Fitting Swimwear Accessories at Molly Brown’s

 

For all you beach enthusiasts, choosing the perfect swimsuit should be as important as to how to accessorise it. Molly Brown’s has an array of swimwear accessories to make you look all the more glamorous head to toe without much effort!

 

Let’s take a look at all that is in store for you!

 

Bags – To most women, a bag means much more than an accessory wherein they can carry all the essentials. Starting with an SPF lip balm, sunscreen, moisturiser and all other quintessential beauty products. Pair your one piece or two piece bikini with a stylish bag to add some zing to your beach outfit.

Belts – Be it a leather, embellished or a suede belt, the list is unending and it is the quickest and the safest way to up the glam quotient of your swimwear. Pairing a belt with your beach outfit is quite an unusual way of looking chic. Wear it confidently and look your beach best!

Footwear – Whether on a beach or elsewhere, it’s important to wear comfortable footwear unless you like walking barefoot, experiencing the ticklish touch of the sandy shores! Choose from colorful flip-flops from Havaianas and make your exclusive fashion statement.

Hats – If you are not really looking to get sunbathed for a tan, begin by choosing a wide-brimmed trendy hat to protect the sensitive skin of your face and look sun-kissed in a subtle way. Pick an Odabash cowboy hat to carry a voguish look on your vacation or a cool pool party.

Jewelry – Accentuate your beach look by pairing your ultra sexy swimsuit with a glitzy neckpiece or fine feather earrings. Jewelry not only helps in sprucing up your look and leaving you looking drop-dead gorgeous, but also adds an element of elegance and appeal to your outfit be it beach wear or anything else.

Molly Brown’s Fashion Fridays – Beach Couture for Him & Her

Hello my lovelies!

 

It’s Friday Friday Friday and that means Partaayyyy!

 

We haven’t been this excited since forever! Last week, Amahlia Stevens came by to our store and it was awesome!
Inspired by her gorgeous style and fashion sense, we decided to do a Fashion Friday with a twist.
So instead of one pick of the week, this time we have two. There is also a special theme: Beach Couture!

 

This Fashion Friday, we bring to you ideal beach date outfits for him and her, our favorite pick out of them all!
Next time you are going to the beach for a date or to spend time with your significant other, keep these outfits in mind 😉

 

First off, the outfit for the lady!

 

Since it is the beach, what better than swimwear and nothing goes with the beach more than a gorgeous cover-up dress or swim dress. We have picked out 3 different type of dresses, and you can decide which one to wear for your date in the sun and the sand :)

 

Show off those sexy and toned legs in these hot pink Ruffle Shift Dress by Indah. Add some glitter and you are ready to rock and roll! We suggest pairing this dress with simple sparklers and style your hair in curls or in a high ponytail.

 

3_pink-coverup

For a more laidback vibe and nailing the beach look completely, we suggest the Desert Rose Maxi Dress by Lady Lux. A halter, snake print dress with a slit for a little sneak peek game, this maxi dress will make you look like the goddess that you are. Pair this dress with simple beach waves for the perfect relaxed look.

 

2-desert-rose-dress-copy

 

Our last piece is one of our favorite looks for a casual beach date. It is the Jumpsuit! The Ruda jumpsuit by Vix is a perfect way to leave your date stunned! Paired with strappy sandals and sun-kissed hair, this casually elegant jumpsuit on you will definitely make heads turn at the beach!

Accessories are a must, and the lesser the better. Pick one statement piece, a necklace or earrings and some bangles and you are good to go! Since it is a beach date, we suggest you keep the footwear simple, like these flip-flops. If you want something fancier, then you can go with a pair of dressy flat sandals.

 

Now, for the men!

 

Men are definitely much easier to dress than girls!

 

Boys, since it is a beach date, we suggest that you keep it cool and casual. A t-shirt with board shorts and flip flops and a hat is the perfect beach date look for you!
Don’t worry, we have some options for you too.

 

For the t-shirt, we suggest wearing lighter shades such as whites and pastels that give off a very surfer dude like vibe! Some of our favorite shirts from our men’s swimwear collection are the following.

 

                                    

As your t-shirt will be of a lighter color, opt for darker colors in your board shorts. Stick to standard colors such as blue or black or something of a similar tone. If you want to funk it up a bit, you can even wear camo shorts!
Here are our options for you!

 

                                        

A hat will complete the laid-back surfer look we have going on here and we have some great choices for you here and here!

 

If you want to style your hair, then you can drop the hat. :)

 

We hope your dates go amazingly and you have a total blast!

 

Happy Weekend Y’all! :)

Hair Care Remedies for Sand Dried Hair After Every Beach Sunday

Who likes sand dried hair after an amazing day at the beach?

