Many of you will be spending your spring break near the ocean, so we’ve curated five different looks that are all inspired by the colors of sea glass.
The tiny treasures actually originate from discarded bottles, jars, and other glassware tossed into the ocean. After being tumbled by the water and sand for many years, sometimes decades, the beautiful bits of sea glass are formed.
Eye-popping ceruleans, seafoams, aquas, grays, and greens emerge from the depths and are collected by combing the shores. This soft, pleasing palette is what has inspired the five hand-picked looks we’ve selected below. Perfect for spring and summer wear, pull these on anytime you want to feel closer to the sand and shore.
1. Surfside Blue Top
A go-with-everything t-shirt is a wardrobe must, so we’ve selected this beautiful blue-gray top that puts a literal twist on a regular tee. Rayon and spandex materials mean it will hold its shape throughout the day, and the lovely sheen makes this top extraordinary. Wear it with jeans, shorts, and skirts, as well as layered under cardigans or lightweight coverups when a cool evening strikes. Dress up this piece with a statement bib necklace, or wear it as-is and let the built-in twist detail garner all the compliments. Priced at $58.
2. Serene Aqua Dress
Make the spring and summer party rounds in this gorgeous aqua dress. The fluttery sleeves and skirt hem add style and grace to the attractive minimalism of the body. The cut would be flattering on a variety of body types and offers a conservative neckline and length. This dress would pair well with wedges, stilettos, chunky heels, and even flats. Excellent for special events like weddings, showers, garden parties, date nights, brunch, and more. Priced at $388.
3. Brisk Cerulean Skirt
Bold and beautiful with plenty of flounce, this pleated midi-length skirt will quickly become a wardrobe staple. The criss-cross pattern, coupled with the pleats and chiffon-like fabric, give this skirt an almost iridescent look that’s worthy of the ocean. This looks great with white tops, like button downs, fitted tees, and light camisoles, but would also work well with other bold colors. This pairs well with heels or flats and is a great work, weekend, and evening piece—dress it up or down with accessories. Priced at $118.
4. Misty Gray Top
Super cute and stylish, this kimono-esque top is perfect for pairing with your favorite cropped pants as you stroll along the shore. Choose any color you’d like, because this gray will go with a variety of different hues. Perfect for getaways and vacation adventures, all you need is a lacy camisole, bralette, or bikini top underneath this piece and you’ll be ready to set sail to your seaside destination. Priced at $78.
5. Green Glass Dress
Light, ethereal, and modern, with just the right amount of sea glass green color to make it pop, this layered maxi will be a spring and summer go-to piece. Perfect for laid-back gatherings, vacations, shopping, lunching, brunching, and more, you’ll want to wear this dress time and time again. Pair it with heels and statement earrings to dress it up, or choose flats and a cork handbag for a casual, organic look. Priced at $198.
