Styling Tips for Cute Family Pictures at the Beach

Share on:

We all love getting family pictures clicked, isn't it? What most of us don't like is going through the fuss of coordinating the outfits for the entire family. It can always be an uphill task with varied tastes and likings, let alone coordinating the outfits for a day at the beach. 

While keeping everyone’s choice and comfort in mind is important to get that perfect emotion, captured in the image, being mindful of the natural setting of the beach is also important. Sounds all the more herculean a task, right? But why fear when we’re here! 

Here are five ideas for cute family beach outfits that would guarantee great family pictures:

1. White and Bright

A white outfit against the serene blues and greens of the beach will help you tie up the entire scenery into your picture. Whites work well in natural settings as the outfits stand out against the background and add extra light bringing the focus on the subject being photographed, that is, you and your family. 

Minimalistic yet very classy, white balances the colours of the sea, sky and sand. Pick silhouettes like cotton that are soft and flowy to ensure maximum style and comfort.

Styling tip: Choose flowy Kaftans, cotton shirts with white-on-white block prints for both adults and kids. These can be paired with light coloured bottoms to maintain the theme. Accessorize these outfits with bright pieces of jewelry or a handbag to add a pop of colour to the matching beach outfits for your family.

2. Blue to the rescue

Blue, like white, is also a colour that complements the setting of a beach. Whether you pick an indigo dress or a blue shirt, this colour is sure to add more personality to your family beach pictures. 

Softer pieces of denim are also a good choice. Think denim skirts, shorts or wide-legged culottes paired with t-shirts or tops of the colour of your choice for a coordinated family picture at the beach.

Nothing speaks class and style like a black outfit. It's the colour that suits most skin tones and brings out your features to be captured nicely in a family beach picture. 

You can put a slightly formal spin to the casual beach outfit by opting for a black knit dress or a cotton dress.

5. Bold and Beautiful

Striking colours like sunshine yellow, teal, tangerine and bright pink let you make a bold statement. They scream sunshine, joy and fun while working very well outdoors.
