The beach style has always had a special place in the fashion industry. It is known for its laid-back and carefree vibe that embodies the spirit of summer. The beach style is not just a fashion trend, but it's a lifestyle that inspires fashion designers, jewelry makers, and fashion enthusiasts worldwide.

The beach style originated in the 1920s, when Coco Chanel introduced the concept of resort wear, which was meant to be worn by women on their vacations to seaside resorts. The resort wear was inspired by the easygoing and casual lifestyle of the beach, and it was characterized by light fabrics, loose-fitting clothes, and vibrant colors. Resort wear soon became popular among the affluent, and it paved the way for the beach style we know today.

Beach style has since evolved, and it's now a popular trend among men and women. The style is all about comfort and simplicity, and it's characterized by flowy dresses, shorts, crop tops, and flip flops. It is perfect for a day at the beach, but it can also be worn in the city to bring some summer vibes to your everyday life.

When it comes to jewelry, the beach style is all about natural and organic materials. Jewelry that brings into its design a little bit of the sea and the beach as inspirations are some of the types of pieces that can be incorporated into beach style. These jewelry pieces not only complement this easy going style, but also add a touch of elegance and sophistication.

Shell jewelry such as our ever popular Tusk Shell Earrings and Tusk Shell Necklace are perfect examples of beach jewelry that can take you from lounging by the pool to cocktail hour. Mother of pearl jewelry, coral jewelry, and shark tooth jewelry are also popular beach jewelry options. An early shell jewelry trend that took off in the 70s was the Hawaiian puka shell necklace, worn by surfers and those who embraced beach style.

To incorporate the beach style into your look, you can start by choosing clothes that are loose-fitting and comfortable. Cotton and linen fabrics are perfect for the beach style, as they are light and breathable. You can also add some pops of color to your outfit to capture the essence of the beach lifestyle. Accessories like sunglasses, hats, and beach bags are also essential to complete the look.
