We have access to our favorite place everyday. Whether near or far away from its sandy shoreline, we can capture the mood of the beach for ourselves solely through our closets and wardrobes.
The textures, styles and weight of the fabrics we wear can all speak to that beach-born carefree spirit. Thoughtfully curating our closets means a beach day is all in the outfit.
With our Summer Style Guide, your seasonal must-haves are at your fingertips.
A KIMONO COVER UP Breathe linens, cottons and classic swimwear into your summer mix. BECASA’s Dolce Vita Kimono (see photo) is truly a dip into the good life — classy and Riviera-chic. A beautiful kimono like this one can tie any look together, from the beach to dinner out and everywhere in between. It’s easy to wear draped over the shoulders — or tied around the waist for a structured yet flowy look.
WHITE LINEN BASICS For a pool or beach-side look, pop on a pair of linen gaucho or palazzo pants over your swimwear. Snug at your high-waist, this hi-rise style pant gives natural shape but keeps a soft, relaxed mood. Stick with a neutral color bottom to show off your swimsuit, straw tote or an interesting pair of sunglasses.
LEATHER SANDALS Strappy sandals are a summer classic. This year, skip the warm brown leathers and move toward lighter, brighter tones. An ivory or tanned leather sandal will go with everything, particularly your summer whites— cottons, linens and dresses.
A WOVEN PALM HAT Find a go-to palm hat for the summer — with a heavier weave; this time-tested style provides ample sun protection while making a fashion statement. At the beach or with a sundress, a sharp palm hat even provides attractive face-shaping. Look for one with a snug sweatband for fit and a higher crown for breathability. Plan to style your hair in a low bun for a great silhouette.
NEUTRAL SWIMWEAR Ditch your black swimwear for the summer and swap them out for updated neutrals that are just as flattering — rich brown, hazelnut, greys and even white. You’ll enjoy pairing these swimsuits with the lighter, playful colors of your cover-ups and sarongs. Take a chance on a new color.
