5 Essentials Every Beach Beauty Needs
Discover the ultimate list of essentials that every beach beauty needs, whether you’re planning to take a dip in the sea or lounge in the shade with a cocktail in hand.
A Statement One PIECE
We all have that one swimsuit that makes a truly bold statement. It somehow perfectly fits your figure, and you get compliments on it whenever you pull it out. If you don’t have that swimsuit in your closet, this is it. PatBO’s tropical print one piece features unique side cut-outs and billowing princess sleeves that mean you’ll stand out from the crowd. The bodice’s Lycra hugs your body contours, and the sleeves are effortless and lightweight.
An Airy Cover-Up
To transform your look from daytime sun-worshipper to effortlessly chic evening drinks at the beach bar, the key is to layer with lightweight fabric. Find an effortless cover-up that has an airy feel to it, and is easy to throw on top of your swimsuit. Elena Makri’s cover-up is inspired by Thalassa, the mythological spirit of the sea. Made of 100% silk tulle, the fabric is light and breathable, the ideal choice for a hot and humid environment.
The right sunglasses can make or break even the most well put together ensemble. Not only are they stylish and statement-making, they provide much-needed protection from the sun by acting as a barrier that reflects harmful UV rays, so are a definite must-have. Appropriately named Nightfall, these futuristic-inspired Quay shades are the perfect not-too big-not-too-small sunnies for the beach.
A Little Black Bikini
They say every woman needs a little black dress, but what about a little black bikini? The perfect foundation for any beach outfit, a black bikini’s timelessness is a classic staple for any beach bag. This easy-to-wear strapless bikini top and intricate bikini bottom from The Eco Gypsy is made from high quality spandex, and is beautifully hand-beaded with sustainable shell material.
A Pop-of-Colour Headband
For most of us, our hair and the beach are not friends. Save yourself the difficult-to-manage sand and salt, and tie your hair back with an easy headband that also brings a pop of colour to your look. This Kindred Skies Woven Twist Headband from Camilla pays tribute to Australian flora and fauna with its soft tonal silk pattern, plus a charming twist detail and delicate crystals.
