After all the press commitments for YOU, Shay Mitchell decided to go on vacation. The beach destination she chose was El Nido, Palawan. Aside from posting the beautiful scenery, we also got a glimpse of her OOTDs. If you need some beach outfit inspiration, take it from Shay. She isn’t afraid to go all-out with prints and accessories, something we can all learn to do. Get ready for summer by shopping similar pieces.
Melissa Odabash Lyon Cheetah high Waisted Bandeau Bikini
Shay’s first OOTD shot in El Nido featured an animal print bikini. Thank goodness she tagged the brand so we can cop the exact same one. It has a high waisted bottom and a bandeau top that ties at the back. If you’re worried about exposing too much booty, the bottoms aren’t that cheeky. Available online.
Sunnies Studios Xenia in black
Sunglasses are obviously a must and Shay wore a few. This pair has a big square frame. These ones from Sunnies have a similar shape and also come in lavender and coffee if you want a different shade. Available at Alabang Town Center.
Forever 21 Faux Pearl Drop Earrings
She didn’t hold back on the accessories by wearing big pearl earrings. Here’s a similar one that has faux pearls rhinestones arranged a teardrop shape. Pearls aren’t just for dinner parties now. Available at SM Makati.
I honestly need a new pair of denim shorts so I might pick up one like Shay’s. They’re a light wash, high waisted and have a frayed hem. These shorts from H&M are a similar style minus the fraying. However, the hem will change naturally the more you wash and wear them. Available at Greenbelt 3.
Mix it up
Float Carissa Mailot in wine
Another swimsuit option for the beach is a one piece. Shay also wore one in burgundy that had a plunging neckline. Float has this design but with added shoulder ties so you can adjust it to your comfort. Available online.
Mango Tropical Printed Foulard
Aside from earrings, you can also accessorize with a head scarf. Shay’s had different patterns and designs, something like this. Use this to spruce up a plain beach outfit. Available at Bonifacio High Street.
Rubi Narrah Short Frame Cat Eye Sunnies
With this look, Shay had on a different pair sunglasses. They were clear cat eye frames with tinted lenses. These ones from Rubi aren’t exactly the same but they also have cat eye frames and blue-colored lenses. Available on Zalora PH.
Seafolly Beach Basics Textured Gauze Cover Up
Don’t forget to pack a cover up. A simple black one is always a good choice. This one has a deep V neckline, rolled up sleeves, and adjustable ties on the side. Available at Rustan’s Makati.
