Elegant Beachwear: Classy Fashion Tips For The Beach


How to look elegant on the beach? I think we all should master this as elegant ladies. For this reason, I think this
video is going to be very suitable as summer is just starting now. And I’m really happy because it’s the favorite time of the year for me at least. Now, how are we going to be elegant on the beach? You see on the beach, there
isn’t really many styles one can attain, right? We all kind of more or less look
the same, there is not much we can wear because it’s hot because we want to have
a tan and so on. But of course, there are a few hacks that can make you look a bit
more elegant than perhaps somebody who does not necessarily know how to look affluent and sophisticated on the beach. Before I continue ladies, I have created
a cheat sheet just for you on the topic of fashion and how to look expensive. It’s a cheat sheet that helps you cover the most important aspects that you
should think about when you are styling yourself so that you can look
more expensive and especially if you are on the budget. www.classycheatsheet.com This cheat sheet is absolutely free of charge
so just leave your email and you will receive it in your inbox. Now the first things first that you need to
think about, it’s what are you going to wear, a swimsuit or a bikini? Majority of us wear bikinis because we want to get maximum tan. It’s not fun to have those
nasty tan lines so I personally prefer bikini however, in recent years
I also started to use a lot of bathing suits. I don’t think it’s a must to wear
swimsuit even those swimsuits. they tend to look a little bit more elegant than
bikinis because they cover up and they have usually this kind of more elegant
cut and style to them than what a bikini is. I mean there are different types of
bikinis and I’m going to now show you some examples. I think definitely a must is to have a bikini that is suitable for your body
shape and for your bust size. If your chest is large and you cannot get away
by having a triangle bikini, it’s not really going to give you any support and
it’s not going to make your chest look flattering unless you have had a breast
augmentation. For that reason ladies who have a larger chest
must have a bra that’s supporting their chest. So that it doesn’t look like
something is just dangling around or everything is where it’s supposed to be
and that is what will add elegance when you are on the beach. If you’re somebody
with a smaller chest then you don’t have to really be very concerned because
everything will be staying in place for you. Now if you’re somebody for instance
who have a little bit of stomach, definitely worth taking a bathing suit
over a bikini. If you’re somebody who has a flat stomach before lunch but afterwards, get quite bloated then maybe can be worth thinking about what time
you’re going on to the beach and whether you should wear a bikini or a bathing
suit, depending on how your situation is. It’s definitely a must to think about
these details because you want to look your best right? And you can actually
make it work on the beach even though clothes tend to be minimalistic. But thank God for cover-ups and especially for us who feel a bit self-conscious
with our bodies, we perhaps are not in our best shape and coverup is really
what’s going to save us this summer. There are many beautiful cover-ups to choose from. I think that the kind of very mainstream. Tunic is a little bit boring
because it just a little bit overpowering in my opinion, I’m not dismissing it, by the way, I think it absolutely works and there are many
beautiful like expensive tunics maybe even designer tunics that you can wear
and look absolutely fabulous. You have those who are more mid length,
you have those shorter and you have those who are really long. But the only problem with the tunics in my opinion is that regardless of your body shape,
this is a garment that will make you look bulky. So I feel like there are more ways
and better ways where you can have this kind of elegance and femininity to you
when you are on the beach but you were still trying to cover up. I think brands like Emilio Pucci, Missoni are great for beachwear especially
cover-ups. You can have very elegant kind of tunics but you can also get
like nice like skirts or for instance like some trousers that you
wear as a cover-up. But all of them are in light material and they’re also made to be a cover-up for the beach. You can also have the usual that you just wrap
around your body. But one thing that I really want you to avoid is kind of
these jersey-like, cotton-like casual clothes that you think that works for
the beach because you can just kind of toss around them. Maybe it’s a t-shirt, maybe it’s a long t-shirt,
maybe it’s some like mini shorts of some kind of
some, I don’t know cotton or jersey or some type of material like that that
will make you look extremely cheap on the beach. But I want you to really think
about investing in some very luxurious, if it’s not really expensive but make it
look luxurious. Perhaps maybe, I know silk can be very difficult on the beach so you don’t really necessarily have to get that. Although I know Emilio Pucci does some amazing things in sell for the beach, but definitely maybe something of
like light material, type of chiffon like material. You can find really nice
polyester ones that are not rough polyester because that’s definitely like
a no-go, but some nice more delicate polyester. There are different grades to
polyester today’s, so you’re able to find some that are a little bit more
expensive looking. Now, what about shoes? Shoes are very simple and usually the
standard girl would wear her flip-flops, maybe her Havaianas but they’re not
really going to make you look expensive and elegant. They’re absolutely fine if
you’re very much on a tight budget. I wouldn’t tell you yes go and splurge now
on that $500 pair of shoes for the beach. But the problem is that
definitely is going to not make you look more elegant and expensive with a pair
of rubber flip-flops. One thing that I also want to really mention and when
are we talking about rubber flip-flops is that they are only meant for you when
