Cute Beach Clothes for Women

Written by: Niki Landry

Whether it’s vibrant swimsuits, casual shorts, light dresses, or those essential flip-flops, beach clothing is all about embracing the carefree, relaxed vibe of the shore.



Fashionable Beachwear for Ladies




Wallaroo Victoria Fedora Sun Hat




Let’s 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, and your hair under control, and show off your style.


Find out why Wallaroo is THE most popular sun hat voted by TFG readers in this review!




Charlie Textured Bralette Bikini Top | Dylan Textured Hipster Bottom




If you’re hoping to get a good tan on your trip, opt for a bikini! The Maxswim Charlie bikini top and bottoms are a particular TFG fave for their wide size range, the perfect amount of support and adjustability, and super stylish look. Plus, they’re actually cute and sexy, too!

Eddie Bauer Hemplify Swim Coverup | Sizes XS-XXL


Cover Up


A coverup 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 Eddie Bauer Hemplify versatile swim coverup is naturally breathable and feels soft against your skin! You can pair it with leggings for another great look!

Floerns Plus Size 2 Piece Kimono Set | Sizes L-4XL


Shorts and Crop


Talk about fun in the sun! These pretty floral Floerns plus size two-piece outfits shine. The kimono top adds an elegant, flowing element while pairing it with a crop top and shorts creates a stylish and comfortable look for a day by the shore. It’s versatile, allowing you to easily transition from the beach to a casual seaside lunch or stroll.

A loose breezy kimono and a crop top is a nice stylish combo for activities on the sand. Keeping you cool, on-trend, and comfortable. These linen shorts are also a great addition to your travel wardrobe. They pack easily and can double as sleep shorts.




Columbia Freezer III Dress | Sizes XS-3X




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. The Columbia’s Freezer III dress is made of a technical fabric that’s cooling, stretchy, moisture-wicking, and has UPF 30 sun protection, the design is super feminine and stylish, so it’ll easily double as a going-out dress! 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.

Smyrna Turkish Cotton Beach Towel




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


These are our tried and tested reader recommendations for the world’s best travel shoes!




Olukai Perforated Gray Slip-on Sneaker




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 slip-ons when I want a simplistic look. They would work well at the beach and are better looking than plastic flip-flops.




Vionic Rest Amber Backstrap Sandal


I also love these metallic walking 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.
