Hi Everyone, Lauren L. here, guest blogger for Faviana! Summer is just around the corner and in some parts of the United States, as well as some parts of the world, it sure feels like summer! Now is the time for vacations, beach trips, theme park visit, and music festivals and you must be prepared for it with sunglasses, bathing suits, dresses, shorts and tank tops! Have your water bottle handy and a strong bottle of sunscreen! Here is my list of summer must haves and essentials:
-A Good Pair of 100% UV Protected Sunnies
I just got my first pair of Ray Bans for my graduation last Sunday (May 19th) and I can already see a huge difference in the quality of a good pair of sunnies. Your eyes are important so make sure that your sunnies have 100% UV protection!
Retro bikinis are making a huge comeback this summer. They’re sexy, cute, and flattering for all body types. If this style isn’t your thing you can always opt for the classic bikini like this one.
There is no denying that high-waisted shorts are back in demand! They seem to be everywhere from celebrities like Miley Cyrus and Rihanna to fashionistas on the streets. Studded, dyed, and crochet decorated shorts are also extremely popular. Fashion tip: try your local thrift store to find high-waisted shorts or even jeans to cut into shorts. You can dye, stud, or add any kind of decoration to make them personal and your own! DIY is always the best way to go!
I have this tank from Forever21 and I love it! They have an amazing selection of tank tops like this one that are really cute and flirty for the summertime. Wear a bright colored bandeau or bustier to really make your outfit pop!
It’s all about bustier tops this summer! Especially beautiful floral ones like this one! These tops are excellent for music festivals because they are light and easy to move around in.
There is no doubt that just like high-waisted shorts, crop tops are back! It’s a 90s throwback! These tops are excellent, especially a light cotton blend that really breathes during those hot humid summer days. Great for any occasion like going to the beach or to a theme park.
-Light-Weight Knit Sweater
When the sun goes down or it’s a cool rainy day, you’re going to want something to keep you warm! Sit by the fire with a light knit sweater over your tank tops or sundresses to keep you warm when you need it most.
You don’t need to be a skater to wear a skater skirt (though it’s so fun in the summer)! High-waisted skater skirts and crop tops like the outfit above are cute, flirty, and fun. Dress it up or down for any occasion!
Faux-leather shorts are fun and sexy. They’re perfect for a night out to dinner and a movie or to a club! Or you could wear them casually with a slouchy white button-down top or like the model pictured above.
-Black and White Striped Skinny Jeans
From Cher Lloyd to Miley Cyrus, these jeans are everywhere! You can find them from stores like Forever21, H&M, and MotelRocks (above). They’re cool, different, and can go with any colored crop top, sheer blouse, slouchy tee, or bustier!
Look at how cute Ashley Tisdale is in her denim vest! These essentials are making a huge comeback this season and they are everywhere! A really cool thing to do is to find a denim jacket or vest at your local thrift shop and cut of the sleeves (if it’s a jacket) and leave it as is or decorate it with studs, patches, buttons, dye it, bleach it, etc. to make it your very own.
-Ankle Strap Heels
They’re sexy and they won’t fly off your feet! Ankle strap heels are a must have this summer to wear out casually or to a special date night. Bright colored heels are perfect for summer because they make every outfit pop and show off your sexy legs.
Bright nails are a summer staple and must-have. Draw attention to your beautiful nails with bright polish like Kiki by Zoya. The glitter infused in this polish is excellent. Glitter never goes out of style and adds a pop to your already beautiful nails.
I hope that I have inspired you to get outside this summer and show off these beautiful fashions/trends that are everywhere this season! Get out and have fun, summer goes by in a flash and you must make the most of it and make memories to cherish forever. Remember, DIY makes you stand out and shine! Don’t be afraid to be different.
