10 Tips to Rock Your Beach Look This Summer 

The warmth of the sun…

A drink in your hand…

Your toes in the sand…

The beach – the staple location of “summer.”


With the warm, fresh air, the slight breeze from the ocean, and just the overall relaxing nature of the atmosphere, I can almost taste a Piña colada now just thinking about it.

It is the perfect relaxing getaway, a quick way to get a dark tan, and the perfect place to rock some of the hottest summer looks.

However, the beach has its own dress code. Most likely, you won’t find many people rocking Nordstrom’s Topshop Clear Mom Jeans that sent the internet into a frenzy earlier this year.

You will find beach-goers rocking more laid back and light outfits.


So, whether you are hanging out in the sand or just headed out for a casual dinner by the beach, here are 10 tips for rocking your beach look this summer:

1. You can’t go wrong with the floppy hat
From the immense amount of shade provided to the fact that you basically don’t have to do your hair if you wear it all day…
Just throw in the added bonus that it is absolutely adorable and you just can’t pass up throwing a staple floppy hat into your beach look this summer.
Perfect for on the beach soaking up the sun, off the beach enjoying some fish and chips, or even later on when it is Derby time – you are sure to be rocking this staple beach look even once summer is over.

2. Make your favorite kimono your new swimsuit cover-up
When you’re going to the beach, it is no secret you are looking for something light and airy, but also something that shows off a little skin since you spent all year working on your summer body.
Remember that kimono you bought last spring to wear with skinny’s and a cute tank? Time to pull it back out because it doubles as a simple and fashionable bikini cover-up.

3. The iconic white dress
Everyone girl who has been to the beach for years in a row probably has a family – or individual – picture in a white dress.
A solid white dress is a staple beach look every year. Grab one now and save it for next year, too! It is the outfit that just keeps giving as you use it year and year again.

4. Shop for the crop top
Crop tops are a trendy way to beat the summer heat. Try pairing it with your favorite floral maxi skirt for a cool and fashionable formal look.
These make a great pair for a night out!

5. Printed palazzo pants
The loose-fitting style makes them super comfy, while still being super fashionable.
These are great for when you just need to slip something on super quick but still want to look like a million bucks.

6. Graphic tees
Graphic tees are probably not the first thing that come to mind when you think “summer beach look,” but…
The quirky labels found on them can be beach-related. Find a graphic tee that expresses how feel about the beach so you can sport the beach even when you can’t be there.

7. Big, button up
Like the kimono, a button up that is just a size too big can make the great bikini cover-up.
It is light and can be buttoned all the way up to protect your upper body from sun rays or left unbuttoned to show off your swimsuit while still shading your shoulders.


8. Jean shorts
Jean shorts are just a summer staple in general. But, they are even better for your summer beach look!
Throw a pair of jean shorts over your swimsuit and leave them unbuttoned for a casual, trendy beach look.


9. White pants
White pants and the staple white dress go hand-in-hand. If dresses aren’t your thing, then the white pants are a beach picture must-have.


10. Large handbag
Once you have your outfit just right, it’s time to focus on getting your towel and shades to the beach.
Grab a large handbag to double as a purse and a beach bag. Large handbags without any dividers in the middle are the best so that you can just throw everything in it without organizing it.

Menswear OOTD

To me women in men’s clothing allure a certain je ne sais quoi. And let’s be honest, us women wear anything better than men.

Privé: All Black Affair

Three events were happening on Saturday night and yet Garden Lounge was packed with an audience moving to the beat of international DJ Yves Larock. Opening for Yves was DJ Bullet who spiced up the crowd with raggaeton and a bit of reggae. Later, our very own DJ K9 took the stage with his famous set of Hip-Hop and had us dancing until dawn.

For such a small place, we were not sure how the set up for such a famous DJ would be. The deck was transformed into a VIP section with all black couches. Inside the restaurant was supposed to be a Hip-Hop room but it seemed like the crowd preferred the outside atmosphere, enjoying the sound of Yves Larock.

