Mykonos, Ibiza or somewhere in the Caribbean? Wherever in the world, seaside destinations call for a colorful fun wardrobe that performs well in sunshine. We recommend amazing separates and dresses to wear to a seaside restaurant or beach bar for lunch, dinner, or sunset cocktails. Spaghetti straps, off-the-shoulder silhouettes, crochet stunners, and cheery prints are part of the scene. You can layer underneath your bikini or single-piece swimwear for pool-time entertainment. Go with the flirty side of things and dance to the dj tunes!
Your looks need to be practical and stunning. A little girly detail or a spirited motif will get lots of attention by people sunbathing on the beach. If you are inspired by the nautical culture, try this gorgeous Tory Burch V-Neck Tie Detail Pier Dress. For a sexier, loungewear feel, all you need to pack is this tropical 90s-style Cinq à Sept Emmalyn Floral-Print Silk Midi Slip Dress. Minimalists will also adore the charming nature of this nonchalant Theory Nayline Elevate Crepe Halter Dress.
They might be caftans or cropped tops or just off-the-shoulder blouses. Try them on in light fabrics and bold motifs. Mix them with shorts, bermudas, or sarongs. Our first favorite is the Marissa Webb Leona Off-the-Shoulder Printed Top for effortless chic looks. Make a bohemian twist with this ultra-hot Zadig & Voltaire Time Lace-Up Ruffled Jac Top. On the deck of a yacht for evening drinks you can also wear this dreamy Zadig & Voltaire Cami Lace Camisole.
There are certain pieces that are sure bets when it comes to island vacay wardrobe. Certain designers are known for their amazing prints of graphic allure. The fabrics are simple and casual – ideal for the summer – yet the visuals are stunning. Think for example this playful Alice + Olivia Nella Striped Button-Front Mini Dress or the Alice + Olivia Adrianna Rainbow Print Wrap Mini Dress. Barefoot and make-up free, you can be equally mesmerizing in this Diane von Furstenberg Carrington Stripe Pacific Long-Sleeve Floor-Length Shirtdress.
For a worry-free total look, the romper is your best asset. It comes in wonderful colors and with fun elements such as little frills or a wrap front. From the master of the 70s, get this timeless Diane von Furstenberg Diamond Squares Small Meyer Print Crossover Romper. With an exotic touch, this Alice + Olivia X Angelica Hicks Macall Ruffle Romper will make waves. Try also the daring silhouette of this sensational Rebecca Taylor Cherry Blossom Print Silk Romper.
Dress up your T-shirts with sophisticated shorts that exude a romantic or retro aura. They fit a pool party occasion and they work with all kinds of tops. Lace-lovers will go either for the Alice + Olivia Marisa Lace Inset Linen Blend Shorts or for the Maje Ianis Guipure Lace Shorts. If the tops you packed for vacay are completely neutral, make them look even more interesting with these Alice & Olivia Striped Cotton-Blend Jacket & Shorts.
