If wearing summer dresses on the beach and teaming your crop top with denim shorts sound basic, you may need some inspiration to add some unexpected twist to your style. We challenge you to step a little outside of your comfort zone this season and venture into accessories, prints, sexy-details and colors unknown. To show you exactly what we mean, keep on reading for our 5 tricks to get non-basic looks this summer, so you’ll get a memorable style regardless of your outdoor activities and beach trips with friends.
- Wear avant-garde accessories on the beach.
If you think avant-garde accessories are only for special occasions like Fashion Weeks and cocktail parties, think again as you can also wear them on your beach outfits. Whether you wear a snake print swimsuit or a mesh maxi dress on the beach, avant-garde accessories will make your beach looks stunning and glamorous. Just make sure they’re not pricey enough so that you wouldn’t ruin your vacation just in case you’ve lost them in the waters.
- Take the cut-out styles to the next level.
If laser-cut dresses sound basic, think of going for wrap style dresses or jumpsuits that can be worn in multiple ways. Also, go for exaggerated cuts and sexy silhouettes that will make you looks breezy and sexy in the scorching heat this summer. If you think knit dresses are only for the winter season, think again as you may alter them to create a cut-out dress for summer. Like street style star Christine Centenera, think of a black dress that will look sexy yet season-appropriate that can take you from casual to formal occasions.
- Let your summer hats and sunglasses steal the show.
Since hats and sunglasses are summer accessories, let them steal the show by going bright on their colors or going exaggerated on their scales. If you used to wearing wide-brimmed hats, but haven’t tried wearing those hats wider than your shoulders, maybe it’s time to try them now. This way, you’ll add some playful vibe to your sexy-chic swimwear and will make your summer style unique.
- Be unexpectedly sexy on your summer looks.
Whether you wish to wear a sexy cut-out swimsuit or a lace-up dress, looking sexy this summer season is a great way to show off what you’ve got. Just be mindful of the setting and avoid going provocative on formal occasions like weddings, office meetings, and church meetings.
- Resort to graphic prints.
Floral prints and stripes are quite expected this summer, so think of going a bit non-basic by resorting to graphic prints. Since summer is all about looking chic and breezy, think of going for maxi dresses with unique prints like a Star Wars-inspired character or any fictional character you love. This way, you’ll add some flair and unexpected looks this summer and you’ll stand out in the crowd of fashionable women resorting to usual stripes and floral prints.
