Musings of a Fashionista

Posts Tagged ‘beach

As promised (and a tad bit late) here is my post on Beachy Style.

There are many places you can go on the beach.  I will explore the style elements of each.

  1. The Boardwalk.  On the boardwalk, you can wear pretty much anything, as long as you keep it casual.  No heels, please, unless you want to get stuck and fall.  Most popular were short-shorts.  I only saw three rompers, though those three girls rocked it.
  2. The Beach.  Your bathing suit, sunglasses, sunscreen and a cute cover-up.  In terms of cover-ups, you can wear shorts or a sundress.
  3. Restaurant: Casual.  Wear a sundress (no bathing suit under it this time) or a floral shirt.  Pair the floral shirt with denim to keep it casual, but then accessorize with some gladiators (love gladiators!) and sparkly nails.
  4. Restaurant: Fancy.  Fancy dress or a skirt.  Accessorize!  Put on makeup.  Most of the other times on the beach you don’t want to wear makeup because of the heat, it would melt and run off.  Ew!

Basically, beach style is pretty care free because, well, you’re at the beach!  You shouldn’t be worrying about your outfit.  But if you have to, use the tips above.  Enjoy your vacation!  Or, if you’re not on vacation, take the tips and just imagine you’re at the beach 🙂

The Fashionista

I went to the beach a few days ago.  So I spotted trends (while laying on my own towel tanning) to put together a post for my blog.

Basically, there were a lot of black bikinis for the girls, and plaid shorts for the guys.  But to better explain, I made a Polyvore set.

I’ve noticed that patterns are back, especially argyle and floral print.  Just remember to keep one pattern per outfit, including shoes.

Also, remember not to wear one color all the time.  Have two favorite colors, I do.  All black never looks good, unless you’re at a funeral.

Spring outfits

I think leggings are still in for Spring.  Denim short shorts (around mid-thigh) are the way to wear denim.  And for the beach?  Wear bold colors.  With shorts as a cover up.  Old Navy flip flops are still the best deal around, so go and stock up.
