Items Every Beachy Girl Needs this Summer
The summer is here, ladies, and that means donning those swimsuits and heading out to lay beachside and soak in some glorious rays. Before heading out to the brilliant sand and glorious surf, make sure you have all the fashion and beauty accessories you need to make your days spent in the sun as healthy and trendy as ever.
You didn’t think we could talk about beach essentials and skip skin protection, did you? By far your best accessory this summer is sunscreen, in all its forms. One great option to take into consideration is investing in a foundation that has high SPF protection. If you do choose to go this route, remember that reapplying is important, and it’s important to note just how much protection you’re getting in each application before relying on makeup as your first defense of skin shielding. Also always be sure to rock a stylish hat; whether you want to go casual with the always trendy baseball cap or find a tailored, meant-for-the-beach headwear option, it’s important to protect the sensitive skin of our scalps.
The Proper Shoes
Running down to the water in the hot sand is sometimes less than fun, as scorching temperatures can make the beach feel like hot lava. Make sure your feet are protected and set off the rest of your beach outfit by rocking the right footwear. This summer has seen a resurgence of pool slides, essentially more elegant versions of the casual flip flop, and moccasins have become a modern day classic. If you’re going to be spending your beach time on a boat, don’t forget your Sperrys and make sure you’ve got the grip and style to pull off that perfect sailor vibe.
The Perfect Sunnies
Make sure you keep those gorgeous eyes protected as well and grab a new pair of polarized sunglasses. This means splurging a bit more than what you might have spent on your current thrift store pair, but it’s more than worth the money when it comes to protecting your eyesight from the piercing summer rays. Our all-time favorites have to be Ray-Bans. You simply can’t go wrong with this ever so trendy brand. Aviators look good on almost every face shape, making them a solid choice if you’ve found it hard in the past to locate the perfect pair of sunglasses.
Summer Party Wear
We couldn’t talk about summer fashion without talking about party wear. Why? Well, the summer is filled with fun celebrations, but none are probably as built up as the Fourth of July. If you’re spending this year’s Independence Day by the beach, you’re going to need all the essentials. Are you headed to an elegant soiree? Never is there a better time than summer to rock a brilliant white dress. One third of the red white and blue, check out the gorgeous white offerings from RoseGal.com. Are you and your friends doing an all-out patriotic bonanza? Show up looking the part in some hilarious and show stopping patriotic pants, like the American flag leggings here.
Gone are the days of having to rock a two piece bikini to look sexy on the sand. The rise of the one piece is here, and the ladies of Baywatch would be ever so proud. Think beyond the probably less than flattering one-piece styles reminiscent of your grandmother or the sporty versions of swimming athletes and embrace the sexy new trends showing up all across the fashion world. The trick to rocking the one piece is finding the style that best fits your body type. The best thing about one pieces? Slap on some cute denim shorts and you can go from beach to bar in a put together that screams anything but last minute. Eberjey has some gorgeous options, with all sorts of necklines, ties, and prints to make sure you find the right swimsuit for your body.
This summer is in full swing, so make sure you look your best at the beach and soak in those rays with a smile on your face.
