10 Amazing Beach Outfits For Your Summer Outfit Inspiration


Ready for some fun in the sun?

It’s time to start planning your summer beach outfits. Whether you are going on a beach vacation, beach date, or just spending a lazy listening to the waves crash on the shore. I’ve put together a long list of stylish and cute beach outfits that will give you some ideas for various beach events and activities so you will know what to wear to the beach!


This is a beach outfit I wore in Mexico during our vacation. So for this beach vacation outfit, the accessories were a must, hat, and sunnies for sun protection because the sun rays were intense. The simple breezy top has little patterned details which match the style of the bracelets I’m wearing. Simple green classic chino shorts, the chino shorts I’m wearing are from J.Crew, and a boho bag completes this beach outfit.


For your time in the sun, nothing beats a bikini but if you want to add some pizazz and make it extra boho add a flowy floral beach coverup, beaded accessories and a hat. The floral embroidery matches the floral pattern on the coverup which helps create a cohesive beach look. The coverup I’m wearing this beach outfit is from Sole Society if you’re looking for something cute and affordable they have a lot of great options.

This summer beach outfit has one piece that I love wearing in the summer, white shorts! This summer beach outfit can go from brunch to a bike ride to the beach, all in the same day. Under the beautiful blue spaghetti strap shirt, I wore a yellow bikini if I get the itch to take a dip in the ocean! The hat is a must to protect your hair and face from the sun, and the bracelets add a bit more color for fun. You could opt for denim white shorts but I prefer shorts that are a little more laid-back and loose. I’ve rounded up some options below this outfit pic!

For a day spent on the sand, this tie-dye bikini with denim shorts is the perfect combo. Remove the shorts if you are tanning so you don’t get the crazy tan line. I like to add on a pair of shorts for those transition periods. Walking from the car to the beach, the beach to lunch, from the beach to grab a cocktail, etc. Add in matching bracelets and a sun hat, and you’re ready for the sunshine.

Do you have a romantic summer date coming up? Or are you planning on having a nice date with your significant other during your vacation? This calls for a summer date outfit! Make sure this beach outfit is a little dressy, cute, and flirty. For this summer date outfit, I wore an off-the-shoulder dress, some cute strappy sandals, a fringe bucket bag, and a hat! This is an outfit I wore on our vacation to Mexico, in the Riviera Maya.

Wearing a mismatched bikini is not just because you forgot to pack to correct combo, it’s a cute and fun way to get more use out of your bikinis and create cute and unexpected combinations. I love to mix it up with beachwear, and this is the perfect example. The frilly style of the top is completely different from the traditional material and wrap bottom bikini. You can mix solid colors, like I do here, or have one piece be print and one solid. You can even mix prints if they are done right to create a unique beach outfit!

I love this beach outfit because of the array of blues and fun prints. If you have not noticed yet, you will, that my favorite color is blue and that is also one of my favorite colors to wear to the beach. The two distinct patterns work so well together because they are in the same color scheme. This outfit is the perfect example of mixing prints and creating somewhat of a monochromatic look. I’ve decided to add a little more pattern to this outfit with the striped shoulder bag! To complete this cute vacation outfit, my hair has the cute beach waves look. You could also braid your hair which would be great to keep your hair out of your face and braids also look very cute at the beach.

What is more simple and stylish than wearing a beautiful printed dress in the summer. This is a great example of a simple summer outfit with a beach vibe, with the vibrant blues reminiscent of the sea and sky. I’ve paired a blue print dress, with blue wedge sandals, a fedora, and a lightweight denim jacket. Perfect for a summer date, girls brunch, romantic beach dinner, or even a beach party.

Everyone has their idea of the perfect summer bikini, and this one is mine. I like that the top is a bit different, while the bottoms are classic. It’s comfortable, wears well in the water, and looks good under a beach cover-up! I know this is simple but I say it still counts as a beach outfit.

Do you need to wear a beach outfit that is a little more dressed up? Why not opt for a maxi dress! A maxi dress is a great example of stylish beach attire. A beach maxi dress can be dressed up with heels or depending on the length of the dress you could wear cute flat sandals. I love this Donna Morgan dress, it’s got a beachy vibe but is classic in style with accordion pleating and the stark white top. Think about trying a dress with an ikat print, floral, tie-dye or stripe!
