If you haven’t started planning out your summer wardrobe a couple of weeks ago when we were introduced to a bit warmer weather, now it’s definitely high time you did that. Not only will you be traveling to exotic destinations in the blink of an eye, it’s also quite important to have everything ready once the scorching heat hits your city (you won’t be going out in your winter/spring clothes, will you?). If you spent hours thinking what the heck is different in the spring and summer wardrobe, you’re at a right place, as we will introduce the 5 ways to have the summer wardrobe of your dreams. Everything you need is right here, so take a look:
1. Your skin should be your best friend
Before we start talking about the actual wardrobe and the clothes you will be wearing, it’s very important to make sure to follow the proper skin care routine. Summer is such a tricky season concerning this, as the skin tends to receive a lot of sun and UV rays, which can have catastrophic results if not taken care of properly. That is why having all the summer essentials on your bathroom stall is your main priority. Without competition, the most important is a good sunscreen as you definitely want to protect your skin from burning and aging, especially in the summertime.
Since you will probably be wearing something sleeveless and shorts or skirts, make sure to apply the sunscreen to all the visible parts of your body, not just your face. Other essentials that you need to have in your bag are cooling mists (these are life-savers let me tell you that!), lip balms to make your lips more beautiful and waterproof makeup as you don’t want your mascara smudged on your face due to sweat.
2. The daily basics
When we say “daily basics” we refer to all those garments that you will be wearing almost every day. These, first of all, include tees, and if you really want to be fashionable and be able to match your t-shirt with practically everything, have as many plain white ones as you can. Of course, you can also choose a tee with a quote or a logo, especially the latter one as logomania is one of the biggest trends right now.
Furthermore, invest in good skirts and shorts, but make sure they are comfortable as you’ll want to wear these during the whole day. Finally, you can always try to find good summer footwear for everyday use, meaning that it has to be pretty and comfortable (blisters in the summertime are awful).
3. How romantic are you?
Summer is the season of love, so you’ll probably go on several dinner dates or sunset walks. That is why having something light but still pretty is very necessary. The imperative is to have at least one beautiful and trendy playsuit that you will wear during the prettiest summer nights so that you feel very special. Apart from that, make sure to have a lot of dresses, because you want to accentuate your figure and femininity. There is a myriad of choices to choose from, so go ahead and go crazy! Apart from that, you can also have a couple of shirts and pants that you will wear whenever you feel a bit more corporate. That can also be sexy during summertime, and it’s always good to have your wardrobe diverse.
4. Follow the trends
As other clothes are concerned, you simply have to follow all the latest trends, if you want to have the most fashionable everyday summer wardrobe, of course. First of all, go with pastel colors this season – it will keep you cool during the hot days, and there are many casual and elegant looks to try. You can choose ultra violet, pink, yellow, green, blue and red, and if you choose all the same hues, you can try color-blocking, again one of the most popular trends of 2018.
5. The small things
Now let’s focus on the most fun part of the closet – the accessories. For this summer, make sure to have straw hats and bags as this is a trend that will be huge this year, both in the city and on the beach. Moreover, don’t forget to have a good pair of shades that are both high quality (as this is something that you need to pay special attention to while buying sunglasses) and fashionable. Go crazy with minimalistic or industrial jewelry and there you go!
Powering up your wardrobe shouldn’t be a chore, but rather a thing you can’t wait to do. Just make sure to have all the things we mentioned, and we promise you – you will have the best and most fashionable wardrobe of all the people you know!
