#VerySummerEdit: Beach Chic

The Very girls are officially on Holiday Countdown after this SUPER HOT edit landed on our desks. Allow us to introduce #BeachChic to your new season wardrobe – you’ll be wanting to book that tropical destination sooner than you can say ‘Pina Colada!’.

The trend has a bohemian beach vibe with pretty crocheted details, exquisite embroidery and elegant fringing. It also works some fun, festival fashion – think tribal prints, tassels and tie-dye. The look is perfect for pool parties in Ibiza, or sauntering around in the sun on more chilled-out breaks.

So, here are my suitcase staples from the edit:

1. Embroidered and Tie-Dye Bikinis

A bandeau bikini top is supper flattering for any bust – it sculpts and supports, while also avoiding awkward tan lines from strappy triangle tops.

The tie-dye bikini is dipped in a stunning aqua shade and features matching bottoms with pretty plaited sides. The white bikini is flourished in beautiful floral embroidery with a large frill to the top and oozes 70s hippie appeal. Wear them with a loose braid in your sea salt, tousled hair.

2. Beach Playsuits

Pop these playsuits on over your bikini as you head towards the shore, or as you hotfoot it to the cocktail bar after a blissful day of basking in the sun. They also offer fairer skined beauties a chic cover up from sore sunburn.

In angelic white, the playsuit is detailed with delicate crochet trims to add effortless elegance to this easy-to-wear look. The loose, fluid and floaty cut to the top creates that romantic, bohemian feel. Dress it up with an oversized floppy sunhat, aviators and wooden wedges for total 70s beach-babe style.


The Aztec playsuit works the tribal trend to perfection with chevron patterns, triangular shapes and terracotta accents. The striking design is the main fashion focus, allowing the fit to be relaxed and comfortable. Wear with gladiator sandals, a bronzed cuff and a straw trilby.

3. The Sun Dress

This LWD is decorated with ethnic embroidery that pops in contrasting coral for a modern edge. We love how floaty this frock is (almost like a summer smock), while the tassel rope tie brings authentic boho styling. Wear it over your bikini for a touch of coverage as the temperature drops. Team with gold beaded sandals to complement the punchy coral colour.


4. Fringed Cover Up

Add some folklore fashion to your beach style with this fringed vest top – the long tassels will swing in the sea breeze beautifully. The semi sheer fabric allows the loud colours and prints of your bikini to really pop. Team with aviators and embellished sandals and rock up to that Ibiza ocean party.


5. A Tribal Print Maxi

This panelled maxi dress sculpts to flatter your figure, while the knee length and longer pieces of floaty fabric make the most of your pins, as well as keeping on-trend with the maxi style. Aztec prints collide with structured cream and black sections to bring a fun mix of folk fashion with a clean-cut, sophisticated edge. Wear with delicate gold arm cuffs and hooped beaded earrings.


6. Collared Necklaces

Chunky collar necklaces are a simple and chic way to add statement style to your beach look. Chanel Cleopatra with a gold collar, or opt for a splash of summer brights with tiered multi-coloured beads.