you are around the pool. I really do not understand those who are walking
around their flip-flops like around town, to run errands and so on. Regardless if you are
in a hot country, it’s really against like dress etiquette to wear them
because they’re not made for you know what running errands and walking around town. I used to also be somebody who would wear a pair of jeans and some rubber
Havaianas so I’m not perfect. But then I understood that it’s actually not
appropriate footwear and you know what it’s not even the most comfortable to be
walking around in a lot. So that’s definitely something that I’ve left in my past. But I really want you to invest in some
proper beach wear shoes, sandals, of course, flats, the ones that you can just slip in with your feet and that
looks casual and chic. And the most popular one for the beach,
you will see plenty of jetset babes wear them, the Hermes slipper. It is a comfortable one
but you cannot walk for very long with it. So for that reason, ladies tend to
wear it like literally for the beach club or the pool area. You can also walk
around a little bit in them but they’re not really that comfortable. So you won’t be able to maybe walk like a whole day doing sighting in these type of shoes. So these are more for the beach and they cost around $600-700. But I really think that this is a good investment because it will elevate your whole look
and it is a bit of a how can I say. it is a little bit of a status symbol,
right? So people recognize this shoe and I see like, okay well she seems to have
the style you know. So definitely go for something like that if you want to look
a little bit more elegant and kind of just elevates your look just a little bit Now lastly and this is actually the biggest and most important part for you to
take into account, the right accessories. Now the accessories is really what’s
going to elevate you to the next level because those are the details that will
kind of add the glamor factor to your overall appearance. I know that you can
create a lot of glamour with just like a bathing suit or some nice slippers and
so on or a nice cover-up but, what really is going to set the whole tone is if you have for instance a really nice hat. I think a hat is very important for the beach. I think it’s actually a must-have, why? Number 1, we need to protect our
scalp from the sun. It’s not good for your hair, it’s not good for your scalp, you burn yourself and you really have to
protect your head. I never used to understand that when I was younger, but as I’m now grown up, I understand. I cannot be without a hat in the sun,
so these days I always wear a hat. And if you’re gonna wear a hat,
do not go for some boring baseball cap. I mean that’s not going to elevate your look, right? Go for something a bit more glamorous. You don’t need to exaggerate and look like a
cliche movie star, but something within those lines, right? We want to look sophisticated so maybe we want to have a little bit of a bigger hat but I personally prefer Maison Michel Hats. I think they’re gorgeous and they’re not
too much, they’re just perfect, they look very sophisticated, very old money chic, so you can definitely buy a Maison Michel Hat and you’ll be totally on point. But perhaps the accessory that makes a very big impact is the beach bag. Now when it comes to the beach bag, I really think there is a lot of room for
improvisation if you do not have a budget to spend on like a designer
beach bag. So it’s actually not really a must. There are many beautiful straw bags. You can even get like a very affordable high streets bags that are perfect
for the beach. But as long as they’re not in some textile, okay? I think if you want to go for a textile beach bag, then Chanel is the one and only. Those textile bags are beautiful and very chic, so you can definitely get away with one of those. But do not go to Zara or another brand and get a textile bag, that is just not going to look very expensive. You want to have this kind of expensive
factor because that’s kind of what makes you look a bit more glamorous on the beach. And I would personally say the Chanel tote bag is probably the most
popular beach bag for you know, glamorous women for jetset babes. But it doesn’t mean all of them are wearing it. There are many variations and there many
fashionable women who feel like, okay maybe the Chanel tote bag is a
little bit cliche, I’m gonna go for something that is a not too much logo,
not too much in your face and so on. So, you can decide which direction you want to take, whatever budget you have and so on. But there are ways to go around it. And as we’re speaking of budget, of course, there are things that I’ve mentioned today here that are expensive, Maison Michel Hat, the Hermes slippers,
the Chanel bag and definitely a few brands
that I’ve mentioned throughout this video. So yes, it does cost when you are
on the beach, if you buy this hat, if you buy this bikini or something. It’s not something you necessarily
go to throw away the next day. So I think this is
definitely an investment and a lot of the times ladies asked me,
but how am I going to finance all this? Well, this is the thing, an affluent lifestyle, it requires finances/ Of course, you have to acquire finances somehow and I talk about the financial strategy a lot in my online finishing school because of course, it’s a big topic. There are many ways how you can make this lifestyle work. Of course, you can acquire all of this
by yourself through hard work and through saving money and so on, but you can also have a man spoiling you,
looking after you, your husband paying for you and so on. So it really depends on what situation you’re in and what direction you want to go. Having said all these, if you still haven’t watched my video, How To Look Expensive On the budget, then make sure you watch that one. It’s one of my most popular videos,
so don’t miss that because there I speak a little bit more about fashion
hacks that can make you look more expensive but still be on the budget. Now make sure you watch my other videos and if you’re interested in my online finishing school. I will see you in the next video!

