    I'm completely useless with fashion so would appreciate some advice.

    - I have scars on both my inner forearms, with more on the left.
    - They are 4 years old and have turned white and flattened.
    - It's going to be summer soon and I don't know what to do about the scars.
    - I know that scars shouldn't really be exposed to too much sunlight because of the lack of pigmentation.
    - I always put loads of suncream factor 50 on during the summer but I'm not sure that's good enough to protect my damaged skin.
    - I'm 5'10, gray eyes, freckles, pale white skin, short hair, size 12/14.

    Does anyone here have any ideas about what I could wear which would protect my skin against the sun but isn't going to be too hot? I'm a bit of a tomboy so don't like things that are too "girly", yet at the same time I do like to dress nicely so welcome any serious suggestions.

    How about check shirts to put on over Camis with some shorts
