The leaves have only just began to fall and we’ve finally been able to cosy up into our oversized knits and new season coats, but that doesn’t mean I’m not dreaming about getting away for some Winter sunshine.
Inspired by the crystal clear Caribbean sea against the fine sandy beaches, heidi klein’s Puerto Rico collection plays with a simple palette of turquoise and teals against bright whites.
My summer tan might be rapidly fading, but the white triangle rope bikini has me longing for a beach far far away. It’s minimalistic, but still has an element of Bond-girl glamour that would look amazing against a deep tan at a yacht party (a girl can dream, right?)
When it comes to beachwear, I like things to be pretty understated: the white pin tuck tunic is simple and chic, almost like a man’s oversized shirt (but with the obviously girly addition of a bow around the waist.) Slip it over the white rope bikini and you’re on your way to ultimate relaxed beach glamour.
Adorned with golden embellished details, the teal Puerto Rico bikini reminds me just a little bit of something an Egyptian queen would wear (I can almost feel the breeze of some bronzed man-servant with a six-pack fanning me and feeding me grapes whilst I’m lounging on a beach cabana.) The gathered batwing dress is all-out beach glamour and could easily easily go from beach-to-bar just by adding some gold and bronze jewellery like the Aisha twisted bead cuff.
No beachwear look is complete without some practical but chic accessories. Slightly nautical in appearance is the beach bag: it’s rope handles have a rustic beachy feel. To top it off is the classic beach hat. I still adore the retro beach glamour of the fifties, and the heidi klein Havana hat takes me back to another era.
Let’s face it though, despite all of the beach glamour and bikinis, spending your time on the beach is all about the tan. The luxurious Ligne St Barthes SPF 4 tanning oil helps you achieve the perfect golden tan.
What do you think of heidi klein’s Puerto Rico collection? My favourite pieces come from the Nautical Chic collection. Full of sailor stripes and bow details, it’s dream beachwear. Nicole Scherzinger has been seen rocking this collection in Ibiza lately. If that doesn’t make you want to sack off your turtle neck knits then I don’t know what will…
Get me to a beach, pronto!
