11 Styles to Get You From Beach to Bar

Do you make plans that happen right after a beach day? Or do you build in time to go home, change, shower and then head to destination B? If you’re the second option, we don’t blame you. Who wants to wear their swimsuit and sandy hair around town? But what if we told you that with a couple of style tricks, you could turn your beach look into an unforgettable outfit that you feel comfortable in.


Pack these essential pieces to take your plus size bikini or one-piece from swim to dinner and drinks with friends! It’s like no one will even know you were at the beach—unless you want them to! You can either wear your bikini under these looks if you feel comfortable, or you can pack a spare change of panties and a bra for an even fresher feel and look. While shopping for plus size boutique clothing that can easily take you from the beach to the bar, prioritize loose-fitting and lightweight garments that make you feel confident.


The Wrap Maxi Skirt

If you have a really cute bikini top or one-piece you want to show off as you roll up your towel for the day and head to the bar, pack a maxi skirt you love that you can easily throw on. You can either let your bikini top show or you can top off the look with an oversized off the shoulder crop top.


Whimsical Kaftans

This is our favorite post-beach piece of clothing because while it’s the easiest to style, it will look the most luxe—no matter what you’re wearing underneath. These flowy kaftan dresses are loose and whimsical, and you can wear them alone or you can dress them up with dainty accessories.


Palazzo Pants

Wide leg, loose-fitting pants are the best after a long day at the beach, and they will go perfectly with your swimsuit. Put on some palazzo pants over your swimsuit and top off the look with your favorite pair of sunglasses and sandals.



Pack your favorite pair of denim shorts to slide into as you head to the bar. You can dress the look up with a crochet crop top or a kimono. Top the look off with a pair of statement wedges or gladiator sandals.



The Sarong

Similar to the maxi skirt, a sarong could totally suffice as adequate coverage for a beachside or resort bar if you throw it on over your bikini or one-piece. To elevate the look, accessorize with some dainty gold necklaces, rings or earrings. Top off the look with a pair of cute wedges or statement sandals.


Something Tie-Dye

It wouldn’t be summer 2020 without mentioning that you should work tie-dye into your wardrobe! And what better way to do so than at the beach. Pack plus size tie-dye dresses to throw on over your swimsuit for a simple look that packs a colorful punch.



Whether you like to wear your kimonos tied at the waist or open, they make for a great addition to a post-beach look. Whether you’re wearing shorts and your bikini or just your swimsuit, you can easily top off your look with a kimono for an outfit that’s perfect for the bar scene.


Jeans and a T-shirt

There are two kinds of people: One says the last thing they want to do after the beach is put on jeans, and the other looks to jeans as an after the beach staple to get some much-needed relief from thigh chafing. If you’re headed to a bar after your beach day, throw on your favorite pair of ripped jeans and an oversized graphic tee that you can knot on the side or at the front of the shirt. Add your favorite pair of sandals to the look for a laid-back outfit.



Maxi Dresses

Ditch the swimsuit and opt for a loose, flowy maxi dress that shows off your new glow. Maxi dresses are effortless to put on, and they will give you a refreshed feeling so that you’re ready to take on whatever the night may bring. To add an extra touch of style, opt for a maxi dress that you can knot on the side or one that has a slit so that you can show some skin.


Matching Sets

Matching sets are a huge trend this summer, and they also make for the perfect post-beach look. Swap out your swimsuit for a cute crop tank top and shorts set with a tropical print or bright color. Throw on some wedges and some simple jewelry. If you plan on being out in the sun some more, add a hat for a luxe look.


Crochet Dress

Nothing screams beach goddess vibes more than a crochet swim cover-up or dress. Often see-through, these dresses will allow you to show off your favorite swimsuit–even at the bar. They are very breathable, come in a variety of lengths and they look stunning on curves.


Now that you have endless possibilities and style inspiration for your post-beach bar outfit, have some fun in the sun! Remember to pack a pair of shoes that you can slide on after you get out of the sand so you aren’t walking around in uncomfortable sandy shoes all night. You can also elevate your beach look with accessories like sunglasses, necklaces, rings and bracelets so don’t forget to pack a few pieces that make you feel radiant. It sounds like you’re ready to hit the bar or the club!
