6 “Dos” For Your Summer Wardrobe
Summer is a time for fun, relaxation and breaking out your summer wardrobe to enjoy the season to the fullest. If you want to have the best summer wardrobe possible this year, consider the following 6 “dos” that you should definitely keep in mind when buying and curating your wardrobe for the upcoming summer season.
Do: Stick to natural materials
Summertime brings with it hotter and usually muggier weather, so you’ll want to stick to materials that are going to keep you as cool as possible. Natural materials, such as 100% cotton, linen and bamboo are best for the summertime. They don’t absorb as much heat and will help keep you cool by wicking sweat away from your skin rather than absorbing it.
Do: Buy flowing, loose pieces for hot days
Make sure you have some loose, flowing wardrobe pieces that you can wear on particularly hot days. A nice loose skirt will help you feel much cooler on a hot day than snug pants, after all! Opt for flowing pieces in lighter colors as well, such as whites, light pastels, and so on, for maximum coolness.
Do: Pair vibrant colors with neutral shades
If you’re looking for a fresh summer wardrobe that will have you looking dazzling all season long, try to pair some vibrant colors with neutral shades. This will give your wardrobe a “pop!” that will have you stand out, whether you’re at work, shopping, or taking a walk on the beach. For instance, pairing a vibrant red dress with a light white bolero can look very striking.
Do: Buy stylish jeans or pants to pair with summer tops
You don’t need to limit yourself to skirts and dresses during the summer! You can mix and match your wardrobe with a variety of bottoms, including long and short skirts, pants, jeans, and shorts. If you want to go for a casual summer look that doesn’t involve skirts, pair a flowing summer top with a pair of stylish jeans or pants. If the pants or jeans are darker, opt for a lighter top, and vice versa. This will create a unique contrast in your outfit.
Do: Invest in at least one pair of high quality sunglasses
The sun is—of course—going to be around a lot more during the summer, and you must remember to protect your eyes. However, there’s no reason why your protective eyewear can’t be stylish! You should invest in at least one pair of high quality stylish sunglasses that you can wear throughout the summer. If you can only buy one high quality pair, make sure it’s a pair that will work well with most of the items in your wardrobe.
Do: Purchase accessories to mix and match with your outfits
Summertime is the perfect time to don plenty of accessories, so you can make the most out of them by purchasing accessories which can be easily mixed and matched. Belts, hats, and light scarves are ideal for this purpose.
With the above summer “dos” in mind, your summer wardrobe will be better than ever this year!
