Is your summer style lacking? Are you embarrassed about going out in public with your current summer fashion looks? Well, worry no longer. Tons of people freak out every year when the summer begins, but there are easy ways to figure out your style!
Fashion can be stressful, so we’re here to help you figure out what exactly you need help with in your summer outfit choices. Here are 8 great tips for improving your fashion this summer!
- Using Jewelry
Jewelry is a simple and easy way to dress up your summer look. And it doesn’t have to be expensive, either! Try DIY necklaces to class up your act without breaking the bank.
Or, try making jewelry about of shells to stick with an entirely beachy-keen theme. There are tons of different ways you can experiment with jewelry to bring your summer style to the next level. If you’re not into the DIY projects, you can always purchase jewelry that looks handmade (or is made by someone else) to keep it super on-theme and cute.
- Stick to Lighter Colors
Wearing black and other dark colors in the middle of summer is both a style no-no and pretty uncomfortable. Black attracts the sun, so you’ll be much hotter in darker colors!
Instead, try switching to lighter colors like whites, blues, and pinks. Or, keep it on the summer theme with yellows and oranges for the sun and ocean blues for the beach. As long as you keep it light, you can basically choose whatever color works best for your taste and your skin tone!
- Keep you Makeup On Point
One of the most difficult parts of summer is working out how to keep your makeup from melting off your face and making a huge mess. Well, good news — there are products that can help! Setting spray is one great option for keeping your makeup intact throughout the day.
- Stay Loosey-Goosey
You really don’t want to be stuck in form-fitting clothes all summer. Instead, try looser, flowy clothing, in lighter fabrics like linen or cotton. That way, you’ll be cool and comfortable while going about your day!
And, you can mix and match your fabrics for a shift in different textures. Try linen bottoms with a cool cotton crop top to show some cool contrast with your new breezy style.
- Get Your Hair Off Of Your Face
Long hair is one of the biggest issues many people have during the summer. It gets really hot with it taking over your head! But there are tons of really cool ways you can keep your hair — and the sweat — off your neck.
Here are some great hairstyles you may want to try out during the hot summer months:
- Fishtail braids
- Top bun
- High ponytail
- Classic French braid
- Twisted bun
- Side ponytail
- Half up and half down with floral pins
- Pull through braid
These are just some of the hairstyles that can keep you feeling fresh and cool all super long. Don’t be afraid to experiment with different styles until you find what’s right for you!
- Put A Hat On It
Hats aren’t just a great style choice — there’s also important for protecting your skin from the sun! But, it’s important to know what your hat options are. Here are a couple of different types of hats that are appropriate for your new summer look:
- Straw hat
- Cowboy hat
- Bucket hat
- Raffia hat
- Baseball hat
These hats are all great examples of hats you can wear all summer long. But don’t take our word for it — give it a shot!
- Try Some Patterns
Patterns are a really wonderful way to mix up your summer wardrobe. You can try some wide horizontal stripes for a nautical look, or do some intricate florals for something light and breezy. Try a Hawaiian shirty for some vacation-themed vibes for your day out on the town. If you’re feeling peckish, put on something fruity-themed while you sip happy hour cocktails by the pool. If you’re a little more balanced, perhaps something with a geometric pattern fits your style sensibilities a little more closely.
The sky is the limit when it comes to appropriate summer patterns, so give it a shot today!
- Layer Up Your Look
One very important aspect of summer style is layering. Incorporating layering into your style is really useful when it comes to hot summer days and cool summer nights. That because you can always add or remove a layer if it gets too hot or cold for your taste!
Pack a cardigan in your bag if it’s going to be a long day, or throw an oversized linen shirt over your tank top to keep the sun from burning your skin. Keep your denim jacket tied around your waist in case of a breezy wind storm, or keep an open nit sweater as a beach coverup. There are tons of options out there for you to try out this summer!
Plus, you can use layering come fall to keep wearing your new summer duds when it gets a little chillier outside!
