Sweet Summer: Awesome Accessories for a Beach Weekend
Snatch Up These Awesome Accessories to be Super Stylish on that Beach Weekend or Holiday
The sun is shining and the temperature is rising, so you're heading off to the beach to cool off for the weekend. You don't need to pack too much in your weekend bag, just a few bikinis, a cute summer dress or two, your favorite sandals and some well-chosen accessories to give your beach look plenty of chic style.
Yes, you can wear jewelry on the beach! While you may look ridiculous adorned in jewels on a trip to the local swimming pool, you will look like a complete beach beauty with a few select pieces of jewelry. Pick items that suit the occasion and will complement your choice of swimwear and make you stand out at the same time. Think long feather earrings, anklets, stacked bracelets and body chains.

Sexy Sun Protection
It is so important to stay sun safe on your beach weekend – heat exhaustion and heat stroke are both very unpleasant things and can make you rather unwell indeed. So make sure you put on plenty of high factor sun cream and keep well-hydrated. Plus, make sure you protect you head and eyes with a pair of sunglasses and a hat, which keeps you safe and is a great way to show off some style.
The Cover Up
For every beach weekend, you'll need a stylish cover up, something you can throw on over your bikini or swimsuit so you can nip to the bar or back to your hotel to freshen up for the night. There are many options when it comes to a cover up, but if you want to stay on trend for the season choose a crochet dress or a kimono that you can nip in at the waist with a skinny belt.

Hot Hair Accessories
Hair accessories may not be ideal for splashing in the waves but they are perfect for looking good lying on a sun lounger or for dancing around a beach bonfire. For a free-spirited look that will perfectly complement your beachy waves, choose a floral crown for high impact. If you want something a little more subtle, choose a pretty floral hair grip to clip back any bangs, or secure a few small plaits in place.

And there you have it, all you need for a stylish beach weekend. You may want to pack an umbrella too, just in case.
