You mean apart from holidays, traveling, time-off from work, exotic beaches, cool seas & oceans, loads of parties, friends & families get-togethers? Yeah I pretty much am in love with summer and this Saturday I just thought of writing this easy super fun inspiring post to get us all in the summer mood and get us through the remaining weeks until the much awaited for exotic getaway. To me, there’s no better food for my spirit than being surrounded by the ones I love and having the best time ever. And somehow it has to be in summer, by the sea, in a place that just awaits to be made our best memory. No. No. I won’t get all cheesy and nostalgic on you now, and will stick to the topic: summer is the best for… (all the above) plus the easy-going fashion & trends. DOH. It’s an explosion of colors, silky fabrics, flowy textures, fun shoes, sexy dresses. I think we all get a bit laid back once the sun settles in, and have fun with clothes and mixing trends. All is in in summer, from the all-year-round cutoffs to simple tiny or maxi dresses, loads of bling, or no jewellery at all, huge beach bags or posh clutches, gladiator sandals, flip flops or the oh-so-glam sky high heels. Hotness meets looseness. But does 2013 summer come with its own beach trends? Of course. We wouldn’t have it any other way. Though sicking to a trend too literally and donning it to its very core, in a much too proper way – might be slightly boring, stealing a few tips from here and there and holding on to a few pieces from our past years and mixing it up into today’s trends – might just be more fun and basically what style is all about. 2013 beach wear is bringing to the spotlight: bandeau tops, fringed bras, mixed tops & bikinis, light colors, prints, and the return of the one-piece-swimsuit. Well… the 70’s are back so it was bound to happen. Yet, do not assume for a second you have to channel a 70’s boho-chic diva to wear one of these glam pieces. A hot low-cut solid colored swimsuit can look fantastic with a baseball cap on and some cool aviator or wayfarer shades, far a hip hop glam style for example. Cover-ups are still in. Will always be in. Best beach staple ever, and you know what? When it comes to these, I think no trend or rule applies, as long as you love it you’ll be rocking it. Also loving the boho-chic meets urban chic beach styles: cropped tops and bikinis, or oversizd t-shirts or tank tops, head scarves, baseball caps, and some accessorizing will have you looking like a beach hipster cool girl. Hair? Beach waves or buns still are the hottest. Or you might just forget all this fashion shit and stick to your favorite fabulous swimsuit, throw on anything you love without a care in the world, shades on, sun lotion, drinks, food, music and friends and make it the best time ever.
Have a lovely weekend dolls! xoxo
