Fashion Fun In The Sun: Outfit Ideas For The Warm Weather
Summer is a chance for fashion lovers to have fun with their look. Unlike autumn and winter, you don’t have to finish every outfit with a warm coat and a pair of boots to keep the wind, rain and snow out! Plus when the sunshine means everyone is out and about more often, there are more opportunities to be getting dressed up and playing around with outfits. Here are just a few styles you could try out over the coming months.

Girl Next Door
Sweet and girly, you can’t go wrong with a typical ‘girl next door’ style. Go with flowing sundresses with a cardigan or cropped denim jacket, sandals and a sun hat. A touch of mascara will make your eyes look bigger and more awake, and a swipe of pink blush and lipstick give you a natural looking rosy glow.
Relaxed bohemian looks are great in the summer. Even if you’re not attending a festival, it’s easy to take elements of the style and work it into a casual summer outfit. A floaty dress or some loose-fitting shorts with a vest is a good start. You’re not going to feel weird if you’re not at a festival knee-deep in mud, so go with some gladiator sandals or even a pair of cowboy fringed boots. Carry on the fringe theme with your bag, and then accessories with bohemian style jewelry. Feather earrings, stacked bangles and chunky cuff bracelets are all perfect. Finish with a flower crown, some aviator sunglasses and bronze/ neutral makeup.
Cute and Casual
Denim shorts, a plain tee or cami and a pair of converse make this the ideal summertime outfit when you’re out and about. Maybe you’re going to a theme park or doing some other kind of activity where a dress or skirt isn’t really suitable. Forget the handbag, go with a rucksack or cross body bag instead. Far more practical when you’re out and about and works well with the look. A baseball cap with your ponytail through the back, some aviator sunglasses and a swipe of red lipstick gives this the perfect ‘I look fabulous but without trying too hard’ look.
Maybe you have a garden party or barbecue to attend, a wedding or a day at the races? If so you’ll need a glamorous, dressy outfit which is still summer appropriate. Maxi dresses are a fantastic choice here. They look glamorous and dressy while flattering your figure. If it’s a slightly more casual affair, accessorize with a chunky belt, oversized sunglasses and a cropped denim jacket. If it’s a little more formal add some jewelry, some high-heeled wedges and a clutch bag. Smokey eye makeup and a dressier hairstyle will help to finish the look.
