Ah, the beach life! Sometimes, life seems better when your work life is also at the beach. Just like the travel and tourism industry. Sadly, not all industries can get away with working at the beach full time. If you’re in healthcare, sales, or admin, you probably spend a lot more days stuck indoors than at the beach!
Don’t worry, you can still remind yourself of good times at the beach through your work outfits. Whether you’re meeting with a client or stuck on a desk job, you can easily radiate beach vibes with a starfish hair clip or a chic boho-inspired top. Here are four ways to subtly add beach vibes to your work OOTD.
Wear light and bright colors.
A great way to add some beach vibes to your work wardrobe is to match beach hues. Light and bright colors are great to counter your work’s drab environment. Choose a plain white blouse with your work skirt or pants. Need to wear a formal jacket to work? Choose pastel colors like blue, yellow, or pink. For a more bold choice, use a bright colored top or bottom and compliment it with neutral colors like black, white, or grey.
Stand out with a tasteful choice of prints.
Adopt a playful beach vibe by adding prints to your work OOTD. Wear a simple printed dress and keep it formal with some leggings and semi-formal jacket or plain cardigan. Go boho chic with printed loose boho pants. Make sure to pair the pants with a plain top and classy heels. No need to find other statement pieces because the pants will be your main statement piece. Have fun with your prints--floral, fruit, and tropical!
Basket bags are your best friends.
For those who need to wear uniforms for work, your trusty basket bag is a great addition to slip in some beach vibes to your OOTD. Small, medium, or large basket bag—whatever size you’ll choose, it’ll be a great accessory for your business attire.
Sunnies on your way to work!
Wear your sunnies! It’s another accessory that complements any kind of style. Now, I know you can’t wear sunnies while AT work, but use your trusty pair on your way to work. Don’t forget to use it when you strike a pose for your work OOTD post in IG. TBH, it makes a big difference for when you want to accessorize for work!

Sport a summer hairstyle.
For those who are in sales, marketing, or administration work, try on different summer hairstyles to complete your work OOTD. If you don’t have enough time to make waterfall braids, accessorize your hair with hair clips or ties that subtly show your boho chic style.
There are so many options to add some beach style to your OOTD. Of course, the best way to add some beach vibes would be to showcase your laidback and confident self! Remember to enjoy each day at work and save up for the next beach trip. The beach awaits!
