A Day At The Beach With Delia’s
July 17, 2014
Despite the fact that it’s already midsummer, there are plenty of beach days still at your disposal, which means sand, salty water and sunshine are likely to surround you in your near future. Personally, I’ve never found myself on an east coast beach, but as a girl who has been born and raised in a beach town in Southern California, I know a little something about beach style. While a pair of running shorts and an oversized tank top may seem ideal, I would suggest going another direction. The beach, or at least the ones I am accustomed to, is its own fashion playground. With its unique style and laidback essence, dressing up for the beach can be just as important as dressing up for a night out. If you’re having a hard time putting together an outfit for a day in the sun, Chippmunk and Delia’s are here to help. With this online superstore’s assistance, I’ve managed to find a great outfit that will yield maximum comfort while turning heads. The most important part of this look is obviously your swimsuit, as you will be spending the majority of your time rocking just this. I’m a fan of the Pretty Floral Stripe Dot Twist Bandeau Bikini Top
in white multi, $15. The light colors and mix and match prints are girly and fun. The strap is in place to allow for play time without worry, but can be removed when trying to minimize tan lines. Plus, this top is reversible, and who doesn’t love a two in one? For your bottoms, some like the cohesive look, in which case you should simply buy the matching bottoms: Pretty Floral Stripe Dot Banded Hipster Bikini Bottom
in multi, $15. If you’re anything like me, you prefer to be a little more experimental. I would go for the Solid Banded Hipster in navy or grape, $15
. These two darker colors will contrast well with your lighter printed top. I love the cutout detailing on the side to add some character. And, a pair of solid bottoms like these can go with just about any swimsuit top around. You’ll definitely need a cover-up to go with this adorable swimsuit pair. It’s not tasteful to walk to and from and the beach in just your bathing suit. I understand, however, that it will be warm, so something light and airy is necessary. I suggest the Solid Crochet-Trim Romper in ivory, $45
. This look speaks minimum effort, and it’s breezy and comfortable. The crochet trim adds a little bit of detail, making this piece a great staple in your closet. Pair it with a colored pair of sandals like the Genna Sandal
in blue multi, $10. This light blue will go well with your swimsuit and will add an essential pop of color when you decide to throw on the romper. And with that, you are ready for a day at the beach. You’ll look cute, comfy, and relaxed, which is just what you need.
