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.

Summer is here, is your wardrobe ready?

As the snow thaws and everyone begins to look toward summer, it’s easy to forget about the contents of one’s closet. For months now you’ve been bundled up against the elements, layering clothes and longing for the sun. You’re tired of the cold months stretching on seemingly without end, and now that the end is finally in sight it’s easy to get excited. Summer time is always a fun time.

As you plan summer trips and outdoor excursions, don’t forget that you need to dress for the weather. Flowing fabrics, shorter hemlines and colourful prints are hitting the shops as the last of the frost disappears and the sun starts to stay out longer.

Summer time is a great excuse to go shopping and pick up summer clothes in new and updated prints, colors and materials. Keep yourself cool and comfortable this summer with these essential summer staples.

 

Don’t skip on the white

White clothes are immensely popular in the summer, as they keep you cool while offering a lot of versatility. White tanks and tees, for example, pair very well with just about any skirt, short or pant in your closet.

Swap out your boots for some sweet sandals

Sweaty feet are no fun, so cramming your tootsies into a stifling pair of boots all summer long might have you feeling a bit grouchy. Opt instead for a pair of sandalsto suit your style. Straps, heels, clasps and colorful accents make it easy to find a pair (or three) that you’ll adore all summer long.

 

Replace your miniskirts with midi skirts

There is certainly a time and place for leg-baring minis, but midi skirts offer a bit more coverage that makes them a perfect summer staple for any occasion. From the boardroom to brunch and beyond, midi skirts will keep you cool and confident as you strut around in effortless style.

 

Don’t ditch the denim

Denim shortshave been parts of the iconic summer look for decades because they are ultra-comfortable and can be dressed up or down to suit your style needs. A white tee on top makes for a great casual look, while a button-up blouse can dial the style up a notch for those fun summer outings with friends.

 

Combine comfort and style with a maxi dress

Tight clothes aren’t the most comfortable on the hottest days of the year. A maxi dress offers you salvation from the discomfort with all of the coverage that you need to feel confident wherever you go. Long, flowing materials keep things breezy in a slew of colors and patterns that are sure to please.

 

Upgrade your sunglass game

The perfect pair of shades is the best and easiest way to finish off any summer look. Practicality and style mesh effortlessly in some beautiful sunglass frames these days, so there’s a frame for every day of the week!

 

Add accessories

Accessories like rings and bracelets are very important to turn on the style. A pave diamond ring on your finger can enhance the beauty of your well-manicured hand. A necklace will make your neck strikingly beautiful. So choose your accessories properly.

Summer is all about comfort, but it’s easier than ever before to stay comfy while rocking impeccable, effortless style!

What shoes to choose for a summery day date to the beach

Summery days with the warm breeze kissing the face is a blessing that we want to have 365 days a year in our lives. Sadly, our demographics don’t allow so. After being catapulted by the grim winters and autumn for a major chunk of the year, summer truly is the time to rejoice and get our bikinis out. The perfect weather makes it the best time to go to the beach, enjoy some chilled margaritas with the girlies and lie as the salt water and cool breeze calm our senses.

The idea of going to a beach in pitch winters is a foolish one. So a person who loves the sea looks forward to the summer and spring season, for a beach holiday to let the hair down. And it’s pretty worth it, too. The beach has this eerie sense of calm about it and soothes the soul of the most mentally wounded people. There’s not one reason why a person shouldn’t be visiting the beach when the time is right in the year.

Besides, this is time, when women can truly flaunt their skin and curves without getting a chill to their bones! The colourful bikinis come out, the skimpy bathing suits are flaunted and beautiful legs make a foray into the world. The beach is such a wonderful place to be!

Beach fashion for the feet

The only part about beaches that haunt women is the amount of sand that sticks to your body. Especially when it gets to all parts of footwear; no matter what you wear on your feet. While people may walk barefoot on the sand, it’s not advisable as shells or little crabs may give your feet the worst time.
So, here are the best types of footwear you could be wearing on your trip to the beach –

 

1. Flip-flops

A no-brainer, really; flip-flops are your best bet. They are made of rubber and no amount of sand or water will affect their longevity. One tap along each other and all the sand come off of them. Besides, the vibrant and haute colours in flip flops will make you choose more than one!

 

2. Gladiator flats

These are the best, if you are going to be wearing a bikini or a short swimsuit. It will not only make walking in the sand comfortable, but will also give your bare legs a dimension. And you can always choose the length of the gladiator flat sandal as per your choice.

 

3. Tie-leg sandals

Again, if you are going to be flaunting those legs on the beach, give your legs an element to flaunt too. The tie-leg flat sandals are available in so many types; plain Jane, tasselled sandals and even the fringed ones; there’s a lot to choose from.

 

4. Crocs

Crocs and beaches go hand-in-hand. If you have nothing in your closet, a pair of crocs will let you survive. These let your feet breathe and are super comfortable. As the Crocs  strikes your feet, they will not stick to your skin and will give you an easy time.

 

5. Slip ons or slide ons

Given the fact, that you are going to remove your footwear a lot of times and then wear it again, you need something that is easy to wear and not takes much time to come off. For this purpose, slip ons and slide on are best. They come in so many styles; you can choose from the mini wedge or the light wedge, there’s the double strap or the single strap or even the cross over strap!
