Top 10 Things Trending on the Beach in 2019

Are you thinking about your Emerald Isle, North Carolina beach vacation and wondering what you should pack? Before you get started, check out these hot spring and summer styles that you'll be seeing on the beach and around town this season. From the runways to the every day, we are highlighting the more wearable looks that pair perfectly with the beach. Here's what's on trend and in style!

1. Oversized Hats

Perfectly suited for the beach, big floppy hats are not only in style (when are they not, really?) but they help protect you from too much sun on your face, neck and shoulders. Win-win! Make sure you pack one in your beach bag!

2. Sensible Shorts

Tailored, knee-length, boyish style shorts (think Bermuda shorts) are what's hot this spring and summer on the beach and around town. They're great for day or night out and can be dressed up or dressed down suitable for any occasion. 

3. Tie-Dye

Yep, tie-dye is still a thing these days. While you may or may not opt for the bolder pairings of this patterns, it always works well on a beach cover-up or the classic tie-dye t-shirt, which pairs nicely with your beach vacation vibes and laid-back vacation wardrobe.

4. Neon

Here's another wearable trend that works well at the beach. Move over pastels of the past few years, neon is making a bold comeback. At least it will look good with your beach tan!

5. Sequins

Go ahead and channel your inner mermaid this summer. Don't be afraid to get a little sparkly this season. Find a little sequined dress or top then pack it for a fun and flirty wardrobe piece to add to your beach vacation outfits.

6. Solids & Prints

You can stay classic with solids or go bold with prints, the good news is that you can't go wrong whichever way you choose this season. Prints to look for include polka dots, animal patterns, geometric styles and mixed prints.

7. Fancy Flats

We love it when sensible fashion is also stylish. Choose you summer footwear however you please, but some fancy flats are a good choice. Whether it's fringe, straps or other adornment, sandals are going to be eye-catching this season. 

8. One Shoulder

From dresses to swimwear, one-shoulder styles are hot this spring and summer. It's a simple way to add style to your vacation wardrobe giving you a classic cool look and feel. 

9. Waisted Swimwear

We noticed a theme while perusing this year's hottest swimsuit styles: many of them were belted or tied at the waist. With plenty of styles, colors and prints to choose from, one thing is for certain—a well waisted swimsuit is a must-have this season.

10. One-Piece Swimsuits

While a classic bikini is always in style, you'll find that much of this season's swimwear are one-piece masterpieces. We're thankful for wearable fashion that looks and feels good! Your swimwear options should be bountiful this summer. Three cheers for that!
