Many blinding do’s and don’ts have come to my attention since we suddenly got warm weather. The following list is my idea of simple ways to make your don’ts into do’s!
Don’t: Bootie Shorts- So we’re talking the thin cotton shorts that usually say some name brand over the butt and have a draw string waist. The public should not be forced to look and your butt cheeks as you walk by- plain and simple. THE ONLY place to be wearing these types of shorts is on the beach or as pajamas. Also, moms, you should not be letting your 10 year old walk around in shorts with a 1/4″ seam!! Thats just wrong!
Do: Bermudas and walking shorts- If you insist on wearing shorts, a pair with at least a 2″ inseam is the shortest anyone should go- no matter how hot your legs are. I personally LOVE Bermuda shorts, they cover the thigh and are flattering on every body type.
Don’t: Bikini Tops as Bras- Ok, so you’re going to the beach and there is no place to change and you are going straight home afterwards then sure- wear your bikini top under your tank; but to the mall? We you really just at the beach?? Than WHY are you wearing your bathing suit?
Do: A Bra- Yes, its that simple, you wore one all winter, why stop in the summer. If you are wearing a tube top or halter invest in a good strapless. Common sense right?
Don’t: Flip flops: Ok, I own a million pairs myself, but I’m talking to those ladies that never take their flip flops off! They are meant for the beach, or to the park or something, don’t wear them everyday of the entire summer- don’t you have a cuter option?
Do: Gladiators- If you didn’t get your chance to buy a pair last year- now is your chance, they are everywhere! Gladiators are a cute alternative to flip flops and you can dress them up or wear them with a casual look. PLUS most of them have an ankle strap, so you don’t have to worry about them falling off or randomly falling apart on you at a summer music festival! (yes…that has happened to me on multiple occasions!)
Don’t: Trucker/ baseball caps- Good on you for wearing a hat- but right now there are plenty of other options out there other then a boring old baseball cap. Plus this is usually not the most flattering hat and its also not really in style anymore!
Do: Fedora’s and sun hats- Straw fedoras and sun hats and a cute option for head gear this summer. Fedoras are great for everyday and sun hats are awesome for that summer wedding or heading out to the beach.
Well…this is just the tip of the iceberg. I am sure I could go on FOREVER with this post but these are the most popular mistakes I see daily. Feel free to comment with your additional do’s and don’ts!
