Summer is just around the corner, so it’s time to ditch spring layering and chunky boots for airy dresses, teeny swimsuits and funky footwear for every summer occasion.
A holiday in the sun is incomplete without some Tropicana tanning oil and a good book. But, before you get to your holiday getaway, make sure you’re packing light but right. Summer is all about having fun so make sure you are experimenting with different styles and are always on trend.
Beach essentials: a very chic straw hat like this one from H&M (just £12!), a great pair of shades and a new and funky swimsuit that will make you feel and look great. Australian swimwear brand ‘Triangl’ is currently the most coveted swimsuit brand and you can get this bikini in hot pink, electric orange or bright turquoise for about £50 on Triangl.com. Just add water. Plus, these sunnies from Minkpink have an iridescent mirrored lens and cat-eye shape, combining two trends in one. Get them on ASOS for just £24.50 – they’re on sale, so get them while you can!
This summer, whether you’re in the Bahamas, the South of France or Brighton, you’ll want to pair your hot shorts with a loose camisole and stylish sandals like these Next leopard sandals which you can snag for just £22 – and wear all summer. Otherwise, you can opt for these super-cute dotted espadrilles in baby blue which look great unexpected with slim-fit trousers and an open-back lace top for a casual but chic summer night out. Next’s T-Bar sandals come in endless colours and are the perfect accompaniment to any sexy outfit if you’re going out clubbing or even with a baby-doll dress for a summer garden party.
As always, make-up is best kept to a minimum with BB cream to lightly cover up any blemishes and some bronzer for that perfect summer glow. Gold, tan, turquoise and greens are the go-to colours for summer beauty but don’t forget to have fun with nail art and festival accessories. A cute headband like this polka-dotted wrap headband is ideal to keep hair out of the way and keep you looking super cute on the beach while Clinique’s chubby stick lipsticks come in every colour and are so easy to wear. Keep one in your bag at all times for touch-ups which will keep your lips hydrated and looking fabulous.
