The beach is always the number one pick for any holiday, this is especially true for the New Year holidays. Everybody seems to be heading to Goa, Mauritius or some exotic beach location to catch some R&R. With all that sun out, just what does one pack for a beach vacation? Here are the beach trends that Sue Castellino found popping up everywhere. Remember the beach is all about having fun, so pack a little excitement with these essentials :)
The Cover Up
Kurtas and Kaftans in bright neon or pop colours are a must have this season. Wear them long or short, in soft chiffon or georgette. Use them to cover up your bikinis or teams them up with accessories to take them from day to night.
Bandeau and strapless styles are the in thing for swimwear, they look super cute and chic at the same time. If you want to show skin but still be covered, opt for a monokini in vibrant prints, stay away from metallic colours it could come off looking tacky. Mix and match your bikini tops and bottoms for an edgy look.
Be daring when it come to accessories. Throw on those bangles and bracelets, the more the better. Don’t be boring with your sunglasses, bring out the big, bright colourful ones and make a statement with them!
Don’t even think about stepping out, without your big beach bag and sunscreen. A big bag is perfect to dump your flip flop or that romance novel you might be hiding! Sunscreen is a must have, protect your skin now, to keep those wrinkles away later.
