This summer may not bring the usual summer outings like a weekend trip to the cottage, or a summer vacation at your favourite Caribbean island. That doesn’t mean you can’t make it a summer to remember. There are still plenty of indoor and outdoor activities like patio barbeques and walks along the boardwalk that will help us enjoy the season. A summer wardrobe always helps. “When you look good you feel good”, is a popular saying for a reason. This summer let’s dress the part and keep up with the latest to ensure we look good and feel even better.
A typical fashion tendency is to make something old feel new. Which explains why bandana styles are back. Instead of wearing it on your head, sport the pattern on your clothes. There is a wave of bandana patchwork prints surfacing this summer. The prints work for any gender and can be worn on shirts or pants. A great look for guys would be a blue bandana print shirt with a pair of white jeans or paired with a basic navy sports coat.
A good pair of denim jeans goes a long way. We all have that go-to pair that looks and feels good. This summer step outside of your comfort zone. If you don’t have one already, try embracing a neutral, or white pair of jeans. You will find it goes with almost everything.
Denim jackets are perfect for those cooler summer days. The older the jacket the better the look. Denim jackets can be worn with a dress, t-shirt or a button up.
Did you have to cancel your plans to vacation at your favourite tropical destination? Or are you the type of person that likes to ditch the shoes for footwear that gives you room to wiggle your toes? This summer start wearing braided flip flops or sandals. A brown or black pair made using faux leather is sleek, comfortable but will also channel those island vibes.
Shorts! Shorts! Shorts! Are a must every summer. Nothing says summer look like rocking a pair of shorts and sandals. Any shorts will make for a summer look. Whether you go for a California boarder short look, denim shorts, or a cotton pair, try to get vibrant colour like teal, aqua or hot pink.
A pair of shades goes a long way. Not only do sunglasses look good, but they make us feel cooler than Tom Cruise in Top Gun. Shades come in all shapes and styles. Everyone’s face structure is unique. Instead of looking for a specific style like aviators, why not try a few out and make sure they are comfortable and look good. Whether you go for a dark or neutral colour, you’ll find a good pair of shades go with almost every outfit.
