Every year dozens of style professionals tell us what’s hot and what’s not. How many personal fashion mistakes are a result of bad advice? This year, don’t show up at the neighborhood pool party wearing something weird from Paris. Wear an easy, casual style that will inspire others to put their best fashion foot forward. This year apply these simply summer style ideas and be the belle of every summer ball!
This year’s style is touchy, feely. Bring texture to your wardrobe like a beige rope bracelets or hemp style belt. Don a straw hat with platform espadrilles. Besides espadrilles, strappy sandals with hemp accents make the perfect attention getters.
For summer 2011, blue is the eye color to wear and not just any blue. Shades of blues like royal, azure and navy are good combinations. For the smoothest eye finish wear mineral eye powders or eye creams. Encircle the eyes with deep blue liner and top off lashes with deep black, waterproof mascara.
High-Waisted Pants and Shorts
Just like the 70’s, high-waisted pants and shorts are this year’s stylish clothing choices. Tuck in sleeveless shirts and pair up a thin, matching belt.
Stained or Bare Lips
Heavy lipsticks and gloopy glosses are out. Stained lips or barely glistening lips are this year’s fashion approved lip styles. Lip stains give lips a healthy, natural color. A light sheen of gloss will protect lips from sun damage and make them look kissable.
Cool, casual silk plays a role in summer 2011’s style selections. Wrap a silk scarf around above your bangs or the top portion of your hair. Instant fashion! Bright bold colors like blue, orange and purple are gorgeous hair wear.
For the past decade bronzers have been a staple of summer beauty bags. This year one bronze color won’t do. Try dual bronzers instead. Skip the rouge or blush. Wear the darkest bronzer on the cheeks and apply the lightest bronzer to the forehead, cheeks and nose.
Invest in a tropical-inspired handbag. Straw purses with bead embellishments and bold colors make summer accessorizing fun! Think tacky tourist! Large bandana style bags and tropical print clutch purses make nice bags for fashionistas.
