Whether you laze on a lounger sipping a margarita or splash around enjoying the waves, we can all agree that days spent at the beach are the most enjoyable. But what is the right outfit to ensure you feel comfortable, confident and look your best? Here is our guide to what fashionistas wear to the beach.

Visor hat

A classic straw hat may have been our beachside favourite for years so try changing it up and wearing a visor instead. Spotted on the fashionistas of Instagram, this headwear feels far more unexpected, sportier and cool.

Add high-waisted shorts and a straw circle bag to create an up-to-date summer look.

One piece swimsuit

A simple one piece swimsuit is a versatile summertime garment which can also be worn as a top if you plan to leave the beach for a trip to a restaurant for a short break from the sun.

Pair with a denim skirt and you simply cannot go wrong.

Button-down shirt

A classic button shirt is an understated classic, and is the perfect beachside top to easily change into and out of. Exuding easy and simple elegance, pair with accessories for a glamorous vibe, and opt for a hair scarf for the retro look that many fashionistas are sporting in the sunshine.

Kimono

A lightweight kimono or robe is an ideal cover-up at the pool or beach. Available in a variety of colours, patterns and fabrics, a kimono is perfect to show off your summer outfit while providing some coverage when you need it.

Try adding some slide-on sandals and slouchy trousers for a real summer vibe without looking overdressed.

Maxi dresses

Making their mark during the 1970, the maxi dress is the easiest summertime garment of all.

Moving on from its bohemian roots, the maxi dress is both effortlessly sophisticated and loosely breathable, providing comfort and style. Browse the collections of labels such as axparis.com/collections/maxi-dresses to find your perfect maxi dress.

Dress this look up with an embellished bag, sandals and plenty of jewellery.

Sarong

Sarongs were designed for the beach, and are essential if you are heading down to a coastal locale or attending a pool party this summer.

They are easy to adjust and style to suit your outfit. Try wearing with a crop top for an instant, stylish summer look.
