Summer’s in full swing, the sun’s shining (for once), people are jetting off left, right and centre and there’s not been a spot of rain in nearly 2 weeks!
Since the weather has been so dreamy, we’ve been inspired to put together the perfect beach-wear guide just for you.
Sun, sea and sarongs
If you weren’t blessed with skin that tans instead of burns then it’s important you have a beach cover up to hand just in case the sun gets a little too much.
We’ve had a look through Debenhams range of sarongs and kimonos to give you a little inspiration on how to style your swim wear with a stunning cover up. They have everything from light linen wraps to beautiful lace pieces.
Swim into style
You can’t go to the beach without the perfect swim wear so we’ve had a look in some of our favourite stores at their collections. Whether you’re a one piece kind of girl or prefer a sultry two piece, our broad selection of swimsuits will definitely complete your summer wardrobe.
Don’t worry boys, we haven’t forgot about you, we’ve found collection of swim shorts in H&M that will be perfect for all types of getaways, from family fun to lads holidays! Keep it simple with a solid colour or show off your personality with a bold and bright pattern, whatever your style, we know you’re going to love this range.
In our opinion, there’s one item of clothing that every lad needs when they go abroad and that’s a bright Hawaiian shirt!
There’s something about being on holiday that lets you push your style boundaries and nothing says that like one of these shirts from H&M, coming in at just £17.99.
What does your beach towel say about you?
Whether you’re a self-confessed mermaid, Disney princess or Baywatch wannabe, then boy do we have the towel for you. We’ve had a little browse through Primark’s new range of beach towels and they have something that will radiate your personality to every sunbathing sally within a 5 mile radius.
