Smart styling tips to elevate your summer look
Wear light-colored clothing
It is finally time to say goodbye to all the dark and boring clothing you had to wear all winter long. For the summer, welcome the light colors and white dresses. Switch the sweaters for button-down shirts, the jeans for denim shorts, and the knitted tunics for flirting dresses. Lighter-colored clothing reflects rather than absorbs the sun’s rays, so they will keep you cool even when the temperatures rise high.
Choose sleeveless or loose sleeves
One way to elevate your summer look is to choose clothing that provides as much airflow as possible. This doesn’t mean that you need to go fully strapless. Instead, you can consider some sleeveless camis or off-shoulder or puff-sleeve blouses and dresses. The short-sleeved button-up is also a perfect choice for the summer heat.
Avoid wearing tight clothing
Tight, fitting clothing may make your body look sexy, but is definitely not the best choice for a comfortable summer look. Try to stay away from anything that is too tight when the temperatures start to rise. Instead, opt for loose-fitting pieces that will keep you cool in the summer. Go for cropped, wide-leg pants, loose shirts, oversized blouses, and of course, don’t forget the dresses and skirts. They are the best bet when it comes to clothing that allows your body to breathe.
Upgrade your athleisure
When it comes to creating some sporty and casual summer look, you can always opt for clothes made of technical fabrics. They are typically moisture-wicking, but their only disadvantage is that they are also very tight, which, as we mentioned before is not always a great option for summer. So, if you are a fan of athleisure, then you can easily swap your black leggings and sweatshirt for colorful bike shorts and tank tops. Crop tops are also a smart choice. You can also find so many interesting and chic ways to wear your bike shorts as a fashionista. Do you remember the trend from years ago? It is time to repeat it again.
Choose breathable fabrics
This is one of the most important things to consider in mind when shopping for summer clothing. You may not notice the difference between breathable fabrics and fabrics that trap moisture during other seasons, but during summer you will certainly notice it. Synthetics usually are not breathable, so you rather avoid clothes made of this kind of fabric. Instead, you should opt for clothes that are 100 percent linen, cotton, or silk. Let’s mention the fact that natural fabrics also look better on your body making your summer look absolutely stunning.
Jeans are timeless! But they are definitely not that piece of clothing that is the most appropriate for your summer look. Denim is one of the heaviest fabrics ever. Stretch or skinny jeans may look stunning on you, but you will find them too warm for your summer style. They aren’t the most comfortable piece to wear during the summer heat, so avoid wearing them. Switch them for lightweight cotton or linen pants. Or, denim shorts. Wide-leg pants or even wide-legs jeans are also a smart choice for summer warmness. They allow some air circulation. Dresses and skirts are however the best choices!
Rely on dresses
Dresses are the summer essentials any woman should have in her wardrobe. They are not just for special occasions. You can choose comfy summer dresses and wear them all summer long. There is definitely not an easier option for days when you “have nothing to wear”. Bring out your midi dresses, rompers, or maxi skirts. For a more Boho style summer look opt for sleeveless maxi dresses or long skirts. If mini dresses and skirts are your things, rock them this summer.
