Why Did You Wear That: Body Party
Written by: WhyDid | Why Did You Wear That?

celebrity body jewelryWe’ve covered the bikini, the coverup and we already know how I feel about poolside footwear. Another not so obvious sunbathing accessory… that could potentially lead to some awkward tan lines, but you’re wearing enough SPF as to avoid that… is body jewelry. Specifically body chains. I have a couple of necklaces I next to never take off, but catapulting bling to the next level is the body chain worn with your bikini bod. It’s not as if you’re going to be doing laps like an Olympic swimmer and I’m willing to bet that if you’re anything like me, the only time you’ll subject your skin to a chlorinated public pool is when your dermis has actually reached the temperature right before incineration. Should you not be bold enough to bare your belly, another iteration is the hand chain which is another celebrity favorite at this very moment… and don’t you wanna be just like Beyonce?

Friday Frocks: Cover. Up.

gucci

All seasoned spring break babes know that the only part of your poolside wardrobe almost as important as the bikini is the coverup.  And maybe your shades, but let’s stick with the former.  The coverup must be more than your shredded denim shorts and American Apparel tank top.  To be truly beach chic and to separate the amateurs from the pros, a bathing beauty should have a coverup (or four, depending on vacation duration) that is both casual and elegant, a look that says, “Oh this old thing?” while embodying a Gucci ad.  Besides, they won’t let you in the restaurant without a shirt.

Why Did You Wear That: Dive In
Written by: WhyDid | Why Did You Wear That?

kirsten smithEveryone knows I love lingerie, a good cocktail, and my maltipoo, Smitty.  Something else I love more than the average juice fasting female is swimwear.  Some girls are all about bags, some about shoes and while I love both, a bikini is always certain to catch my attention as well as my paycheck.  I even consider myself a bit of a bathing suit expert.  I mean, I spent two years having the pleasure of filling Bendel’s with barely there beachwear.

I love bathing suits so much there are times when I wonder why I don’t just move to an island and live in a bikini whilst sipping on fresh coconuts, but then I get bored even imagining it and continue on in my concrete jungle.

Sure, this took me the greater portion of a day to pull together, but because I love swimwear so much, I enjoyed every moment of it.  Whether you love a one piece or the teeniest of itsy bitsy bikinis, I’ve rounded up a suit in almost all of this spring’s biggest trends that should tickle your fancy or at least your fanny.  So, here it is.  The most elaborate swimsuit guide you’ll see and ever need to get you beach bum and poolside ready.

Why Did You Wear That: One Piece of Advice
Written by: WhyDid | Why Did You Wear That?

Often times, a one piece bathing suit is something that conjures up nostalgic thoughts of Annette Funicello the Big Kahuna, and well, the Golden Girls.  But the one piece has come a long way, baby.  Once the modest uniform of the swim team, the one piece has become sometimes sexier than your skimpiest of itsy bitsy bikinis.  With plunging v-necks, racy cutouts, and all but there backs, there is a one piece to enhance and disguise just about any figure.  So, whether you are simply parading poolside before a sunset swim (because the only downside of a singular suit is the tan lines) or you happen to be hiding a trouble spot, a one piece bathing suit is a must for every beach bound babe this summer.

Styling Tip: a one piece bathing suit doubles as a super chic body suit with jeans or denim shorts and heels for post pool dinner and dancing.

Friday Frocks: The Perfect Coverup
Written by: WhyDid | Friday Frocks

beach hammock girlsAlmost as important as that bikini is how you choose to transport yourself from Point A to your final destination.  The coverup should be chicer than throwing on a pair of Soffe shorts and tank.  Put a little pride in your poolside presence by picking out a coverup that could easily be mistaken for a frock.  In my experience, poolside rose often leads to post beach cocktails and oysters and sometimes even a little bit of table dancing… but maybe that’s just me.  Anyway, just make sure your coverup continues to be sexy, not soggy after a long day of fun on in the sun.
