How to transform your beach dress into a city look? One of the questions you have to ask yourself before you pack your suitcase to a hot destination, or just go to the beach in your own country. Besides the fact that I asked myself the same question before our trip to Ibiza (yet I still managed to get a 6kg too heave suitcase..), I’m actually still in this vibe since it’s over the 30 celsius degrees here in Amsterdam these last days.
So now the answer, because how? Beach dresses are mostly very flattery, with ruffles and lace and made out of light weight fabrics – that’s why I still wonder how I got such a heavy suitcase, but anyway – in white or a bright print. Today I am wearing such a dress, because this cute one which I got at Tootz is a dress that goes perfect over your bikini, but is also easy to transform into a chic city look. All you need to add are the right accessories.
Think about adding a white summer hat and wear flattering sandals that are perfect for both the beach and the city. Don’t forget about that pedicure as well! To make your hat look even more chic, you can wrap a silk scarf around it; the more accessories you add the more you’ll make a chic outfit out of your beach dress. Think more is more, but don’t over do it! Keep it classy and try to look like your outfit didn’t took too much effort. When you can archive this you have the perfect summer look.
