Put away your sarongs and try these celeb-approved beachwear and be a bit more experimental with your swimsuit and cover-up pairings. It's an essential move if you need to pack light in the midst of an OOTD-laden beach weekend! To make the most of your outfits, it would be wise to double the use of each article of clothing. Not sure where to start? Below are 10 celebrity looks you can cop to look chic all summer long.
1. Printed top
Lovi Poe takes the polka print to the beach for a fun spin on a solid-colored bikini top. The best part is that you don't even have to purchase a new piece to copy Lovi's cover-up trick. All you need to do is to grab a printed polo from your closet and pair it with a bright bikini top. Keep the buttons open, tie it at the bottom, and you're good to go!
2. White cropped tee
Nadine Lustre proves just how hardworking a plain white tee can be. See how Nadine's square cut neckline with an open button at the top accentuates her décolletage. With this top, you can opt to wear it buttoned up or completely open for an undone look on the beach.
3. Wide leg pants
Camille Co's printed wide leg pants take her one-piece suit from beach to brunch-ready in an instant.
Bea Marin's making a case for denim as summer cover-ups. Ditch the daisty dukes and opt for an oversized jacket or high-waisted denim bottoms to add streetstyle edge to your beach looks.
5. Textured dress
Kimi Juan and Georgina Wilson demonstrate how texture can bring your summer whites to life. You can opt to style your black bikini with a crochet dress to look subtly sexy or you can go for a swimsuit close to your skin tone like Georgina to highlight the dress itself.
6. Linen skirt
Kelsey Merritt will convince you to opt for linen. It's a light, airy, and very breathable fabric with a laidback vibe that easily translates into beachwear.
7. Tie top
Rachel Peters has figured out the wonders of a tie top. It has a relaxed silhouette that will elongate your torso without covering too much skin.
8. Wrap skirts
If you're stumped on what to pair with your frilly bikini tops, Marie Lozano has the solution: wrap skirts! They're easy to put on and take off in between frolicking in the sea and cooling down with a drink in hand.
9. Button-down shirt
Laureen Uy and Jess Wilson are taking officewear to a whole new level. Button-downs are the last thing you'd think of when you're in need of a swimsuit cover-up. But after seeing these two girls, we're totally reconsidering! Wear it tied, cuffed, loose or tied. Whatever you choose, you'll look effortlessly chic.
