You know what they say? Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world!

That’s right, we believe the key to curating any outfit is to start from the feet. The great thing about finding the right shoes to take you from sand to bar is that there are so many options. Gone are the days when flip-flops were our only beach option. Now, jewels don’t only have to belong in our jewellery box they can also belong on our feet.

Find a great go-to classic sandal that is not only beach friendly but can also tropic like it’s hot during cocktail hour. Anything with a classic shape and some gemstones is certain to take you from sea to shore in style.


Beach hair is the best hair.

The last thing any beach babe wants is hair hassle when heading from the waves to a night out. Even the greatest beach aficionado can find any beach hair look a challenge if not cared for correctly.

The key to great beach hair is to make sure your hair is kept in tiptop condition. This means that regular treatments and trims might be needed to ensure your locks get the love they deserve. By keeping your hair in good condition you will find it that much easier to manage your beach hair and style in an effortless beach bun or boho braid for true evening fringe benefits.

A simple, light, and stylish dress looks great popped on over your favourite Sandy Swim bathing suit and wont take up too much space in your beach bag. Opt for a light fabric that won’t crease while being idle in your bag all day. We recommend a loose fitting long or short kaftan for a liberating look that you can style with a belt for some extra evening chic.

With your classic gemstone sandals, and an effortless beach bun your dress will be sure to do more than just impress.


Finding the right jewellery statement piece is the easiest way to jazz up your beach to bar look with some serious style. Look for some unique earrings that will brighten up anyone’s day, or a block color bangle to emphasise your sunny glow long after the sun goes down.

With some statement sandals, a chic kaftan, your beach hair, and your own special piece of jewellery you can rock those waves till the sun rises.


Find a small and classic bag you can easily pop into your beach bag, store your essentials and shake off the sand at the end of the day. Store your beach bag in the car and enjoy your night with everything you need by your side.

A statement color clutch or small crossover body bag is always a good idea. Pick your favorite color and dive into the night.

The important thing to remember when styling your beach to bar look is to always stay true to yourself. Wear what works for you and makes you shine inside and out. Here at Sandy Swim we strongly encourage your individuality, no two beaches are ever the same and neither are you.

You do you – always!

Sea you at the beach,

The Sandy Swim Team. xx
