If you’re looking for inspiration to make your summer style more exciting, or simply make it look cool to beat the heat with style, keep on reading to scoop some of her tricks.
- Incorporate fruity and juicy colors to your style.
Summer if one of the most colorful seasons of the year, so it’s time for bright colors and cheery hues. Like Christine, show off your maxi dresses in the bold shades of red, yellow, hot pink, orange, and green to make your summer style more alive. If you’re not a fan of wearing colors, simply start by going for a cobalt blue or ruby red dress on your next garden party. Jewel tones are bright yet elegant that may inspire you to look cool this summer season.
- Mix sporty pieces with chic ensembles.
Mixing your sporty pieces with chic ones may be common, but summer never looks better with overalls, joggers, and denim shorts. Like Christine, think of wearing your jogger pants with a tank top and a nude pair of pumps to make your street style a bit chic yet effortless. Also, spice up your summer looks by incorporating sneakers with your nautical-chic outfit like Christine did.
- Embrace the shades of nude and peach.
Muted yet elegant, nude and peach are some of the most challenging shades to wear. Just pick the flattering shade that works best on your skin tone as going too light will make you look tanned and going for the same shade of your skin can sometimes make you look naked. So, pick a voluminous fabric especially on wearing the shade on your top and trousers.
- Wear expressive and summer-inspired prints.
Skip the basic prints and go for more expressive ones that will showcase your playful personality this season. Like Christine, you may think of an orange fruit-print blouse teamed with white jeans, or a camouflage print blazer that will add some edge to your street looks. Colorful floral prints will make your style look more playful while pastel ones make it look more romantic.
- Go breezy and chic on your outfits.
Summer is the perfect time to show some skin. So, opt for breezy styles that will make you look sexy at the same time weather-appropriate. Like Christine, opt for a backless jumpsuit that will keep your summer looks sexy and feminine, or an off-shoulder top teamed with jeans to make your casual style a bit chic. Distressed jeans with rips and holes can be a trendy and functional way to beat the heat, as well as lace-up blouses and cold shoulder dresses. Indeed, summer can be more fun when you style your outfits in effortlessly cool ways.
