It’s just about Summer for those of us in the Southern Hemisphere and if we’re lucky enough this means long days at the beach for the next few months. It’s always tricky to find the perfect balance in an outfit that you can wear both on the sand, as well as walking around the street without feeling over-exposed, but INSPIRER has some basic beach looks that anyone can put together with ease to keep you cool (but covered)! 

A floral print bustier and skirted bikini is a super feminine option for swimwear which can be teamed with a plain kaftan and thongs for a relaxed, beach chic outfit.  A kaftan is a staple beach cover-up (especially in whites or neutrals) because it’s simple, stylish and 100% comfortable!

Seafolly English Rose Bustier Bra $94.95(AUD)
Seafolly English Rose Vintage Skirted Pant $69.95(AUD)
French Connection Winter Plains Kaftan $89.95(AUD)
Havaianas Slim Basic Black Thongs $24.95(AUD)

 A printed cut-out halter one piece needs to be paired with a simple item to avoid pulling a complicated look and the perfect option is an oversized tee (sized so large you don’t need shorts). Throw on a pair of nude thongs and this neutral ensemble achieves an effortless transition from the beach to the street.

With a basic bikini in a solid colour, try wearing it with any kind of playsuit or romper. Denim always works and will look a little less casual when worn with sandals. Add a printed beach tote for a practical accessory!
