Beach Party Fashionista

floral bikiniThe party holiday season is nearly approaching, Malia, Ayia Napa and Ibiza are going to be filled once again. It is the place to be seen, the place to be dancing in the summer sun and more importantly the place to rock this seasons ‘It’ beachwear.


It is all about palm and tropical prints on kaftans and swimwear, which looks adorable teamed with denim shorts and sandals. Purple, yellow and orange are the key colours for swimwear, which will stand out against your summer tan! For the ultimate beach party look, try teaming a tropical printed tankini with denim shorts and tan wedges, all that is needed to accessorise is either a long chained necklace or wooden bangles. Karen Millen is one of the high street stores where you can find a range of bikinis in these colours and prints.


Miss Selfridge and Topshop are also great stores to purchase swimwear. At the moment Miss Selfridge are featuring floral printed bikinis which are popular every year. Try matching your floral bikini with flower hair grips, which will create a Hawaiian themed look. For those who want a more subdued look, Miss Selfridge is also stocking the Pixelated Rose Cover Up Dress, it still fits perfectly in with the floral theme and the fabric is light enough for the beach.


Purple 70s style sunglassesSunglasses for holidays are no longer black and round, think colours and exciting shapes, think Joey Essex and the red shades he wore at the pool party! Print sunglasses can suddenly uplift your mood and look equally good worn with bright clothing. Unique shapes and colours make you stand out from a party crowd and a true fashionista is not photographed on the beach without her shades. H&M have an amazing range of sunglasses this year, their Round Tortoise Sunglasses will match any outfit and the unique round lenses will stand out from the usual rectangular.


When considering bag wear, think light and easy to carry. There is nothing worse than being in the hot heat and holding a heavy bag. Satchels and side bags in white or light tan look amazing in weave designs. They can be found at many high-street stores and will still fit in your money, keys and emergency sun lotion!

Lastly, footwear for these party destinations is sadly all about comfort! Forget your six or seven inch heels, leave them at home. Either go to your nearest Office for a pair of stable wedges or take sandals. Summer 2011 has a wide range of sandal wear, from animal prints, jewels, floral to your average metallic. Being able to dance and walk on the sand is a must!