Being an all black affair, it was no surprise that almost everyone at Privé were in black which added an extra luxurious feel to the event. We were not able to get much pictures due to the small space of Garden Lounge but we saw some fun jumpers, some leather, and a lot of cropped tops. Besides who doesn’t look good in black?

Just Cito Fashion Show : Féline

IMG_1275

Have you ever walked in to a place and are just instantly transported to somewhere else? In this case, the ladies at Just Cito Boutique have truly outdone themselves. The red carpet at the entrance, the beautiful chandeliers dangling about, and the assortment of real roses were a beautiful touch. They manage to create a sexy and intimate affair all the while having quite a big crowd.

Myria Charles the singer, humorously started off the soirée before presenting the women behind the event.The fashion show in itself was beautiful. The very elegant yet absolutely seductive style of the Vorbe sisters was apparent in their store’s clothing. The candlelit feel gave the entire affair a sensual air, and let’s face it, everyone looks better under candlelight.

The models were of various origins, mostly haitian ladies, but they were all, and I mean all, gorgeous. I’m almost positive every woman in the audience hid their significant other’s eyes during the more racy moments.

IMG_1279The model who stole the show was the one and only, mother of the heads of Just Cito, Marilyn. She step out at the end of the show as a surprise, and looked so regal it warranted the standing ovation she got.

Best Dressed Couple

Who says a couple has to be in a romantic relationship?

As promised, our best dressed couple by a landslide are two besties that always manage to make heads turn when they’re together.

Although we saw plenty of originality and individuality at LAVISH no other twosome came close.

When Haiti meets the Upper East Side

We all love weddings.

The exchange of vows, the first dance

Our favorite part is the dressing up: Ladies in gowns, men in tuxedos…

Or like this one … a la Chuck Bass

Rumors

An eclectic set-up in the gardens of Karibe, a titillating show, and a wild after party, Rumors delivered everything it had promised.

International models walked down the runway to a cheering crowd wearing vibrant bathing suits from Calle Swimsuits and local store “Moi”. As exhilarating as this show was, applauds and cheers continued throughout the night with the performances of Jperry and Team Lobey.

Max Vangeli

For the second time, international DJ Max Vangeli graced us with an amazing performance last Friday at Tara’s. This time however, the dancing took place in a more intimate setting called “Il encuentro” behind the usual monster stage. Vangeli played for a roaring crowed who wildly agreed the music was great.

HNPyjCPZJ5Jj7LeKLHYuSa3b8cVKFAt3GpVaa3QAMpE.

Dear fashionistas and fashionistos, we are so happy to see the women stepped it up this time. We saw colors, different cuts, and jersey was not so much “de rigueur”. To our dear men of the evening, yes you also had shinning moments, but ladies, we side with you this time.

Stay tuned for RUMORS this Friday. We will be picking the best dressed lady of the night.

Dress to impress people 😉

Invasion

     Was that a party or what? Invasion my friends, was a crazy spectacle for the ears with DJs K9, Bernard Chauvet, Franco the Saint, and Joachim Garraud, special guest from Paris (ou lala), but let’s face it, dear fashionistas and fashionistos, the party was way more of a mind blowing experience for the eyes. Haiti’s first 3D party was a success, and all the props and applauds go to Black Palm Events and its amazing team. The stage made of LED lights gave a HiDef surpassing all expectations (Were we really on EDH?), and for the first time, Fashion Ayiti was there to capture all of the best fashion moments.

IMG_5918

We all know (because we’ve been there), that most of us go on big shopping sprees right before December and the summer season. We feel for our wallets, and throw a tiny b**** fit when someone else bought the exact same thing. It was all apparent at Invasion. We saw some crazy combos, some slick outfits and lots and lots of short jersey dresses.

Guys in interesting pants... Yay!

Ladies, as much as it pains us to admit, the guys took this one. We saw a lot more originality, sleekness and all around swag from the men. Yes you’re gorgeous and your legs go on for days, but we wish you would take more risks with fashion.  Short doesn’t necessarily mean fashionable and more coverage leaves more things to the imagination. We now give a small round of applause to the guys who truly set themselves apart, made this night a little more vibrant and showed us the true meaning of personal style.

Talk about individuality
