Keep comfortable and relatively cover up in this frilly one-piece swim-suit from Dorothy Perkins. It’s buttercup-yellow shade will have you feeling like a ray of sun. Grab it for RO16.8.
A light, gauzy cover-up does double duty to protect your skin from the sun while keeping you looking stylish as you hit the ice cream shop for a post-beach cooldown. We love this maxi-skirt from River Island in the season’s hottest pattern – scarf-print! Snag it for RO12.5.
Who needs footwear at the beach, really? But if you must, make sure they’re casual and comfy – like these rainbow-hued flip-flops from Call It Spring. Walk away in them for just RO4.9.
Throw ‘em some shade and keep the sun off your face with a wide-brimmed straw hat. We love this version from Aldo Accessories, that’s more than a little island-inspired! Price: RO8.4.
Keep the sun out of your eyes with a chic pair of shades that are equal parts function and fashion. We love these rose-tinted oval frames from M&S. Own them for RO2.8.
Keep your belongings dry and those pesky grains of sand away from your valuables with an oversized work-horse of a beach-bag. We love this stylish and sturdy version from Scout that retails for RO16.9.
Why risk a surf-side selfie with your smartphone when you can bring along a camera that was built for the elements? The Olympus Tough TG-5 12 mega-pixel digital camera is waterproof, shock-proof, and dust-proof. Done and dusted we say! Price: RO153.7.
