What To Wear To The Beach

Nantucket, MA

Summer is here and I wanted to share my favorite swimsuits, sarongs, sandals, and sun hats. Most of my favorite beach items have been on rotation for years and years. This hat is the only straw hat you need – it’s a splurge, but the absolute perfect shape! Zimmermann bikinis are my go-to swimwear of choice – I love the fit, the prints, and the little details they always include. Without further ado, the best items to wear to the beach…

What To Wear To The Beach

Best Swimsuits

This L*Space bikini is by far the best white balconette top I own. It’s so flattering and adjustable. It sells out quickly, but this one is similar. I have this Bond Eye two piece in black and red – it’s one size fits all, so stretchy and the fabric is amazinggggg. I also have it in a one piece – which is SO sexy. Another one piece I have is this Hunza G one. It’s a similar stretchy/crinkly fabric to the Bond Eye one (TBH I like the Bond Eye one more.) You can never go wrong with Missoni bikinisCettire has so many good ones on major sale! Like I said above, Zimmermann swimsuits are beautiful, and I always find the best ones at Nordstrom, Revolve or The Outnet. Eyeing this one, this one, this one and this one.

Best Sandals

These Stuart Weitzman pearl sandals are a dream….they’re SO comfy. I also love a simple TKEES flip flop.

Best Coverups

This white shirtdress is such a classic beach dress/coverup. I’m obsessed with a Missoni tunic dress for the beach or pool. I love this white Melissa Odabash pom pom coverup – it lays really beautifully when you tie it at the corner of your hip. I recently bought a few of these Etsy sarongs – and am SO impressed with the quality and price point. I got the 10 pack for wedding guest gifts. These are my go-to denim shorts (also here), but I’m eyeing this pair under $45. If you’re looking for a coverup under $20 – I have this one in black and white. And if you want a coveurp/dress you can slip on and head to lunch or drinks after – this is a great LBD.

Best Sun Hats

Like I mentioned above, this Janessa Leone straw hat is 100% worth the investment. This one with a ribbon is really cute, and a baseball hat always looks really good too.

Best Straw Totes

The one in this photo is from By Tatoufa. Another straw bag I’ve been using a ton this summer is this one with brown leather handles. These mini personalized straw totes are really fun and so are the pom pom ones.
