Our handy guide on how to transfer the catwalk look to the beach this summer....

1. Black and White

Black and white never goes out of style  and makes for an effortlessly classic - but edgy - look. This summer sees designers experimenting with different textures and patterns, like the Givenchy dress below.

Keep it stylish on the beach with Cali Dreaming’s Zephyr Rose cover-up dress.

2. Blue and White

If you prefer adding colours to your summertime palette, the combination of blue and white is a softer take on the minimalist black and white look. Draw inspiration from D&G’s Maiolica capsule collection and turn heads on the beach with Caffe Swimwears Bluebell bikini.

3.Hippie Deluxe

This summer’s main trend is the luxe hippie trend. For a full-on seventies babe look, pair our Hanne Bloch Amalfi Short Kaftan with its coordinated Amalfi headband. If you prefer keeping it simple, the JadeTribe Maroc X-Body bag is perfect to add a touch of boho to any outfit.

4. One Shoulder 

Believe it or not, not only are one shoulder cuts back, but they are bigger and sexier than ever! Dress to impress at the beach with Le Swim’s reversible Nantucket one piece swimsuit.

5.  Yellow

While yellow is hard to pull off during the winter, the lightest of tans does the trick and helps you transition into a summer goddess. Choose the hue that best suits your skin tone and stand out on the beach in this summer’s biggest colour. We love 9Seed's Seychelles Sun cover-up dress.

 

6. Jumpsuits

Jumpsuits are all the rage this summer, both for casual daytime strolls and more polished nighttime outings. Mara Hoffmann’s Modal Jumpsuit is the perfect cover-up, especially if your seaside day ends up transitioning into late afternoon drinks and casual aperitivos on the beach.

7. Nautical

The yachting-inspired look isn’t a new one, but it was strongly represented on the SS15 runways. Nothing is more beach-appropriate than buttons, sailors’ uniforms and nautical stripes. Paolita’s Forest Bengal two-piece does classical stripes with a (deep forest green) twist.
