Ok, so you know I’m a beach dress girl when it comes to outfits for the beach. Long, short, bold, solid I don’t care. As long as I can comfortable and sexy in it! When it comes to beach shorts I always bring a pair with me to the beach despite wearing a dress or a playsuit. Why? I’ll tell ya.
For me a beach short is part of my beach bag because of practical reasons. I personally don’t like to walk around in only a bikini when I’m getting drinks at the bar, go to the toilet or get something out of the car. I just quickly throw on shorts instead. Silly right?? A bikini babe that doesn’t like to walk around in her bikini lol! No, it’s not that I don’t like it, it’s just that I like to leave something to the imagination…

So for me wearing beach shorts is mostly something out of practical necessity but sometimes, sometimes I like to go all out on the shorts. And I don’t mean bling hotpants, but fashionable shorts with decent quality that you can wear all day. I’m talking about day-to-night beach shorts. Combine it with a beautiful top and cute sandals and you’re ready for the beach party afterwards!
My favourite brands for beach shorts are Free People (because of the boho styles and price), Paloma Blue (because of the beautiful colors and prints) and Melissa Odabash (because of the quality and the fact that I can match it with my bikinis). I always make sure that I have about two or three solid beach shorts that I can literally wear with everything and the rest have to be amazing stand alone pieces that attract all the attention as soon as you enter the beach.
And just as with bikinis and one pieces, don’t wear shorts that are too small. It creates unnecessary muffin tops and will make you look bigger than you are. The white shorts that I’m wearing in this image is from this years Ondademar collection. You might think it’s see-through but that’s because the bikini bottoms I was wearing underneath were wet. Just so you know ;)
Whether you wear beach shorts just out of comfort or you would like to make a statement, find you new pair in my best selection below and start showing your legs. The summer is coming ladies!
