Get Ready to Hit The Beach This Summer
With temperatures soaring, it is time to hit the beach again. Don’t worry if you think your body isn’t beach-ready yet, there is much more to you than skin. So, here are our chic fashion must-haves that are sure to make you stand out when you savor the hot sand beneath your feet:
The hat, the shades and the protection
Although these are must-have items, that doesn’t mean you have to go dull with them. Our pro tip is to go as funky as possible; wear bold vibrant colors for your hat and shades both. Also, go with the 80s look of big wavy hats and monochrome color glasses. The soaring sun and blue waves will accentuate the colors, bringing you into the spotlight. But don’t forget your skin protection — sunscreen. All that sun and glare will definitely leave its mark if you are not careful. Here is a quick guide to get you started.
Don’t forget your bag. Ditch the backpack, a large hand carry with bright summer colors will do fine along with your beach towel. Chances are your towel and bag will get mixed with others, so shop for funky unique patterns.
With basics out of the way, let’s move to what to wear. Obviously, everyone is talking about the viral red bikini, but not everyone will feel confident baring so much skin. Therefore, we opted for the next best option with similar oohs and ahhs factor, the inspirational tank tops. These expressive tops will keep you comfy and will put on a show, not with your skin but with your unique personality. Go as expressive and bold with colors and graphics as you want. Pair them with shorts made from old jeans for a hip summer look that is not limited to the beach. Why shorts, you might ask? Well, first they have pockets, and pockets hold loose cash, and second, everyone in tinsel town is rocking a bottomless, comfy look. It is only fitting that you take it to beach.
Now comes the gadgets that will make the trip memorable. For that you should stick to the basic water-resistant phone pouch, nothing fancy or pricey. It just gets the job done. Also, bring bluetooth speakers. There are tons of options available, so do shop around to get the best ones that fit your budget.
Then you will need a beach spiker. Yes you have read that right. It is just a cone with a cup holder on top. You can easily find it online or at your beach store. They are really handy for keeping your drinks from spilling on you and your towel.
That is it ladies. Put those tank tops on, get your shades ready and go berserk with the sunscreen. Be bold and confident and conquer the world, one beach at a time.
