10 Wanderlust-y Beach Looks To Rock

best beach looks 2016
'SUMMER!!!', the entire Northern Hemisphere screams in unison.

Summer style will always be my fave; effortlessly chic maxis, cute cut offs and enough boho luxe to fill a whole darn swimming pool!

Today, it's time to get your wanderlust hats on! I'm sharing 10 perfectly-salty beach looks for you to copy this Summer! Plus: my luxe for less shopping options so that you can get that Pinterest-worthy look for under $100.

Just try not to get on a plane after you read this! (Especially if you're headed into Aussie Winter)


The Crochet Maxi

Crochet maxis were practically made to pair with sun-kissed arms and salty hair. Go for one with full coverage, and switch your sandals for wedge heels come 6PM and you're ready for beach-side cocktails!

The Luxe For Less


Boho Skirt & Crop Top

 Boho print skirts are one item you NEED to have in your Summer rotation. Add a crop top, some lace-up gladiators and a bandana and be the best dressed babe on the beach!

The Luxe For Less


Slit, Breezy & Tropical Printed

Summer would be boring without tropical prints! Embrace this seasons aztec, floral and boho prints on long, flowing maxi dresses. Wear barefoot and with a flower crown for extra hippy points. Coachella who?

The Luxe For Less


A Touch Of Flare

That flared dress can totally be worn for the daytime! Keep accessories minimal and hair nonchalant and salty. Now all I need is a Greek Island and a pina colada in my hand...

The Luxe For Less



Safari Shorts

 Guess who? This odd ball somehow thinks its appropriate to go Safari to the beach? Just kidding. Grab a white blouse, brown shorts and a hat and head to those sandy shores!

The Luxe For Less


The LWD

The Little White Dress is the definition of a Summer staple. For a romantic look, opt for a floaty shirt number like the gorgeous girly above! Just don't forget to fake tan! (You can check out my tips here).

The Flowy Co-ords

Twinsies! I think you'll agree that this flowy, off-shoulder two piece is what balmy dreams are made of. **Sighs** I don't know who you are, but can I be you?

The Luxe For Less


The Grecian Maxi
Whitehaven Beach
(Full post here)
Here's one from the archives!!! A Grecian-style maxi dress is like the jeans of Summer; it never goes out of style! Go for light blue tones to set off a tan or opt for printed for a more bohemian vibe.

Denim Shorts & Boho Blouse

This blouse has wanderlust written all over it. Paisleys, florals, folk.... the more prints the merrier! Add some distressed denim shorts for a look that looks unbelievably thrown together. #IWokeUpLikeThis

The Luxe For Less



 The Stripe Off-Shoulder Dress

Stripes: check! Off-shoulders: check! That's a double trend whammy! Nautical style dresses are always a sure fire hit for Summer, so make it so this year by opting for an off-shoulder style. Now, time to watch endless Youtube tutorials to try and master that braid...
