Mixed race women

With summer’s arrival, it’s the perfect time to inject some excitement into your style and embark on a new fashion adventure. Whether you’ve been feeling stuck in a style rut or simply want to embrace the vibrant energy of the warmer weather, now is the ideal moment to experiment and discover what new colours and hairstyles can do for your look. This fresh approach will not only give you a renewed sense of confidence but also prepare you to fully immerse yourself in the joy of summer and the warmth it brings.

But where do you start, and what changes can you make? These tips are here to empower you, giving you the inspiration and guidance to make subtle or drastic changes to your hair, body, and clothing style ahead of the summer months. Remember, it’s your style journey, and you’re in control.

Switch Up Your Signature Colour

If you’re always wearing the same ocular throughout your outfits, i.e. back is a common theme, or you’re more partial to a deep, rich green in your clothing choices, why not mix it up and add in a lighter fresher colour for the summer? It doesn’t need to be a drastic change; just going from black to a grey, even a darker grey shade, can work well for the summer, as can going from a deep green to a lighter shade. For instance, you could try a vibrant coral, a sunny yellow, or a refreshing mint green. Changing up your go-to hue can allow you to create freshness in your wardrobe and embrace the spirit of summer fun with one easy change.

Change Your Hair

You have so many options when it comes to your summer hair. You can choose to have it all chopped off for a lighter, fresher feel, or you can add extensions to give you longer, fuller hair that lends itself perfectly to long beachy waves and updos that can elevate your style effortlessly. You can decide to have your hair colour changed; if you’re blonde or have all fighter hair colours, maybe go lighter for the summer. One product that can help you achieve this is Sun-In. Sun-In Hair Lightener is Back: What to Know Before You Try it. Essentially, it’s a spray that gradually lightens your hair, allowing you to control the level of lightness. You can use it at home if you prefer not to go to the salon. Or you can choose a pastel colour or a bright colour to let you take advantage of the summer feeling and shake things up this year.

Statement Jewelry and Accessories

For the summer, less is more when it comes to jewellery and accessories. The last thing you want is to overload yourself with many pieces; instead, invest in statement pieces that can elevate your look. This might be a summer bag that adapts to many different styles and creates an impact on its own; you can opt for a statement necklace, sunglasses, hat or anything else that can work well with a staple look to help you add a little something extra. Less is more, and this means picking a select few items that work well together, and you can mix and match them to help you avoid that littered, fussy look.

Pick A Pair of Shorts

No one wants to be covered up when the mercury rises, and finding a good pair of shorts that accentuates your body and are comfortable can help you to enjoy the summer without sweltering under layers of unnecessary clothing. Try on a few pairs in different styles to see what works for you. From linen knee-length shorts to utility shorts, athleisure shorts or classic denim, there are styles of shorts in a range of materials to help you find the perfect pair to style up in many ways this year.

Update Your Makeup

Winter and summer makeup should be vastly different, and on hot, long days, the last thing you want to be caked in is a heavier foundation and makeup eaters. Instead, swap out your usual choices for all fighter fresher products that still give you good coverage but aren’t as heavy on the skin. Lightweight foundations, tinted moisturizers, lip glosses over lipsticks, and liquid blushes can help you still achieve your signature look, but with products more suited for warm weather to allow your skin to breathe and not sweat.

Stylish Footwear

Your shoes can make or break your outfit, and choosing suitable footwear can enable you to really change things up and give you an added style element to your summer fun. You can opt for many different styles of sandals, from on-trend designs to summer casuals. Find a colour and style that can easily work with your outfits, and let your feet do the talking.

If sandals aren’t your thing, look for lightweight shoes that can offer comfort without covering your feet or making them sweaty. Choose shoes that will work well with different styles and outfit combinations.

Get A Skincare Treatment

Fresh, healthy skin can be an instant mood booster and a really effective way of helping you to boost your style and give you confidence for summer style changes. From investing in facial skincare treatments such as microdermabrasion or laser treatments to moisture therapy, which is a treatment that deeply hydrates your skin and improves its elasticity, and all-over body exfoliation and skin peels to help you remove layers of dead winter skin and build up and revive your body and soul this summer.

Get A Piercing or Tattoo

If you want to make a more drastic permanent change, a piercing or tattoo can really help you add something extra to your summer style, enhance your body, and give you a talking point. A ‘talking point’ refers to something unique or interesting about your appearance that can spark conversations or draw attention. From ear piercings to nose, tongue, or navel piercings, there are multiple options for adding body jewellery for the summer or for life; remember, if you let a piercing close over, you may still be left with a scar! 

A tattoo requires a lot more thought, and you need to be confident that you’re making the right decision as it’s more permanent. But if you’ve been thinking about adding body art to your skin, then the summer is the ideal opportunity to get that tattoo and show it off to the world.
