What to wear on
the beach in 2018
It’s time to re-evaluate old notions of what’s acceptable. Neon, bold prints and shorter lengths are now worth considering. When in doubt, think: ‘What would Andre Agassi have worn to the beach in the eighties?’
Bright, contrast-colour panels are the minimalist’s nod to a jazzier beach look this summer.

Summer accessories have got your back this season – and other parts of the body prone to sun damage. A wise man knows that a snapback is better than any anti-ageing cream.
Miami is bright. Brights are Miami. OK, so it’s a little slice of OTT eighties, but bright shorts are the perfect fluoro canvas for less Day-Glo prints.
Take a deep dive into this season’s best aquatic prints. Skippering the plunge is Paul Smith, Vilebrequin, Riz and Orlebar Brown.

After years of being pilloried, the swimming brief is back and coming to a beach near you. Accessorise with bright slides, floral-print shirt and think slimline.
We’ll always love a geometric print for old times’ sake, but 2018 calls for a bolder, busier approach.
