With south swells marching up the coast, the warm waters of summer brings endless surf days to show off your favorite new SWELL beach clothes.
Here’s 5 fail-free tips to keep in mind when hitting the hot sand this summer.
1. SUNGLASSES STYLE
The Good: Contemporary frame designs like cat-eye, and acetate wayfarers are trending from Epokhe and RAEN
The Bad: Plastic poser brands stand out like a sore on your lip
The Ugly: Resting sunnies on your neck screams “i’m a jock!” and leaves goofy redneck stripe tan
2. SURF STYLE
The Good: New-school guys like Craike and Dion add flare with a surf tee or even a hula shirt
The Bad: Keep your style simple, matching is tolerable, but easy on the accessories
The Ugly: In case of farmer tan, apply sunscreen to burn areas and leave pale spots exposed to catch up (sorry moms)
3. WETSUIT STYLE
The Good: Peddling in a wetsuit is ok, but NEVER wear with shoes, sunglasses, etc. Shop Racks
The Bad: Never jump the pier with your leash attached, especially longboarders
The Ugly: Publicly “credit-carding” aka board-to-groin, especially while wearing gloves, booties, shirt & wetty.
4. SANDAL STYLE
The Good: The Fanning Reef Sandals emergency bottle opener makes you the life of the beach party
The Bad: Give the bottle a coutesy wipe in case you stepped in some tar…or worse
The Ugly: Chicks aren’t impressed toothless beer drinkers
5. GOPRO STYLE
The Good: Taking “selfies” is not a crime while shredding with a GoPro
The Bad: Taking “selfies” anywhere else
The Ugly: Mounting GoPro’s on every possible surface, and fruit booting the boardwalk
