With the last few weeks of summer, it’s the perfect time to hit the beach.

After the year, we’re all ready to make up for lost time. There’s nothing better than hosting a beach party with your friends and family. Grab a few deck chairs, your favourite drinks, and a dish to share. You can dip your toes in the water, get your Instagram photos, and enjoy golden hour. 

Whether you’re planning a beach party or attending one with your friends, you want to make sure your outfit is on point. We’re sharing three of our favourite beach party outfit ideas to give you inspiration for what you should wear to your next big summer event. It’s time to chase the sun and make memories that deserve a spot on your Instagram feed.

You're so golden

Embrace golden hour with this laidback, vintage-inspired look. It blends different shades of yellow and caramel to create the perfect colour palette for the end of summer. This outfit looks like it’s come straight from the pages of a ‘70s Vogue. It’s smart-casual with a California twist. You can recreate this outfit with pieces from your closet, putting your own twist on the look. Start with a bold statement colour for your trousers, choosing a warm hue that complements your summer glow. You want to add a button-up shirt that is slightly oversized and in a breathable material to keep you cool in the late summer sun. What makes the shirt in our outfit picture pop’ is its colourful chevron print that perfectly complements the trousers while adding a pop of blue to the look.

Embrace the monochrome

We think pastels are a year-round neutral, but they come out on their own during the summer. Comfortable-casual is our go-to for summer 2021. Our second outfit inspiration sets are monochrome looks that you could wear anywhere from brunch to the beach. Monochrome outfits work for any occasion, instantly elevating even the most casual of looks.

What we love about this outfit inspiration are the understated slides. The colour and silhouette take the athleisure staple and turns it into an effortlessly chic look. If you want an alternative to slides, check out these Chloe sandals.

You can bring Coachella to the beach with a matching beaded anklet and necklace for a playful twist.

Don’t forget to finish off your outfit with statement sunglasses, complete with tinted lenses for a street style look. You can take this outfit inspiration and make it your signature by choosing your favourite pastel or neon shade, whether you want to be tickled pink or sleek in green. 

Ibiza inspired

There’s never a better time to look at an Ibiza lookbook for outfit ideas than during the summer. We’re obsessed with this matching two-piece.

We love how our style muse has taken the sea-green shade from her outfit, matching it almost perfectly with her Chanel classic flap bag. You can bring a bohemian feel to your look with a stack of bracelets, mixing and matching dainty and chunky bracelets. You can incorporate a beaded necklace – one of the biggest trends of summer – into your look to finish it off. 

No summer outfit is complete without a signature pair of shades – the more oversized, the better! Tortoiseshell is a classic, but you can experiment with any shape, silhouette, or lens. You want to make sure that you choose a sunglasses style that works with your face shape. The golden rule is to choose the opposite silhouette to your face shape.
