With the constantly rising temperatures, the thought of spending an entire day at the beach is becoming more appealing than ever. And, most of the time, this type of occasion is a great opportunity to leave your inhibitions aside and allow creativity to take its course. Because the style rules are less strict, juggling with proportions and textures is more than recommended.

If you’re drawn to the boho chic style, the Free People brand can certainly be a worthwhile fashion inspiration. Featuring supermodel Elsa Hosk, the ‘Ode to Summer’ lookbook certainly has a laid back attitude with a few seemingly simple outfits that are perfectly suited for the occasion, yet demonstrate a clear preoccupation towards style rules and fashion in general. With a series of interesting and rather eclectic prints, unexpected fabrics and textures and stylish accessories that are able to make a style statement on their own, standing out from the crowd and expressing individuality proves to be simple and extremely effective.

Whether you like eye-popping, monochrome airy dresses, trendy stripes and prints or simply prefer a more balanced approach, there’s a look for almost every taste. However, accessorizing is a must if we are to judge by the latest styles endorsed by the brand. If you are not exactly ready to embrace the oversized jewelery trend endorsed on some of the most important runways this summer, the long necklaces and the golden metallic bangles are a perfect compromise for an instant style enhancement. Investing in figure flattering doesn’t have to be complicated and this concept definitely holds true for the Free People brand. Finding pieces that compliment your personal sense of style and that allow you too feel comfortable without trying too hard only requires paying attention to your best features and choosing the best ways to emphasize them. Express yourself and let go of any self imposed style rules with some of the style choices endorsed by the well known brand.

While the beach cover-ups might be perfect examples of a fab, yet conservative and not-too-revealing trend that appears to have caught on lately, there’s no point in denying the fact that the crochet swimsuit is one of the star pieces of the collection. Being the perfect compromise between simple and classic, one piece bathing suits and overly revealing bikini swimsuits, the swimsuit is an eye-catching, worth considering alternative.
