The Style Glossy: Dressing Room
Indulge in the Romance of Fashion
By Gracey Hitchcock for The Style Glossy
The lighter clothes of summer give you the opportunity to bring out the romantic side of fashion. So agrees business woman, fitness entrepreneur and owner of World Class Fitness Clubs, Olga Slutsker. “I like long dresses for everyday,” says Slutsker. The simple cool bohemian style suits her. “I prefer feminine things, but I’m not fussy. As the boss, I don’t have to wear a suit to the office. I can even wear sportswear. Today, I’m sitting here in a new Marni dress. It is very light and I am enjoying it.”
Add Playful Touches
Go bohemian style, with peachy tones, feminine ribbon belts and head scarves tied babushka-style to epitomise the sprit of the season: soft, romantic and playful.
Individualise Your Look
Putting a personal twist on your look is vital if you want to stand out. “Lately, I have heard many stories of two girls wearing the same dress to a party,” jazz singer Maria Tarasevich said, “and that is not fun.” She is right -- no one wants to feel like she is wearing a uniform.
Scarves are an easy way to update and individualise your look. Tie them loosely around your neck, as head wraps or as head bands. Scarves are also an easy way to work floral or tribal print into your look.
Show off Your Legs
Miniskirts can help make shorter women look leggy. When wearing a thigh-skimming skirt, don’t go too bare on top. Try a T-shirt or tank -- not a camisole. A light golden tan is also the best way to show off perfect legs or camouflage a few flaws. Remember to choose a self-tanner for your skin tone. To avoid streaks, exfoliate before applying to be sure the self-tanner will soak into your skin evenly. Getting a safe glow for summer can be very sexy and appealing.
Update Your Hair and Makeup
To top off your perfect outfit, update your look with a new hairstyle or makeup shades. An easy way to get a sexy glow is with bronzer. Pick one designed for your skin tone, and use it where the sun hits your face naturally. Keep makeup sheer and pretty -- skip heavy foundations, concealer and powder in the heat.
Make your lips pop with the newest shades of hot red lipstick -- deep and sanguine. Chose a sheer vermillion gloss if you like a lighter look. Sizzling corals and hot pink also look great with a summer glow.
To keep the hair off your neck during the heat and add to your playful side, try a perky high ponytail or sweet side ponytail tied with a scarf, hair band or ribbon.
