What We've Learned From Kate Hudson About Looking Better At The Beach

Kate Hudson was photographed on the set of Something Borrowed in the Hamptons wearing this tres chic beach outfit. From the flattering cover-up, to the big smile and boozy accessory, she looks confident and care free. So get over that bikini-related phobia, and follow Hudson’s easy steps to looking better at the beach.

1. White Cover-Ups Make You Look More Tan, and Thus More Thin

Even the fairest ladies on the beach know that a great white cover-up or white tee makes you look more tan. We also love the plunge neckline of Hudson’s Missoni dress – choosing a flattering cover-up style for your body type is key.

The waistline drawstring, plunge neckline and short sleeves of this sexy Milly Ava Voile Tunic ($210) are just like Hudson’s, aka super flattering, and puts terry cloth beach covers to shame.

2. Tame Unruly Beach Hair – And Avoid Sea-Salt Dread Locks – With a Silk Head Scarf

If you think wind and salt and sun equal bad hair day, you are wrong. It’s simply an opportunity to accessories with super cute hats, scarves and high ponytails.

Avoid beach-hair, and look put-together even on the windiest of days, with a bold, geometric silk scarf like Hudson’s character did – like this Emilio Pucci Leite silk scarf ($156, down from $260).

3. Rock Oversize Sunglasses That Make You Look Like a Movie Star

This one is self-explanatory – but dramatic, dark sunglasses are an easy way to make the beach look chic.

And why not snag a designer pair marked 65% off like these Emilio Pucci Gene round-framed sunglasses ($122.50, down from $350)?

4. Accessorize with Sports Equipment

Get off the beach towel and grab whatever paddle, racquetball or Nerf ball is closest and actually enjoy the day. Don’t worry, you will still be catching rays – and getting major points with the dudes nearby.

Be popular on the beach by bring a badminton set along, like this Halex Backyard Badminton Game ($9.99).

4. If all Else Fails, Get Some Liquid Courage

Okay – we’re only half kidding here.
