I went on a beach/resort holiday and realised that I was lacking something to wear that wasn't quite ordinary summer clothes - more of a beach dress or fancy kaftan.
I had tunics, but they were more suitable for wearing with trousers.
Has anyone spotted good beach dresses in the sales? I am 38, size 12 and a bit bottom-heavy so like something with a waist that flairs out a bit. Look good in pink, red, purple, white, green and patterns of those colours. If there are any bargains out there I would be interested!
I don't like kaftans or floaty beachwear on me so have quite a few things now. I've had luck at ASOS and Accessorize this year, and have 2 older Dorothy Perkins dresses which are fantastic as beach/pool cover ups. They aren't beachwear as such - just very light, simple dresses that work well over bikinis for beachwear. One is thin jersey, and the other is a very light cotton. Look in dresses online and sort by price - often the lowest priced dresses can be quite simple and suitable for beachwear.
