Travel Trendy This Year with These 7 Beach Essentials

Summer is around the corner and it’s nearly time for a much-needed holiday, so whether you’re heading to the fashionable island of Ibiza or the laid-back shores or Thailand, let’s face it, you’ll probably spend the majority of your holiday inches away from the sea on the golden sand of a beautiful beach. Want to strut down the beach boardwalk this year? Well, with Holiday Hypermarket you can as they have hand-picked their favourite beach buys so you can holiday in style on your next trip.

  1. Sand-proof Tote Bag

A trip to the beach wouldn’t be complete without a beach bag, right? I mean where would you put your beach essentials like your towel, sun cream and holiday read? So, if you’re looking for the perfect lightweight bag for a few hours at the beach the tote is your top pick. But with so many styles available from straw totes to slogan totes, we have picked out our high street favourites to make shopping the trend that little bit easier.

  1. Sassy Sunnies

It’s nearly sunglasses season which means one thing – we can finally wear our sunglasses without feeling stupid. Nothing says you’re going on holiday more than a pair of sunglasses, and for most, our sunglasses are on as soon as the plane hits foreign ground. So, if you want to hit Thailand’s tropical beaches in style this year a chic pair of sunnies are in order. We recommend the stunning cat-eye shape as they add a hint of elegance to any look.

  1. In-vogue Fedora

If you don’t already adore the fedora hat you soon will. This looks-good-on-anybody trend is the most glamorous sun hat to hit the fashion world – and it seems everyone in Hollywood is wearing one. But the best part is, the hat isn’t just a fashion accessory, it is also a sun shade as it will help shield your face from any UV rays.

  1. Birkenstock-style Sandals

If you’re poor bank balance can’t afford a pair of real Birkenstock then there’s no need to worry because there’s plenty of cheap alternatives, plus they are only going to get covered in sand if you plan on wearing them to the beach. This sandals cork footbed makes them one of the comfiest shoes on high street, and the last thing we want in the heat is a pair of uncomfortable footwear that makes the walk to your resort seem like a trek across the desert.

  1. Runway-ready Swimsuit

Putting on your swimsuit after months of wearing winter coats and jeans can be an unnerving thought, but if you shop the right swimsuit it doesn’t have to be. There are so many swimsuit shapes to choose from today, so it’s all about choosing the right style for your body type. Whether you opt for an elegant one piece, a high waisted bottom or a strapless number, we have complied four swimwear looks so you can channel your inner bathing beauty this summer.

  1. Friendship Bracelets

After we saw dozens of celebrities set the trend forecast with their Coachella outfit choices, it seems we can’t escape the hippy-inspired look which is currently taking over the fashion world. This throwback trend is a must this summer, and nothing says bohemian like layered friendship bracelets. These small add-ons can turn your basic bikini into something much more eye-grabbing, making it the ideal beach accessory.

  1. The Cool Cover-up

The cover-up is a must-have if you’re heading for sandier shores this year. From fringed kimonos to boho-inspired kaftans and flattering sarongs, it’s all about covering up this summer. You’ve got your bikini, you’ve got your sun hat, now all you need is a chic throw over and you’re ready for your long-awaited beach break.

Happy holiday shopping!
