We’re committed to looking great while achieving appropriate sun protection. After all, we don’t want to look like a distressed leather Chloé handbag in ten years!

Fight melanoma and leave a little to the imagination with the acquisition of two simple duds – a sarong and a floppy hat.

A floppy straw hat is eternally stylish. It’s a flirty Gatsbian approach to frame your face, eclipse a bad hair day and keep facial sun damage at bay.

A sturdy straw hat, like the Columbia Sun Ridge, comes in a variety of colors and is virtually indestructible. Perfect feminine flare for your Malibu beach party, and equally appropriate for pulling weeds in the back yard.

Wear with wedges for polished glamour or with flip-flops to complete a laid-back, boho vibe.

Sport with your barely there bikini to accentuate all your curves, or rock it with your boyfriend’s old tee and cutoffs for the “I don’t care and I’m still rockin’ it” look.

We all think it, but no one says it out loud—we hate going to the beach because we have cellulite. If you’re packing a little extra heat in your posterior, the only viable solution is to buy yourself a sarong.

Following the Spanx principal, the objective is not to change our size, rather, the goal is to gain a smooth appearance in your waist, hips and thighs.

A jewel toned wrap or sorbet colored sarong will hug your curves and smooth out the booty. A sheer fabric leaves enough visible to cause intrigue.

You can even use a light summer scarf, like the Lemlem Hilansha Gauze Scarf available at J.Crew, rather than oversized sarong fabric.

Beach attire doesn’t have to be workout rags. Thank French and add style with an elegant hat and sexy sarong!
