Sun-kissed skin, salt-licked hair, sand-covered toes... and a wardrobe to make the beach stop and stare. We’ve got it covered...

From the white-washed Greek Islands to the hidden coves of Ibiza, Ashford Designer Outlet has a stunning array of stylish kit for a beach holiday. Keep your look classy with soft cotton polos by GANT, and camp-collar shirts by Polo Ralph Lauren, but for a bit more punch, a bold floral shirt by the likes of Sandro is a winner. Bold print swim shorts by Superdry announce your intentions to have fun, while flip-flops by Havaianas and a pair of contemporary aviator sunglasses by Sunglass Hut complete the look.

This summer, we’re channelling a bohemian beach vibe with brands such as Michael Kors and Tommy Hilfiger adopting vintage swimsuit and bikini references for a classy coastal look. Barely-there cover-up dresses by Maje and M&S elevate the hippie vibe, while a chunky pair of wedges by Moda in Pelle lift up the look in every sense of the word. Accessorise with bold geometric eyewear, a wide- brimmed sun hat, and a smattering of gold jewellery for some vintage glamour.

Kids beachwear has come on leaps and bounds in recent seasons with luxury fashion brands releasing cute and comfortable collections for sand-loving little ones. This season’s kidswear collections at Kids around, Adidas, and Jack & Jonesare fun, colourful, and full of vibrant prints and patterns. Hats are a must for protection from the sun, so check out the excellent caps and bucket styles by Levi's and Karl Lagerfeld.


Your luggage will depend on the type of beach holiday you go on, but either way, we’ve got it covered at Ashford Designer Outlet. Check out the rattan-style hold-alls at Dune or the colourful canvas totes by Michael Kors, which are the perfect size for your beachside accessories and look just as at home at a luxury resort or an off-the-tracks hidden cove. Otherwise, a smaller boho over-the-shoulder bag by Radley is a great way to accessorise your beach bar look.
