Staff Faves: Beachin' Looks
Every day in summer is basically beach weather, so we try to take any chance we get to head over for a dip in the ocean! Since the weekends are usually the best for days by the sea, we put together three beachin' looks to go in style. Plus, we've also listed everything you need in your beach bag to guarantee entertainment while getting a tan.
LOOK 1: BOHO QUEEN
We love wearing festival attire even if we're not at Coachella, so it wouldn't be right to head to the beach in anything other than a tie-dye kimono and a head piece to our black bikini. Plus after seeing Miami Swim Week, how could we not go decked out to the beach?
Tip: If you're going to wear a pair of heels, make sure they're wedges so you don't sink in the sand!
LOOK 2: MONOCHROMATIC MUSE
Our closets are filled with black and white because we live the monochromatic lifestyle at 2020AVE. The Opposites Attract bikini top gives the perfect pop of white to this all black outfit. Also try a skirt on top of your swimwear for that flowy, paradise touch!
Tip: A wide brimmed hat is perfect to keep the sun out of your eyes and to top off the outfit!
LOOK 3: SPORTY CHIC AT THE BEACH
Casual is definitely a part of our outfit requirement, often. Pairing destroyed denim to swimwear gives the perfect sporty look to the beach. Want to channel your inner tomboy even more? Wear a baseball cap to complete this edgy look.
Tip: Bring a backpack to fill with all your beach essentials instead of your typical beach bag!

BEACH BAG ESSENTIALS:
Because no one wants to go back to work sunburnt showing you had a little too much fun over the weekend.
Remember when you told your friend that you have no time to read? Well, this is the perfect time to grab DVF's book and read about the woman she wanted to be.
Heard of the phrase "turn the world off, volume up"? Well, go ahead and tune yourself out with the perfect music (check out our Spotify "Summer Jams" playlist).
Prevent yourself from squinting the entire time and stay mysterious to the cutie playing volleyball to your left (not that you noticed or anything).
Water & Snacks
Staying hydrated is cute! The worst is going to the beach and you end up being parched and starving. Sorry, girl.. there's no waiter at the beach.
Notebook & Pen
If there's ever a time to write inspirational notes, it's when you're tuning out the rest of the world. Maybe the crashing waves will inspire you to write a poem (or creative caption for your fab Instagram beach picture!).
Tinted lip balm
Always carry Chapstick for those really hot days! Make sure it has SPF to protect your lips too. A pop of pink is definitely essential.
