Style Your Swimwear With Glamorous Accessories

By: Naomi Shaw

Got sunshine, high temperatures, and friends? This summer if you’re as excited as we are you’re probably hitting the sand after a long, frigid winter. If you just can’t get enough of summer, make it last with this season’s best accessories for your time in the sun!

Cover-ups

Get some sexy sun coverage this summer with the most stylin’ beach cover-ups! Cover-ups are a great way to match your bikini or highlight it with contrasting or complementary colors. They’re also a no-brainer when it comes to getting out of the sun. What’s popular now runs the gamut from ponchos to mid-thigh tunics, which are two great options for showing off your front or drawing attention to your legs.

Also popular this season are non-traditional cover-ups like sarongs and pantsuit rompers. These are great options for several reasons. Sarongs can be draped across the body in several different ways, allowing for either casual or more dressy looks when it comes to your bikini body. Rompers are great because they’re easy to put on and can be worn into an establishment for post-pool plans!

Sunglasses

Now onto every beach babe’s favorite accessory – the shades. Some of you may actually go to

the pool to hangout and socialize, in which case you should bring sunglasses. In right now are sunnies with a distinguishing feature, like colored mirror lenses, thick plastic frames, rhinestones, studs, flowers, or other accenting flair. The indie or bohemian look is definitely hot right now, so if you want to bring some classic glam to your swimsuit, try on a retro pair.

Shades protect your eyes from harmful UV rays. As a Catch-22, if you do choose to wear sunglasses, it’s important to remember that you may get burned  because your eyes actually signal your brain that you’re in shade, so keep up with your SPF coverage. No one wants sunglasses marks!

Body Jewelry

Now onto the good stuff – jewelry! Jewelry trends this summer include what’s known as the “bikini pendant”, which is a simple, elegant way to show off your bustline and bikini top. A simple drop pendant can be a great way to add some honest bling to your suit.

While we’re on the subject, let’s not forget our favorite, the body chain. The body chain is a style that shows off your frame as well as your swimwear. The hottest celebrities are bringing theirs to the beach, and a delicate chain that either encompasses the waist or even drapes over the shoulders are two ways to wear this trend.

Of course, the best summer accessory yet is an oil-free SPF lotion. Remember to reapply to keep up with sun protection and lifelong sexy skin!

Have your sexiest summer yet with hot accessories. Amp up the fun for whatever you’re doing with style.
