Beach chic used to be all about dressing down, rocking pared-back makeup and leaving your hair au naturel. But as times change, so do trends: now, beach visits require a little more preparation, because dressing up has made a comeback.
This summer, expect to see bikinis crop up in bright colours and daring silhouettes, with the high-rise swimsuit still reigning supreme. Hairstyles will be bigger and bolder with intricate braids and luscious curls making waves at the beach. Makeup looks will include a pop of colour - a rosy cheek, statement lip, or some grown-up glitter on the lids.
As well as opting for bold colours, prints and daring designs when picking out swimwear, we're now seeing more women look to jewellery to help elevate their beach looks. And we don't blame them - jewellery can really make or break any summer look, plus it effortlessly helps you go from sun-bed to beach bar without an outfit change.
Layering jewellery will be key to nailing this year's beach look, so look to brands like Thomas Sabo for stunning mix-and-match pieces. Their new collection - Generation Charm Club - lets you pair different styles of jewellery together. The new, stylish XL charm pendants can be combined in sets to create unique pieces of jewellery that reflects your very own Boho chic look. The wide range includes yellow gold and silver charms with colourful details that are perfect for wearing on the beach for a fun and Summery touch.
A combination of the long and short layered necklaces, alongside different nature-inspired charms like the moon, leaf, star and best-selling parrot will make for the perfect beach look. And don't forget to accessorize with their earrings too. Graphic triangle pendants in summer shades like turquoise are the perfect marriage of elegant and fun - the duo that every beach babe needs to rock this summer.
Whatever your style, you can have fun personalising your summer beach jewellery by mixing and matching different pieces. For more inspiration, shop Grazia's edit of Thomas Sabo beach jewellery below:
