The summer season, as much as I love it, takes quite a toll on one’s skin and body. From unsightly tan lines to sweating and more, the heat can leave our glamorous selves in quite a state.
But there’s no need to worry; there are few things that can’t be fixed in the fashion world. Summer woes can be overcome with some intelligent accessorizing and though you’ll still feel the burn (not in the good calorie-shedding way), at least you’ll be looking your best!
In keeping with this spirit, these should be your go-to accessories this season:
Hats, Caps and Visors
Oooh! Now who doesn’t wish there was a suitable occasion to rock some fancy head-wear. Wellladies, this is the time and everywhere sunny is the place. As long as you are going to be outdoors, hats, caps and visors will be great accessories – shading your face from the sun and giving your outfit a bold, quirky edge. Pretty, dainty hats would be suitable for official or formal events while caps are best for casual outings. Visors would be great as part of sportswear, but if you are confident and experimental, they’ll would go with just about any outfit.
Clips and Headbands
Tame your lovely locks and prevent facial sweating by putting some clips and headbands to good use. Colourful clutchers, cutesy hair-bands and funky scrunchies will hold your hair in place and keep it away from your neck region. Bobby pins in vibrant shades, neon and patterns clips and pretty headbands will keep the tresses in front in check. So wear them hair accessories when you step out – remain cool and calm as the warm wind assaults you.
Well, this is a little too obvious but needed to be included – just out of respect. Sunglasses are the single, most vital element of summer accessorizing and every dame worth her makeup has to have a couple of them. This season, retro shades have been trending high so cat-eyes and round shades are the way to go. However, if you’re a classicist and not-too-flashy, the wayfarers, aviators and bug-eyes are perfect for you.
Ever wondered when you’ll be able to wear that expensive, rubber-strap watch you bought on impulse? Or have been wanting to buy for a while? Summer is time to whip such watches out and strut about in complete comfort. Sweat resistant and very trendy, sports watches will not chafe the skin or cause as much sweating as your regular leather watch does.
Feel like it’s too hot to wear any jewellery? Or worse yet, have a tendency to develop rashes on wearing neckpieces and rings? Don’t be sad, anklets are your solution. Wear delicate ankle-bracelets on either both or one of your feet to make quite a style statement while also avoiding any discomfort. They look wonderful and feel fine – what more could you want, in this blazing summer season?
In terms of handbags, totes are summer’s best friend. Huge enough to fit in all the season’s essentials, these bulky, slouchy wonders are a life saver. From your sunscreen, water bottle, sunglasses, wet wipes and body mist to makeup, hairbrushes and more – it’ll all fit in without any fuss. So next time you go out in the heat, take out your trusty tote and carry your world around.
When it’s this hot outside, a diva’s got to have her tools ready. Stock up on these accessories and have a wonderful summer!