  1. Hello just tell me where can i buy a Chanel beach bag because I look on the website and they don't have any of the bags you show here on the video???, and I'm going crazy for one!!!

  2. OMG, hot hot tips. I totaly need to elevate my beach looks, after this video I realized that I am a hot mess at the beach. Thanks God for straw acessories, our wallets appreciate it, lol.

  3. Ladies don't forget the makeup. Definitely waterproof and subtle (not a full face of makeup). Lipstick, mascara, blush, and eyeliner are non-negotiable.

  4. Anna, I am super happy to see that your channel is growing! I am an ex-jet set babe who ended up marrying a normal Joe. Together we have built a great life together where we can afford to and splurge on a few things and enjoy life a little. I love watching your channel to get inspiration on what items I'm missing in my closet that I should invest in and still look put together. I have many friends in my circle who have a closet full of designer items but they don't necessary look stylish or act classy. Keep up the great work in helping women feel confident and empowered. now, I need to get me a cute inexpensive straw beach bag, classy sandals for the pool, and cover up to mix in with my designer summer accessories.

  5. Anna, I want to thank you so much for being an inspiration to me and changing my life, I went through some traumatic hardships and lost myself in the process. By listening and following your content I have transformed, I lost my last 10lbs, I’m back to my gorgeous sexy self, I returned to taking care of my skin through monthly treatments, I do Pilates and running again, and have been taking care of my hair and make sure I keep up with my blonde highlights. I’m back to wearing the outfits and 👠 that I love and being a beautiful woman inside and out. And now an elegant woman with confidence.Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart for transforming my life, it means so much to me❤️

  6. A nice beach bag is definitely a great investment. I still use mine from several years ago. These tend not to go out of style as quickly as a regular bag and the material is truly durable for its purpose. As always, great video! 🙂

  7. Anna, your videos are amazing. Keep going, you are saving many good girls for someone who actually appriciates. Love to come back here when ever I have time.

