Today I wanted to share some classic summer styles to keep you inspired to be as chic as possible this summer. I recently went to a hotel for a weekend stay and saw all these ladies that just looked really classy in their swimwear and big floppy hats. I always feel a bit out of place as I’m not always sure how to style myself by the beach. I usually go for a pair of denim shorts and a tank top, or a patterned playsuit over my bikini. I’m not all that creative when it comes to beach dressing for some reason. I had a straw hat for like two minutes before it disappeared from my sight a few years ago. Therefore, this post is to inspire you the reader but also myself, to take more risks and take notes from some of the world’s classic fashion icons.
I hope this helps! A lot of these are Jackie Kennedy, who is such a fashion icon and who seemed to look flawless when on holiday. And I added Diana and Grace because we all love a Princess on holiday!
