Labor Day has been and gone, but beach parties are still happening in the warmer parts of the northern hemisphere, and are getting ready to start in the southern hemisphere.
And in Hawaii they are year round.
I’m packing now for the Corinna B’s World Glam Italia Tour on which there will be many beach parties in Sicily and southern Italy, so one way or another the concept of how to dress for an oceanside soiree is still current. (And I can’t handle summer being over quite yet!)
I found this article in Allure Magazine, and added some of my own thought to it
How To Dress For A Beach Party
1. Lighten Up
Wearing something black or fitted doesn’t work for a beach or pool environment. Instead opt for light, flowy fabrics that move when you do, and that drape fluidly on the body. Choose colors that are light and bright – whites and yellows, turquoises and corals are perfect.
2. Add Length
Try hemlines that vary from knee length through maxis. A maxi dress or a maxi skirt, or even a silky pyjama pant with a simple tank
looks perfect at a beach party.
3. No Fine Jewelry
A chunky necklace or an arm full of bracelets looks fun and fashion forward at a waterside event. Choose a theme that’s bright and summery.
4. Stay Low
Avoid heels. Wear sandals that show off a pedicure or an espadrille – a flat one or a platform espadrille. Keep your look fresh and fun
