One of the struggles of summer is getting some super cute outfits together for your outings, and dressing up for the beach is a tough one. Just wearing a bikini isn’t always an option and if you are lucky enough to go abroad, then you will probably discover the town afterwards or go and grab a bite to it, so you need to be dressed! Finding inspiration for stylish outfits isn’t always easy, so we have compiled 35 trendy beach outfits for you!
11 Timeless Look
This outfit will always make you look ravishing even when the weather isn’t at its best. Worn-out shorts and a white floaty top will always look cute and beach-ready. Add some cute sandals and a wide-brimmed hat to finish off this look.
1. Timeless Look
Co-ords make the best beachwear. Usually, the shorts are large and floaty, so they are very comfy for your trip to the beach. We love this print, and trust us, everyone will be admiring you at the beach!
33 Bardot Tops
Bardot tops, which are off-the-shoulder tops, are elegant and slinky for summer, and ooze glamour by showing a bit of shoulder. Wear high-waisted shorts as they pinch you in at the waist and are flattering on all body shapes. You may not feel that your body is beach-ready but this cute outfit will make you feel confident and beautiful!

44 Shirt Dress
Shirt dresses are the perfect cover-up to go over your bikini. It is very important to add a belt so that the outfit still has some shape to it and shows off your curves. Blue stripes are part of the nautical look that has been a big success in stores all over the world, so we really recommend this style!

It may not be the ideal outfit to get a tan in, but maxi-dresses will make you look like a Greek goddess as you wonder around the beach. They also make a great festival look if you have got some beach concerts to go to!
