1. 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. I 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.
2. 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.
I have a few off-the-shoulder dresses that I pull out every summer and I’m always adding new ones to my wardrobe. They are great pieces for achieving that easy summer style.
3. HATS ARE A GOOD IDEA
Everyone should own a hat! If you don’t own one it’s probably because you haven’t found the perfect one for you! They not only make a stylish summer statement but they also protect your face from the harmful sun rays.
I love wide brim straw fedora and rancher-style hats. Those look best on me and offer the best sun coverage other than beach hats. If you don’t know what type of hat looks best on you, take a trip to a local hat shop (also called a milliner) and have the shop owner help you out. It pays to go to a hat expert that knows what styles look best on different people.
