You’ve worked hard at your beach body all year and now it’s finally time to show it off. Sure, an itsy-bitsy bikini will do the trick just fine but these attention-grabbing knickknacks will take your beach parade to a whole new level.

FANCY FOOTWEAR

No slops here. Rather saunter onto the sand in a bright pair of Espadrils. Should you happen to be near Bree Street this December, pop into their store and completely customise a pair for yourself – you can choose everything from the sole to the straps!

DESIGNER SHARK DETERRANT

Dreaming of swimming in an ocean far, far away from sharks? Us too. And while we can’t quite promise that, Sharkbanz will keep you safe from shark attacks, thanks to their patented magnetic technology, which is designed to repel sharks.

FAUX GLOW

Remember, sunburn is not chic and there are plenty of other ways to look sun kissed. Try Chanel’s Limited Edition No5 Fragments D’or and enjoy the golden shimmer, without damaging your skin!

BEATS ON DEMAND

Let the rest of the beach know that your umbrella is where the party is with Skullcandy’s Barricade Mini speakers. With waterproof design and a six-hour battery life it’s as if they were made for a day at the beach. 

VIP SEATS

No fighting for towel space here, with Macaroon’s personalised beach chairs everyone else will know, that ‘this seat is taken.’

BEHIND THE SHADES

Who says the beach isn’t the place to make a fashion statement? You’ll get some serious A-List attention in Longchamp’s new sunglass collection.

BEACH HAIR DON’T CARE

Beach days should be care-free days, which shouldn’t mean having to worry about what your hair looks like. Wrap it up in a bright Trebene cashmere headscarf and no-one will be any the wiser.

TIME FOR A DIP?

Take your Breitling Superocean with you – it’s oversized hands and hour-markers stand our clearly against the dial, making it easy to read even under water.

A YACHT-WORTHY ONE PIECE

The daring full piece swimsuit is seeing a lot more airtime these days and we think it can be a lot more sexy than miles of flesh. These SummerHeart pieces allow you to show off just the right amount of skin.
