Escaping Into Summer With Beach Café

Escaping into summer with Beach Café

Beach Cafe

The skies are grey, the rain is positively thrashing against the windows and by now, we’re starting to hate what waterproof mascara feels like. As our cute heels are waterlogged and we’re hidden under so many layers we’re beginning to resemble the Michelin man, we can think of no better time to escape for a little sunshine and booking a getaway.

The very idea of putting together an out of office reply right now is uplifting and as firm believers of that a suitcase filled with classy outfits is the key to an unforgettable trip, all holiday planning begins with the clothes, specifically beachwear.

When swapping our cashmere for kaftans, we’re heading straight over to Beach Café. Sunnies? Check. Sarongs? Check. Beach jewellery? Swimsuits? Check.

As the first online store to combine designer swimwear with magazine style travel pages, Beach Café take the palaver out of holiday shopping by catering for all your needs on one site. Not only do they stock the like of Melissa Odabash, Seafolly and Juliet Dunn and a gorgeous range of accessories, the site also includes reviews of resorts, news on the latest boutique hotels and a handpicked selection of travel guides. If their delectable edit of swimsuits and bikinis is anything to go by, they’re tastes certainly align with ours. We like to think of it as shopping for swimwear with a fabulously, chic and well travelled friend who not only knows what we look good in but has the inside scoop on all the most marvellous places to stay, wherever you may be going.

Of course swimwear shopping can be testing at the best of times and purchasing swimwear online can be a departure from what you’re used to but help is at hand. Beach Cafés team of fit experts ensure you not only look divine but also that you feel every inch the beach goddess in your purchases. Their wide array of styles mean all body shapes are catered for, whether you’re trying to find a bikini to that complements both your ample chest and slim hips or a one piece that can add curves in all the right places. If you want to take things a step further they also offer a full styling service, simply tell them where you are travelling to and they can pull together the perfect holiday wardrobe for your destination whilst your time is better spent practising poolside posing.

Spring/Summer 2014 swimwear

We’ll be packing the L*Space Audrey Bikini Shell for lying on the beach and turquoise hues in the Sofia by Vix Aliaga bikini make it a great style for the pool or the sea, whilst the vibrant Sofia by Vix San Isidiro set is best accompanied with a sun lounger and a cosmopolitan.

The Vitamin A Nouvel Mesh Shorts are great to slip on with a simple white tee when travelling from hotel room to poolside and we’ll be packing the Melissa Odabash Alaia top in our beach bags to throw on with a pair of espadrilles and Tom Ford sunnies before heading out for a sunset dinner.