Nobody does and it’s annoying to even harbour such thoughts during bright sunny days of summer. But the truth remains, how so ever much you love the sun, its ultraviolet rays in addition to the salty beach water will damage your hair a lot. Beach dried hair becomes frizzy, dry, tangled, unmanageable and absolutely a pain at the end of the day.

So what to do to protect your hair from the summer sun? A scarf? Not a pretty fashionable idea. Maybe a braid? Hmmmm, not sexy enough. What then? Maybe some hair care at home.

You can replenish and rejuvenate your hair with some easy hair care remedies post your beachy day and not worry about sand dried hair at all.

  • After a dip in the salty beach water, reach home and prepare some mango mush and apply it like a hair pack on your hair. If mangoes aren’t available, try milk and honey. You’ll get your smooth hair back in the first application.
  • Try olive oil at the ends of your hair strands and leave it for an hour or two. Wash and deep condition your hair after that for smooth hair.
  • Another hair replenishing fruit is avocado. Slice and mash an avocado and apply it as a hair pack to soften your dry hair.
  • Hot carrot oil smoothens dry hair and has lasting effect on them. Wash and dry your hair after beach and apply hot carrot oil overnight for best results.
  • Hair masks (Of a brand you like) twice a week is the mantra for beautiful hair throughout summers. Will save hair from beach dryness as well.
  • For a hair pack after a beach Sunday, try bananas and olive oil massaged well into your hair strands. The massage is relaxing and hair becomes really soft.
  • For super lazy lads, just deep condition your hair for 15-20 minutes after every beach day. Let conditioner be in your hair strands for as long you can let it stay.

Some hair care tips to protect hair from the summer sun and the beach surroundings:

  • Try spraying diluted sun tan lotion in your hair before you get into water. It creates a shield on your hair strands and protects your hair from a lot of damage.
  • You can also comb a deep conditioner throughout your hair strands before you jump into the beautiful beach. Acts as a protective layer and doesn’t let your scalp dry.
  • Try a smoothing serum when at beach. You can apply it more than a couple of times to keep your scalp hydrated.
  • Apply a body butter at the ends of hair strands, tie a bun or a pony tail and splash into the beach without any hitches. Your hair will get wet and salty but the damage will be lesser.

These remedies will moisturize your dry hair to look and feel better. Until then, you can also try stylish hats at the beach. Designer hats by Caffe, Fox, Lost, Odabash, Vitamin A, TLC at Molly Brown’s swimwear are great to protect hair and skin from ultraviolet rays of the scorching summer sun.

Designer Hats for Beach

We suggest, don’t wait for a salon appointment to get your dry frizzy hair fixed. Try some hair remedies at home to rejuvenate your hair and allow them to breathe.

Sundays at the Beach Couldn’t Get Anymore Fashionable – Beach Accessories & Lots More

Fashion is an integral part of a girl’s life, especially when it’s summers and the beaches are playing the temptress. Beach fashion is beyond bathing suits and cover ups these days. There is so much more you can add to your look, to have a perfect 10/10 score when you step on the sand. Getting into a sexy bikini is one thing, but adorning a beach diva look is what we are talking about.

Compiled below is a checklist of all the must-have beach accessories to go with your swimwear.
And we can start with hats!

Hats on beach are hot.

Designer Hats

They save you from the sun and raise the glamor quotient to the next level. You don’t really need to go for bigger hats on the beach, unless you want to partake in a fashion fad, just appropriate size hats are amazing to go. Designer hats by Odabash and TLC and You are a perfect choice. They have some exquisite pieces that definitely add oodles of sexiness to your beach look.

And a girl’s look is so incomplete without bags.

Designer Tote Bags

A tote on beach is a good idea. Tote bags are spacious and carry all your essentials like a dress change, sun tan, something to munch, phone accessories and lots more in there. Designer tote bags from Caffe and OndadeMar are a superb pick this season. Colorful and plaid designer tote bags a highly recommended to complete your Sunday beach look this season.

Going further, we can stumble upon belts.

Designer Belts

Belts are a fashion accessory that never go wrong, but on a swimwear, it’s a little experimental. Belts on bikini is a big no but on a full cover bathing suit or a sultry cover up, they might just be a fashion statement. You can team up a stylish designer belt with a cover up or a beach dress for most impact. Belts from TLC are very fashion forward and would be amazing on a beach dress/cover up.

And a pair of footwear to complete the look.

Beach Footwear

A pair of comfortable and good looking Havaianas is the first things coming to mind when you have to hit the beach. Though it’s mostly barefoot, running around the beach in flip flops is a good idea to save your feet from bruises and unwanted slimy creatures. Designer footwear by Havaianas and Melissa is good looking and comfortable to match your Sunday beach look. You can even wear them to a beach after party or a coffee date right after your beach spree.

This is how a Sunday at the beach can be so fashionable and stylish for you. Just a little thought into it and you could well have a lot of turning heads the next Sunday you hit the beach.

