Tips on Trendtation by B* a La Moda.
Today I'm going to do some looks for the beach. I am very lucky to spend my holidays in a not very glamourous beach where I can dress very relaxed and no one will stare at me. First I'll start with this classic baby doll style beach dress that I would wear. It's really useful as it has these pockets to keep things in. Also these comfortable flip flops. And I will ad this plastic coated bag with my new towel I got for my birthday. It has my name on it so I don't lose it. This is another simple beach dress you can wear on top of your swimsuit. And another one, again with useful pockets.
The beach where I go is not glamourous at all so for those of you that go to fancy destinations and want to show off, here are some glam looks for the beach.
First this eye catching leopard print maxi dress. Flat sandals and flip flops go well with long dresses but you could also try some heels. Sometimes it's good to tie your hair back to stop it getting blown around in the wind and getting covered in sand. It's always good to have a ribbon in your closet. In this case we will use it as a headband. Look for a color that goes well with the dress. You could also leave you hair down like this. Long necklaces are good with long dresses as they contribute to lengthening the look. These necklaces load up the look at make it a bit more sophisticated.
For this look I am wearing some white shorts which are a classic in the summer. You can also try shorts or wide linen pants. This tank top is another classic. This is a more relaxed look, cute but not over-the-top. Here are some vintage sandals I bought in Melbourne, Australia. I love them but they are always breaking and I have to fix them with Super Glue. Super Glue is great for fixing sandals. Look for scarves that are light and in summery colors. There's a really cute way of wearing them, which is round the waist like this. Another advantage is this if you need to sit down in the street you can use it to sit on and keep your trousers clean. I added this plastic bag I got in Primark for 4 euros.
This look is inspired by the beaches of California. I'm wearing this shirt dress which is see-through, with my swimsuit underneath. I will wear these orange shorts. Now you can't really see the shorts so I'll tuck the shirt in like this. Now it's the time for wearing flip flops. This is an homage to all the Californian girls. These are Hawianas and are really good quality. Necklaces like this, in bright colors, help to bring out your face and skin tone. A plastic coated bag that resists the sand and water. Finally, my sexy Versace sunglasses.
Happy summer and enjoy the beach!
