Helpful Ways to Elevate Your UPF 50+ Wardrobe

 1. Find Versatile Layers

Think "what's a wardrobe staple I could throw on with anything I have in my closet that would instantly look stylish?" Remember UPF clothing doesn't just shield you from the sun, it can also be a fashion statement. 

Consider a chic wrap or a comfortable poncho that complements your outfit with the added bonus of sun protection. 

Layering with different UPF pieces allows you to adapt effortlessly to changing temperatures while staying stylish.

2. Make Sure to Accessorize

There are plenty of ways to dress up a UPF t-shirt or pants. Try adding a shawl, wrap, or light cardigan over your shirt for an instant chic look. You can also add a sun hat for a little flair too. Our women's sun hat guide will tell you exactly which sun hat is the perfect fit for you. 

Here are some additional accessories to consider: 

  • Sunglasses
  • Scarf
  • Bandana
  • Gloves

4. Choose Breathable Fabrics

Opt for UPF clothing made from breathable fabrics like cotton and bamboo or moisture-wicking materials. These fabrics not only keep you comfortable in warm weather but also allow for better airflow to prevent overheating. A breezy UPF dress or lightweight pants can effortlessly combine comfort and style for any activity.

5. Choose UPF Clothing That Can Transition Seamlessly From Day to Night

Another fashion tip is to find UPF clothing that's versatile enough to be able to transition from day to night seamlessly and still make you look styled. 

Create versatile looks that transition well from day to night by choosing adaptable pieces. A UPF maxi dress can be accessorized for a casual daytime look and easily transformed into an elegant evening outfit with the right accessories and layering.

Here are some ways to dress up a UPF outfit: 

  • Add a chunky necklace
  • Throw on a shawl or nice jacket
  • Add a scarf 
  • Put on a stylish hat
  • Grab a pair of nice sunglasses
  • Style with heels, boots, or fancy sandals
