How To Stay Fresh And Classy This Summer
Your most valuable items
1. Your sunglasses!!!! Do not ever forget them… They always give you a
more sophisticated look… Let’s be truthful, even if you wear a garri bag and throw on the right pair of sunglasses and rock it with confidence, you will be amazing. So lets look at the different trending styles in sunglasses this summer..
2. Slip on dress
This should be so easy to put on and/or take off (if you know what I mean *wink*) I mean if you are going to the beach o! Anyways, they can come in maxis or simple short dresses with tiny straps. Mostly patterned with vibrant colours that invoke happiness and fun.
Some various slip on dresses can be seen below…
3. Shorts and light cotton shirts
Shorts can come in either denim, khaki or just regular cotton. I will advise going for plain colours for shorts, in my opinion it’s just more classy. Pair these with a nice white cotton button down shirt with rolled up sleeves or a nice light tee and you’re good to go….
So we don’t want our feet to be sweaty and then producing that very interesting odour that can serve as an insecticide to all the mosquitoes in the room… So let your feet breathe this summer by sporting a very sexy pair of sandals. For a glamorous look, knee high gladiators to a simple above the sole sandal for a demure look..
I personally can never get enough of sandals so I will try to hold myself back and show you just a few…
Now, this depends on where you are heading to exactly…. Like it will be awkward if you wore a straw floppy hat into an indoor event….. So here are some tips on the kinds of hats to wear for certain destinations…
-Straw floppy hats are reserved for outdoor events, so a day to the beach is perfect for them
-Fedora hats, now these babies can be worn at both outdoor and indoor events, so lunch date at a rooftop restaurant or a small fun luncheon with friends at the beach and you will look spot on.
-Baseball hats or snap backs
Please do not pair these with a dress for any reason, don’t ask me why, but its a big fashion no-no…. Now, you can pair these gorgeous pieces with a pair of shorts and a nice cotton top. You will have a trendy yet sensible and practical look. The best part is that these darlings come in varying colours and prints so they can never be boring.
6. Big handbag
Okay, so I have a weakness and its big handbags, you can literally hide your house in there and I love it!! So it’s important to have your big bag with you at all times, you can store your deodorant, light body mist, press powder, lip gloss, plus all our other essentials (ladies you know what’s up ). Different colours and fabric types are available, there’s straw, regular fabric to leather.
7. Sunscreen of course…..
Unless you intend to look like over fried groundnut at the end of summer, I strongly suggest you take your sunscreen application seriously.
Some body lotions come with in bulit sunscreen, so carefully scan your body lotions this summer. If you’re skeptical about changing your regular body products completely, then just buy sunscreen separately and apply on parts of your body that will be exposed to the sun. So your legs, thighs,arms,hands and face should get special attention from the sunscreen.
