White suits—transparent when wet.
Golden-girl prints—huge florals and garish colors equal Instant Grandma.
Suntans—dangerous and wrinkle-promoting.
Giant T-shirts—sloppy and unbecoming. Invest in a proper cover-up.
That pilly, saggy look—suits get worn out; buy a new one every few years.
Suits with skirts—they hide nothing. High-cut legs actually have an elongating effect.
Plus: Instead of tanning, try a TanTowel (from $21 for ten): fantastic self-tanning wipes that make pastiness obsolete.
