Finish The Look

After you have found the perfect swimwear for your body type, take it to the next level by adding some unique accessories to make a personal style statement and stand out from the crowd. Here are the best ways to add some extra pizazz to your designer swimwear:

1. Body Chains

This delicate jewelry item has become all the rage after Vanessa Hudgens, Rihanna and Miley Cyrus were seen sporting it with their designer bikinis on more than one occasion. Body chains add the perfect amount of feminism and sexiness without taking away from your swimwear. Whilst cross-body chains are undoubtedly the most popular, minimalist belly chains look fabulous as well. The best part is that metal hues like gold and silver are extremely flattering on every shade of skin. Invest in one of these for your next trip to the beach and we guarantee that you will feel like a goddess.

2. Waistcoats

Traditionally, beach cover ups have been restricted to kaftans and sarongs. Break the norm by throwing on a waistcoat over your swimsuit. Light cotton ones look great over both bikinis and one pieces, whilst denim waistcoats add some edge to an otherwise girly look. If you feel like stepping up the glam factor, pick up a cute beaded waist coat or a bohemian fringed one to add some personality to your look.

3. Boy Shorts

Whether you are conscious about your bottom half, feeling a little chilly or simply want to add a new element, a cute pair of boy shorts is always a good investment. They suit all body shapes and work well with every style of swimwear. If you۪re rocking a solid colour swimsuit, printed or lace shorts can add some extra oomph to your look. If your swimwear is already detailed and busy, pair it monotone shorts in black or denim to add some style without taking the attention away from your swimwear.


Baubles are every girl۪s go to accessory, yet few of us think about them when we are headed to the beach. You can pretty much push the boundaries when accessorizing your sexy swimwear with jewelry, but remember that less is more. Opting for one statement piece which complements your swimsuit is the way to go. This also saves you the hassle of painstakingly removing everything when you want to take a dip.

If you are sporting a bandeau or triangle tops, try adding a bold necklace for some sparkle. This is a good idea for those with small busts as it creates an illusion of volume. If necklaces aren۪t down your alley, try a stack of chunky wooden bangles on your wrist or some delicate anklets for your feet.

5. Put A Hat On It

If you۪re spending a few hours under the sun, chances are that you are going to want to cover up, so why not opt for some cute headgear which complements your swimsuit? There are so many cute styles available this season that it is near impossible to turn away! If you۪re going for a feminine look, throw on a floppy straw hat, which looks great with light shades and printed pieces. If you want something a little more bad ass, look for something with more structure like a fedora or a boater hat.

However you choose to accessorize, make sure that the add-ons are fuss free and practical, so that you can focus on having a blast rather than worrying about your beach look!
