How to Lean Into the Surf Style Trend—No Board Required


Maybe it is the return of Y2K fashion (who didn’t envy Kate Bosworth’s bikini game in Blue Crush?) or the phenomena of last year’s hit HBO show The White Lotus, but tropical surf-inspired style is having a moment. Whether you have big vacation destination plans or will simply be sunning in the comfort of your own backyard this summer, you will definitely want to infuse your warm-weather wardrobe with a little bit of surf style.

Taking cues from the runway, we saw retro-inspired prints on mesh separates at Anna Sui mismatched with crochet. Cabana shirts were styled with baggy, low-slung board short bottoms and itty bitty bikinis at Coperni for that effortless California feel. And Isabel Marant’s show was infused with sun-soaked colors and block prints, with a standout styling moment in the form of a strappy bikini top layered over an oversized tee and nylon shorts.

Getting the look is easy. Stick to core categories and mood-boosting colors and prints that you will want to reach for over and over. Camp shirts will take you from beach to street, bikinis adorned with ’00s-inspired hibiscus prints will be your must-have swim update, and don’t forget the fashion-forward return of flip-flops and beachy bijoux! Below, check out all pieces to get the surf style look this summer.

Cabana Shirts

A lightweight, oversized camp shirt injected with bold colors and graphic prints will be your go-to on hot summer days ahead. Throw one of these shirts effortlessly over your swimsuit for an easy cover-up solution or style with baggy denim for a casual day look.

String Bikinis

Look for an itsy bitsy fit in the form of Y2K surfer cool for your summer swim update. Classic triangle tops and string bottoms are a must. Tropical prints that range from funky to fresh will be your ticket to swimwear gold this season.

Board Shorts

Designers covered all the bases with board shorts ranging from the extremely fashionable to functional. Silk, nylon, and of course true waterproof fabrics will fit any vacation scenario this season. Create a full set with a matching blouse for an easy outfit solution or pair with a classic tee for a relaxed feel.

Fashionable Flip Flops

Who doesn’t love a throwback shoe? The flip flop has been trending and these styles fit right in with the surfer feel. Try a more feminine kitten heel version to dress up board shorts or a pillow-like cushion style for every day.
