Beach Wear

Luxe Models loves nothing more than to accessorise on the beach. Just because you don’t wear much on the beach, doesn’t mean you don’t have to wear much. This is an excuse, actually (ahem), to accessorise more than ever before in the world of accessorising. “Why?” you ask. Luxe Models will tell you (because we are wise beyond words)... On the beach one doesn’t wear much in terms of clothing, yes, we are aware of this, BUT: the lack of clothing actually acts as a reason to drape one’s semi-naked body in tassels, in jewellery, in sexy sunglasses and unconventional footwear. Bangles, hair accessories, sarongs: think of it this way, the less clothes you wear, the more accessories you can get away with. Hurrah beach! Hurrah sun! We worship the warm rays of heat you provide, which allow us to glam up our lives without looking like a weird old bag lady. Ah, the simple pleasures in life.

Luxe Models loves that clinky, clanky sound you get from strolling along the beach dowsed in chunky metal goodness. Wrists swathed in big round variations of bangle joy; we love it! Check out Topshop for some awesome wrist action. H&M is good if your budget is a little lower, and AlexanderMcQueen is good for those whose budget is more open ended than the sweet blue skies that encompass our favourite beach locations.

When on the beach abroad (and not mooching around Britain’s dreary high streets), one realises that sunglasses have a practical purpose. A purpose that is not merely to conceal baggy old hungover eyes, either! When on the beach, a Luxe Model needs eye-shields because of actual sunshine! Here at Luxe Models, at this moment in time, we’re loving round little numbers. They’re cool in a kind of hippy/Beatles way (as if there are any uncool hippy/Beatles ways).

There is literally nothing better than a big pair of chavvy gold hoops. Luxe Models is not joking in relaying this solid fact. Bikinis and hoops look hot; there are no two ways about it. Other oversized earrings are also a hit. Or what about those earrings that are kind of like an ear cuff, yes, an EAR CUFF! It’s the future. One end clips on to the top of the ear whilst the other goes through the lobe piercing. Genius.

So, there you have it. A little beach accessory guide that should get your fashion juices flowing in time for this summer’s escapade abroad. Happy Holidays!
