4 Easy Outfits That Will Fit in Your Beach Bag

Blue Sarong navy
Headed to the beach this summer? Fortunately for me, I live ten minutes from beautiful beaches, so having outfits that can go from beach to a bbq party or patio drinks is essential. If you're used to wearing just an old t-shirt and gym shorts over your swimsuit, here are some chic ideas to give your post-beach look some style.

- Maxi dress. Buy one in a light cotton fabric available at every department store and boutique this time of year. Choose a fun print or play with color blocking. Depending on what color your swimsuit is, try to get one in a complementary color. It doesn't have to match, but make sure it doesn't clash.

- Tunic. Tunics are super chic and easy to slip on after a day at the beach. When paired with a t-strap pair of sandals, gold hoop earrings and an armful of bangles, you'll be ready to meet the girls for mojitos.

- Sarong. If you are ever in San Diego (and I'm sure other beach-friendly areas), you will see tons of sarongs sold by the seashore. Along with these sarongs is a guide with at least five different ways to tie one rather than just the standby of around the waist. My favorite is the criss-cross around the neck for a beachy, laid-back look.

- Cutoff shorts and off the shoulder shirt. This is one of my favorite combinations of the summer and is an easy, comfortable look to wear. If you're heading to a barbecue or a bonfire following time at the beach, this is a good option. It's low-key, but still stylish.

Summer days are all about colorful, laid-back fashion in breathable fabrics and trendy prints. As long as you are wearing something you are comfortable with, I'd say you're good to go! Just know that slipping on one of these beach outfit ideas is just as easy as putting on that old ratty tee and gym shorts. Next time you head to the beach, don't be afraid to show off your style and add in your own personal flair!
