Stylish Luxe Beachwear To Go From Day To Night
June 8, 2017
To savvy-pack the holiday suitcase and effortlessly transition from day to night, here’s Luxuria Lifestyle’s top picks of versatile beachwear pieces which can also double up for stylish evening looks.
Your beachwear checklist should include block colour one piece swimsuits and two-piece bikinis with colours you can mix and match.
Swimsuits: All body shapes suit a block colour swimsuit light or dark. A staple black swimsuit can transition from daytime on the beach to night-time under a blazer teamed with a glamorous flowing maxi-skirt and strappy heels, or with a cardigan, casual shorts and flat sandals. The same applies to a block colour swimsuit.
Bikinis: Most body shapes suit bikini top halter-neck, bra-fit styles and colours or prints. As a rule of thumb, avoid wide stripes if you are short curvy bodied like Kim Kardashian. Steer clear of unflattering bandeau bikini tops (which cut the body in half) unless you are a Kate Moss model boyish body-shape, leggy and small-busted.
We’ve discovered four stunning beachwear pieces for you from Salt Resort Wear, the brainchild of Founding Director Stephanie Alameida, who developed her own signature style by travelling the globe. Having noticed a large gap in the market for a luxury, multi-brand, resort wear and lifestyle store, she opened Salt’s first Resort Wear boutique in May 2012, on London’s exclusive Walton Street. Stephanie has called her blog #jetsetbeachclub featuring all things travel and beach style.
A black swimsuit should be first on your packing beachwear list
The Evarae Black Sheer Print Swimsuit (£170) and Black Lazer swimsuit (£180) can both double up as a one-piece body under skirts and shorts.
For a two-piece bikini the Lenny printed bikini ( £200) in ‘Naomi’ is a bird print, blue turquoise and white colour which simply oozes glamour.
A beautiful day-to-night kaftan is a summer holiday must-have to pack in your luggage.
The Camilla Kaftan (£380) suits all body shapes and looks stunning over swimwear by day on the beach and at night for dinner over a black swimsuit and shorts.
Fashion-forward musicians and models including Beyoncé, Rihanna and Victoria’s Secret Angel, Candace have all been rocking the latest hair wrap look. The SILKE Hair Wrap by SILKE London, (£45) is perfect to pack to wear day or night. To rock the old-school Hollywood glamour look, wear your SILKE Hair Wrap to the beach and not only look super chic but protect your hair from damage caused by harsh UV-rays. Plus you won’t have to deal with an unwanted color change or dry, coarse and frizzy locks after a day at the beach. At bedtime, wear your SILKE Hair Wrap to sleep and eliminate the friction of bed linen against hair cuticles that would otherwise cause detrimental breakage to sun exposed hair. Silk retains moisture and helps reduce waking up with frizzy hair.
With these key holiday beach wear pieces packed, you can transition easily from day to night and savvy-suitcase pack too, leaving luggage space freed up, to bring home those duty-free goodies.
