LIGHT COLORS ARE BETTER THAN DARK
Not only will lighter colors keep you cooler (black absorbs more heat), but they also have a better summer vibe. We mean you could wear dark colors such as black, charcoal, violet, or dark blue, but it doesn’t have that light airy feel that is synonymous with summer.
NATURAL MAKEUP IS BEST
If you ask us, nothing is worse than wearing a ton of makeup on a hot summer day. Light and natural makeup is the way to go during the summer season. Put away the heavy black eyeliner, dark shadows, heavy foundation, and dark lipstick. Instead wear pretty neutral eyeshadows, tinted moisturizers and nude, pink, or rose stains and tinted balms.
As for foundation, unless you’re going to a summer event, wear a tinted moisturizer. To add that gorgeous summer glow add a touch of liquid highlighter to your summer makeup routine. Just dab a bit of highlighter to the tops of your cheekbones, brow bones, and the bridge of your nose.
FLOWY TOPS, DRESSES & SKIRTS ARE BETTER THAN FORM-FITTING
The summer calls for light fabrics that float in the wind. To give off the summer lovin’ vibe, opt for flowy clothing instead of anything that is skin tight. Find clothing made in light cotton, silk, chiffon, lace or crochet. This applies to everything: dresses, skirts, tops, rompers, and even shorts.
OFF-THE-SHOULDER TOPS AND DRESSES ARE ALWAYS SEXY
Every couple of years off-the-shoulder clothing becomes popular. All the stores have them in stock and everyone is wearing them. But off-the-shoulder tops and dresses are stylish every summer. Don’t think of them as trendy or disposable, because they really are a fashion staple that you can wear every year.
We advise this for two reasons. First, summer is hot and wearing clothing that is very form fitting will make you and your clothes sweaty. Secondly, flowy clothing and summer go hand in hand.
OWN AT LEAST ONE STRIPED SHIRT
A striped shirt is the perfect summer piece. Its nautical vibe and classic style makes it easy to style in a variety of summer outfits.
If you only own one striped shirt, opt for the classic boat neck, three-quarter sleeve shirt in white and dark blue. The stripes are not too thick and are horizontal, of course.
You can pair a striped shirt with practically anything: shorts, skirts, pants, denim or otherwise.
We hope these summer fashion tips have helped you realize that you don’t have to be trendy to be stylish!
