Don a flattering sun hat for a summer-inspired vibe.
Hat is the perfect accessory for summer as it gives your face some cover from the sun while keeping your looks stylish. Like Alexandra, opt for a flattering hat that frames your face like fedora or floppy one that can be universally flattering. If you’re heading to a ballpark or going to some sporty adventures, a baseball cap is perfect for you. The key is choosing for brim with that works best for your face as too wide will make your face disproportionally smaller and vice versa.
Opt for a breezy and chic sundress.
Nothing beats having a breezy and chic sundress in the scorching heat of summer. Like Alexandra, you may opt for a printed dress with floral, tropical, and colorful motifs to add some playful vibe to your summer looks. Lace dresses can also be perfect for weekend trips as long as they’re simple without too many embellishments. Just resort to summer fabrics like cotton, rayon, lace, chiffon and such that will give you a fresh and stylish look.
Go for a nautical-chic style.
Nautical chic style is one of the best looks you can have for summer, so resort to your Breton striped tees, nautical striped dresses, espadrilles, fedora hats, sailor caps, as well as the color combinations of navy, red, and white.
