If you’re on the countdown to a summer holiday, you’re no doubt spending hours scrolling for a new pair of shorts or bikini. Holiday shopping can be a departure from your usual wardrobe as this is the time to play with adventurous colours and prints, however as with all new purchases you want to be mindful that these are pieces that you’ll wear for all of your future trips to come. We have identified 6 beach-ready trends that we think will be fabulous for your upcoming holiday and beyond.

The general trend we’re seeing this year is a craving for bold, juicy colours—think tangerine, lime and fuchsia. The colours of your sunset cocktails. Individually these are all classic holiday pieces you'll wear again and again, however the trick is to have fun with the styling and layer up those prints and vibrant hues. Stand-out pieces to pack in your suitcase include a colourful Hunza G swimsuit, a 90s-style sarong and a linen button-down shirt.

Keep scrolling for the 6 outfit trends you'll see at every beach this year. 

1. Sarongs

Style Notes: Listen up David Beckham, the sarong is back in a big way. Opt for styles that feel super luxurious, thanks to the volume of fabric, elevated prints and silky textures.

2. Linen Shirts

3. Scarves
