Sounds like a no brainer, but you’ll be surprised at the amount of people swimming in just tees and shorts! While there’s nothing wrong with it, it’s always better to swim in a proper bathing suit. They fully protect your skin, and generally provide easier movement. Besides, with the evolution of swimwears - bikinis, monokinis, long-sleeved suits - there’s sure to be a suitable piece for everyone. You’ll look stylish and comfortable swimming in the ocean.
#2 Beach Kaftans
Or basically, any beach cover-ups. They come in different styles now! From maxi kaftans to sheer ones, just pick whichever that you feel the most comfortable in. Now, some of you might be wondering: why can’t I just wear a plain old t-shirt? Well, of course you can wear your favourite tee. Kaftans just typically have a lighter material, and compliments your beachwear perfectly.. But ultimately, you do you!

What is better than sneakers? A shoe that has the look of a sneaker, but feels more lightweight. Espadrilles! (No hate towards sneakers, though) Besides the weight factor, espadrilles are perfect because they protect your feet from sand a lot better than sandals, and are easier to slip in and out of! They also add a casual touch to your beach vibe. They’re perfect for when you’re done with swimming at the beach and want to go for a stroll by the town.

We know the drill, always wear sunscreen before you head out the door. This rings true especially on the beach! But often we forget to protect our heads too. Too much sun (no matter how fun it is) may give you dizziness and damage your hair. To avoid risks, bring your hat along (brownie points if you bring a floppy hat) with your other essentials and you’re good to go!
