Vintage at the beach

 

Beach holidays became popular as the car became the most common form of transport. Families would all pack up their bags and head to the nearest coast for a cheap and cheerful vacation. In the 1920s, women’s duster coats were the most popular fashion item worn on the sand. They did and do still provide Ideal protection from cold gusts of wind coming in from the ocean while also being thin and slim enough to keep the wearer from overheating.

 

Hippie beach fashion was made famous by none other than French girl Brigitte Bardot. She wore oversized necklaces of sea shells and buffered pearls. The floral sarong and wide-brimmed hat became the symbol of the rockin’ 1960s. All modern beachwear fashion takes a lesson on simplicity from Bardot’s cute outfits from that era.

Bare midriff

 

A classic look of the millennial chick, midriff outfits that go just below or above the rib cage shows off the youth of your body. If you’ve hit the gym hard in preparation for summer, you deserve to flaunt your hard work. There’s more than one way to turn heads with style and that’s by having toned abs at the beach.

 

On the other hand, nothing says beach-ready like a bikini babe. Buying the right bikini is important as the rough and tumble of games played on the beach will put stress on the design and material of the bikini. For strength avoid a purely polyester product, and go for something made out of cotton. Cotton products are tempered, and stress tested to greater levels than synthetic fabrics. Bright colors are the hallmark of seduction when it comes to showing off your bikini body, so venture out a little and pick something that will stand out from the crowd; such as a lime green or pure white.
