What To Wear On A Beach Holiday: 7 Outfit Ideas

What To Wear On A Beach Holiday: 7 Outfit Ideas

Beach holidays should be about chilling, soaking up the sun and getting stuck into that book you picked up at the airport, and the last thing we want to do is stress about what we’re packing. So, when you're trying to plan what to wear on a beach holiday,  take a breath, relax, and let us do the packing for you (metaphorically, at least).

The Fierce Two Piece

We’re going to assume that for a beach holiday, you already had swimwear on the list. But just in case you were double-checking and had space for one more, you can’t go wrong with this fierce two-piece. Made from ECONYL® regenerated nylon, it’s more resistant to sun cream, chlorine and oils, so it’ll look fabulous for longer. And, of course, we love the hand-drawn leopard print. For a glam look that protects you from the sun, throw on an oversized sun hat and sunglasses to finish the outfit.

The Statement Swimsuit

Being able to switch between bikinis and swimsuits is always a must for any beach holiday, as you can never have too much choice. That’s why a piece like our Neema Swimsuit, with its standout print clash is a fab option. You get the best of both prints in one piece, with a gorg’ tie-waist that was made to flatter and adjustable straps for a secure fit. And, just like our bikini, it’s made from ECONYL® regenerated nylon, a material sourced from waste like fishing nets and fabric scraps, to create something stunning out of waste that would otherwise pollute the earth. All you have to do is add a statement straw sun-hat and catch some rays.

The Bold Kaftan Dress

You could pack a sarong, but when the cover-up looks like this, we don’t think there’s much competition. The mood-boosting lime leopard print was made to make you feel good, and the pull-on design means it’s perfect for throwing on over your bikini when you’re travelling to and from the beach. It also doubles up as a dress thanks to the light fabric, so if you don’t have time to get changed post-swim, this kaftan makes sure you look fabulous. Just grab an oversized basket to carry all your things and throw on a pair of chunky sliders before heading to the beach.

The Laidback Matching Set

One thing we love about beach holidays? The slow mornings & lie-ins. Take your time getting up and getting ready to just enjoy the milder morning temperature and put on some comfies. This soft, organic cotton set is perfect for lounging thanks to the elasticated waist and wide-leg style, and the tie top adds a little something extra to your look. So whether your morning plans are coffee on the balcony or brunch overlooking the sea, this set does both.

The Chic Co-ord

When it comes to beach holidays, effortlessly stylish pieces are key. You want your outfits to say, “Oh, this? Yeah, I just threw this on after lounging on the beach all day”. It’s all about easy, re-wearable pieces with classic lines and statement details. That’s why we love this organic cotton set. Not only is it light and airy, perfect for keeping you cool, the coordinated cream colour always looks classy (and you’ll look more tanned). Both pieces have a chic, relaxed fit, but it’s the open twist back that really elevates your post-beach look and makes it perfect for wearing to the bar after. Add a hair scarf and woven handbag for the finishing touch, and you’re good to go.

The Floaty Jumpsuit

Just because we’re spending all day sunbathing doesn’t mean that’s ALL we’re doing. Everyone loves that post-beach, fresh out of the shower, getting ready for the evening feeling, so to keep the good vibes going, you’ll need a feel-good jumpsuit. Minimal effort, maximum style, all you have to do is throw this piece on and accessorise. The wide, floaty legs create a relaxed silhouette that’s perfect for late-night dining, and you can tailor the fit thanks to the wide sash belt and adjustable straps. Our hand-drawn palm print looks fabulous with gold jewellery, so go wild!

The Late Night Dress

Whether you’re heading out for cocktails, a late dinner (European style) or are having a couple drinks at the hotel bar, this gorgeous dress is an easy winner. The fitted shape and statement open-back with a tie-detail is sure to turn heads, and we love the fun odd dot print for a standout style. Our Sabrina Dress is perfect for hazy summer nights, as it’s made from a light and breathable viscose. Keep the styling low-key with simple sandals and gold hoop earrings to let the dress do the talking, or go all out with wedges, oversized earrings and a woven handbag to finish the look.
