The holiday season is just on the horizon, and while the sea is calling for us, the tedious task remains unsolved — what to pack. If you’re heading out to a beach trip, simply throwing in swimsuits and sunscreen into your suitcase will not do. Perfecting your camera-ready beach look will require a little bit more effort. To save you the time and trouble, we’ve curated a list of must-have items for your next beach escape. Shop these stylish looks and flaunt them in the sun.

1
Swimwear

Make a splash with this stunning swimsuit from Ab by Angelys Balek (THB 4,200). The criss-cross detailing is what’s most unique about this white one-piece, taking it from basic to next-level chic. The strappy component of this flattering swimwear will draw attention to your slender hips, and the halter design lets you show off your seductive neckline, too. Spotless and sensuous, the colour white is also the new black this season.

Beach dress

Whether it’s a stroll on the sandy beach or a camera moment by the shimmering pool, kaftan dresses are as practical as they are chic. You can effortlessly layer it on top of your swimsuit and hop over to the beach bar for an ice-cold cocktail. We especially love with this floaty kaftan dress from Yorata (THB 2,000) for its summery white and blue shades. Sheer and stylish with the slit, this dress is feminine but not too sweet.

Sunglasses

Protect your eyes from harmful UV light with these cool sunnies. Since 90’s fashion is making a comeback this year, the vintage sunglasses are all the rage right now. Always at the forefront of the latest trends, Mira Madison has just released these lovely retro shades (THB 2,890) — which we absolutely adore. With its dramatic, oversized silhouette, these white frames will instantly add a tasteful touch to your look.

Sun hat

Cap off your summer look with a stylish sun hat. A crochet hat might seem a little odd at first for a beach trip but this floppy, knitted sun hat will change your mind. Hippy and colourful, this adorable crochet hat from Issarapap (THB 650) is a good kind of different from the usual straw hat. With its vibrant hues and striped pattern, the hat can be paired effortlessly with the white one-piece or any sundresses easily.

Beach bag

Carry all your necessities like sunblock and sunnies in a cute beach bag and look absolute mod. You can keep the lazy beach vibes going with this woven beach bag (THB 950) from Cornerstone’s Laura Lullaby collection. The bag is beautifully handcrafted and adorned with sheer ruffle embroidery, which adds a sense of soft femininity to your outfit. And not to mention that this type of basket-shaped beach bags is very bohemian-chic at the moment.

Sandals

Last but not least, a pair of nice sandals always comes in handy. Complete your beach look with these signature sandals from Philia Boutique (THB 2,280). Don’t let those sparkling straps fool you; they’re not only stylish but also soft and comfortable on your feet. And since the straps are nude in colour, you can pair it with any of your outfits with ease.
