Summer is officially here—we’ve made it through a winter of wearing the comfortable leggings, bundling up in the warmest coats, and even welcomed the warm slippers back into our wardrobe repertoire. But now it’s time to usher in the newfound energy of the summer season in all its glory, from warmer temperatures and longer days in the sun to swimsuits, summer bags, and of course, beach outfits.
Thankfully, today’s beach looks have evolved beyond the basic bikini and cover-up. Whether it’s a beach sarong that can double as a mini skirt when paired with a strappy sandal, or a low-back one-piece swimsuit that can be worn as a bodysuit with wide-leg pants, beach essentials have become an integral part of everyday style. This season is all about pairing your new summer fashion finds with your go-to summer capsule wardrobe pieces. And most importantly, the best beach outfits of 2021 are meant to be fun—think bold, bright-colored accessories and dramatically oversized straw hats.
Behold the effortlessly cool look of the summer: a bandeau bikini styled with a high-waisted, loose-fitting trouser. The best part? You can repeat this look hundreds of times with different colors, fabrics, and of course, accessories. Opt for a classic look with subtle hints of gold jewelry like a medium-sized hoop earring and dainty choker necklace. Now all you need is a beach towel.
Beach Kaftan Outfit
Just because beach dressing has evolved does not mean the classic kaftan cover-up is no longer in style—it just got the minimalist makeover. Pair the oversized kaftan with a strappy sandal, rectangular acetate sunglass, and chunky gold jewelry to complete the look.
Any casual dress is a beach dress. Barefoot and beautiful, you are ready to stroll by the ocean. The best option for this look is a maxi flowy dress from a light and breathable fabric. You will stay stylish and won’t be hot at the same time!
High-Waisted Denim Shorts
Whether you pair shorts with sneakers and a t-shirt or a blazer and heeled sandals, jean shorts are pretty versatile, making for quite the effortless summertime uniform to be dressed up or down. For something simple yet classic, a-line shaped shorts with finished hems feel polished while also nodding to the ’90s mom short. While distressed cut-offs feel just right slipped on with a bikini top for a day at the beach.
