The Pillow Guide: Cool and Quirky Beach Style

WHO doesn’t want to be told they look amazing, even more so on the beach?

As summer is finally making an appearance we can now (finally) start thinking ‘summer is here’!

And so, with no further ado, Pillow presents how to look cool and be cool on the beach this summer.

First things first, Swimwear

For the tummy shy but not the style shy. This patterned swimsuit offers a sexy and sports-chic zip down the front whilst still offering support and adding a bit of tummy coverage. Buy it here.

Jungle print and high waisted, this Topshop bikini is so on trend.  Its super sexy high waisted bikini bottoms and print are you all need to flatter that body and get those eyes staring. We love it. Buy it here.

The all round string bikini – a classic summer wardrobe staple and one you should be proud to wear. Stand out this summer in a bold print and tasselled bikini, you won’t regret it! Buy it here.

The kaftan

The most important and sometimes forgotten; the modest kaftan or cover up.  They’re a fab addition for those too-long-lying-in-the-sun days or a quick evening change straight from the beach. It can create a whole new look, and Pillow are loving these:

A sheer loose playsuit never goes amiss, with a sneak peek of that bikini underneath – hot! Buy it here.

The River Island Kimono cover up – chic, sophisticated and something a bit different. Buy it here.

Now to start accessorising

It’s often underestimated for the beach, but well worth the time and investment!

The bag

Perspex is definitely the IT factor this season, so why not take it to the beach – and it won’t go soggy when you chuck in your wet towel!

This Accessorize bargain is just perfect, perspex with a hint of a blue tint to keep your essentials hidden away. Buy it here.

The sunnies

Whether the over-sized sophisticated, or the aviators that-go-with-anything type, we have the top shades for you this summer.

For those looking for something unique, unusual and frankly a bit daring, the 60′s style circular glasses are back – try this Topshop pair. Buy them here.

For the over-sized lover, go to River Island, they have a huge collection. You can’t beat black lenses with a sophisticated frame. Buy them here.

And for the Ray-Ban enthusiast, grab yourself a pair on – We like the new spin on the classic aviator. Buy them here.

The hair accessory

Hair crowns are huge at the moment, and when you take off the floppy hat, why not wow with a Grecian-inspired style? Buy it here.

And lastly, the nails

A statement nail is essential, they brighten up a plain bikini and give a sparkle in the sun, and who doesn’t love a good summery nail trend?! Model’s own have released their new collection, and we are loving it. Try Aqua Splash and a few layers to really give a sea-side feel to your outfit, and catch the eyes of passers by!
