The main purpose of beachwear is the practicality and of course, to look cool depending on your style. You do want your selfies to be fabulous in order to flaunt your body, especially when you have worked hard for it. A good bikini set should be able to withstand rough environments such as the sun, sand and sea. With the numerous online shops that are available, it certainly makes it easier for you to purchase beachwear that suits your budget and style. However, finding the right swimwear and accessories can be confusing. Here are some of the do’s and don’t’s to inspire you on how to look cool at the beach.
Don’t Wear a Swimsuit With a Million and One Straps
Why not? Unless you want to leave the beach with a maze of trippy tan lines.
Bikinis with many straps can leave with trippy tan lines
Instead, opt for a simple bikini or even a strapless one such as the one from Pour Moi, which ensures that you look evenly tanned when you’re wearing a tank top or sleeveless blouse after your beach trip. Do choose one that has ample support at the bottom either through underwire or a thicker strap to ensure that you don’t have any wardrobe malfunctions. Unless you’re at a clothing-optional beach…
A Cover Up is Meant to Cover You Up
Ladies, always keep in mind of the appropriate dress code of the nearest restaurant when you are choosing what to wear over your swimsuit. You would probably be hanging out there right after spending your day at the beach for a cool drink or munchies. Well, these two aren’t going to fit in the “No Shirt, No Shoe, No Service” rule.
Instead, do add a sheer cover up that is both comfy and trendy. Other option would be a beach kimono where you can style it with a simple white swimsuit or go all out with matching trousers.