Is Neon ‘the’ style of this season?

Bikinis, bikinis everywhere but are you still stuck on what to wear? Well, open your eyes and look around – what do you see? Neons! Yes, the flashy, fancy and luminous tones are back and with a bang!

2014 is witnessing the rise of many unique trends and neon swimwear is one of them. Although traces of it have been seen before, never has it been so popular than it is now. Many designer swimwear brands are taking the plunge into neon and coming up with swimwear pieces that not only catch the eye but also your heart!

Neon Bikini and Cover Up

 Neons are quite in demand. And why wouldn’t they be, when they make the wearer stand out from the crowd and flaunt their bods in the best way possible. Neon bikinis will keep you in the spotlight from dawn till dusk! What’s more, this retro-trend is not just about colors but also about designing and style, because the latest 2014 neon bikinis are not just bright pinks, reds or greens, they are stylish triangle tops, fringes, bandeaus and everything that makes them ever more coveted among beach goddesses.

Neon Bikinis

Why Neons?

If your plan for the season is to make the sun shine brightest on you, then go for neon without a second thought. Or if you want something new  to work with as a contrast to your prints, flat pastels and naturals with something zesty this season – go for neon!

The good thing about neon is that there’s never a dull fashion ensemble in your wardrobe! Plus when you don’t want to be all-too-colorful then you can throw a macramé or mesh-woven cover up or a dress of a nude/ neutral tone over it and create a great look for the season.

The question of whether neon is the style this season, still remains though. Our answer, not quite. It’s certainly one of the more popular trends but to call it the top trending style statement of 2014 is definitely over stretching it a bit. It will be some time before the neon bikini replaces the little black dress.

Our verdict on Neons: A most definitely yes! Not just for the sake of trying a new or the latest trend but for wearing a bold and beautiful style statement. Forget about your beach-gal-type for a moment and be unabashed in embracing new looks for this season. Even if the little neon bikini is a bit out of your comfort zone, why not try it out and maybe the glammed-up look becomes your style eventually! :)

How to ace the perfect beach look and what do you need for it.

 

Corsica Top Tortola Bottom
Corsica Top Tortola Bottom

The beach season is just around the corner and swimwear stores are abuzz with activity, bringing out the latest collections of major swimwear brands to display. But before you dive right into shopping to upgrade your beach wardrobe, you might want to make a list of what all you need to set the temperatures soaring at the beach. Lucky for you, we have done the homework. Without further ado, here goes:

A stunning bikini: This, of course, is the most important item of them all. With scores of designs and options available, from monokinis to bikinis to mix and match bikinis, pick one that describes your personality best. Check out the latest collections available at Molly Brown’s and pick the perfect bikini for you.

A stunning coverup: Gone are the days when a cover up used to be simple and just something you throw over a bikini. Cover ups have evolved into ultra sexy ensemble of fabric and are a fashion statement themselves. From dress cover ups to kaftans, cover ups are definitely something you need to shift your focus on. Experiment with long or short cover ups and watch how men and boys drool.

Beach hats: Not only do beach hats look uber cool, but also save your pretty face from the sun. Get a wide-brimmed hat for the perfect beach look.

Beach Bags: A good bag can make quite an impression. The 2014 collections have beach bags of all kinds, from printed totes to embellished ones to the unique jelly totes. Pick a beach bag that is large enough to hold all your supplies.

Accessories: No look, beach or otherwise, is complete without the right accessories. On the beach, you need to match your accessories with your bikini and coverup. If you are a fan of plunging necklines, get a statement neckpiece and simple stud earrings. Bracelets, rings and earrings are all accessories you need to be careful while using. Pick one unique accessory and let it do all the talking.

The Right Kind of Makeup: On the beach, natural looking makeup works best. Overdoing it will only make one look caked. Keep it simple. Have a light shade of lipgloss on your lips, ideally one that is a lip balm as well. On the eyes, stick to eyeliner and mascara only and do not go over the top. Stick to the style that suits you best. Add a slight blush to the cheeks and voila! You’re ready for the beach! Also, do not forget sunscreen. You do not want crazy tan lines!

The Right Kind of Hair: Loose waves, slick straight, top knot or a messy bun. On the beach, you can experiment with your hair, as you feel comfortable. Let them loose, mess them up occasionally or tie them up in a cute braid/ bun and pair some hair accessories with them. This one, do what your heart desires.

And, The Right Footwear: Beach footwear must be functional and stylish, so that you can frolic around in the sands and the sea without having to worry about spoiling your footwear. For this, we suggest getting flip flops, as they serve as the best beach footwear of all times. Browse through our footwear selection to pick one for this beach season!

There! This is pretty much what you will need to perfect the sexy, sultry, sun kissed look. Did we miss anything? What are your essentials to get ready for the beach? Share them in the comments below! :)
