We recently celebrated spring day and even though it hasn’t showed us any mercy that still doesn’t mean we shouldn’t get ready to summer up. I know most of us have already dry-cleaned and tucked away our coats and we are patiently awaiting the right time to go shopping for the hot season must haves. Preparation is the ultimate goal –we don’t want to go from shop to shop ending up with things we won’t want to wear in a few weeks time. Even though we might not have the same taste of clothing but trust me, you won’t go wrong with our choices. It just takes a few tweaks to make the outfit your own.
Showing some thigh can never hurt anybody, just shave up and put on some shine in those legs and you are good to go. There are various lengths to suit all kinds of women and most of all you can play around with patterns and prints. These haven’t one minute gone out of fashion –look for that floral jumpsuit and rock it hard. Go wild with solid bright colours –I’m talking about your yellows, white and peach, more colour equals more sass. If you are not fond of jumpsuits you can try strapless flared pattern dresses.
There are also high waist shorts that can go amazingly well with crop tops. Remember not to wear crop tops with low cut bottoms it is a no no. You can also try out shirt dresses, tennis dresses and don’t be afraid to try out lace; we need some air caressing our summer bodies that we worked so hard to get since winter. Remember when they said summer bodies are made in winter, I hope you listen.
When we are walking and bearing the heat we don’t want to be clinging to things that will make us all dripping with sweat, so make sure you have small sling bags that will compliment your well put outfit. Being a slave to print I would advise you to play around with our beloved African print; this gives a youthful relaxed look.
For the ladies that are not taken by the printed look there are leather sling bags, try to leave the boring brown and black colours to winter –spice things up with a little red or mustard. And if you want to pack a few more items that won’t be able to fit in a sling bag then got for big but light bags –choose colours that are bright. Remember dark colours attract and absorb heat and you don’t want to be 100 degrees hot.
Every girl’s favourite topic right ladies, it is time you clean up your legs –moisturise those cracks, cut and trim your toes nails and dress them up with a glossy nail polish and everything you put on will automatically look fabulous. Sandals should be your best friend. I know the confusion that fills my head when I go through the footwear department –the different colours and designs makes a woman want to go crazy –the strappy, thong, T-bar and Hercules sandals, it doesn’t matter ladies, just grab one that will best suit you. There are also pumps that you can choose from that will be suit girls that are more insecure about their feet.
We need something that will allow ventilation and the trendiest thing at the moment is oversized t-shirt. You can choose graphic printed ones or soft wools. For a more cover up you can put on a kimono, amazingly gracing the scene –what is great about these is that you can glam them up with a figure belt or tone them down with a pair of denims and shorts. You can personalise them and make them your own and in the meanwhile prepare for the good times to come.
