Summer is here and so are plans for vacationing on the beach for many of us.

That Bollywood loves sun and sand is no secret. We've lost count of number of times sunny beaches -- from Goa to the exotic Phuket -- have featured Hindi films.

Thanks to that, heroines have aced the art of dressing up for their outings at the beach.

Take a cue from these hottest styles and up your glam quotient for this summer vacation!

Mixing it up

Housefull babes Lara Dutta, Deepika Padukone and Jiah Khan put their own spin on bikinis by adding a short skirt and tassled sarongs to their sizzling hot bikinis.

While Lara Dutta stands out with her colour coordinated attire, Deepika and Jiah add neon colours by way of sarongs.
