Get the Look: Beach Vibes for City Lives

If you’re like us, the warm weather has you dreaming about escaping to the seaside. But even if you live miles from the coast, you can bring a beach vibe to your city life with a few effortless pieces. That carefree attitude starts with adventure-ready footwear and Sanuk has you covered with its blissfully comfortable sandals in a rainbow of prints. We were inspired by the vibrant Sanuk Yoga Sling 2 sandals — so named because the footbeds are made from actual yoga mats — to put together three looks that can take your spirit from the city to the beach and back. Get inspired by our chill, seaside-chic picks of crocheted pieces, woven accessories and jewelry made from natural materials. These are three outfits that are sure to make you feel like you’re on a permanent beach vacation, no matter where you are.

Look #1: Resort Chic

Whether by the beach or at a street-side cafe, sunset cocktails call for an outfit that shows off your own glow. An ombre swing dress pairs elegantly with resort-inspired accessories like a gold coral cuff, bright ikat clutch and twinkly statement necklace layered with natural stones in contrasting hues. Put together an evening look that doesn’t take itself too seriously by adding a relaxed pair of flat Sanuk Yoga Sling 2 sandals in a fun melon tile print, and prepare to see where the night takes you.

Look #2: Rooftop Pool Party

Rooftop pool parties are a great way to experience a bit of the beach even in the city. Let your outfit echo the DJ’s island vibes in a one-piece with flirty cut-outs matched with shredded denim cut-offs. Accessorize with retro-inspired round sunglasses and a floppy straw hat, then finish your California dreamin’ look with Sanuk’s Yoga Sling 2 sandals. The palm print in sun-saturated colors almost makes you feel the sand between your toes.

Look #3: Easy Beachy Weekend

Your weekend look should be as up for anything as you are. Make fun a priority in a super-comfy pair of go-anywhere Sanuk Yoga Sling 2 sandals. The congo print plays well with the subdued tropical pattern of these breezy culottes, and a crocheted halter crop top flaunts sun-kissed skin. The only accessories necessary are a stack of classic wooden bangles and a black woven carry-all tote and you’re ready to get out of the city and drive to the beach with the top down.
