The Trend: Beach Babe

The Trend: Beach Babe

Posted by Carlee Benito on

Hey I’m Claire (the new girl) and I’m here to cover all things fashion. Whether it’s the most classic of vintage pieces or the trendiest thing hot off the runway doesn’t matter to me. As long as it’s fresh, you can find it here.  


I am all about classic style with a bit of an unexpected twist. And with summer just around the corner I’m looking forward to taking this look to the beach. Here are the trends I’m feeling for summer ‘16:

One piece swimsuits are the new bandeau bikini, super sexy and a total show stopper. Not only do they give you all day comfort while lounging and swimming, but they also protect those burnt spots on your stomach from the day before. I am loving the striped suit and converse combo, maybe paired with a pair of helenas. It is a great look for grabbing a quick lunch or taking a shopping break from the sun.


Scarves have and always will be a timeless piece for every woman’s closet. But as of late, they are having a real moment. I have been loving this look, especially wrapped around adorable buns. They add a 70’s boho touch to your beach look, while keeping your hair away from your face.


Statement Sunglasses are a wardrobe piece that I always try to keep classic for everyday use. But when it comes to the beach, fashion calls for cool, colorful statement sunnies. Right now, you can’t get away from cat eye and round-shaped sunglasses. The mixture of glamour and indie offers a fresh and eccentric look that is undeniably fresh.


Braids have been dominating the fashion blogger industry for some time now. Having flashbacks from your childhood summer camp? Yeah, me too. But don’t fear that braids will make you look 12 again. They are back to renew their style, this time as athletic, effortless and sexy. Braids are the perfect beach look due to their simple and worry-free style. Braid in the morning and look adorable all day, guaranteed.
