STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Surf’s Up

Sunny summer days are filled with fun adventures and trips to the beach. Lucky for most of us here in North Carolina, the beach is only a short drive away! Long days at the beach make for great fashion hunting. From trendy new styles for bathing suits to the hottest cover-ups of the season, Fashionistas/os are everywhere.

I spotted this Fashionisto on a cloudy beach day. He is sporting a black tank and neon green O’Neil boardshorts with Reef flip flops. A tank and boardshorts are a classic look for guys at the beach, but anyone can spice it up a bit by mixing and matching bright colors. We saw neon a lot on the runways in spring/summer 2012 and it hasn’t gone out of style yet. Fashionistas and Fashionistos everywhere are still incorporating neon into swimwear, apparel and accessories this summer. A tank and boardshorts are a great option for sunny or cloudy days at the beach. Let’s face it, the longer we can stay in our swimsuits, the better. Boardshorts are stylish enough to wear out to the beach shops or nearby outlet malls and make it easy to just pop back over to the beach when the weather clears up!

Fashionistos, to mimic this look, try these brightly striped boardshorts from Hurley. If you want to try a more patterned look, try these printed trunks from Vineyard Vines. For Fashionistas looking for a pop of color this summer, splurge on this handmade caftan from J.Crew to wear over your swimsuit!

The beach offers plenty of opportunities for fashion so try out a new trend next time you’re on vacation!
