How To Look Good In A Swimsuit In Under 5 Mins
So, just to be clear, before you all get your knickers in a twist this blog post is NOT about looking thinner or skinnier in a swimsuit. You can find enough of that crap over at the supermarket trash mags. There are no crash diets, fads or drawing on of ab’s. This is styling 101 and we are lucky that our Creative Director, Emily has spent a few hundred hours styling swimwear so she can pass on the tips and tricks to you.
Confession- I only started wearing a sun hat just recently. Terrible, I know. Aside from protecting you from the sun, a hat can be the ultimate fashion accessory. Panama’s, Boaters and Floppy Hats all work when it comes to swimwear. Hell, I’d even wear a Sombrero if it meant i got to drink Margaritas under a palm tree. The point is, a hat can elevate your look, draw attention up and the perfect place to hide when eavesdropping on poolside gossip.
If you have a smaller bust or if you just need to add more shape to a bikini top padding will give you instant lift and shape. Some swimsuits have those padded implants in them (which are actually great for hiding nipples) however don’t be afraid to invest in some swimwear padding (silicone is best) Not sure about butt padding although I suppose it’s probably the next big thing with all of those K gurls flaunting what their mamma gave them.
Spray tans have come a LONG way. Find a local spray tan person you can trust (extra points if they come to you) and make sure you have a golden glow before hitting the pool/beach before your next vaycay. A fake tan is a safe tan and there are some awesome DIY jobs out there if you can’t get a professional job.
OK, so we covered hats already but there are so many other accessories that can lift your swimsuit game. Think sunglasses, big bold bright earrings and stacked bracelets, rings and chains. Invest in a beach bag that can fit everything you need and either match or contrast it with your towel/ beach chair.
