You’ve worked hard all year long, waiting oh-so-patiently for your summer holiday to arrive. And now that it’s here, you aspire to stay in your swim gear for as long as possible, right? Finding the right bikini, however, is only half the struggle. Next comes the challenge of figuring out how to style it when you’re not actually in the water.

Luckily for you, Savoir Flair has style solutions for all your seaside shenanigans. Scroll down to see five flawless looks for the beach and beyond.

1

Into the Blue

Style a striped monokini with a wrap skirt and finish the look with a boxy crossbody bag, lace-up wedges, and drop earrings. An instant way of making your outfit look chic? Keep it tonal and opt for neutral and dusty shades like gray, tan, rose, and navy blue.

How Low Can You Go?

By pairing a sexy monokini with a pair of low-waist trousers, you will instantly transform your look from glamazon to cool-girl-at-the-beach. We approve.

Sun, Sea, and Sheer

A lightweight piece of clothing, such as a silk button-down shirt, is a cool way – both literally and figuratively – to cover up your swimsuit. Pair it with a sheer skirt to add a dose of chic to your ensemble, rounding things off with statement earrings and flat slip-ons. The result? A look that is perfect for lounging by the beach all day long.

Rainbow Connection

If you’re going for a lot of color, may we suggest going full speed ahead and playing up your technicolor swimwear with accessories aplenty to make it look even more alive? Nothing says, “I’m the life of the party,” like a bucket hat, chunky necklaces, colorful slides, and an oversized denim jacket with patches.

Skirting the Issue

A bandeau bikini top is a great canvas for an ultra-stylish beachside outfit. Transform it any way you want, but we’d suggest a look that’s classy with a bit of sass. Wear a neutral statement skirt with interesting details, gold jewelry, and messy, beachy waves.
