Now don’t get us wrong. While we’re still major fans of the little black dresses/jumpsuit/sliders serving all the looks in our summer wardrobes, there’s something about jetting off on holiday that makes us want to wear all the colour. Ready to get on board? From citrus shades and cool corals to dreamy sea blues, here are the five bright beach looks we’re loving right now.
1. Watermelon Wonder
Carrying a watermelon is *so* 1987. Turn your fave Dirty Dancing quote into an Insta-ready reality with so-fresh shades of green and pink – like this sun dress and bikini combo. Add an extra squeeze of SS18 with a woven bag and silver sandals.
2. Mellow Yellow
Gen Z yellow has been on our radar since the start of SS18 and we’re very much here for it finding its place in our getaway wardrobes. Get hyped over the hottest hue of the season with a babein’ bikini that’s guaranteed to set your Insta feed on fire, ticking off another two trends with ruffles and a one-shoulder neckline. So fresh.
3. Blue Wave
Dreamy destinations = the only reason we’d ever want to blend into the background. Copy the cloudless skies in a cool blue maxi dress, topped with tile prints and tassels for that stand-out touch. Make the palette pop with a coral bikini (as seen on Laura from Love Island, fyi), complementing its blush-toned hues with rose gold accessories.
4. Rainbow Mood
If you’re not one to do things by halves then all-out rainbow stripes is the certified trend of your summer vacay. Go for so-extra sun dresses with bold blocks of colour (bonus if they come with a bit of sparkle) that are perfect for throwing on over your bikini or styling up for the bar with a pair of tassel earrings. Hashtag no filter needed.
5. Life Aquatic
How to wear colour without going OTT? Stand out without shouting with a swish swimsuit in crush-worthy colours of aquamarine and coral (those embroideries though), paring it back with a crisp white shirt for relaxed beach vibes. Finish with acrylic sunglasses and metallic sliders for ultimate poolside cool.
