Bountiful scoops of ice cream, scenic skylines and sparkling waterfronts are all within reach – only you need to narrow down your vacation wish list and organize your packing situation first.

Dressing for the beach sounds simple enough, but why settle for last year’s cover-up when there are so many more inspired options out there right now. As some must-have beachwear inspiration, we’ve turned to some of the celebrity looks that have caught our attention recently.

Good morning! Fashion takes a look at our favorite celebrity beach looks and selects the pieces you need to recreate them:

The micro top and the slip skirt

@hoskelsa

Ex-Victoria’s Secret model Elsa Hosk constantly nails her summer outfit and her tonal green beach style moment is no exception. If you don’t fancy a paddle, we love the alternative of a one-shoulder bra top in place of the traditional bikini, plus a loose-fitting zippered skirt that’s the perfect way to tan. your tummy and stay cool.

The short cardigan

@camila_cabello

Camila CabelloThe Miami beach moment certainly gives us a surf session, followed by a quick appearance on the Wimbledon court, but rest assured, we’re really here for it. The cardigan isn’t the most obvious choice for the beach, but we think a lightweight cropped knit with a matching mini skirt is definitely worth a look.

Openwork midi dress

Millie Bobby Brown managed to fit a quick trip to Sardinia into his schedule, and we’re so glad we did. The 18-year-old actress wore a green and cream dress with a floral damask pattern, midi cutouts and a metal center ring – this piece goes straight to our online basket.

The tie-dye bikini

@haileybieber

Hailey Bieber looked radiant in a triangle-shaped tie-dye bikini topped with a gold medallion-style necklace. The 25-year-old model turned to the 1960s fabric-dye trend for a daring swimsuit moment and we’re 100% on board.

The knitted midi

@KendallJenner

Kendall Jenner is a big fan of the knit summer dress and opted for a psychedelic printed piece from the Jean Paul Gaultier archives. Her vintage halter-neck dress was part of the label’s Spring/Summer 2000 collection, which she layered over a matching crop top and micro shorts from the same line.

Alexa Chung is the ultimate 1960s dream girl in a bold change with tulip motifs and a Peter Pan collar. If rich florals are up your street, check out this gorgeous mini from Dolce & Gabbana.
