Sunshine, warm sand and an ocean view are at the top of my vacation list when it comes to summer travel. Since I don’t go on nearly enough trips to the beach during the summer season, I like to play pretend by adding some tropical vibes to my summer looks! Even if I’m not basking in the sunshine in a sandy destination, who says I can’t dress like I’m there?! I’ve rounded up five simple and effortless ways to make any outfit feel a bit more “beachy.” (travel not required!)

Swimwear as Daywear

Did you see Jennifer’s article from earlier this month?! She talks all about how to incorporate swimwear into your everyday outfits, which is a fool-proof way to make any outfit feel like you’re heading the beach! Read her article here.

Timeless Tropical Prints

Tropical prints will forever be reminiscent of the summer season. Instead of reaching for that classic Hawaiian print button down in your closet that you’ve had for years, try incorporating this fun print into your look this summer in a fashion-forward silhouette like these straight leg pants instead!

Shell Deets

Take the beach with you wherever you go this summer season by adding pearl accessories to your outfits!

Add in a Bright Hue

Bold colors instantly make any outfit pop and are a must for mastering a vacation-ready look! Throw on an eye-catching tank with some shell jewelry for a winning combo!
