The summer season is the perfect time to experiment with colorful clothes. Don’t be shy by sticking with neutral or lighter looks—go for something that pops! You’ll be glad you did when you’re chilling at the family barbecue; deeper, more lush summer colors are more forgiving when it comes to careless spills and stains.

2) Get Creative With Fresh Produce

You can’t go wrong with eating fresh, healthy foods to help look you’re best. But remember, you can use fresh produce on your skin and hair to make your look pop, too! Try mixing items like papaya, honey and brown sugar for a foolproof facial scrub. It’s an easy solution you can create at home to revitalize your skin after long, sweaty days in the sun and on the beach.

3) Go For The Floppy Hat

They’re glamorous. They’re all the rage. Also, they’re extremely practical for protecting your skin from the sun. Just wear it with confidence and you’ll be sitting pretty in the shade all day long.

4) Let Your Feet Rest In Some Flats

It’s okay to admit it—we all hate wearing heels that are uncomfortable and that slow you down as you’re trying to get from A to B. The good news is that you don’t have to wear heels! Summertime looks are fun because you can wear comfy flats whether it’s morning or night and still look fresh. Get them in different colors to mix and match with your clothes and you’ll be set.

5) Wear Minimal Makeup For A Sun-kissed Look

Instead of heavy foundation, keep it light. Just dab on some bronzer for your summertime glow. Then top it off with a neutral shimmer on your lids. Why spend time applying different makeup products to make your face look good when the summer sun can do it for you?

6) Keep Your Nails On Point

They’re a subtle, yet noticeable part of your appearance. Maintain them well enough and they’ll always add a polished look to any outfit (no pun intended).

7) Style Your Hair In An Updo

Wearing your hair up makes any outfit look more sophisticated. Use a hair tie to create a bun or try a headband to achieve the look that works best for you. Trying an updo is an easy way to stay cool, look cute and transition your look anytime of day.
