One of the most exciting time of the year, when it comes to fashion, is summer. During these months, skin-baring is the way to go. This is also the perfect time to get on and be experimental with all the new trends. However, you have to remember that there are certain ‘rules’ that we have to follow when it comes to dressing up and while I have always encouraged breaking a few rules to broaden your sense of style, I think some rules are actually worth following. Here are some of the do’s and don’ts of summer fashion that you’ll want to keep in mind.
- DON’T BE AFRAID TO SHOW SOME SKIN – summer IS the time to show some skin so don’t shy away from sexier skin-baring pieces. If you’re overwhelmed by these pieces, you can always start small. A cut-out detailed top, ripped jeans – these are just some of the pieces you can start off with.
- DO WEAR BRIGHTER COLORS MORE – bright and vibrant colors are what fashionistas live for during the summer season. If you’ve been waiting for the perfect time to say goodbye to the dark and dull colors from the past seasons, there’s no better time than now.
- DON’T WAIT UNTIL MEMORIAL DAY TO WEAR WHITE – gone are the days when your all white outfits were strictly reserved for Memorial Day weekends. Today, you’re free to wear white whenever you like so go ahead and bust out that gorgeous white ensemble now and maybe even craft up another set or two of pretty white outfits.
- DO STOCK UP ON THE CLASSICS – a plain white shirt, a classic pair of jeans, black pumps, a denim jacket – these are just some of the basic classic pieces that you should never be without, no matter what the season is. Stock up on the classics and make sure you have a few at your disposal at all times. These pieces make for a great base for a chic outfit.
- DON’T STOP LAYERING – layering is not just a styling trick you can use during the colder months of fall and winter. You can also do this during spring and summer as well. The secret to pulling this off successfully without sacrificing comfort is to choose lighter pieces to work with. It’s also important to limit your layers to make sure your outfit remains cool and comfy.
