Our tropical climate may bring upon us unbearable heat throughout the year, but that also means we can book a flight to the beach any time we want. But, many beach bums know that packing for such a getaway isn't easy. Unlike packing for trips abroad that require layering (especially when winter requires coats that basically cover up your entire OOTD), beach trips require very minimum clothes that'll have to stand out on their own.
From bikinis, accessories, to breezy sundresses, we've collated all the celebrity OOTDs you need to see for a stylish, Instagram-ready beach wardrobe. Happy holidays!
Liz Uy suggests you bring a straw hat and a tiny handbag.
If you can't pile it on when you're in the beach, might as well let your accessories speak for themselves, right? Liz Uy looks totally chic in this large straw hat, which she paired with rust-colored coords. Plus, she's sporting the perfect beach bag that's small enough to fit your phone, sunblock, and your hotel room keys.
She also suggests you bring a statement swimsuit.
Leave it to Liz to make a leopard print swimsuit look totally fabulous on the beach. If you're not a fan of animal prints, you can pick out tropical prints instead.
You also need cool velcro sandals for your sandy adventures.
We've noticed that Liz sported these white velcro sandals as her go-to sandals, and it's genius. It's practical, comfy, and still chic. Think of it as a refresher pair from your typical Birkenstocks.
Laureen Uy suggests you bring classic blue beachwear.
Coincidentally in anticipation of 2020's color of the year, Laureen Uy favored a classic blue bikini during her trip to El Nido.
She also suggests you bring printed everything.
Aside from her brightly colored swimsuits, she also brought along coverups in equally eclectic prints! A great way to standout amongst the nude-colored garb of other beach denizens.
Oh, and a lot of bucket hats, too.
To shield her face from UV rays, Laureen donned bucket hats that are still in line with her streetwear aesthetic.
Sarah Lahbati makes a case for linen beach essentials.
The effortlessly ephemeral Sarah Lahbati looked to linen separates as her beach essential during her trip to El Nido with her family. We love her sand-colored linen coords and lounge pants! These pieces can take you from the shore to the beachside bar in style.
She also suggests you bring along fresh white separates.
A bright white OOTD always looks heavenly in the beach, but we love how Sarah chose cute babydoll shorts for an interesting touch.
A simple black one-piece swimsuit is also key.
If you're pretty chill when it comes to your beach wardrobe and would much rather blend in with the crowd as you cozy up in a cabana, then go for neutral-colored swimsuits. A black one-piece is a classic you can never go wrong with!
Jessy Mendiola says you need dainty dresses.
Hands down, this white dress was Jessy Mendiola's favorite piece from her entire holiday wardrobe (as evidenced by her many photos on the gram!). Aside from being totally Instagrammable, a dainty white dress is breathable and dressy enough to take you to poolside dinner after an afternoon swim.
Sunny coords also make for easy style.
Another OOTD that Jessy loved were her sunny yellow coords that comprised of a cropped top and a tiered tea-length skirt.
Mari Jasmine suggests you haul all your beach accessories.
Is it fine to wear accessories to the beach? Hell yeah. Mari Jasmine is a perfect study in beachwear accessorizing as her looks aren't fashion overkill—she chooses minimalist accessories like gold rings and spruces up her outfit through sea-themed finds like her earrings and hat.
She also thinks warm-toned separates are cool.
Mari also proves that you can be a little dressy in the beach. Case in point: She adds a touch of color to a linen button-down with rust-colored pants and a fabulous wide-brimmed hat.
Kylie Verzosa suggests you turn up the red hue.
Leave it to Kylie to slay her beach OOTDs! In Cebu, the pageant queen opted for fire engine-red separates like her bikini and floral printed sundress.
Maja Salvador suggests you go for light hues.
The actress kept things simple yet fresh through white bikinis (paired with a sarong) and a pastel blue gingham dress that'll definitely look great in all your photos with the big blue sea as your backdrop!
