Need a fab suit that flatters your 40+ figure? Here’s a look at what to wear to the beach.
Choose a Swimsuits that Camouflages Problem Areas
Two things about this swimsuit really help to camouflage problem spots – 1) The color- black visually shrinks your body 2) Ruching -I talked about ruching and shirring before being a is a favorite detail in clothes for women over 40. That’s because all that extra material arranged just so nicely camouflages any little lumps and bumps that we may not be so thrilled with. This swimsuit also has a sexy halter top instead of just straps which adds instant glamour and more shape to your bustline.
Pay Attention to Your Beachwear Cover-Up
When we talk about beachwear, beach cover up dresses for women are an important topic. Why? …because too many women throw on whatever is around, like a baggy shirt or unattractive top. This sarong cover-up, above, is one good example of what you should be wearing.
Play With a Hat
These days you need a hat and even then you have to be careful because the sun can still get at you so wear a good sunscreen. Just as everything has been color blocked this year so has this hat with its wide yellow band. It’s little details like this that make you look modern and in fashion, so also more youthful.
Sunglasses add Style
One of the most important beachwear accessories for women is a great pair of sunglasses. A word about sunglasses this spring: Go Big or go Home! Oversize is in. That’s all I have to say.
Flip Flops are Fun
Plain and simple these keep it casual, but if you wanted to dress things up you could always go for something with a little more embellishment.
In my What to Wear to the Beach contest I invited readers to unleash their creative side by designing beachwear for women over 40.From functional cover-ups to fun totes, I wanted to see the way you would style beach clothes for women our age to wear surfside.