  8. Please make a video on how to dress for monsoon season and look chic.
    Love your videos. I'm from India and we have 4 months of monsoon season from June to September and it's so difficult to look chic while working and travelling for work in monsoon. Your insight will help a great deal

  9. I like her fashion tips a lot, however I doubt if luxury bags and shoes will attract decent men.

    They may attract patrons, but about rich unmarried boyfriends, probably will push them away.

    Because decent single guys may doubt where you get these luxury bags without a decent job and rich family.
    They may also have concern on your brain if you spend most of your saving on looks.

    I think as Anna said looking classy, feminine is definitely important.
    However luxury bags doesn't help much, you can get them when you are with somebody.
    You can have one, but I one is enough in your early twenties.

    Otherwise you may lose chances attracting decent guys who are future millionaires.

    You may say you want to attract a young millionaires not a future one, then remember, it is very easy for them to have a woman without any investments.
    Then what is what you can offer?
    Your bags? Your shoes?

    Nah. Unless you want a patron, these are waste of money.

  10. I really like your videos but I don’t understand why only the expensive brands on anything can make you look elegant? I would really like to see a video of how to look elegant on a budget. There are so many brands like Massimo Dutti and Mango that is affordable and look classy. Not allof of us can afford 600$ shoes for the beach.

  11. I have no idea if you’ve covered this before- but possibly do a video on workout clothes? I know it’s hard to look elegant while working out and all, but I was just wondering 😅

  12. Very nice video! As a stylist I always get amazed by peopke wearing things that I think 😳?? But must say I really do not like the Hermes slippers. I just am not a fan of how they look.

  13. I love lux fashion but you can look good in cheap clothing if it is neat, well looked after and in neutral tones. If your outfit goes to together and you have matching accessories you can look a million bucks when you’ve only spent a little

  14. So I'm from Brazil were the Havaianas are from and yes they were invented to use all around, not just the pool. Especially because they were invented back when home pools were not even a thing. Each person has there preferences and you may think they look ugly and personally I only use them at home, at the pool or the beach, but you can't give wrong information.

  15. I can't believe you didn't talk about sunglasses.. that was the part I was mostly looking forward too.. very good video though I would prefer if next time you talked a little bit more about specific designs and materials

  16. You wanna look truly elegant? Buy a one piece that flatters you. Get a big hat and some nice shades. Shave and lotion your legs. And bam, you’re done! Men who are looking for a girlfriend, will go after a woman showing skin. Men who are looking for a WIFE, look for women who are more covered up.

  17. I got my own money luckily my significant one has money too. I too , just love to watch her video since I’m always wearing hospitals scrubs because I want to be up to date with fashion.

  18. (Replying to the comments not anna) you dont have to be rich to buy clothes to attract an SD Or provider husband whatever you are looking for. I like to show up to the first few dates looking put together and feminine but the clothes are a bit washed out and old looking. This inspires him to make the next date shopping 👍👍 ive been doing this since HIGHSCHOOL it works on guys of all ages !! why would he take you shopping if you AlReADy GoT iT. And i would recommend never wearing designer stuff around them, that is for them to buy for you if that is what you wish

  19. Ive recently met a businessman who works for a very famous oil n gas company. And he told me that I was attractive then he said if I truly want to attract a successful man I need to lose weight, wear heels and do the opposite of kim k because this 'brunette' look is not classy..ugh I literally despise Kim k but as a Latina I was born with the brunette look. I think affluent men don't like olive skin yet they love women who tan to be olive skin… Even successful Latino men go for blondes…. Sad…. The guy was my height 5'6 yet like women with heels

  20. Can you please do a video on how to dress casual and sophisticated? Like the grocery store or to do errands, please!

  21. Every single girl in the pictures you use are all affluent and skinny if like it if you have more examples of these clothes on different types of people

  22. I wore a carefully chosen bikini from Etam that fit me well and with my skin tone. It had a nice fabric detailing too. All the people at the pool were staring at me. Lol.

