A beach OOTD doesn't begin and end with a swimsuit. (Well, unless you want it to, of course. In that case, go for it!) If you're a fashion girl through and through, you'll surely manage to add a 'lil something to your seaside garb. Take Maja Salvador, for instance. Her super-chill, subtly sultry ensembles will have you craving a beachside cocktail, stat!
Take a look at some of the chicest 'fits we'll surely steal from her—once we can go to the beach again, that is!
1. White bodysuit + crocheted cover-up
While you're waiting for the sky to brighten up before you take a dip, stroll by the waves in a crocheted cover-up! It's warm enough to keep you cozy, but the open stitches will allow you to enjoy the breeze.
2. Sheer lace robe + bikini + sunnies + ornamental flower
This adorable outfit combo is picture-perfect! You can wear flower clips or even real flowers to accessorize. (But if you're that committed to recreating this photo, you can try and slip on some mini parasols!) It's quirky, yes, but it'll get the job done.
3. Off-shoulder linen blend gingham dress
Gingham dresses with smocked bodices are profoundly trendy at the moment. For this beach lewk, Maja traded in the popular puff sleeve and square neck combo for a dreamy off-shoulder cut. We recommend this for breezier, sunless afternoons spent lounging seaside. On sunnier days, this dress might give you a disastrous tan line!
4. Bikini top + relaxed paperbag shorts + layered accessories
Need to hop out of the water to a) join a game of sand volleyball, or b) head to the pavillion for a snack? Reach for a pair of loose short shorts to wear over your bikini! Stacking seashell necklaces and gold chains will add a bit of flair.
5. Printed one-piece + woven sun hat
This look is a feast for the eyes! Wear your most artsy printed swimsuit with a wide sun hat. Bonus: The woven hat strains sunlight so beautifully. It'll make an aesthetic post on IG for sure!
6. Scalloped black bikini + oversized white button-down + gold hoop earrings
That scalloped edging really, really makes a difference, doesn't it? The way it elevated an otherwise basic black bikini is amazing! And that oversized white BTD (well, Maja's wearing a hotel robe, but it sure looks like a button-down), makes the look even more crisp.
7. Breezy white linen blend co-ords + stacked necklaces
The color white is a beach babe's ultimate weapon. That said, Maja's tie crop top and asymmetrical wrap skirt form the cleanest, most summer-ready tandem! Since the top is V-necked, the rounded necklaces create depth and levels. So lovely!
8. Color matched bodysuit + midi skirt with slit
Looks like Maja has another scalloped swimsuit! This time, it's in a forest green color, and it's paired with an apple green skirt. Here's what we noticed, though: If you finished this look with strappy heels, you could get away with wearing it to a romantic dinner. You've got to love how versatile swimsuits can be.
