Embrace the Summer Heat in Style Like Coleen Garcia and Solenn Heussaff | Lifestyle.INQ

OCTOBER 27, 2022

Whether you decide to jump into the water or explore off-beaten tropical destinations, it pays to have an outfit that doesn’t make you look like you tried so hard. After all, it’s about looking effortless—it’s a matter of having the right amount of sporty, chic, and a pinch of appeal. As Vogue.com’s market editor Chelsea Zalopany said, “The beach à deux ensemble is all about the suggestion of sex. Just the suggestion. You still want to maintain a sort of demure allure.”

Summer is again upon us and this means that you’ll soon say goodbye (temporarily) to layers and thick fabrics and make way to summery resort ensembles that will fill your wardrobe. With that, we leave you with a little dash of sunny inspiration.

When the sun dips below the horizon, up the ante and rock clean cuts and geometric prints at the beach like Solenn Heussaff. See how it delivers coverage, style, and a dash of athleisure. When choosing for your beach suit, opt for unique embellishments, cuts and silhouettes that would be a breeze to slip in and out of. Also, keep in mind to steer clear from tight jersey fabrics as those usually trap air, go for cotton, linen or rayon, and other fabrics that absorb heat and help with humidity.


Coleen Garcia

Hurrah! Long shorts are in again. Wear it the same way you’d style your midi skirt: with a sleeveless sheer top or even a boyfriend’s shirt (shhh, we won’t tell) for a more informal approach to the trend. Choose pastel shades that are reminiscent of delicate French macarons so you’re outfit can easily go from work to play. Cap it off with minimal strap heels to maximize the simplicity.

Whether you’re hitting the waves or spending your day with a page-turner, it pays to have your style in check. What Kelsey’s tropical ensemble reminds us of is a cruise. The day time calls for a practical yet star-worthy outfit that would survive your day’s activities. If you want to cover up your thigh area, a perfect solution would be a long high-waisted pair of relaxed denim shorts.

Beach time is here, folks! That means chilling by the beach and soaking up the lovely rays until sundown. Though donning barely-there ensembles could be the easiest choice, it may take a dreadful toll on your skin which will leave you looking like a human lobster. Sometimes, it is more practical to dress up in laidback bohemian clothing. Think lace-ups (or slip-ons if you prefer), knotted long sleeves, breezy shorts, and an oversized netted tote.

Maxene Magalona and Saab Magalona-Bacarro

If you’re looking for a cotton slip dress to kick off the season, look to the Magalona sisters as they rock printed frocks or opt for some variety like fringed embellishments or sheer panels. However, this trend could be a bit tricky; to keep you looking like someone who just got out of bed, consider pairing it with a cool but classic jean jacket alongside bold heels for a put-together look.
