Summer is in full swing, are you dressed to impress? With these adornments, youâ€™ll be the hottest gal on the sand.
Cat Eye Sunnies
Shades are integral beach wear, if not to protect your peepers, at least to hide them so you can shamelessly people watch. This summer, toss aside the massive, owl eye frames of recent years and yes, even your trusty Wayfarers. Instead, opt for a pair of vintage style cat eyes that are head turning yet low maintenance. Youâ€™ll be pin-up chic in your beach chair checking out bronzed surfer dudes who will be checking you out too.
If you are one of those lucky ladies whose hair transforms into devil-may-care, sexy beach waves after a swim in the salt water, you can skip this step. For the rest of us who are left with an awkward, crispy ponytail, the fedora comes to the rescue, post boogie boarding. Bold colors jazz up these universally flattering caps that just beg to be tipped at a jaunty angle.
Donâ€™t be caught at the beach with a sad old reusable grocery bag. Instead, keep your sunblock, water and Fifty Shades of Grey in a stylish satchel that will get you noticed! This summer, neutral tones are matched with bright stripes that really make a statement. These totes are structured enough to work for a night out if youâ€™re one of those gals who can rally for the evening without a shower back at the hotel, yet casual enough that you wonâ€™t obsess over every grain of sand that you have to dust off later.
Will scarves ever go out of style? Absolutely not, even in summer. In place of the tassled or terry cloth cover ups of the past, choose an ethereal, free flowing scarf. This summer you will find options that are wide enough to modestly wrap up in, made from the most heavenly soft fabric blends. Vibrant coral or turquoise is always a no-brainer, as are mismatched bohemian prints that add pluck to otherwise neutral beach ensembles.
Gone are the days when most ladies could pull off a tiny string bikini. Even if your physique is fit enough to rock one, try the seasonâ€™s more demurely cut swimwear for a change of tan lines and a whole lot more security. The sun shouldnâ€™t be where youâ€™re getting your tan, anyway! Havenâ€™t you heard of wrinkles and skin cancer? Sunblock up and channel your inner Monroe or Page in one of these adorable styles.
