Whether it’s jumping in the pool or relaxing in the park, there’s something for everyone to enjoy in the blissful summer months. Sunscreen, bare feet, and beaches are just a few of the terms that we associate with summer. But what else do we think of when the heat rolls around? That’s right—flip-flops, denim shorts, and sunhats.
When it comes to the perfect summer style, comfort is key. The last thing you want is to be constantly adjusting an itchy top under the sweltering heat of the sun. There are many different types of summery looks you may want to incorporate into your wardrobe, but let’s take a look at just a few.
A Day at the Beach
Whether you’ll be itching to jump in the water or you’re cool to just chill on the sand, a loose fitting sundress will keep you cute and comfortable. Look for a sundress with breathable material and a comfortable fit. A sundress is a great way to experiment with colors and patterns, so don’t be afraid to try something new! Wear it over your swimsuit for maximum efficiency, or layer it on top of a graphic tee for an unexpected twist. To complete the look, slip on a strappy pair of gladiator sandals and grab your favorite aviators. A floppy straw hat will shield you from the sun and add a touch of bohemian chic.
Sure, denim shorts are good for a lot of things. But the next time you need to make a run for some groceries or that much needed ice coffee, you may want to consider throwing on a pair of plaid canvas shorts. These shorts are comfy and breathable, meaning you won’t be melting as you hurry from one air-conditioned store to the next. Throw on a bright polo for a cool preppy look or add a loose, graphic tee for a more relaxed style. Finish the style with large shades and wedged sneakers.
A Night Out
The sun has gone done but the night has just begun. Whether you’re going out for some appetizers with the girls or on a much anticipated movie date, you’ll definitely be glad you chose a skirt. A bouncy little number that hits just above the knees is perfect when paired with a sequined top and a worn jean jacket. Add pumps and some jewelry and you’ll be ready for the town. Or, if you’d prefer something that not only looks effortless but actually is, throw on a maxi skirt. With its fabric that flows and patterns that pop, a maxi skirt is perfectly relaxed when paired with a comfy cardigan and the right accessories. To spice things up, add a pair of heels with texture, like rope or bead accents.
Summer doesn’t last forever. Throughout the media it’s been portrayed as a season that can be truly life-changing. A fleeting yet beautiful season, it’s full of memories, change, and fun. You’ll want to look your best as you capture every moment, so wear your confidence proudly. It’s certainly not hard to do when you look as stylish as you will!
