Summer in Houston is HOT HOT HOT!! This summer is especially supposed to be brutal and keeping cool is going to be a big challenge! While the current situation isn’t travel or going out friendly, getting dressed hasn’t been cancelled and hence today I am sharing 8 fashion do’s for summer, so read along…
1. CHOOSE NATURAL FIBERS TO BEAT THE HEAT
When it comes to fabrics, choose lighter options like cotton, rayon and linen. Breathability is key when the sun comes out to play as it helps keep you cool and also mkaes you sweat less.
2. EMBRACE LOOSE, FLOWY STYLES
Flowy tops, maxi-dresses, skirts are key! It helps airing things out 😉 But be careful on a windy day! Haha!!
3. PICK THE PERFECT PAIR OF SHORTS (THAT FLATTER AND FIT!
It’s shorts season, so pick one pair that fits and flatters you and stick with them, and if possible buy them in all colors!! I have some cute ones, but looking for some newer styles, the hunt is on, but in general – cotton, demin, both are good choices!
4. DARE TO BARE YOUR SHOULDERS
Dare to bare—but it doesn’t mean you have to show everything! Strappy dresses, cold-shoulders, off shoulders are all here to stay! If you have the body for it, crop tops can be really cute too!
5. DABBLE IN A NEW HUE
Pick pieces with a serious punch of color like coral, blue or yellow for a fresh, summer look. Pair your summer brights with neutrals or mix and match! The best thing about summer is that it is very forgiving! You can not go wrong with any color and the brighter the better!
6. EXPLORE PRINTS & PATTERNS
Summertime is also the perfect time to explore prints and patterns and often together too!
7. WHITE IS EVERYTHING
When the temperatures rise, nothing looks cooler or more put together than crisp white clothing, be it demin – skirts – dresses or even just sandals!
8. ACCESSORIES ARE KEY
Accessories are everything – not only during the summer, but all year round! In the summer though you have more room to try things out. When the temperatures rise, pull out those necklaces, statement earrings, lightweight scraves, hats and sunglasses! Don’t forget rings and bracelets, and ofcourse nailpolish – that’s a must! And don’t forget handbags and purses – be it a wristlet, tote, crossbody or clutch!
PLEASE try to limit going out and shopping – let online shopping be your go-to this time around. And then too, when the packages arrive, let them stay out for a couple of days and then sanitize eveyrhing before bringing it in and wash everything before wearing it! I am no virus police, but these are the bare minimum things we can do, along with staying home when possible, sanitizing and washing our hands all the time!
And here are some looks from previous summers as for this one till now has been spent in PJs!
Until next time, stay stylish!
