With Memorial Day weekend comes the unofficial start of summer, and that means weekends by the beach! Achieving a boho chic style is ideal for beachside living, since it incorporates the casual free vibes of the ocean and sand with the classy elements of sophisticated beach town style. Romantic boho style dresses from Amanda Uprichard perfectly capture this balance, while fun breezy blouses from Vintage Havana exude a relaxed vacation vibe. Off the shoulder dresses and tops, beachy botanical prints and casual nautical stripes are top beach trends to try this summer, as well as classic bohemian styles like embroidery, ruffles, and paisley prints. Take these trends for a whirl at your favorite Long Island beaches, whether you prefer the North Fork bay beaches or the fun ocean days of Westhampton Beach.

So whether maxi or mini is your preference, this pretty print can find it’s way into your wardrobe and even into your suitcase for weekends at the beach!
Blue and white nautical stripes always evoke a beachy feel, so what better place to wear this striped top than to the ocean! This Vintage Havana off the shoulder top features flirty ruffles down the sleeves and a drapey shoulder for a relaxed yet romantic look. Dress it up with white jeans and wedges like we did here, or make it more casual with cutoff denim shorts and Tkees flip flops. Either way, this nautical stripe top embraces summer trends and boho chic beach vibes with flawless summer style. Easy to wear all summer long, it feels especially fitting for weekends by the beach when a delicate balance of stylish and comfortable must be achieved.
This white top was made for a day playing in the sun. Embellished with a pale blue paisley print, the off the shoulder style and bell sleeve shape of this Vintage Havana top create a relaxed bohemian look that pairs well with jeans and shorts alike. A lightweight top like this is ideal as a beach coverup to take out on the boat for an afternoon in the sun and wind on the open water. Wear it with the matching shorts (which were highlighted in our previous beach packing post) for a coordinated look that resembles the ease of a romper, or pair with ripped denim shorts for an edgier take on the look. Oversized sunglasses and a floppy beach hat are all this look needs for an elevated coverup ensemble on the sand or on the boat. Throw in a straw beach tote and you’re look is undoubtedly a hit for an afternoon in the North Fork.
Lastly, if rompers aren’t ideal beach wear, we don’t know what else is. This fun one piece from Glam is easy and comfy for the trek to the water, and relaxing in all day long. Conversely, it’s also cute enough, with the fun bright print and lace trim, to be worn on the street as well. The fun pattern is eye catching and girly with a touch of boho flair perfect for a day in the sun. A drawstring at the waist and a cut out back provide ultimate comfort that can easily be slipped on over your bikini to get through the beach day. We are so excited that the warm weather is finally within reach so we can wear all of these fun summer styles to the beach each summer weekend!
