Summer is the ideal time for dressing up and looking like a goddess – when the reality is most of us reach work looking like a sweaty wreck rather than feeling cool and calm. Summer styling can be hard to get right, in particular, if you are juggling a hectic family life or do not have much time in the mornings to get your outfit together. So, make sure that you keep it chilled, and you will find that you stress less, by simply throwing on a floaty number, using a few quick tricks to finish your hair and makeup and finally adding in those all-important seasonal accessories.
In the warmer summer weather, you need to make sure that you put comfort and practicality over style, no matter how much you may disagree. Opt for long summer dresses and make sure that you are as bold and colorful as you dare, even if you normally stick to beige or dull tones. When it comes to office wear, you can dress up a pretty summer dress with a few choice accessories or a smart blazer, to add a touch of class to any warm-weather outfit. Make sure that you consider your underwear choice also, and choose cotton pants or a bralette in flesh tones under outfits so that you avoid having your smalls on the show. Enjoy it, as this is the one time of year when you can dress up your favorite summer dress or skirt for any occasion.
Simple make up
Hot sweaty weather means that you need to go easy on the makeup and styling products, but this is not always easy in particular if you work in a corporate environment. Choose light, fresh makeup shades and try out powder foundation as opposed to using a cream base – in particular, if you get sweaty and sticky easily. When it comes to summer hair products, try using a mousse to keep your hair in place and looking effortlessly chic all day. Finish off your look with a quick spritz of perfume, and you are ready to go.
Any outfit needs some seriously stylish accessories to finish it off, so make sure you choose yours wisely. If you have a straw bag from your last vacation to hand, then you can dress this up with a ribbon, and you will soon have a practical and on-trend accessory to use for work and play. Opt for chunky heels or wedges, and you will be comfortable and summer ready all day long.
If you usually take hours to get ready, then you can think again when it comes to effortless summer styling. Be sure to choose loose clothing and embrace patterns and bold colors so that you inject some class into your wardrobe. Make sure that you keep your make up light and fresh, to avoid you looking sweaty and flustered. Finally, finish off any outfit with a cute summer accessory, and you are more than prepared to enjoy those long hot summer nights.
