8 Most Extraordinary Beach Trends

Off-the-Shoulder Swimsuits

Off-the-Shoulder Swimsuits

Off-the-shoulder swimsuits have already captured beaches around the world. Are you noticing anything strange on this picture? Well, you won’t able to put your hands up above your head getting such swimsuit on.  Such model is not intended for swimming. But if you want to sunbathe a little and then not to hide white lines left by standard models, the off-the-shoulder swimsuit will be definitely perfect for you.

 

Glitter Booty

Glitter Booty

Glitter and sequins are in vogue this summer.  They are applied on any part of the body, but exactly glitter hips are on trend at this moment.

“Glitter booty” is an idea of Mia Kennington, an artist, who found something original and attractive in sand on the skin associated with spending time on beaches. Mia is a member of the team of artists who do body painting at The Gypsy Shrine festivals.

To be edgy, apply some styling gel on the skin of the hips (with someone’s help, obviously) and then lay colorful sequins on it. To look even bolder and brighter, you can use some dye on the body beforehand. You won’t certainly be ignored on beaches!

Private Space

Private Space

Do you really think that all this stuff is necessary for you on the beach? The real trendy beach epidemic has captured Sea Isle City, New Jersey.

The point is that you need to “conquer” as much space as possible to relax, perhaps, create a barrier between you and other people on the beach who are doing the same what you are doing, and minimize an accidental contact. Yes, this is one of the most popular beach “trends” in New Jersey. Beaches are flooded with separate cabins, canopies, tents for toddlers and children, snack folding tables, inflatable pools, even rafts of the size of the double bed and other interesting elements.

“It’s really funny”, a lifeguard from Sea Isle City, NJ, says (he works on his ATV and, just for the record, other lifeguards’ equipment have been also updated). “It looks like a tent camp”. It’s hard to argue with that.

Coca-Cola for Tanning

Coca-Cola for Tanning

It’s time for the “don’t-do-that” category! How about using Coca-Cola for sunbathing? Well, it’s not such a good idea.

You already know that this drink is not healthy itself, and it has a more negative effect on the skin. People have been applying Coca-Cola on their skin for many years and they are naive to believe that the drink can help them bronze faster. Sad to say, there’s something to this, but the results can be more serious and negative than you expect.

The composition of Coca-Cola includes some dye based on caramel that paints the skin and gives it an artificial bronze shine. But you can get such shine if you use usual self-tanning cream. “The combination of soda and sunbeams can have a very bad effect on the skin”, Joshua Zeichner, a cosmetic and clinical researcher in Mount Sinai Hospital, a dermatologic centre in New York City, remarks. “The soda is acid. It scrubs dead cells and strengthens an ability of ultraviolet to be absorbed by the skin”.

Underwater “Belfies”

Underwater “Belfies”

When the new trend has appeared, vacation pictures from social networks became much “cheekier” than ever before. And this is thanks to the popularity of swimming pools with transparent walls.

Now hotels, guesthouses and beach clubs construct swimming pools with glass walls, so admirers of Instagram have immediately transformed them from ordinary amenities into interesting decorations for their photos for social networks. Now women in beautiful bikinis make full use of transparent constructions snuggling against the walls with their hips for spectacular photoshoots. Instagram users hide almost nothing posting such underwater pictures called “belfies”.

 

Fishwear

Fishwear

Strange clothes “made” of fish is a thing happening if you fish in just a swimsuit. So, what has this got to do with fishing? If luck is on your side and you have caught enough fish, just stand in front of the camera and hide your private body parts with fish. Your take must cover them completely. But if you fish is not large enough to hide your parts, “cover” yourself with two fish species!

Beach Humbleness

Beach Humbleness

In France there are many beaches where you often can meet naked people, but these beaches have recently become more modest. Now women who are under the age of 30 don’t swim in the sea without swimsuits.

According to the results of the survey, 35 percent of French women state that swimming and sunbathing without any clothes is inconceivable. Young women at the age of 18-24 are almost 50 percent of them. It is said that exactly young women visit beaches and such other places topless as they go along with such feminist groups, as Femen, as they want to express they have the same rights that men have. But everything changes. Most likely, a great amount of so-called adult movies on the Internet make women feel like they are too “easy” for men if they are naked.

Dresses of Watermelon

Dresses of Watermelon

Cute, nice, harmless and funny – these are the words to describe the beach. The best (and the cutest) summer trend is a dress made of watermelon. Dresses have already won Instagrammer’s attention and captured social networks.

If you have not seen such dresses in your Instagram, try to make it yourself! You just need a slice of watermelon and cut out a piece of a particular shape. Then pose in front of the camera, and your photograph needs to hold a slice of watermelon in a way that it fits your body perfectly. The photograph will create an illusion that have a watermelon dress on.
