Start With The Basics
Dressing for summer fashion begins with the basics. You need classic wardrobe staples to set the tone for your outfits and to give you a foundation to work with for every look you create. Start by gathering a collection of jean shorts, solid-colored tee shirts, tank tops, and summer essentials for footwear options like sneakers, flip-flops, and sandals. Show off your favorite kicks and get a collection of go-to footwear like tennis shoes, high-tops, and name-brand sneakers. Ankle-length socks are in and will look great with any sneaker you’re considering.
Dress For Success
After you’ve compiled your basics, grab a few wildcard items you’ll want to set aside for summer parties and gatherings. Dress for success with cocktail dresses, women’s slacks, flowy blouses, and other formal summer attire. Look for lightweight fabrics to create your formal looks so that you can stay cool despite the summer heat. Formal wear tends to be more elaborate in fabric and detail, so looking for items that allow for style without compromising your temperature comfort is essential. As a rule of thumb, scan tags for cotton fabrics included in your items as an easy way to determine if a piece of clothing will feel breathable or not.
Go Bold With Color
This summer, go bold with color combinations. From outfits in bright tones like teal and aqua to all-in-one stylings such as an all-red jumpsuit, these are all in style. Channel your warrior within and see which colors bring out your skin tone and natural beauty and stick with those options.
