Ever wanted to know how to wear a women's rashie with zip and make it look good? Well, you are not alone. A common misconception about wearing sun protection is that it is dull and not fashionable. Maybe in the past, the designs out there weren’t making a big fashion statement but rashies (especially women's rashies) have been modernised and are now making a fashion statement more than ever.
The key to wearing one and making it look good is in the detail. By this I mean what you pair it with or style it with. When buying a sun protection piece for yourself, have a good think of what you would pair it with. For example, your existing swimwear collection if you are wanting to wear it to the beach. Have a look at what colours you already have in your swim wardrobe and find a rashie in which the colour or print would work in beautifully. For example if you have a favourite bikini in a solid colour, why not look at a printed sun protective top which picks up the colour of the swimwear.
The other way around also holds, that if your swimwear is patterned or has a print on it, you could match in a solid colour top which works beautifully too. And also keep an eye out for some retailers that sell both the rashie and the swimwear to match which is another really great option.
You also don’t have to wear your top with swimwear as this sun protection clothing can work for anytime you are out and about in the sun. For example going for a walk or gardening are just a few of the activities that can expose you to the sun. If you want to match it in with long pants or shorts, again look at the colours in your wardrobe and that can give you great ideas of what colour or print would work in well.
One of the best parts of having a zip front in the rashie is not only the ease of putting on or taking off, but also having the zipper pulled up to your desired position. If you are wanting full sun protection and want to take advantage of the high neck, then have the zipper done all the way up. If you want a bit of cleavage showing, then having it down a bit looks really great too. Just remember though, any exposed skin should have a high SPF sunscreen on it so that you are protecting your skin at all times.
