Which way is the beach? I don’t know but I hope I get there soon. It’s that time of year when we all start to think about the warmer weather that a beach holiday offers us whether it’s a full on 2 week break with the family, or a fun filled weekend away with the girls. And the most important thing to plan after you’ve booked your ‘hols’ is of course your beachwear wardrobe.
Long gone are the days of a plain vest and pair of shorts being chucked on to get you from breakfast to the sun lounger, now your outfit is more likely to consist of sandals, beach bag, kaftan, swimwear, jewellery, sunglasses and a hat…phew that’s a long list, especially if you’re off for 14 whole days of summer sun.
Of course it’s not all about posing around the pool, but if you look good, you’ll feel good and everyone has little anxieties around holiday season as to how they may look lying on a lounger in comparison to everyone else. You also don’t have to be flashing a lot of flesh to feel sexy, and it certainly doesn’t matter when it comes to topping up that tan – have you seen how many straps the swimsuits and bikinis have nowadays?!
Take a look at some of the inspirational images below and you’ll see how easy it is to chose you best feature to flash.

Don’t let your holiday wardrobe stress you out, we all want something new to wear but I bet if you look back through what you bought last summer you’ve got some real gems already waiting to be worn again. Then all you need to do is update with a few choice accessories, maybe a new cover-up or pair of sandals and before you know it you’ll be itching to get your body on that beach.
So with that in mind here’s a round up of some of my favourite summer suitcase purchases from swimwear to cover-ups, temporary tattoos, jewellery and beach clutches, plus much more. I like to shop at big high street and online stores like Topshop, H&M and ASOS, but it’s also good to find independent stockists like Dancing Leopard and Beach Cafe where you can find new brands, along with all sorts of bits and pieces other people may not yet have spotted.
