When searching for the ultimate beachside look, I like to try to capture the essence of glamorous locations. Be it beautifully cut white linen trowsers ideal for Capri, a nautical look perfect for stepping on and off your yacht or Riviera chic that you will find along my most favourite of coastlines, it is important to look better than good when you are away.
The big sunglasses and hats of the 50’s and 60’s worn by the likes Audrey Hepburn, are a must as they carry the same panache as they always did. A beautifully cut swimsuit can be timeless. And over the swimsuit.. How about a boyfriend style towelling shirt to evoke that “I don’t give a damn” look?
Mabes.com offers the best towelling shirts I have found. On men these stylish shirts make them look like they are starring in an Agatha Christie movie on some far flung island. On women, if left to hang open, they beautifully show off a bikini whist acting as a decent barrier to the sunshine.
Their easy to wash terry towelling nature and the fact that they are difficult to crumple make them completely practical. For yachting beaching and lazing in the sunshine.. pop one of these in your bag – they are the ultimate coverup and of course, ideal if you forget your towel!
