6 Outfits to Wear From Beach to Bar That Are Not Only Kaftan

And All About the No Swimwear Bar Policy

Beach to bar outfits here – because the sun is up, champagne is opened, cocktails are mixed, music is on, the sea is just a few meters away, you are wearing fashionable swimwear, and it’s weekend. What else do you need for a perfect summer day? Summer days are meant for swimming and sipping sparkly cocktails by the beach, aren’t they? Just not in the wet bikini. So what to wear if you go straight from the beach to bar with no stops in between? You do know the no swimwear bar policy, right?

I get a commission for purchases or clicks made through links in this post.

Hands up who likes sipping champagne or a sweet cocktail by the beach after a long and refreshing swim! I do! And guess what? The latest trend is to go to the bar straight from the beach. Yes, this summer is all about going from beach to bar.

The only problem is that bars, especially in Europe, have this new dress code. Or better say policy as they tend to be quite serious about this no swimwear dress code.

NO DRINKS FOR THOSE IN SWIMSUITS! OR BIKINI!

Yes, you read it right. The no swimwear policy in the seaside cities and moreover in the bars and restaurants on the beach is a thing now. You are not allowed to go to the bar, not even to the bar on the beach, wearing nothing but swimwear. And no, a simple scarf around your waist won’t do anymore. So what to wear when you decide to go to the bar after a swim? I know!

WHAT TO WEAR FOR DRINKS AFTER A SWIM?

As mentioned, times, when you could sip your cocktail in a wet bikini while sitting in the poshest bar on the beach, are over. Surely we will miss watching all those tanned six-packs. Although truth be told we had hardly seen much of six-packs the last summer anyway.

Besides, this new no-swimwear policy gives you a legit excuse to pack all of your summer clothes for the summer holidays. You will actually need all those clothes for the beach this year.

So what to pack with you to make sure you dress from the beach to bar fashionably?

TRENDY BEACH TO BAR OUTFITS WITH SHORTS

Even though mini skirts are a fashionable choice to wear to a beach bar, there is nothing chicer than shorts. Preferably high waisted shorts.

A shirtdress is my favourite dress to wear from beach to bar and even office. Yes, from the beach to the office. Check my summer work outfits if you don’t believe you could wear this same shirtdress for work as well.