  23. Use sunblock people! Her info is good and you do NOT have to be rich to add her advice to your life in an affordable way. I do not wear jeans since I was early 20s and I have a variety of pants slacks etc. I just wear what I am comfortable in. Flip flops was for the beach when I was growing up. Women with dirty feet in a big city is ughhhh!

  24. JCPenneys has some cute flip-flops and their well made and it's only 15 dollars .and best part their not that hard plastic that hurt your feet and other summer clothes items. And their not that expensive. But only if Anna approves of this store

  25. I think coton or linen, or light viscose are always better than polyester, especially on the beach/in very hot weather. Also, the rubber flip-flops are actually very comfortable and practical, since you are going to be walking on sand et wet them, it's also more hygienic since they dry out quickly.

  26. Look expensive with Pucci cover-up, Hermès flats, Chanel bag and a USD 300 hat, well anyone can do it! And if you have a USD 2000 beach outfit, well you are already rich!

  27. This is so toxic XD you associate fat with unfashionable, lazy and not elegant??? Dude you only show people who are extremely thin and tall and 90% white. This is 2019, not the 1950s

  28. I agree with a lot of what you are saying until you start pushing brands. Elegance does not have to be brand focused.

  29. Fortunately I can ignore all these tips except choosing a flattering bathing suit. I go to the beach to have fun and enjoy my summer. Not to look skinny and hot all the time. I'd rather impress people with my intelligence than my looks.

  30. A well-dressed woman with taste and style NEVER EVER wears or uses ANYTHING with a fashion logo, animals, writing, etc. on it. Carrying a beach bag with a huge fashion house logo on it brands you as a cheap social climber quicker than anything else. We avoid looking shallow and foolish! Spending thousands and hundreds of dollars on a bag is surely a sin when so many noble and worthy causes could use that money you have just spent on something as silly as a bag. Spend the money on a good coat, yes. On an expensive bag, no.

  31. Another recommendation I’d say for sandals that are great for walking around in is Salt Water Sandals. They have a nice website with strap and non strap sandal choices, that are pretty affordable, but not cheap material.

  32. So… The main message in all your videos is: you can‘t be elegant unless you are rich and buy very expensive clothes, bags and shoes. Wow thank you. I think you had some good aspects but THAT is nothing that helps young women to become more elegant. They just feel bad about themselves because they can‘t afford slippers for 700 Dollars or a bag from Chanel.

  33. A really eye opening experience for me was when I went for a boat tour with my family as a teen. My family and I were joking around having the best time, we got to swim and snorkel and enjoy ourselves. There was another girl about my age on the boat, she was gorgeous. She had a designer swim suit and perfect makeup and she had just entered the modeling agency. All of the old ladies on the boat were buzzing about how mature and wonderful this girl was because she just sat there quietly unlike us uncivilized children who were laughing (gasp). She didnt even get her SWIMSUIT wet. Meanwhile she looked downright miserable. So the important lesson I learned was that happiness and joy of life > superficial meaningless values such as your so called "class".

  34. I live in a hot country, trust me, flip flops against the concrete and asphalt are hell and your feet sunburn.

  35. Watching your videos has reminded me of how much I miss tailoring my outfits and sewing. I used to work in a textile warehouse and my favorite part was getting to play with the luxury fabrics. I have never cared for synthetic fabrics, but even in some mid range stores like Neiman Marcus polyester is king. Definitely going to get back to making my own clothes and splurging on accessories and lingerie. I hope you are having a beautiful summer!

  36. Not everyone can be elegant even if they wear fashionable clothes.being elegant at first place comes from one's personality,decent behaviour,family standards and ethics.

