Experiment with your hair accessories. Headbands, flower pins and what we’re loving now – hippie bands. They can make any dull outfit really stand out.

All About The Midriff

Crop-tops are all the rage right now. Throw on a floral or bright colored one with a pair of high waist shorts or a skirt – instantly drawing the eye to the narrowest part of your body.

Linen Pants

They’re absolutely perfect for those lazy Sunday brunches. You can get them in a range of different colors and pair them with a slouchy tee – Relaxi-chic.

Summer Dresses

The name says it all. Go monochrome with white embroidery on a white cotton dress or pick a loose orange colored maxi. They can even take you from day to night.

Tote’s Amaze

An oversized tote bag is an absolute must! How else are you going to tug around those sodas to keep you hydrated under the hot sun? Not to forget, sunblock.

Sun = Sunglasses. Enough said!

DIY Bracelets

Here’s where you can have some fun. Make your own bracelets with colorful chords and beads. You can add on charms and crystals too. Stack them up on your wrist and they make the perfect summer accessory.

Flip Flops

Ditch those smoking slippers and lace-ups. Trade them in for a pair of flip-flops or sandals. Airy and light, a summer necessity.

Itsy-Bitsy Polka Dot Bikini

Remember the best part about summer? The pool parties! You don’t have to get a bikini, slip into a stylish monokini or get yourself a tankini. Make sure you get a bright summery color, say bye bye to black.

Talk To The Hand

Enough of those French manicures. Its time to go neon! Give your nails a dose of lime green, flaming orange and fluorescent pinks. Let your nails do the talking.
