What to Wear to the Beach

What to Wear to the Beach: Seven Chic, Fuss-Free Outfits

Make a splash in our exclusive swimwear collaboration—plus these beach-friendly pairings.

By Emma Steinbergs

At M.M., we have a low tolerance for discomfort. You’ll be hard-pressed to find us wearing—and, therefore, designing—any items that require frequent fussing or don’t feel as good as they look. When it comes to swimwear, these criteria have ruled out many a cute suit over the years, but thanks to our friends at Andie Swim, we’ve finally met our match. 

With a focus on comfort and support, Andie makes swimwear you actually want to put on—no tight seams or wardrobe malfunctions to be seen. We could think of no better complement to our sunny summer collection, so we partnered up to create three limited-edition M.M.LaFleur x Andie Swim suits.

Each style features our best-selling cutout print and is made from Andie’s Eco-Nylon material, a recycled nylon milled from pre-consumer waste. It’s a sustainable take on their famously feel-good “flat” fabric, providing the same stretch, compression, and comfort that Andie fans know and love. 

Pro tip: Wear any of these swimsuits under your favorite breezy M.M. piece on your way to the beach this season. You’ll look enviably chic and save money on that cover-up you’d never wear anywhere else.

Once you’ve selected your new suit, shop our favorite pieces to pop on top.

The Amalfi One-Piece

Streamlined and skinny-strapped, the Amalfi is as classic a one-piece as it gets. Now all you need is your plushest towel, your highest SPF, and your most salacious read.

The Tulum One-Piece

The most supportive style of the bunch, the Tulum one-piece features thicker straps and a cross-back design. It’s perfect if you have a fuller bust or frequently find yourself engaged in a ferocious match of beach volleyball.

The Ventura Top + High-Waisted Bikini Bottom

Prefer a bikini? The Ventura top paired with high-waisted bottoms will not disappoint. The top looks sleek and feels like your favorite sports bra, while the bottoms offer a slightly retro look and a middle-friendly fit.

The Ventura Top + High-Waisted Bikini Bottom

1. The Siobhan Top

The ideal beach outfit involves easy silhouettes and airy fabrics. The Siobhan top fits the bill with its soft, lightweight chambray. Don’t forget to go up one size for an oversized fit you can rock solo over your swimsuit.

What to Wear to the Beach: Owen T-Shirt + Adina Short

2. The Owen T-Shirt + Adina Short

Nothing says sand and sea like a blue-and-white striped tee. For a classic nautical vibe, pair the Owen T-shirt with the Adina shorts. The Owen comes in our new signature stripe, which features fine navy and red lines for a fresh take on a classic pattern. The Adina shorts (now on sale for $75) boast an easy fit and a deep shade of navy called “night”.

3. The Giada Pullover + Adina Short

Before you say, “A sweater? To the beach?!” just hear us out. Made from 95% cotton and 5% cashmere, the Giada pullover is entirely breathable and luxuriously soft to the touch. Wear it with the Adina shorts on a warm-but-not-sweltering day. This combo will look effortlessly sophisticated (and complement your tan) if you decide to grab impromptu drinks after your day of sunbathing.

Mila Button-Down

4. The Mila Button-Down

A partially buttoned, crisp poplin shirt is the peak of beach chic. The Mila button-down features a super subtle stripe that’s timeless rather than preppy, and it works just as well over a swimsuit as it does under your pant suit. Pair it with the matching Madelyn pants for a complete easy, breezy set.

5. The Maja Sweater

Not all beaches are balmy, and for the more tepid variety, you can turn to the long-sleeve Maja sweater. It features a 100%-cotton, two-tone knit that looks striking and feels substantial. Pair it with the Shane pant for a slightly slouchy outfit that’s prepped blustery walks and late night campfires.

6. The Milano Dress

For a day that concludes with drinks at the beach club, go from sandy to swanky with the help of the Milano dress. Featuring a soft jersey pima cotton and a flowy fit, it feels like loungewear but looks incredibly elegant. In short, it’s your easiest LBD. Just slip on a pair of slides and go.

7. The Lee T-Shirt + Adina Short

If you’re heading on a luxe vacation, bring crisp white essentials you can mix and match with the rest of your suitcase. This short-sleeve shirt and the embroidered Adina shorts (now on sale for $95) are as versatile as they are lightweight—the makings of an ultra-efficient summer packing list.
