Sexy Beach-Worthy Essentials
Resort collections are in stores and as we stroll through the aisles, we’re dreaming of somewhere warm and sunny with tropical breezes and island music playing…. ahhhh. If you are lucky enough to be headed off on a beach vacation in the next few months or you just like to be prepared if your significant other or girlfriends decide to whisk you off for a whirlwind weekend, MSL has your essential beach vacation-wear all picked out.
A one-shouldered swimsuit that does double-duty as a top when you add a skirt or sarong makes going from the beach to drinks that much easier. Moms also need suits that allow us to play in the sand with our kids, unless of course we’ve left them behind for a romantic getaway, then our favorite swimsuit needs to be as sexy as is it practical.
Flip-flops? Not glamorous enough. These amazing jewel-encrusted gladiator sandals glide from day to night with missing a beat. Okay, maybe you’ll want to slip into your Havianas for the sand and surf… but these are perfect for the haute evenings out on your vacay.
A must-have piece in your suitcase, a summery dress that works for day with a pair of flats and is easily dressed up for a night out with dangly earrings, a loose up-do and strappy heels.
The ideal tote bag for the beach is durable, roomy and holds up to the sand and surf (what’s better than neoprene?!) while still looking fashionable. Versatility doesn’t hurt either, so you get more bang for your buck.
Are you sensing the Grecian-goddess-on-the-beach theme we have going here? A sexy cover-up gilded in gold is perfect for the resort pool or the beach. It also pairs with shorts or a mini-skirt for shopping in town.
Every girl needs a pair of designer sunglasses that frame her face and add glamour to her look, not only on vacation, but on a daily basis. Embrace your inner-celebrity.
An easy way to complete your look and protect your skin, there are great-looking sun hats available at all price points. Helpful tip: Look for a hat that crushes to pack easily or stuff a tee in the main part of the hat so it emerges from your suitcase unscathed.
Send MSL a picture of your glam self on vacation! We love to see what our readers are wearing and doing.
