The sun is out, temperatures are rising and the people of Chicago couldn’t be more ecstatic. Summer. Is. Coming. The time of year has finally come where we can confidently throw on a dress (without tights), sport some sandals and head to the beach. While a healthy summer glow is what most of us strive for during these warm months, the secret to keeping it healthy is to always be aware that the sun truly is everywhere, all the time. You’re probably thinking, ‘Well, I’m definitely not loading up on sunscreen all day everyday,’ and you don’t have to. Enter, Mott50. This sartorially on point brand marries style and sun-protective wear together resulting in the ultimate summer essential.
Mott50 offers adorable, relaxed apparel and accessories with a UPF of 50 built right into the fabrics! Now, this is a major upgrade from your standard white tee that has a fraction of that at just 5 UPF. They achieve this high level of UV protection from the tightness of the weave, amount of saturation during the dye process and the types of thread used – bamboo is often used as it is high in oxygen. Aside from the amazing benefit of protecting your skin from those powerful rays, one of the best things about this ‘beach-to-BBQ’ brand is that it is chock full of great basics that are super easy to style!
No matter which city you reside in, take some tips from Mott50 and protect your skin while still looking chic and put together in and out of the water. Style their Jackie – Boyfriend Button Down with a pair of brightly colored shorts and a simple tank. This oversized top is great for a swim suit cover-up and can also be layered with dresses, sweaters and even other button downs for a look so versatile, you can incorporate this staple into your wardrobe during any season.
Speaking of versatility, many of Mott50’s apparel can be used in and out of the water, but some can even triple as active wear. Their Taylor – Swim Half Zip top is made of luxe, quick dry fabric that can go from a run on the beach, to a dip in the pool, to a cute and casual outfit during the day. Three outfits in one? Now that’s what we like to hear.
Looking for the perfect beach-to-BBQ outfit? Try pairing their Jessica – Swim Crop Top or their Mila – Long Sleeved Swim One Piece (they’re both amazing), with the Barbara – Beach Pants. These pants are so comfortable you will never want to take them off and when combined with the Jessica top or Mila suit, sun protection and compliments are guaranteed.
No matter where you are, what the occasion, or what the temperature, take care of your skin — this summer especially. What better way to do that than by looking adorable on the beach, in the water or at those summer parties? Make sure to check out Mott50 to learn more about sun protection and to peruse all the chic items they have to offer, obviously.
