Summer Essentials!

Posted on: June 16, 2008

Greetings Everyone,

Summer is here so enjoy the warm weather in style! So what is on the list of summertime fashion essentials this year? Let’s start with bathing suits. Should you go with two-piece bikinis or a one piece cut-out? Both are in style, so the key is picking a suit you will be comfortable in. Shorts, capris, and skirts are all must-haves during the scorching hot summer days. For trips to the pool and the beach, you’ll need some water-friendly shoes and beach cover-ups. Find a pair of neutral flip-flops that go with all outfits or stock up on flip-flops of all colors! Gladiator sandals are all the rage this season, so stash your sneakers away and give your toes some sun! Fun accessories such as jeweled hair clips, lightweight scarves, and bright printed bags are also fun summertime favorites. Dress in colorful tees, tanks, and sheer shirts to keep cool while you sport the latest trends.

Fashion is fun, but skin and health products are essential. It’s important to select the best sunscreens, moisturizers, and hair care available. Protect your skin from harmful UVA rays by investing in a quality sunscreen or facial moisturizer with SPF 15 or higher.

The summer sun combined with humidity can really harm your hair – causing split ends and dry, brittle hair. To minimize the damage, try using less heat on your hair. Let your hair air dry in the summer sun instead of blow drying it and cut down the amount of times you break out your flat or curling irons to style your hair. Invest in hair care products that replenish and add moisture back to your strands.

So after you’ve dressed to impress and you’re on your way out the door, don’t forget to pack your summer essentials!

Keep cool in style,
