Top 3 Beachwear Tips For the Fashion Savvy Traveller

I know that right now many of you will be busy shopping for beachwear in preparation for your holidays. The good news is that every size, shape, and age group is well catered for. So, it should be relatively easy to find the perfect swimwear for your holiday. To help you to do that, here are a few fashion and buying tips.

Trying Your Swimwear On

Before you go on holiday, try your swimwear on. You do not want to find out it does not fit properly once you have arrived at your destination. Potentially, you can buy a replacement, but doing so can work out expensive. Often, the price you will pay for swimwear in popular holiday destinations is quite high.

While wearing your swimwear, look at yourself in the mirror. Do so from as many angles as you can. Sit, lay and bend down to make sure that your swimming costume stays in place. This is the best way to avoid any embarrassment. If you plan to water-ski, surf or play volleyball checking your swimwear preserves your modesty regardless of how you move is especially important.

The Ideal Beach Footwear

Even on the cleanest beaches, there is always a risk that something could be buried just below the surface. As a result, you should always pack footwear for the beach.

Flip-flops are ideal, but they are not particularly stylish. Fortunately, this year, there are plenty of nice sandals available. For a holiday, slides are a good option. These are flat, so are super comfortable to walk in and do not take up a lot of space. Plus, they are ideal for wearing on the beach. Although, this year´s slides are mostly made from leather, so you may want to pack a pair of water shoes as well. That way you can change into these before going in the sea.

A Stylish Beach Bag

For the beach, a bag is essential. Keeping everything in one place is the ideal way to make sure that you do not forget anything. Having to go back to your accommodation to pick up your suntan lotion is not ideal.

If you do not have a lot of space available, pack items into your beach bag. Once it is full you can then lay it in your case and pack softer items around it.

There are some great looking canvas totes available in the shops his year. These are ideal for the beach and can potentially double as a travel handbag. If you do want to use them in this way make sure you choose one that has a good zip and an internal security pocket. Also, make sure that it is small enough for you not to have to pay extra luggage fees to be able to take it on the plane with you.

Wraps and Sarongs

For the beach, a sarong or something similar is a great accessory. You can use it to keep the sun off when you need to and to stay warm enough to be able to stay on the beach and see the sun go down. Look for something that is lightweight, fashionable and versatile. This buying guide explains the merits of the various types of sarong.
