Fashion no-gos on the beach! You should NEVER wear these 4 things on the beach
1. Cheap sunglasses
Sunglasses are the same as sunglasses? Are you kidding me? Are you serious when you say that! Especially on the beach, sunglasses are not just a fashionable accessory, but extremely important for protecting our eyes from dangerous UVA and UVB radiation. Cheap glasses without certified lenses only fool the eyes with the dark-tinted transparency, which can lead to irritation, inflammation and, in the worst case, to poor eyesight – so hands off! You can find out how to find high-quality sunglasses that protect your eyes adequately and are suitable for the special lighting conditions on the beach here:
Silver, pearls and precious stones are very sensitive and do not like salt water or strong sunlight. Fine sand is poison for clasps and frames, sun creams can lead to discoloration. In plain language, this means that jewelery does not belong on the beach. If you still don’t want to do without it, you should still wear gold, as the precious metal is relatively robust.
3. Ill-fitting beachwear
Unfortunately, not all women* feel 100% comfortable in swimwear – if the bikini bottoms don’t fit properly or the top keeps slipping, your good mood and your own self-confidence will quickly plummet. Not exactly practical either: if the sea is rough, loose-fitting swimwear can literally be washed away.
4. Leather bags
It’s obvious that you’d love to take your new it-bag with you everywhere – leather bags (especially those with metal details on clasps or handles) definitely don’t belong on the beach. Leather and metal can be scratched by sand, salt water and sunscreen can stain, and exposure to direct sunlight can fade and crack leather. The smarter and less sensitive alternative are raffia, wicker or fabric bags.
