Gone are the days of just throwing on a cover up and heading to the beach. This season, it's all about the total look, and no knows that better than our favorite celebrities. From Bella in a ball cap to Gigi channeling her inner cowgirl, the inspo for accessorizing is endless. Below, check out how to style your perfect beach look, because let's be honest, now's the time to squeeze in those last few summer instagram posts.
Intimidated by all of the accessorizing options out there? Start with the small things (it's true, sometimes less is more). Even just simply layering necklaces, like Elsa Hosk did here, instantly transforms that plain white bikini you've had in your drawer all summer. For a pop of color add a silk hair scarf.
Take it from Joan Smalls: it's okay to get all matchy-matchy when the thing you're matching is the ocean. Pair turquoise blue jewelry with a sporty black one-piece to create a look as fresh as the water you're in.
What better way to rock your crochet-kini than adding a hint of the Wild West (à la Gigi Hadid)? Buckle up that western belt you thought you would only wear in the fall and pair it with a vintage bull necklace and your look is almost complete. Finishing touch? A gold tone aviator.
Make like Kaia Gerber and trade your typical straw fedora for a bucket hat this summer. Is there a trendier way to block out those UV rays? Don't quite feel like you're on the beach? Add a puka shell earring and you're there.
Accessorizing doesn't mean you need to be bedazzled. If you're going for a sportier look like Bella Hadid's, it's actually all about the practical details. Opt for a ball cap and hands-free fanny pack, and you could easily go from beach to baseball game.
I think it's safe to say the hoop trend is going absolutely nowhere. Pair a medium-sized hoop with an oversized straw hat, like Emily Ratajkowski. This summer, our straw hats are getting quite the update—the bigger the better.
