How to Dress for the Beach

With summer in full swing, people everywhere are hitting the beach for some fun in the sun. If you are one of them, you probably know that dressing for the beach is not always a simple task. You want to look your best, but at the same time you want to be comfortable. Sun protection is also something to consider. Luckily there are some helpful tips that will make dressing for the beach a little less of a chore.

Bathing Suit

When it comes to dressing for the beach, a bathing suit is obviously the most important piece of clothing you will need. This is why you should try to choose a suit that fits you properly and flatters your figure. To ensure you pick a suit that meets your needs, make sure you try on a multitude of styles and colors. Always buy the size you need, as a too-tight suit can turn a day at the beach into a painful experience. A suit that is too large can also be annoying, as it will probably droop and sag in all the wrong places. If there are certain parts of your body that you would rather not show, consider some of the newer, retro-inspired one piece styles. Since they provide more coverage than a two-piece suit and still look cool, you will feel much more comfortable and relaxed. After all, isn’t that what a day at the beach is all about?


Another piece of clothing you should consider when dressing for the beach is a cover-up. Whether it is an actual bathing suit cover-up or just a large tee shirt, it will help protect you from the sun and wind when you are not in the water. When choosing a cover-up, keep in mind that light colors are best for the beach. Darker colors like black will attract sunlight and absorb heat, which can cause you to become hot and sticky in quite a hurry. You can also choose to wear a sarong over your bathing suit bottoms to add a little extra coverage.


Being at the beach exposes you to strong sun rays that can burn your skin easily. This is why, in addition to sunscreen, you should wear a beach hat with a large brim. It will help to keep the sun out of your face and eyes, which in turn will make you much more comfortable.


Sunglasses are essential for blocking the harsh UV rays from the sun, which can be very bright and rough on the eyes. First of all, you will want to choose a pair that flatters your face. Also, make sure the pair you wear to the beach are capable of blocking the harshest of sun rays. You may also want to attach your sunglasses to a cord around your neck if you plan on wearing them in the water. This will prevent you from losing them to a wave.


You should always wear a pair of flip flops or sandals to the beach, as the sand and concrete parking lots can get extremely hot underneath the summer sun. Flip flops or sandals will also protect your feet from sharp objects that may be lurking in the sand, such as broken glass, sea shells, and rocks. Water shoes are also recommended if the beach you are visiting is very rocky. You do not want your beach experience to be ruined simply because you forgot the proper foot protection.

Change of Clothes

After a long day of swimming and sunbathing, you will probably want to change out of your wet bathing suit. This is why it is a very good idea to bring a change of clothes with you when you go to the beach. Also, make sure to rinse or wash your bathing suit when you get home so the fabric stays in good shape.

Now that you know how to dress for the beach, you should have no trouble looking your best and staying comfortable on beach days. Just remember to always wear sunscreen so you do not get a bad sunburn.

The Trifecta Of Terrible: 3 Fashion Pitfalls of the Modern Man

The Trifecta Of Terrible: 3 Fashion Pitfalls of the Modern Man

Life is tough. Between work, friends and family, it’s no wonder that such nebulous concepts like ‘fashion’ are often left on the back burner. While we may not be able to turn you into James Franco, here are three common mistakes in grooming, style and fashion to avoid at all costs.

1) You are not a Movie Star.
Unless you ARE a movie star, and statistically your probably not, don’t try to look like one. Especially, don’t try to dress or style yourself like a character you saw in a movie. A Leather jacket and wraparound shades does not a Terminator make, and unless you work as hired muscle for a bond villain, this is something to be avoided. Similarly, adding a hat from the 1930s to your daily outfit does not make you look debonair, drop it for a short haircut and save the classic cover for Halloween. Think simplicity, and perhaps trendiness, never fabulous. You can definitely look fabulous, but don’t try to.

2) Long Live The 80s, But Not In Your Hair
The 80s were a great time, but that time is past. Mullets and ‘big hair’ in general is gone, and the slicked back oiled look is out on everyone but used car salesmen. As far as accessories, Aviators are out unless you are actually an aviator, anything that looks like it came directly off the hide of a jungle animal is a no go. People can and have wrote books on the styles of today, but a good rule of thumb is that if you saw it on Magnum, PI, let it stay there.

3) You Are Not A Billboard
This is a major mistake, especially for younger men. The so-called ‘Graphic’ clothes market has been slowly expanding like a multicolored tumor across the backs of the uninformed. The jackets that look like Picasso drew on your back with glitter are completely out. Burn them, give them to someone you don’t like, whatever. Unless you are going to a very specific event, like wearing a car shit to a car club meeting, shirts with words, quotes, full front or back pictures can go the same way. Double goes for clothes with giant branding. Nike is great, but don’t leave your house with a four foot tall swoosh on your back. Some shirts have a tiny little brand on a shoulder or breast pocket and that is OK, but avoid even that in anything resembling a professional setting.

A Bonus Tip: Here is something that a lot of people tend to leave out, but can actually make a huge difference, especially in a professional setting. Befriend a tailor. Custom fitting is not the exclusive purview of thousand dollar outfits and CEOs, and the world’s best outfit can still look less than perfect if it doesn’t fit right (and it probably doesn’t unless your body type is exactly that of a store mannequin). That said, custom tailoring does add a bit to the price of an outfit, but its far more reasonable than most people think. At the very least, hit up your favorite search engine or phone book and see what comes up.

And that is as they say, that. This is by no means a definitive guide to modern fashion, but if you keep these three tips in mind, you will avoid the worst of the worst.
