After as long and hard of a winter as we’ve just been through, there’s nothing better than a spring break getaway to a sunny location. Living it up in the surf and sand is the perfect antidote to those blizzard blues! But it’s difficult to look cute when the sun’s in your eyes and you’re sweating up a storm. Keep your cool when the weather heats up by taking a cue from these celebs, who have beach dressing down to a fine art.
Rihanna’s retro bikini and mirrored sunglasses get a modern update with high top sneakers, a denim shirt and a patent leather purse.
2. Kate Hudson
The beach is the perfect place to rock your natural texture. Keep it tame with a silky scarf, like Kate Hudson does, for when you’re playing beach volleyball.
3. Miranda Kerr
Kerr’s look is all about clean lines, with leather sandals and a ladylike shirtdress in a wild leopard print.
4. Jessica Alba
Alba’s patterned kimono adds something extra to a plain bikini. Add a panama hat and you’re golden.
5. Olivia Palermo
A flirty mini dress in a bright print, like this one seen on style icon Olivia Palermo, is a great way to cover up while still showing some skin. Add some long necklaces to funk it up!
6. Taylor Swift
The reigning street style queen keeps up her reputation at the beach in fun but sophisticated high-waist shorts and a loose collared shirt. Classy, as always!
7. Sophia Vergara
The Modern Family star proves a simple one-piece can be far from bland by adding a bold maxi skirt.
8. Vanessa Hudgens
Belt a flowy maxi sundress like Vanessa’s for a look that will take you straight from sunning on the beach to sightseeing around town.
9. Selena Gomez
Selena’s high-waist denim cutoffs, flowy tank and bohemian jewelry are a trendy take on a classic combo.
10. Miley Cyrus
A delicate gold body chain like Miley’s adds a girly but unexpected element to any beach look.
