I put a lot of thought into what I wear, and I’d like to think that I’ve perfected my signature style. The only place where I feel it’s lacking is the beach – a string bikini and flip flips just don’t convey my “look”. Is there a way I can keep up my style in a swimsuit, without looking like I’m trying too hard?
Sincerely, Floating along unfashionably
In a word, yes. When it comes to beachwear, showing off your signature style just takes a bit of thought. We stick to two basic tricks, with two different approaches.
The first is to stand out in a statement swimsuit. The beach tends to be a sea of triangle tops and string bottoms, so don’t be afraid to experiment with styles. If you live in printed halter maxi dresses on the weekends, try a printed one-piece halter at the beach. If crop tops and color blocking are staples for a night out, slip into a striped three-piece suit before you hit the pool. Your swimsuit should command enough attention to forgo other accessories. Taylor Swift is a great example of someone who doesn’t deviate from her look, even when she’s dripping in salt water.
The bottom line is that you wouldn’t go to work in sweatpants, and you wouldn’t go to a club in a t-shirt in jeans. Dull and drab are not in your dictionary. Why should beachwear be the exception? Use a day in the sun as another opportunity to flaunt your fashion personality. And remember, there’s no such thing as being overdressed.
