Make a splash.

Can you believe that it's already August? We, for one, can't. Despite the howling winds and threatening thunderstorms, our heads are still stuck in April, back when it was sunny, before news of the Delta variant broke out. Well, it looks like our beach plans will have to be put on hold for now, but that doesn't stop us (and fellow fashion girls) from stockpiling inspo on how to be among the best dressed. 

Routine scrolling has led us to the Instagram feed of Claudine Co, a 22-year-old lifestyle content creator. By the looks of it, she's an avid beachgoer and lover of fun, cheerful seaside outfits. You'll often spot her in halter or one-shoulder tops, printed bikinis, dark sunglasses, and bucket hats.

As is custom, we're rounding up our favorite looks from her. Our focus today: prints and patterns! 

Here, fresh ways to wear prints to the beach, as seen on vlogger Claudine Co: 

1. Toile and china are the next prints to watch. The Y2k side is currently favoring cow and zebra, but the boho-chic division's turning to the iconic Dior print and its chunkier variations.

2. A striped tie-dye dress should always make its way into your dedicated beach suitcase. Plus points if it's backless. It's easy to see why this is a fresh staple!

3. Here, we believe that bags are crucial to adding texture to an outfit. Claudine's black and red paisley bikini plus the woven accessories make an interesting combo, but unexpected is good. The wide brim sun hat really tied the look together!

4. Corsets and bucket hats made from flour sacks became a thing in 2020. Personally, we love it. The more audacious and sustainable a piece is, the better.

5. Monogram alert! Claudine's rocking a Dior bikini–Rei Germar has the exact same set!

6. Balance out a printed top with a linen skirt. It evens out the visual impact and keeps the whole ensemble beach-appropriate.

7. Is it just us, or are more people getting into florals lately? Here, Claudine keeps it dainty with a smocked watercolor bikini.

8. This Zimmermann swimsuit is one of a kind–there's really no forgetting that distinctive coral reef silhouette. Actually, if you look closer, you'll see that the ruffles are made of layered floral fabrics. So...is the maillot marine or garden-themed? You decide. All we know is that we love it.

9. The secret to mixing prints: Trust your gut. And if your gut tells you to mix garments from the same print family, definitely trust it. Not all mixed prints have to outrightly clash. In this case, Claudine pairs two garments with earthy mosaic motifs, and the result is pretty cohesive.

10. Same logic goes here! Her snake print bikini top only diverges in terms of colorway, which actually serves as a lovely focal point.