  37. So what I'm getting is that to look elegant you have to buy expensive stuff😂
    In my opinion, these things will only make you stuck up and a snob.
    Don't get me wrong, I didn't disagree with all the points she made, some of them were really good.

  38. FYI my "rich" boyfriend loves it when I wear my $2 flip flops!✌🏻
    PLUS they're the comfiest and I could walk in them all day 👌🏻
    It's not about how expensive you dress, man.
    Ethics dude ! ethics are important ! and being nice and kind! Not a judgemental, plastic lipped nitpicker!

  39. Brilliant tips as always. I loved so many of your examples shown with the oversized sunglasses, hat and coverup. Super classy. Thank you Anna.

  40. Genuinely, if you want to look like you have old money, or even if you want to look like you didn’t get rich by winning the lottery yesterday, don’t do this! Don’t buy bags with brands stapled across the front like a badge of wealth! That will not make you look elegant, it will make you look like a wannabe, not to mention if you’re just now trying to get into high society, you might not even have the financial security to buy a bag reaching into the thousands. Dress elegantly, with as expensive (or expensive looking) fabrics as you can, and carry yourself with grace, but just know, an actual millionaire or generally rich person, will never be strutting around with labels written all over them!

  41. I’m 4ft 11 and a very round Apple shape with a short body and short legs. I’m never going to look ‘elegant’ no matter how much I spent on clothes. Elegance comes easier to tall women.

  42. Anna, haven't you been thinking about doing a video focused on underwear? It's literally killing me when I see a woman in fabulous dress, wearing inappropriate pieces of lingerie (whether it is a weird shape, visible panty lines, badly fitting bras, etc.) … Also, I would be curious about your tips on high quality and elegant lingerie 🙂

  43. I wish the most of the people on the beach watched this video, most people on my vacation wore bikini’s wich are 2 sizes to small 😂 i had a 1950’s style bathing suit , but i prefer bikini even though i am plus size , but i need a high waist and a good supporting top but i couldt find it so that’s why the bathing suit.
    And about the Shoes i even don’t understand how people can wear havainas all day long , i can only walk 200 meters with them haha

  44. I’ve been watching your tips. They’re exactly the tips I want to know. I love the idea of looking like classic young lady. I believe fashion is a little over the top these days and I don’t really like to show my skin at all so I try to find out what to wear and cover up without looking lazy. Thank you. I really appreciate it.

  45. Anna, could you please suggest a few brands for the sandals and coverup that are a bit less expensive than Chanel and Emilio Pucci, but are still producers of chic, beautiful clothing and accessories?

  46. "If you're someone who has a little bit of a stomach" literally 90% of women bc our organs make our stomach rounder and having the slightest bit of fat, which is natural and healthy, will accentuate the stomach

    Also the Hermes sandal/slipper is really ugly and reminds me of the house shoes that Asian grandmas wear.
    I saw the exact same style only a week ago in a Turkish shoe shop in a village. Real leather. Good quality. And guess the price…. €12.
    Ladies, dont waste your money on those shoes

  47. 11:59 hm so the goal is to be a social climber and to marry rich dudes to spoil you. Got it.

    The Chanel tote bag looks unnecessary & cheap though. It’s better if you support local islander manufacturers rather than be a sheep that just buys anything that’s in-your-face logo. The old rich doesn’t do that; maybe the nouveau riche

  48. All these things, a high end swim suit, a chic cover-up, 600 dollar slippers and designer beach bag,,, will be useless if you somehow manage to afford them and then wear them to a public beach. Setting and location play an equally important role. These things might elevate your look at the marina club or some private beach but in a public area, they will only make you appear ridiculous and trying-too-hard.

  49. Thanks for sharing this with us..please do a video on how to choose the appropriate dress for the occasion ..thank you my lady ..you are so talented 😍❤❤

  50. Havaianas are really useful at the beach next to my hometown since its a VERY simple place packed with people who will usually steal your nicer sandals.
