Barefoot Chic Complete your summer wardrobe with these fun additions Adorn your feet with style this season as you stroll along the beach. New for Summer 2016, designer and entrepreneur Gamze Ates has created My Beachy Side accessories to give bold, free-spirited women style options for seaside summers, special occasions, and resort vacations. While searching for unique accessories for her beachside wedding, Ates came up with the idea for My Beachy Side’s first product, an accessory that glamorously adorns the legs and feet. In a moment of creative clarity, she commissioned a jeweled knit “barefoot sandal” to complete her wedding day look. After endless compliments and inquiries, Ates knew she had stumbled upon something special and soon launched My Beachy Side with a selection of unique hand knit designs created by women artisans in Turkey. The company currently boasts a catalog of accessories, which are available in a spectrum of colors, embellishments, and convertible styles from ankle length to knee-high; they can also be worn on the hands and as chokers.

“My Beachy Girl keeps her Chakra’s healthy, embraces the big waves, and loves Boho style,” explains Ates. “She is in tune with current events and understands what affects one affects all.” Design inspiration is taken from Ates’ Turkish heritage and cultures around the world where women embrace adornments and their symbolism, including Africa, India, and the Mediterranean. In keeping with its global designs, My Beachy Side has a social consciousness element, giving Syrian refugees and Turkish women opportunities to better their lives. The company works to help these women in difficult situations to become manufacturing vendors for Beachy products, providing financial support and building self-esteem. Footloose fans can shop for My Beachy Side at specialty shops around the globe, including shops in Brooklyn, St. Barts, Dubai, Tel Aviv, and Saint Tropez. Where there is sun and sand, you’re likely to discover My Beachy Side, www. mybeachyside.com.
