Ok, ok, we are the first to admit that the thought of swimsuit shopping for the summer brings a knot to our stomachs. A knot that leads to running a couple miles, drinking several glasses of water and looking into the hottest new self-tanning product on the market. We’ve even considered taking our own mood lighting into those harshly-lit fitting rooms.
However, this summer is going to be different. This summer, instead of stressing, may we suggest successorizing? You might be familiar with accessorizing, but we’ve got a few suggestions that will bring instant success to your summer ensembles. And let’s face it, when we feel good, we look good. So, take your pick from the list below and sport that swimsuit with your shoulders back, head held high and a bit of swagger in your step.
1. Wear the biggest sunnies you can find. Go ahead – be inspired by the 70s. Find the biggest sunglasses you can, then add a lounge chair or bright towel, a fancy drink and imagine yourself on an exotic coast. Instant summer successorizing at play here.
2. Top off your look with a straw hat. Again, the bigger the brim, the better. As an added bonus, your gorgeous face will be protected from the sun. Not only will you look fabulous, but you will be a savvy sun worshiper as well.
3. Swaddle yourself in a large cotton scarf that doubles as a sarong. When you are ready to rise from your lounge chair, wrap your glamorous self in a large cotton or linen scarf. Tie it at your waist, drape it around your shoulders or even give yourself a statement head wrap. Tying opposite corners around your chest gives a strapless dress illusion that is sure to stun other pool/beach goers.
Sunnies + straw hat + sarong = summer successorizing at its best. This summer, shop for that swimsuit, but dedicate your time to finding those pieces that are going to make you feel fantastic. You might be surprised to find that you will end up incorporating your successories into your entire summer wardrobe.
