Shopping for skirts and dresses this summer

Summer fashion features a lot of skirts and dresses because they are dead comfy. With the heat wave, the last thing I want to have on is a pair of jeans. You will easily catch me rocking skirts and dresses because they are easiest pieces to wear and style in summer. It is important to dress for your shape. I always have my body shape in mind when shopping for clothing and accessories. As a petite lady, the last thing I need is for clothing to swallow my little frame up! Which is why I go shopping for skirts and dresses that would work with my body shape.

The beauty about skirts and dresses is that they usually tend to suit most body shapes, depending on the style you opt for. If you plan on doing some summer shopping this season, and you have skirts and dresses on your shopping list, here are some tips you may find useful.

 

Get pretty summer dresses

Shop around for summer dresses that can be styled for daytime and nighttime. Floral is timeless, so opt for floral dresses if possible.

 

Go for pieces that show off your best parts

If you have amazing long legs, go for mini dresses that would show they off. Buying dresses with classic lines is a smart way to go about this. If you are after showing off some cleavage and shoulders, go for halter-neck dresses, as they would do the work. It is important to buy clothing that will always show your case your best features.

 

Remember the shirt dress

Having a shirt dress is an essential this summer. I have quite a few in my wardrobe now and I love them. They are dead easy to style and are very comfy to wear this summer. I like the fact that they are multi-tasking pieces. They can be work from season to season with different accessories. They are smart enough to be worn to work and laidback enough for weekends and vacations. I think shirt dresses are a great wardrobe investment. The trick for the shirt dress is to keep it fitted and in subtle colours.

Don’t forget the skirts

I like having skirts in my wardrobe. I wear them a lot in the summer months. The pencil skirt is my favourite. I think it suits my bodyshape so I always go for skirts in that shape. Skirts are very easy to style up and down. A simple top/shirt can be worn with a skirt for a daytime look, and a shimmery sleeveless top for a nighttime look.

 

How is your summer wardrobe looking? Are you a fan of skirts and dresses in the summer months?

Getting Ready for Your Vacation: Important Tips to Look Your Best

If you are planning your first getaway this year, you might want to get ready for traveling in style and looking your best. From going holiday shopping  – which is the most enjoyable part of the preparations – to choosing your outfits for the weather and hotel, there are several steps you need to take to impress your traveling companions and whoever you will meet while enjoying the sunshine. Below you will find a few tips on how to make the most out of your vacation preparations.

 

Getting Ready for Your Vacation: Important Tips to Look Your Best image

 

Choose a Funky Hairstyle

If it is time to change your color and style, you should visit your hair salon before you travel and talk to your stylist about the latest trends. You might want to find a hairstyle that is easy to manage, even if you are in and out the pool all the time. The good news is that there are several ways of styling a pixie cut or a simple bob, so you can look different every day, depending on your mood and the occasion.  

 

Pick and Mix

When going shopping for your vacation, you will have to find clothes you can mix instead of planning each outfit. Accidents can happen, and you things don’t always go according to plan. The good news is that accessories take up less space than clothing items. A good way of saving space in your luggage is adding funky scarves, belts, hats, and headbands that can help you create a unique look every time. You might want to pack a few colorful cardigans to throw over your summer dress, and you will have a new look. Add costume jewelry, earrings, and create a beach dress of a large colorful scarf.

 

Choose Comfortable Shoes

While you might be thinking that you will wear your sandals and heels all the time while on vacation, you will not feel comfortable in the heat. You should get a walking shoe or sandal for visiting the beach, or you will end up with painful blisters. The key is combining pretty with comfy when you go on a vacation. You can find comfortable and adorable sandals that suit shorts and short dresses alike to take you on vacation if you do your research.

Check Your Bag Allowance

To avoid disappointments and having to rearrange your clothes last minute, it is important that you check your bag allowance before you start packing. You might spend hours selecting the different outfits that create the perfect match, but if you don’t have enough space, you will need to start again. Plan your vacation clothing carefully, and add an extra outfit just in case you get invited somewhere elegant, such as a five-star restaurant or a premiere of a theater performance.

 

Get Some Tan

Before you hit the beach, it is important to build up some tan. If you can catch some sun rays at home, make the most out of the opportunity. In case the sun is still hiding, you should use self-tanning creams or lotions, maybe pay a visit to your local solarium. This way you will look less “out of place” and can see how your newly purchased vacation clothes look on you when you have a bit of tan. At the same time, by sunbathing before your vacation, you can avoid sunburn during your stay.

 

Travel Hair Styling Kit

If you love swimming in the sea and the pool, it is important that you can restore order after. A small travel hair styling kit that includes a hair dryer, a hair iron, curlers, and other accessories can fit in a small space in your bag, and save you from embarrassing hair days after spending a few hours on the beach. Pack some pins and hair clips, so you can simply tie your hair back when it is not looking its best.

 

Permanent Makeup

If you want to spend more time outdoors and in the water, and less fixing your makeup, a permanent solution might be a good option for you. You can get your permanent makeup completed a few weeks before your vacation, and this means you don’t have to worry about trying to use the small mirror to apply your eyeliner every morning, or getting your makeup smudged in the heat or in the water.

 

Whether you are a regular vacationer, or this is your first time in the year, get ready to impress people with your style. Work smarter and not harder on your looks. Pack less clothes and more accessories. Get your miniature hair styling kit in the bag, and let the fun begin.
