|Sizzlin’ Summer Styles
Stay in style this summer with the latest trends whether you’re hitting up the beach, planning a road trip, or a vacation get away, we have you covered. Out with the old and in with the new sizzlin’ summer styles like ripped jeans, jump suits, open shoulder dresses, high waisted shorts, and overalls.
Don’t forget to pack a stylish beach bag to go along with any outfit. I personally love a cute tote bag from Vera Bradley which are totally stylish and can fit all of your sun-bathing essentials. They also sell cosmetic bags for you to put all of your beauty essentials in. The Oxford Postage Stamps beach tote is my personal pick. It also comes in a floral print. You can mix and match however you’d like with a straw wristlet, lotion bag, tote, beach backsack, or lounge around towel for your friends to share.
Who doesn’t love cute ripped shorts or jeans? Polyvore has a wide selection of ripped jeans from various stores. I love the denim ripped jeans and shorts especially the high waisted jeans, which pair perfectly with an off the shoulder top or a ripped t-shirt. Urban Outfitters is always my go to for fashion friendly jeans especially BDG’s high waisted light denim skinny jeans.
I love love Forever 21’s floral open shoulder dresses. It’s the year of the flower power. The more floral the better but don’t go overboard with a floral accessory like a bag or necklace. My personal favorite is the open-shoulder floral mini dress for $17.90. It’s great for a casual night out or you can dress it up for a night out with the gals.
Free People makes stylish jumpsuits and rompers in every fabric imaginable. All of their designs are unique and for the fashion savvy. You can even purchase an A-line overall and put a cute shirt underneath.
There is my list for my favorite summer sizzlin’ styles. You can change up the trends and style it anyway you like. Most stores carry for curvy girls as well like Forever 21.
My makeup for the day was a combination of dark eye shadow colors with a black eyeliner on top and bottom. I decided to wear lighter vibrant colors on my cold shoulder shirt paired with white jeans to really make my makeup pop.
Apply light eye shadow and then a darker shimmer shade on top. You can apply the pencil eyeliner after you put on the eye shadows. Repeat until you get the desired look.
Next, apply the eyeliner on bottom and mascara. I put my liquid foundation I like to check the ingredients and make sure they are organic. Apply to face and rub in thoroughly. You’re almost done. Just add your simmer on your cheeks.
