Be it a cool backpack or oversized tote, beach bags have always been a must-have for your day out. Graphic print is all over the catwalk this season, either embellished or stripes but remember you still need space for books and lotion.

Hair Accessories

Hair accessories are always a good choice for the summertime with jewelled crowns and printed headbands always making a return for the spring/summer season. Hats to the beach is a no-brainer also- it’s a way of keeping cool while still looking like your outfit was planned. Opt for a rolled turben à la Carmen Miranda or sandy coloured straw hats.

2016 -celine Earring Maven46

Shoulder Duster Earrings

Earrings to the beach can appear a little over the top but these boho-inspired earrings seem fitting for a relaxed mellow day in the sun. The shoulder grazing trend was seen on the catwalks of Céline and Armani with Alberta Ferretti’s rendition of the style almost reaching the model’s bellies. Pair them with an off shoulder top or a strappy dress to keep the focus on your elongated earrings.

Sandals 

Sandals are always the best shoe options for the seaside, from slide ons to lace up peep toes. Candy colours and heavy platform styles were big this season with Chloé sending models down the runway in lace-up works of art.
