When it comes to a beach outing, most people think that all you need is a bikini and some sunscreen.

But a perfect bikini outfit requires more than just these two items.

You need to consider color, pattern, and fit to ensure that you look your best as you lounge in the sand.

We searched high and wide, and added filters to our searches to find the best ideas to match amazing outfits for your day in the sun!

Read on for our tips for creating the perfect bikini outfit that we hope will inspire you!

Color and Pattern:

Choosing the right colors and patterns can make all the difference when it comes to looking fabulous at the beach.

Keep in mind the colors of your swimsuit when selecting other pieces for your bikini outfit—a great way to coordinate your look is by matching different hues from within the same color family.

When it comes to patterns, go for something classic and coordinate with similar shades of solids, as these ground your outfit making it flattering and stylish.


Accessories such as sunglasses, hats, jewelry, and sandals can take any bikini outfit from drab to fab in no time at all!

For an extra touch of glamour, opt for statement earrings or a bold necklace; if you want something more subtle but still stylish, then metallic bangles or a stack of delicate rings could be just what you're looking for.

Don't forget about sunglasses—they not only protect your eyes from UV rays but also complete any beach-ready ensemble!

Lastly, don’t forget about sandals—choose flatforms or wedges if you want something that’s both comfortable and fashionable.

Cover Ups:

A perfect cover-up is essential when creating a stunning bikini outfit.

From maxi dresses that will keep you cool during hot days at the beach to light kimonos that will add an air of sophistication to any poolside look, there’s something out there for everyone!

Choose pieces made from breathable fabrics such as linen or cotton so you won’t overheat in the sun.

If you want something more unique, try pairing together different pieces such as shorts with an oversized shirt or a skirt with a crop top—the possibilities are endless!

With this guide in hand, you should have no problem creating an unforgettable bikini outfit for your next beach or pool outing!

Remember: choose colors and patterns wisely; accessorize with statement jewelry; find cover-ups made from lightweight materials; and above all else have fun experimenting with different looks until you find one that makes you feel fabulous!
