Picking a pair of great beach wear is often a task that will send shivers down women’s spine. Will you suit a bikini, can you pull it off, what colours, will a bathing suit pull you in more? What do you wear over it? All those questions run through your head.
I have a fabulous tool where based on a few simple measurements you will know exactly what beach wear suits you. Not only that also pants, skirts, dresses and any other garment you can think off. All in one space called My Private Stylist. A nifty collection of your best styles, available online from your phone, iPad or computer so you always knows what looks great.
Here is what that looks like. Simply hundreds of images that suit you, your proportions and your body shape. And you will have your Personal Stylist (me) ready to set this up for you so you know you are all set to you.
The online style program is normally $89 and for a limited time you will receive 20% off just because summer is almost here.
Here are my tips for picking great beach wear you won’t find in the style portfolio.
1. Pick a great colour or pattern. If you have a really great idea what colours suit you, treat your beach wear choices the same. Perhaps black is not one of your best colours. Beach wear is not a place to start bringing out this colour as it will make your skin look so much paler. Think of colour contrast and pattern size.
If you don’t know your best colours, oh my gosh having a colour session will make above so easy with your own colour swatch and personalised colour portfolio. These can be done online or in person.
2. Pick a shape you like to wear. I personally like a side tie bikini as it is the least amount of string around my hips. I allows me to stick to my size as I can tie the side as much as a like. It also makes my shorter legs look a bit longer as the side goes up.
For that reason alone I do not like wearing bathing suits as much. My longer upper body makes it harder to get a great/comfortable fit. It is a bit like finding your favourite underwear fit. Figure out what works and stick to it.
3. Pick a top/strap that is functional. Many bikinis or bathing suits are designed to look great on a towel or beach chair. But if you like a bit of a dive or swim or dip in the pool you need to work out the best fit that will actually stay on. It makes the day a more relaxed one.
