The Boyish Beach Bum
While pants at the beach may seem like a no-no, a loose, breezy option will transition your bikini to off-sand wandering with ease. With these new takes on swim cover-ups, it's time to scrap that floral sarong for good.
On Luz: 6397 jeans, Mara Hoffman swimsuit, Preen top, Loeffler Randall shoes. On Adeele: Converse shoes, Rebecca Minkoff jumpsuit and swim top.
Swap your caftan for an eyelet overall.
We love a good jumpsuit, and this white eyelet style is a breathable companion piece to your colorful bikini. The porous, mesh-like fabric will keep your new suit on prime display and allow the ocean breeze to flow right through.
Take cues from surf style with a neoprene topper.
The texture and zip-front detail of this top give it a cool, wet-suit feel that's practically made for beach life. Wear it open as a throw-on-and-go layer, or zip it up for more coverage. Cuff a pair of white boyfriend jeans, and throw on mirrored Ray-Bans to complete the tomboyish look.
The Urban-Meets-Island Reveler
Your city-girl style need not disappear just because you're going off the grid. Bring your urban staples, like leather and denim, and mix 'em up for edgier getups when you hit the town.
On Adeele: Topshop vest, Rebecca Minkoff dress, Isa Tapia shoes. On Luz: Topshop top, Rodebjer jeans, Loeffler Randall shoes.
Keep your cool with culottes.
If you're a tried-and-true denim girl, swap out your stuffy skinnies for breathable culottes at the beach. A high-waisted option will lend the perfect proportion for your flowy crop tops. Keep it extra comfy with flat slides.
