We get just a few weeks out of the year to spend at the beach, so it’s only natural to want to do so in style. Whether you’re barbecuing surfside or soaking up the sun with your friends, the goal is to look effortlessly pulled together—but never overdone. That being said, a bit of planning goes a long way. To make life a little easier, we’ve shopped out five no-fail outfits that will keep your summer style game strong. Consider this your complete waterfront wardrobe.
Keep it easy but on trend in a sleek maillot that doubles as a bodysuit. Pair with relaxed pieces like a printed pareo and slides—plus an anklet for a splash of whimsy—and you've got the perfect seaside party ensemble.
