Summer is here and that means more beach days! Because of COVID-19, there are still places that are closed but many beaches are starting to open up with social distancing in mind. Bringing the right items to the beach is essential, such as a towel, food, and maybe even a speaker to play some music. It would be hard to carry everything without a bag, and this bag from Shoedazzle does the job. It has a detailed woven design with a wooden handle for a modern neutral look, and it’s pretty large so you can bet that all your essentials will be able to fit in this bag! It’s a handy bag but also stylish. Here are three ways to dress with it.
For the first look, I paired the bag with this blue gingham set that I got from Nasty Gal. Each item was sold separately. The set has some ruffles which give off a very girly summer vibe. The off-the shoulder feature of the top also allows the look to have a flirty vibe. It’s safe to say that this look emulates the colors of the water as well as the sand.
This look is more suited for days that are a little more cooler since it’s layered and it features long pants. I wore a plain t-shirt from Uniqlo and on top I dressed it with a light knit tank top from Lulus. The tank top isn’t a heavy knit and is very light. I then paired it with white denim to keep the look light and because light colors will help keep the sun from making me feel hotter.
I call this Summer Chic because the top has a mock neck detail and usually that makes a look a lot more put together than just casual. The top is from Aritzia and it’s a very light stretchy material. It basically has the material similar to work out apparel. I added a gold necklace to create an accent because it would have been really plain. I then wore a gingham skort from Hollister to tie the look together.
For all these looks, because it’s summer, I would pair it with plain black sandals.
