Holiday Swimwear

Yes you read that title right. For people traveling to the tropics this winter (such as myself), here are your must have swim suits for all of your tropical fun in the sun.

For some of us, putting on swimwear in the middle of the winter can be a little tough. Buying a new suit and cover up can help the transition from post holiday blues to a vacation mindset!

What to Wear if You're Poolside Sunbathing

You're looking for a suit that will leave minimal tan lines and since there aren't any waves to worry about, you can go strapless! Glam up your accessories with some metallic shoes and cool headphones. Don't forget a tote for magazines, sunscreen, and money for poolside margaritas.

What to Wear if You're Surfing

For surfing, you'll need a rash guard that's cute and functional. Carrying a surfboard means you need a bag big enough to carry all of your beach essentials without getting in the way. Most importantly, don't forget an insulated water bottle! Dehydration is harder to detect in water sports.

What to Wear if You're Hanging out on the Beach

Beach activities requires no-hassle swimwear. Sand volleyball, frisbee, and swimming in the ocean are all bad for strapless tops. Bring an insulated tote for lunch and some cute hair ties!

What to Wear if You're Covering Up

Whether you're going to a casual beach bar or you're just getting too much sun, there's a cover up for you. Camouflage your beach hair with pretty headbands and hats and don't forget shoes that are easy to transition from beach to street.
