I love a good round up of style tips. Peter, coming at us from Australia and High Style Life, is bringing us an amazing round up of summer styles!
Summer is already here, and this beautiful season of
vacations, sunbathing and relaxing has its fashion demands too. Out of all the
seasons of the year, this one is the best when it comes to experimenting with
fashion and enjoying all its benefits. It’s the age when it’s hot outside, so
you have to be equally hot to survive this season. And how can you do that?
With the variety of summer pieces offered in boutiques and online, it is
sometimes hard to choose. The most important thing you should know is that you
don’t have to buy all the trendy stuff, just few basic summer and beach essentials, and then based on those
pieces you’ll keep upgrading your summer wardrobe. Let’s see what are some of
the summer must-haves?
The maxi essentials
No girl can survive summer without one maxi skirt and one
maxi dress, at the least. These floor grazing beauties are the IT pieces when
it comes to this season of the year. They are great for matching with plain
shirts or colorful one, interesting and fun accessories and wedges, heels or
ballet flats. With some clever accessorizing, you can turn one maxi skirt/dress
into several different outfits for variety of occasions. And that’s the beauty
of it: limitless possibilities and easy of matching. What more can you ask on a
hot summer day?
Well, it’s summer isn’t it? Go out there and have fun. And
can you think of a better way to add some party into your outfit than by
wearing funky footwear. It’s no time for the perfectly stylish black pumps, now
you can wear wedges or heels with different colors, patterns (flowers, polka
dots, stripes) and textures, which can make an ordinary dress stand out. Even
flat sandals can be a great statement giver if you wear them in some bright
Not only these little babies can protect your head, but they can add the perfect
touch of “wow” to your outfit. You can wear them regardless of the occasion.
Just choose one matching your current outfit. Straw fedoras are, for example,
real hits when it comes to street style and they can give that safari feeling
to your clothing combination. And, on the other side, elegant floppy hats are
ideal to combine with maxi dresses.
Showing off those
Yep, there’s no time like summer to show off some skin. And
what better way on doing that than with the summer lovin’ skirts and shorts?
Luckily, the range of designer skirts and shorts is so
wide, that there is a skirt and shorts for every body shape out there.
Lace shorts, this age not too short as
the previous one and A-line skirts are the pieces for almost every occasion,
expect dinner in an elegant restaurant of course.
Jumpsuit has made its way to summer essentials
quite unexpected. Really, no one expected it will become such hit. But what’s
there not to expect? It’s a shirt and pants all in one. It’s body flattering
and they come in various patterns, colors and materials. It can be your go-to
choice for walk in the park, evening out or even a beach.
Enjoy your summer essentials and rock them on the ordinary
people catwalks: clubs, beaches, parks, restaurants.
