What’s In Your Wardrobe? 5 Summer Must-haves for Every Girl!

Updated on February 25, 2014

I still remember my summer holiday excitement. Summer was always about trips to the beach, sand castles, fresh fruity drinks, delicious sea food and lots and lots of shopping! It’s still the same today. That’s the beauty of this season; even simple activities bring a lot of happiness and excitement. Maybe it’s because of the jolly summer sun or the capricious, cooling summer breeze or the sense of anticipation and eagerness that pervades the air.

Anyway, dressing up during summer is just as fun because summer is all about color. If you love color and colourful things, (I do) summer’s the season for you! I was rummaging in my closet the other day, trying to get out dresses, shoes and accessories that will complement the mood and feel of this season and I realized that there were a couple of things that I found to be absolutely essential to summer. Sharing my finds with you in the hope that you to will have a swell summer with these fashion must-haves!

Flirty summer dress

If I had to use an adjective to describe summer, I would choose the word ‘flirty, ’because summer is about fun, thrill and a little adventure. Now infuse this quality into your wardrobe by getting for yourself a colourful, flirty summer dress. There are so many out there! Short ones, long ones, really short ones, asymmetrical ones. Experiment with necklines too. Halters, tubes and spaghettis really look hot. You could also try off shoulder ones or ones with a deep V-neck. Make sure to choose dresses that have bright prints and patterns. Floral prints, stripes, polka dots are all perfect for this peppy season!

Bright-colored flip-flops

Summer involves lots of trips to the beach, shopping, visiting, in short, lots of walking! Make sure you own a pair of colourful flip-flops. Flip-flops are a great option for summer because they let your feet breath and so you won’t have to deal with the problem of smelly feet, what with all the sweating! It’s also great if you want to spend long hours at the beach as sand won’t accumulate in your footwear. Flip-flops are extremely comfortable, making it easy for you to go on those much-required, day-long shopping excursions as well. And the best part is that their cheap and so you can own multiple pairs to suit your different dresses.

Colorful bead/thread bracelets

Add spunk and style to your look by accessorizing with these trendy, colourful summer bracelets. Choose brightly colored beaded or thread bracelets. The trick is to wear many of them. You can even make these bracelets as a summer project. More fun in that, right! However, when wearing these bracelets, ensure that you aren’t also wearing bright colored dresses and shoes or you’ll end up looking a little garish. Opt for subtle, pastel hues and let the splash of color come from these bracelets.

A trendy bag

To go with the cute dress, you need a trendy bag! There are many cool bags out there. Opt for a hobo bag or a tote as these bags have a summery feel and are also great for stuffing in lots of items. Choose bright colors and prints, the more loud the better. To balance your look, you can always go subtle when it comes to your dress, shoes and makeup.

Summer makeup

Keep track of the current spring/summer makeup trends to get your look right. Stock up on matt lipsticks because they are a rage this season, especially colors like bright orange and hot pink. If you’re not a lover of lipsticks you could opt for a lip polish or a lip balm. Maybelline’s Baby Lips Loves Color range has fruity lip balms in pretty shades that look, smell and taste great! Opt for a coral or peach blush as well as this will give your cheeks a rosy glow that is perfect for this season. Don’t forget to have a dark, smudge-free eyeliner. You could experiment with colored eyeliners and try out a white or bright blue one. And don’t forget sunscreen!
