Style changes with the seasons, and we are getting ready for the summer season. Generally speaking, this means sundresses, flip flops, and bright colors. Of course, you need to establish your own personal style to help you make the right hair, makeup, and clothes choices. Here are five tips for forming your summer style.
Start From the Top
We are talking about hair, of course! Summer is the perfect time to change up your hair and get a new look that matches your personal summer style. Start by picking the perfect hair color. Most people go lighter for the summer, but it’s also a great opportunity to do something colorful. The hair dye colors best suited for summer include blonde, rose, caramel, pink, and copper. Don’t be afraid to try multiple different colors at once for something different. When picking a color, consider your skin tone and personal style. Pink hair may not work for someone with a more conservative style.
When you pick summer clothing, you want to tell a story with your choices. What is it that you want to say? What do you want people to think when they see you walking down the street? Do you want to appear athletic? Professional? Cool? Fashionable? Sexy? Casual? Alternative? Decide how you want to portray yourself and pick clothes that help you portray yourself in that way. Of course, it is summer so keep things light and breezy. You also want to consider your activity level and desired comfort.
Pick the Right Accessories
Summer is a time for accessories. You need sunglasses and maybe also a hat to keep the sun out of your eyes. Just be sure to pick accessories that match your clothing and personal aesthetic. Stick to a couple of quality pieces instead of stocking up on cheap items that will only break with time.
Summer is the time to cool off in the water, so you need to be on point when you hit the beach or the pool. Start by picking an attractive swimsuit that flatters your body type. You have the option to do a solid color or something with a print on it. Base the rest of your choices, such as the cover-up, on your bathing suit. Since bathing suits are notoriously difficult to buy, go to a store to try them on instead of buying one online.
Sunburn is never stylish, and neither is melanoma. The sun can also cause wrinkles and other skin conditions. It’s important to wear sunscreen whenever you go outside. If you want to get a tan, it’s best to try a spray tan or tanning lotion to protect your skin from the sun. A tan isn’t worth the damage the sun can cause to your skin. If outside for an extended period of time, don’t forget to reapply every couple of hours. Even when the sun isn’t at its brightest, you should still wear sunscreen and makeup with sunscreen in it to keep your skin healthy.
Style is a way for you to express yourself to the world. Some people are bold and bright while others are more casual and understated. Whatever your style, use the summer season as a way to shine with the sun.
