Go from high street to surf with these beach-ready summer looks.
Bold, daring and sizzling — summer styles this year debut bold colour combinations, shoulder-baring tie-dye dresses, and audacious accessories. We’re seeing dresses made out of tie-dye fabrics but in cuts and styles that won’t look out of place at a romantic beachside cafe and topped off with a chic rope belt and casually knotted scarf.
The Silk Road
Scarves, whether made out of silk or any other delicate fabric, are all the rage right now. Cinch one around the waist as a makeshift belt, draw one tightly around the neck as a choker, or — in the case of larger scarves — drape one around the shoulders as a faux beach robe.
In a 90s revival, flatforms are back — but refreshed for 2016. Think chunky soles with everything from lace up espadrilles to boat-shoe inspired sandals, as seen here. The bold colour adds a playful touch to an ensemble that would look equally at home on a yacht or on the sidewalk.
Brimmed hats are also here to stay with contemporary fashion designers sending a huge array of them down the Spring/Summer 2016 runways. They come in all shapes, sizes and textures but we’re loving this classic wide brimmed straw hat that provides ample shade.
When it comes to handbags and other accessories, this is the year for shades that bring to mind a tropical sunset — shades such as pale blush and coral. The other handbag trend to look out for in 2016 are bags with top handles, carried at the elbow.
And oh, if you’re hitting the water, then say goodbye to teensy, weensy bikinis! This season’s hottest swim silhouette is the longline bikini top: retro-glam but updated with colourful prints and playful cut-outs. Pair with colourful skirt-shorts for a look that is both beach friendly and almost painfully hip.
