Beach slip

"I love this drapey Band of Gypsies dress for its long, feminine cut and easy-to-wear print for casual and dressy date nights. The dress matches beautifully with bright gold and deep bronze accessories - a chic combination that belongs in the bold blue and white setting of the Mediterranean." - Honey and Silk

Summer is one of the best times of the year. It's warm, bright and gives you plenty of time to take off on a jet set adventure anywhere in the world! One of those destinations just may happen to be a tropical island, warm pebble beach or a sleepy beach town just a train ride away. Either way, its' time to relax, unwind and make your way to some sand and sun.

However, we at the Lifestyle Collective think that just because you are relaxing and taking in as much vitamin D as you can, doesn't mean you can't look fabulous while doing it! Take a look at our tourist chic round up of some of the best ways to dress effortlessly chic for the beach.
