Hey, Ertsy People! The part of the world where I’m in, the entirety of the population seems to either be or prepping for a holiday. Even I broke the spell and went for a beach vacation last weekend. And well, while I shared all about my outfit and there’s definitely more to come, I decided to share a list of some handy Ertsy tips to ease and enhance your beach vacation style. Because even though beaches are fun and relaxing, they seldom are chic, too. So, I decided to help you be your chicest best when on a beach vacation with this listicle.
First things first, Beachbody or not, these style tips are for everyone who likes to up their fashion game irrespective of where they are. Which means that this list is not biased like some other lists on the internet towards those who already look good.
This list is for those who want to wear good irrespective. Like for my style inspiration, I turn to ‘The Style Stamp’ community, where I’m not only a contributor but also a learner. TSS is a a marketplace to buy amazing fashion, beauty and lifestyle products and services; and the India Fashion Calendar that is your one-stop digital resource for the coolest fashion and lifestyle events happening across cities and countries.

The Beach Vacation Style Tips:
1. Invest in a Swimsuit
You can’t get a conventional Beachbody at the last minute but you certainly can find a perfect swimsuit for yourself. Go for the one with pads or light corsets to accentuate your curves (hide a little bit of belly).
2. Befriend Kimonos
Not only will Kimonos save you from the sunburns but will also make you look chic between your breaks from the sea over the swimsuit/bikini. The best part is that they are light and can be doubled up with shorts and a tank top for your day excursions, too.
3. Basket Bag and Straw Hat
Sunscreen, towels, mats, gadgets and more, a beach holiday ensues a lot of carry-on. Therefore, a basket bag is not only a chic alternative but also an essential. If you’re hesitant in carrying it on your flight, take a foldable, waterproof beach bag instead, but don’t travel without a bag either way. Same goes for the straw hat. Other than adding dimensions to your outfit it will save your face and hair from having dimensions of sunburn.
4. Maxi(mize) your Style Quotient
I’m not even sorry for using that pun to emphasize on how important and stylish Maxi Dresses look on beach vacations. They are perfect for the street evenings and for the beach resort vibes, too. Off shoulder, light colored, fit flair style maxis are my go to beach vacation style.
5. Rev up those Flats
Flat shoes will be your best friend on any beach vacation. Take your pick between the metallic style, gladiators, jute footbed or tennis shoes and say no to moccasins, wedges, and cross-trainers. When done right, your shoes will enhance your glam quotient to the highest level.
So, that was my edit of the beach Vacation Style tips. If you have any more, leave them in comments below. For more of my travel in style adventures, keep following Ertsy.
