WHAT TO WEAR: At the Beach

What to Wear

It’s prime tanning weather, and you and your friends decide to hit the beach. Between sporting the trendiest bikini to donning the perfect cover-up, dressing for the beach may become stressful. But take a deep breath, the trend for this beach season is carefree and chic.

This Fashionista is rocking the perfect garb for a day of soaking up the sun. I caught her walking down the beach on Lake Michigan going to join a group of her friends. Her navy, cotton and polkadot romper is a crucial component to her beach ready look. Rompers are so versatile and easy to slip in and off when running around all day. The platform Birkenstocks not only give her some height, but they also amplify and boost the look as a whole. Trendy sandals are a key accessory to any outfit, and pivotal for romping around on the sand.

Her vintage fanny pack is absolute perfection. Fanny packs for the beach are not necessarily a traditional accessory or a must-have for beach wear. However, I am loving the curve ball this Fashionista has thrown. Opposed to carrying around a huge tote, she swapped the norm for something more accessible and unique. Her fanny pack is a bit larger than normal, which is good for carrying more items.

Mirroring this Fashionista’s look will ensure a day of fun in the sun. With the combination of an adorable romper, statement sandals and a fun fanny pack, you will most definitely kill it. Her easygoing look is fierce and sassy.

One Simple Change: Rock a pair of shades to polish off the look. The look will be complete, and suitable when matched with an amazing pair of sunglasses. Examples may include but are not limited to are some cat eyes, or oval shaped glasses!
