11 Best Dresses For A Day At The Beach

Planning a trip to the beach? Not sure what to wear? You’re in the right place.

It can be tough to decide what the best option is for a day in the sun. You want to make sure you’re comfortable while still staying stylish.

Luckily for us, there are plenty of affordable (and gorgeous!) dresses both online and on the high street.

The first thing to think about is what cut of frock you’re looking for.

Prefer a maxi? We can see why – they’re definitely the easiest thing to slip on for a relaxed day out. You’ll want to check out New Look’s tropical print number.

Another of our favourite floor-sweepers comes from H&M. This emerald green design features glitzy detailing, meaning it’ll take you straight from the lounger to the beachside bar.

If you’re more of a midi gal, you’ll fall in love with Miss Selfridge’s 70s-inspired piece. The fringed hem is *so* en vogue.

We’ve also rounded up some seriously hot minis.

Boohoo’s denim swing design will help you nail SS15’s cool 90s trend. Just make sure you’re careful with sun cream – the thin straps will leave your shoulders exposed.

Dorothy Perkins’ floral-patterned kimono is super girlie while Oasis’s ditsy skater is a total wardrobe staple.

Keen to purchase a shift, Bardot-style piece or a shirt dress? We’ve got all of these styles and more covered.

Colour is another important thing to consider. White is THE shade of summer, but if you like to make a statement then we’ve got a bright pink River Island number that’s destined for your cupboard.

The dresses in our gallery also boast cut-outs, long sleeves, plunging necklines, zip straps… we could go on.
