Wear the colour of the summer.

One of the easiest ways to turn your street into a runway this summer is to embrace the latest trends, especially when it comes to wearing trending colours. After all, adding a pop of colour to your outfit is the easiest way to brighten up an otherwise simple look, whether you’re wearing a long, flowing dress or a pair of sunglasses. 

According to various reports and fashion experts, the summer’s most popular colours include: 

  • Magenta 

  • Orange

  • Olive Green

  • Pastel Pink

  • Baby Blue

  • Yellow

  • Cream


Beyond this, many people tend to stick to wearing softer, paler colours during the summer month. This is because “light-coloured clothing reflects most of the visible wavelengths which, in turn, absorbs less heat.” As such, while the little black dress is a timeless piece, it may be something you want to save for cooler weather! 

Change your hairstyle. 

Changing your hairstyle is another great way to upgrade your style. However, in order to make this possible, you’ll have to invest in different hair accessories that you can use to bring your new look to life. For example, you may want to invest in specialist hair dryers that leave you with voluminous, curly locks after your daily blow dry. This way, you’ll always look like you’ve just stepped out of the salon.

In addition to this, you may want to use this as an opportunity to dye your hair. While this is a significant change, it can be a great way to express yourself, especially if you opt for a non-conventional colour. 

Keep your makeup simple. 

The summer heat is often the enemy of a good makeup look - with many finding that makeup simply melts away as soon as they apply it. While setting spray can come in handy here, opting for simple makeup looks during the summer is also an excellent idea. After all, the glowy, fresh-faced look is always in style. 

Not only is this easier to maintain or top up throughout the day, but it will also take less time to complete each morning - which is great for those that would rather spend the extra time in bed or being productive before they have to head out to work.  

On a similar note, you should make sure that you apply sunscreen regularly, even when the sun appears to be hidden behind the clouds. After all, “even on overcast days, up to 80% of UV rays can still penetrate light cloud cover and reach your skin.” Taking good care of your skin during the summer can help prevent a range of skin care complaints, such as sunburn and premature aging.

Remember that every body is a bikini body.

According to a recent study, “80% of women are dissatisfied with their bodies to some degree,” stating that this often reflects in how they dress. For example, you may feel as though you have to cover as much skin as possible during the summer, even though this leaves you prone to overheating and means you miss out on some of the more ‘fun’ summer clothing options. 

As a result, it's important to remember that, despite what societal expectations may indicate, everybody is a bikini body, and if you carry yourself with confidence, you’ll always look great. Your body has taken you through every step of your life, through good days and bad, and deserves to be celebrated. So, if you’re thinking about buying that bikini - do it! 

If you find that you are constantly comparing yourself to influencers on social media (especially their summertime pics), remember that Instagram is not always a reflection of real life, and stylish posing and lighting can all change how a person looks. Beyond this, consider hitting the unfollow button, focusing instead on curating a social media feed that’s filled with body positivity and makes you feel good about yourself.

Don’t forget your accessories. 

Learning how to accessorise can take a basic outfit into one that feels as though it was taken straight from the pages of a fashion magazine. This is because even the smallest of details are important when it comes to putting together a look that is chic and cohesive. As such, you should ensure you don’t overdo it when accessing by wearing every piece of jewellery you own. Instead, choose pieces that complement your outfit, focusing on colours or shades that blend well together. 

Alternatively, if your outfit itself is a little more on the simple side, you can make a statement by choosing brighter, bolder accessories. For example, if you were wearing a white sundress, why not opt for a thick-framed pair of sunglasses and a straw sunhat for a timeless yet chic look? 

Embrace your own style.

Wearing clothes we feel comfortable in will always leave us looking and feeling our best, as it means we are not pretending to be someone we are not. Instead, we’re expressing ourselves through our fashion choices. As such, if you aren’t fawning over the latest trends or have a sense of style that is a little unconventional, don’t force yourself to wear them. Wearing clothes that you love will fill you with a sense of confidence that makes you look more stylish than you could ever imagine. It could also encourage others to embrace their own unique style, too! 

Experiment with layering.

Layering is another great way to elevate your fashion choices this summer, as it can help you to introduce new patterns and textures to your look. However, as the weather is much warmer during the summer months, you must ensure that you layer with lightweight fabrics instead of heavier ones. For example, if you were to wear a summer dress during the day, you could transition this into an evening look by adding a chiffon shirt or lightweight blazer over the top.

Find the perfect pair of shoes.

One of the biggest concerns that many people face when it comes to upgrading their wardrobe in time for summer relates to how much it can cost. However, this can easily be combated by being more purposeful when purchasing certain items. For example, instead of buying endless pairs of shoes, focus on finding a versatile pair of sandals or trainers that you can wear with a range of different outfits. Not only is this much more budget-friendly, but it's also a great way to ensure you are shopping sustainably. Of course, you can also save a great deal of money when shopping for clothes by shopping second-hand or reselling your old clothes on sites such as Depop.  

Final thoughts.

In short, there are many different ways in which you can ensure you look stylish all summer long, whether you are experimenting with new hairstyles or incorporating brighter colours and patterns into your wardrobe. However, it's important to remember that sometimes, it's less about the outfit and more about the way you carry yourself in it.

When you move or carry yourself with confidence, others will take note. As such, before you leave the house each day, be sure to practise some positive affirmations that will boost your confidence. This way, you’ll look stylish no matter what!
