As the heat of summer sets in, women everywhere trade their turtlenecks and winter boots for slingbacks and arm-exposing garments. The toasty summer weather commonly requires fashionistas to swap their covering garb for light and airy pieces that both reflect the season and ensure that the wearer does not succumb to the seasonal warmth. When summer breezes start to blow, you have an excuse to swap out your wardrobe.
For many women, summer is a time to free the toes and wear sandals. Pick a pair of sturdy sandals with a supportive sole to ensure that your feet don’t feel the brunt of your sandal wearing. Buy a pair in black or brown, or jazz up your toesies with some brightly colored sandals to make your feet stand out.
The maxi-dress is a popular summer choice. Maxi-dresses generally hug around the chest and feature either a halter or spaghetti-strapped top. Buy a maxi-dress–or four–in bold summer colors or with flamboyant prints. This easy summer getup allows you to simply throw on an outfit and hit the town.
Relaxed Baby Tee
Baby tees allow you to remain comfortable but still show your shapely figure. Buy some basic baby tees in an assortment of colors, or pick up some graphic tees that feature catchy phrases or interesting images. Pair your tee with capris or shorts to create a simple and attractive summer-appropriate look.
Comfy-as-Can-Be Denim Shorts
Denim shorts can get you through any summer hot spell. Select a pair of comfortably fitting jeans that reflect your style. If you prefer a more formal look, buy a tailored pair. If you instead are a bit bohemian, select a pair of cut-offs or distressed shorts. Your well-picked shorts can get you through anything, from a trip to the local pool to a Fourth of July barbecue.
Built-for-You Bathing Suit
The best summer bathing suit is whatever one fits you best. If you don’t quite feel right in a tiny bikini, trade this suit for a more modest tankini or even a one-piece. If you don’t feel comfortable in your bathing suit, it will show and you will not look your best.
Whether heading to the beach or jetting off on a vacation, every woman needs a bag to tote her prized possessions. Buy an oversized, bold catch-all bag to make your summer outings hassle-free and accent your attire. When selecting a bag, don’t worry about matching the tote to your garments, but instead pick a bag that is reflective of your style and makes a bold statement.
