Cute Beach Clothes for Women

Written by: Niki Landry




Lets start from the top. No makeup and a bad hair day, not a problem. Throw on sunglasses and a hat and you will look instantly pulled together. Nothing completes a beach outfit quite like a hat. Bonus, it’s functional too. Keep the sun off your face, your hair under control, and show off your style.


To pack ultra-light, check out these packable hats!







Combine the high waist cut of this bikini bottom with the color block trend in this glamorous swimsuit. The gathered sides of the bottom along with the vertical blocking create a slimmer silhouette. Perfect for lounging poolside with your best friends sipping on fruity drinks.


We’re currently obsessed with these swimsuits and cover ups for summer!



Cover Up




A cover up is the perfect way to maximize your travel wardrobe. For maximum options, choose cute beach clothes that you can wear on and off the sand. Select one that you can wear to the beach and can also double as a day dress. This simple cut with a ruffled hem will look lovely flouncing in the wind. Combine with a long necklace and stylish sandals for a night out.

Shorts and Crop




If a crop top is appropriate anywhere, it is definitely the beach. A loose breezy bottom and crop top is a nice stylish combo for activities on the sand. Keeping you cool, on trend, and comfortable. These pattern shorts are also a great addition to your travel wardrobe. They pack easily and can double as sleep shorts.

Off shoulder tops and dresses are very popular for the summer. The loose breezy silhouettes are so comfortable in the heat, and they show just enough skin. This little number above would make a perfect dress for any activity, and the color looks great with a golden tan making it a great addition to our list of cute beach clothes for women.

A fine woven towel is a perfect accessory for the beach. Many people just grab what’s in the linen closet, but a nice towel is a luxury. Bring along a soft absorbent Turkish towel which will easily roll up into a packing cube for your next vacation . The stripes and tassels are great details, and this one would look brilliant wrapped around you while you dry.

Your outfit isn’t complete without a great pair of shoes to top off your cute beach clothes. Even though they are super practical, I’m a little tired of flip-flops. I’ve been wearing these slips-ons when I want a simplistic look. They would work well at the beach, and are better looking than plastic flip fiops.




I also love these metallic huarache sandals. They match with every outfit, and are stylish without adding a heel. I would wear them shopping and exploring beach towns. The ankle strap is a good feature when walking for long periods of time.

A beach vacation is the perfect trip to unwind, relax, and enjoy the company of your family or friends. Just because you are relaxing, doesn’t mean you can’t look great as well. A little effort will have you looking fashionable and refreshed in your post-vacay photos.
