bound, going to the beach sounds like such a luxury. So I wanted to create a lookbook that includes curated outfits specifically for the beach. Below is a sneak peak of the lookbook where I included 5 outfits for your next beach vacation. Hopefully it makes it easy for you to check the packing task off your to-do list and be on your way to your tropical vacation!

I don’t think you can get away with packing for a beach vacation and not include a classic, white-linen maxi dress. I love this one because it’s lightweight and can easily transition from a beach coverup to running around, exploring the shops. To complete the look, add this fun, oversized beach bag and a straw sun hat. I love to braid my hair at the beach and add a scarf to the end to give it a more elevated look.

For an easy but put-together look for grabbing lunch at a restaurant or doing a little exploring on vacation, this look is a great option. I usually grab breezy neutral linen shorts, and pair it with a neutral top. You can also pair these shorts with a colorful, floral or other patterned top for a fun pop of color. This bow-back top has the most beautiful details in the back. Throw your hair in a ponytail if it’s hot and add a bow scarf to complete the look. Don’t forget your straw bag so that you can pack water, snacks and sunscreen! I rounded up the best summer straw bags here.

For a nice date night on the beach, pair a dainty floral dress with espadrilles and add a woven clutch. Keep your jewelry to a minimum and just stick to statement earrings! If it gets a little cool at night, add a denim jacket to this look or layer an oversized cream sweater over the top of this dress. Check out the many ways to style a denim jacket here.

You can’t take a beach trip without bringing along a fun pair of espadrilles! Pair them with this ultra comfortable tiered dress and canvas bag for a travel day or if you are going to be doing a lot of walking. To dress up the look a little, you can add a fun earring like this straw pair and oversized sunglasses. My favorite are these Karen Walker ones. If you are looking to try the look but for less check out this pair I found on Amazon! If you want to elevate the look even more, wear a fun summer lip color. I rounded up my favorite lip colors for summer in this post.

I love this last cute beach outfit because it’s honestly what I live in the most when we go to the beach. Grab a sweet little swimsuit like this floral tie top suit and pair it with a pink coverup, and you’re ready for some fun in the sun. I love this oversized towel and straw bag for the beach. There’s nothing better than a towel that stretches the entire length of your beach chair – IYKYK! The Tory Burch Cloud Millers are perfect to wear to the beach – so comfortable!

Kimono summer outfits

This look isn’t included in the lookbook. 😉 But I had to include in this post because Agolde denim shorts are a must to bring on your next tropical vacation. Their quality and comfort is unmatched to any other denim shorts, in my humble opinion, and will hold up for years to come. Pair a basic neutral tank with a long, colorful kimono and a straw hat for a great lunch outfit or for shopping around town. Another option would be to wear a white or cream one piece swimsuit with these denim shorts and the kimono. Then, you can go from the pool or the beach straight to lunch or shopping. No changing necessary!
