Summer is officially here and you know what that means—it’s time for the beach.
Going to the country’s most pristine beaches call for equally stunning swimwear and while there are many trendy swimsuit styles to choose from, there’s not one that fits all frames and body types.
We turn to travel and fashion blogger Laureen Uy at the launch of Oppo’s latest phone, the F11 Pro. Here’s what she tells us about choosing the right swimsuit.
Color coordinate ahead of time.
It’s easy to overpack for a trip when you can’t decide what to wear. Swimsuits can be especially daunting, considering that you’ll be walking around and taking lots of vacay photos wearing one. For Laureen, however, planning ahead of time is key. “Always think of your color coordination [in advance] para hindi masyadong marami ‘yung dadalhin mo,” she shares.
Choose comfortable and be confident.
“I personally think that we all need to embrace our bodies,” she says. “No one’s ever gonna love us the way we love ourselves.” Laureen suggests choosing a swimsuit that you’re comfortable with, because only then will you be confident.
Style according to your body type.
In case you’re not comfortable showing off your body though, Laureen says you can always find another style for you. “There are always great ways to cover up,” she says. She suggests wearing cover ups like shorts or flowy maxi dress.
“It’s all about how you’ll style it lang,” she shares. “That’s how you’re gonna be comfortable with what you’re wearing.”
Are you beach-ready yet?
