The holiday season is upon us but, are you beach ready?
Fear not ladies, it’s remarkably easy to feel glam on holiday with a fabulous beach cover-up.
Here are my tips for dressing for the beach
Ideally, you want a beach cover up that can be easily taken off. A tight fitting tunic may look great, but add sun cream to the heat and it can be difficult to remove and getting stuck inside your kaftan is a look to avoid!
Next, be mindful of volume. If the fabric is opaque and you can’t see through it, be careful going too over-sized as if it’s too tent-like, then it won’t necessarily be very flattering. If it’s sheer, then your body shape will still be visible through the fabric which means you can go big.
Natural fibres such as cotton are best in the heat, but be warned as they also crease. Try a thin viscose or polyester mix is lighter and much more versatile and can be screwed up in your beach bag and it will still look great at the end of the day. Plus, being lighter it can be easily washed and dried and you won’t need to spend time ironing!
There are lots of different styles to choose from and for all budgets. Work out what your preferred style of cover up is:
Ask yourself – which one do I reach for over and over again? What do I feel the most comfortable in?
Pick your style and then choose different colours (from your palette of course) so you’ll always look and feel fantastic.
One final point; Accessorise. Finish off your look with something as simple as a straw hat, a colourful beach bag or flip flops.
Enjoy and happy holidays !
