Summer is finally here! The warm summer sun and the cool breeze. What to do? Hit the beach, the resort, or throw a backyard beach theme party! I've been asked what what to wear when going out for a summer parties.... Well, there are many new styles and colors to choose from, this year. Of course no body wants to look or feel out of place, but like they say, it's always better to be over-dressed then under-dressed.
First of all, it's very important to wear something that you will feel comfortable, yet elegant. You don't want to feel dehydrated, sweaty, or irritable while your are meeting new people and friends. Any light weight materials will make you feel fresh and it's always better against your skin: Natural fibers such as Cotton, linen, and silk. Others could be cotton lace or anything sheer.
For colors, I'd say wear the colors that looks good on you! For example the colors for this season is white, this doesn't mean you have to wear white. How to choose what color looks better on you? Hold the color up next to your face. For prints, use the most concentrated colors on the prints. The colors should make your eyes stand out, brighten your skin color, healthier looking face, and most of all you should look fresh. But keep in mind, dark shades will make you warmer, to keep cool try to keep the color light or pastel.
