Easy-Going Summer Style

Summer days are long and waking up in the morning is nearly impossible to do – not only due to lack of sleep but the heat outside makes you want to stay in the air conditioning forever. But we’ve got a lot to do this month – The Fourth of July, road trips with friends, cookouts at night, and happy hours after work. Here are a few tricks to keeping things easy and stress-free when it comes to looking gorgeous all summer long.

Skip the Separates: When it comes to mixing and matching colors, patterns, and textures – sometimes you just wish you didn’t have to. A casual dress or romper is a much easier option. There’s really no thought required when you can slip one article of clothing on and be good for the day. Plus, if you have an Independence Day party or a friendly get-together, one-piece outfits always help you look like you put way more effort into your outfit than you really did.makeup 

Forget the Foundation: Wearing makeup in the summer can be a real drag. We all know it’s only going to get hotter over the next month, so make yourself feel better by using as little makeup as possible. That’s not to say you need to skip your entire makeup routine, but foundation is not your friend when it comes to heat and humidity. Instead, pick two concealers – one for under your eyes and anywhere you want to brighten a bit, and the other to cover any blemishes you might have. Prep it with a primer and set it with a powder and you’ll be good to go. And of course, don’t forget the sunscreen!

Snub the Stilettos: A comfy pair of shoes is key in the summer time. Plus, who wants to walk around all sweaty with sore feet? From days running around at family parties or nights out to the bar with friends, there is no need to put yourself through the pain of wearing heels. Summer fashion is all about keeping it casual, so a super cute pair of sandals or your favorite pair of Converse can make any ensemble – day or night – look perfectly put together.sandals

Let this summer be the time you feel your most amazing. Uncomfortable clothes, shoes, and makeup can be saved for the cool, crisp days of fall – or you can take them out of your style all together. Now is the time to feel free to do whatever you want and not be held back by melting makeup or sore feet. So enjoy this summer, feel amazing, and relax.
