Just because you have a pair of swim trunks in your closet doesn't mean you're all set with your beach style. It just means that you can go swimming without breaking any public nudity laws.

To really look good when hanging out in the sea and sand this summer, you're going to want a stylish beach outfit or two (or three or four). Whether it's cloudy and cool or hot and sunny, day or night, here are four looks for every beach scenario you might encounter this season. 

1| A Sunny Day at the Beach

Basically, the meat and potatoes of your beachwear—a linen tee, cool swimsuit, and a pair of slides. It's a look that will work for relaxing on the sand, throwing around the football, or heading to the boardwalk to scarf down some margaritas and fish tacos.

Given the proximity to water, beach weather can be occasionally temperamental, even in the summer. For those cool and cloudy days, try a long sleeve tee, airy drawstring pants, and a pair of sneakers meant to be around sand. Plus, an anorak and a hat if the weather gets super dicey.

When traveling to and from the beach, you want something that's light, comfortable, and easy to get in and out of, but that also has plenty of style. Go with a bold patterned camp collar shirt over a plain tee (unbuttoned of course), shorts that ground the shirt, and a classic pair of canvas sneakers.

4| A Beach Bonfire at Night

After a long day at the beach, there are few things better than kicking back in front of a bonfire at night. Of course, since it can get a little chilly, it's important to wear some light layers. A cotton crewneck with light jeans and some retro sneakers is the way to go. Don't forget to pack a towel in your backpack so you have somewhere to sit.
