It’s that time of year when so many of us are spending more time at the beach and pool, and if you’re one of the lucky ones, maybe you’re even staying down at the beach for a week or two to make the most of the warm weather.
To help you prep for those vacay vibes, we have created a list of essentials you need for your summer break.
This one is an obvious one if you plan on spending any time in or near water this summer. There are so many amazing options available this season whether you prefer a two-piece or a one-piece and there is definitely something to suit your personal style and budget. No one loves shopping for a swim, so we have done the hard work for you. Just remember, if you have a body, then you already have a beach body.
White Linen Shirt
Aside from being an easy piece to style back with jeans and shorts or layer over a dress, the linen shirt is also perfect for wearing as a cover-up to the beach. Wear unbuttoned as a jacket for lounging by the water and keeping UV rays at bay.
Growing up in Australia, it is ingrained in us from a young age to Slip Slop Slap. While many of us are still somewhat scarred from “No Hat, No Play” mandates from primary school, there are so many styles of hat available to us now, that you can definitely look stylish whilst blocking out those rays. Whether it’s a cap, a fedora or a wicker visor there is a style to suit everyone this summer.
No one wants to compromise their summer sandals with water and sand, so we recommend opting for a gorgeous pool slide instead. The pool slide is an upgrade to standard thongs but serves the same functionality in being durable, and comfortable perfect for a beach romp.
When you need a break from the sunshine and take your beach look to the bar, a chic throw-on dress is a great option. We love a colourful kaftan or slinky maxi for effortless vibes. Team this look back with a basket bag, pool slides and some seriously salty waves.
Finally, you need some chic beach accessories to up your seaside game. A great beach towel is always a must, as is a gorgeous straw bag to store all of your essentials in. To level up, you might opt for a comfy beach pillow to prop up your neck and make reading your summer book club pick more enjoyable. A beach umbrella is also a great way to create some shade from the harsh Australian, and with so many gorgeous designs available, you will be living your Sicilian White Lotus fantasy in no time.
