There is a common misconception that beach fashions need to be revealing; however the Free People 'Ode to Summer' lookbook shows that this season, that is simply not the case. The shoot stars Swedish model Elsa Hosk in a collection of coastal couture looks, looking fabulous in every shot.
For summer 2011, there have been an abundance of lookbooks that showcase more conservative one-pieces and beach coverups, as opposed to itty-bitty bikinis that have been favored in summers past. This particular collection has a variety of creams, whites and punches of color that help it achieve its mixed-and-matched appearance.
Those looking to invest in some beachwear this season should consider the Free People 'Ode to Summer' lookbook as inspiration. These loose-fitted, knit coverups and flowing frocks look like the perfect choices to don for some fun in the sun.
