Imagine being invited to a tropical destination wedding…in FEBRUARY! How would I ever be beach-ready in mid-winter? I hadn’t even lost my Christmas-cookie weight. And what about my lily-white body? Hard to imagine in a bathing suit…or was it?
I mentioned my anxiety to the aunt of the groom. She had the consummate reply: “I’m not worried…I have a GREAT cover-up!”
Ladies, fear not the swimsuit… Because It’s Really All About the Cover-up.
At our ages, we probably shouldn’t be worshipping the sun anyway. We should be lounging under a palapa, slathered with sunscreen, sipping a frosty margarita. In a fabulous cover-up!
Sometimes it can be more fun to shop for a cover-up than it is to shop for a bathing suit.
Image consultant Janna Beatty says, “Just as you would choose any other garment, look for a cover-up that is:
- A Beautiful Color: Pick a complementary color and appropriate pattern size.
- Flattering for Your Body Type: Choose a cover-up that enhances your best features.
- A Reflection of Your Personal Style: American classic, chic, sexy, exotic, fresh and natural.”
This was my cover-up of choice for the February wedding in Costa Rica.
Remember ladies, sometimes the cover-up can be just as alluring as the suit.
