We wrote about what to wear and bring to the beach for the ultimate, comfortable day spent splashing in the water, but what to wear afterwards? Whether you are channelling surfer girl coolness or going for boho/70's/total diva vibe, or just practical yet put together, we've got some tricks up our sleeves.
For those that surf, swim or are just athletic in general, athleisure is huge right now. Opt for a sporty halter bikini top with contrasting zippers and a chic shiny bomber jacket on top with comfy sneakers or trendy pool slides.
For you boho babes with long messy beachy hair and sun kissed skin: go for a long wrap dress with a revealing neckline to "accidentally" flash your sophisticated bikini top, tons of layering necklaces and a simple boater hat.
The texture and exposed cut outs of crochet cover-ups paired with a large straw tote, oversized sunnies and strappy sandals keep them are at the top of our after-swim staples.
Another good option is to use a silk scarf in place of a swim suit top with high waisted pleated shorts or wide leg cropped pants in breezy linen.
And for those who don't like carrying a lot of stuff around, a lightweight sarong can double as a beach blanket, a skirt or a cover up. Tie it above your waist to create a slimming effect or around your chest for an elevated dress lookalike.
