Beach Fashion, A Lookbook From Mexico

Holiday fashion can be tricky and looking good when the temperatures start to rise is never straightforward.  The key for me is combining lots of vibrant colours to show off that tan – in the Summer you want to stand out.

When packing for any trips abroad always try to pick items that are versatile and will look good with a number of pieces and work for multiple looks.  I’ve always loved Orlebar Brown swim shorts for that exact reason, they are versatile and look equally at home with a shirt or polo as they do with nothing up top at all, the ideal shorts for a beach trip.

Here’s a few of my favourite outfits from my recent trip to Tulum, perfect for those Summer holidays and chilled days on the beach.

Flamingos & Coconuts:

Patterned shirts are all the rage this season and this pink flamingo number ticks all the boxes.  I particularly like how fitted it is, tight on the arms and ideal for both days on the beach or evenings in town.

A Testament To Cuba:

TULUM1-377

The Cuban collar, also known as the camp collar, has stormed back into the trends this Summer and is a new favourite.  A refreshing alternative to the classic collar it’s a great way of adding some detail to your beach look.

The Grandad Collar:

Much of today’s menswear is inspired by trends from yesteryear, with the prime example being this grandad collar shirt.

A more casual alternative to the classic shirt collar, it’s well-suited to warmer weather and looks great with a few buttons undone for the ultimate beach look.

Beach Stripes:

TULUM1-63

For obvious reasons, knitwear is not often associated with the Summer.  That said, this cotton knit polo shirt is breathable enough to be worn throughout the warmer months and makes a nice change from a cotton shirt for the beach.

The striped detailing is stand out and looks good when paired with patterned shorts for a real statement holiday outfit.
