What to wear for a beach party?

Swati SharmaAug 29 2007

Going for a beach party can be a real disaster when you don't know how to look stylish! But have no fear, as I am here to rescue you from all such wardrobe worries.

All right, enough of self praise. To start with, I must say that beach parties are really exciting, the bigger the bash is, the more fun you gonna have. So, never say no to a beach party because if you do you are going to miss a lot of fun and frolic. Where we darn our latest swimwear for a beach picnic they don't seem right for a beach party. However, if you have a beach party that is a 24x7 one, then you can pack your favorite swim suit for the day time. But for the later part of the evening or if you are going to such a party only for a night time, then make sure you don't carry your swimsuit. The reason for my statement is that the night beach parties are usually an amalgamation of a nightclub and beach, thus you shouldn't look totally like a beach person.

Coming to the wardrobe part, pick out the brightest of your dresses from your wardrobe. You can always wear some brightly colored frock with a good and bold floral print. Also, the materials used in such dresses make them a perfect beach party wear, playing the game of hide and seek with your suitors.

Many people think of denims as nice attire, be it up turns or denim shorts. But I feel that denims can get you in a real mess as with the heat piling up in the party (sure you'll dance a few steps) they tend to stick with you, making you uncomfortable. However, cotton shorts or some other cool colored shorts can be fabulous.

If you are wearing shorts or some mini floral skirt, do match it up with a floral top. No doubts, a plain, brightly colored upper would also do justice to your style.You can also put on accessories with some funky jewelry pieces and metallic belts.

As far as shoes are concerned, remember, the simpler the better. Flip flops, cool chappals, sandals without heels will be better then sneakers and heels. They just not look cool and in vogue but also are comfortable.

Bags are one of the most important items that people usually forget carrying. There are only two styles that can go for a beach party, either a very large tote or a small clutch. If you are carrying a big bag, you can put all your stuff in it but be careful not to misplace it, a small clutch on the other hand look chic enough. Do remember, that the bags also should have some metallic tint or a floral bright pattern. The clutches will look good only if they have a metallic or a strong shade. Have fun and make sure to party the night away!
