The Beach Bag Essentials
Okay team, it’s holiday time. Sun, sea and sand have got us fantasising on the daily, so we’re prepping early with our beach bag guide. We’re serving up the tips, tricks and essential bits of packing the bag that will take you from sunrise to sunset. Sunbathing, siestas, and after-dark parties; think of your beach bag as a trusty best friend – filled with all the support you need for 12 hours of holiday haven. Let’s get packing!
Choosing your beach bag is tough, with so many beaut options available. We suggest a versatile option that can be transitioned from sun, sea and swimming, to party o’clock with the gals. Opt for a large size tote to squeeze in all the essentials, and keep the style simple to work with all of your beach attire, or go bold and bright with an option that’s sure to add an edge of glam.
Just like us, we imagine your entire wardrobe travels on holiday with you, so deciding on ‘bits for the beach’ may prove a tricky process. Our advice? Stick to the basics to cover you from day to night.
Footwear: Time to showcase that pre-hols pedicure. Gladiators, sliders and lace ups are ideal for evening antics, but a pair of basic flip flops must make the beach-bag edit for strolling the beach and heading poolside.
Clothes: A cover up is the ultimate beach essential that will maintain all modesty wherever your travels take you (shopping anyone?). The perfect cover up transitions with ease from beach to barbecue, so choose wisely and a find a fit that suits your shape to cover up with class!
Accessories: We love styling a simple bikini with an embellished necklace and metallic bangles, but our accessory essentials are sweet and simple - a hat (the bigger the better) and some fab sunglasses, to speak chic wherever you may be.
What’s a sunbathing session without a juicy holiday read? Whether a sizzling summer story takes your fancy, or you’re a fashion mag connoisseur, plug in your headphones to some ultimate summer jams and unwind…
Don’t forget that make-up bag! Hoard all the necessary beauty bits; beach-proof makeup, your fave holiday scent, anti-bacterial hand gel and sun cream (to keep your skin in perfect condition) - that should keep you feeling fresh from dawn to dusk.
Throw in some H20, a delish snack, and some lip balm to keep all things hydrated. Ready, set, pack - time to get beaching!
