In San Diego, beach weather is always just around the corner, which means it’s never too soon to start planning your perfect beach babe bikini kit. Take away the stress of Sunstyling and remember a few simple tips ’n tricks to keep your water-wear collection fresh and fabulous so you can focus on more important things, like catching waves.

The iconic bikini is central to your stylish look but be sure to accessorize and update your makeup and hairstyles to complement your looks. Whether it’s a matching cover-up dress, or cut-off shorts, simple yet fashionable ideas will keep you at the top of the list.


First, it’s important to have a few bikinis to choose from. Depending on your mood for the day, pick the suit that inspires your beach vibe and will make you feel as good inside as you look on the outside. Sauvage Swimwear offers an array of glamorous suits to give any girl the chic summer look she desires. With multiple styles and fits, you have an array of choices, whether it’s a two-piece or a monokini. Never underestimate the importance of having at least one versatile, ready-to-go bikini and cover-up. Dress up a little with a matching cover-up dress, which will give you the flexibility to be on or off the beach in a flash.

Casual beachwear can come in handy when you go directly from the beach to a restaurant for food and drinks. Casual is good for those days when you want to go to the beach and you’re admiring the waves from afar.

Wearing a Mediterranean-inspired mosaic print will satisfy your inner bohemian while you soak up some sunshine. Enhance your look by adding messy beach waves or a textured braid to complete your boho-chic look. The same look is easily paired with the quintessential daisy dukes to give a little extra coverage when you want to run around town.

For a more playful look, you may want a bold pink and white checkered pattern for splashing around in the waves. An easy way to pull together a completed look is to add in some flirty micro braids, and some chunky or braided bangles. Combine a pop of color with a bright and flirty lippie with a few swipes of waterproof mascara. You’ll be ready for action while highlighting your beautiful facial features. When you are out of the water, pat your hair dry, and take advantage of the sea salt to style your locks till you can rinse off. And if you have longer hair, a ponytail is always practical and pretty in and out of the water. Don’t forget a casually-stylish straw Panama hat for extra sun protection. And a simple side braid can keep it pulled together.

Heighten your dressy beach look for days when you are at seaside venues, beach concerts, or a beach date. These are ideal opportunities to wear a light and flowy top or dress, let the ocean breeze inspire you. When it comes to hair, natural-looking, whimsical waves are a must. Pair with a neutral or natural lip to keep your pout irresistible.


A simple, wide leather bracelet can bring extra sass. Don’t be afraid to rock a statement necklace, try an anklet as a flashback fashion statement, or get some fresh highlights to add extra flare.

Once you start thinking outside the box, you’ll see your possibilities and creativity are endless. You never know where you will find your inspiration. So, get going and start planning your cute and stylish beach ensemble for this year. And if you need some help, try consulting with friends, especially those who are fashion stylists, hair and makeup artists, photographers, or designers. Make the effort and we’ll all be enviously gazing at you and your hot new looks this year.
