YOUR SUMMER-AT-THE-BEACH OUTFIT
By Sam Higgins, 27 June 2017
If you’re lucky enough to live by the coast or simply looking to escape to the beach this summer, you’re going to need some suitable steez. Not to worry, we’ve got just the kit to help you stay stylish – even with sand between your toes.
Unlike summer in the city or countryside, a sunny day at the beach requires limited layering – therefore it’s even more important to make up for that by ensuring each piece makes a statement. So, when you’re not soaking up some vitamin D with your top off, pop on a red and blue, retro-striped tee and wear it with some navy swimming shorts that cut before the knee. This summer's favourite – the revere-collared, statement shirt – is perfect for when the sun starts to set and, left open, will create a strong, on-trend print clash.
Then, it’s all about the accessories to keep you safe-yet-stylish in the sun. Some adidas sliders with towelling bring an added touch of comfort, while a dusty-blue cap and some round sunnies are seasonal essentials. A cross-body bag is perfect for keeping any extra bits safe, but (sadly) the bat and ball will have to travel separately.
