The Chief Blonde’s 3 summer style suggestions:
Summer Style Secret #1. Wear a Hat!
Remember PALE is the new TAN! Let’s prevent Melanoma this summer!!
Summer Style Secret #2 If you must wear capris, wear a heel
I think most capri pants are pretty ugly. That being said, I also understand why many women wear them. If you wear capris, I recommend wearing them with a heel. Now not 4″ heels maybe, but an espadrille or sandal. A higher shoe creates a much better line. PLEASE DON”T WEAR WITH TENNIS SHOES AND SOCKS!!!! Also, a dark flat just makes you look squatty. If you must wear a flat stick with a skin color shoe. Personally, I hate capris but I show a better way to wear them.
The Chief Blonde contrasts capris with and without a heel.
Summer Style Secret #3 –If you must wear a t-shirt, especially a men’s or graphic T, dress it up. Look feminine!
As a rule, I hate men’s t-shirts on women. They are all wrong for a woman’s body. No matter what your shape, a woman’s t-shirt is so much better of a choice. Yet, in the summer there are many situations where you must wear a men’s or graphic T-shirt. If you do, try to add feminine details like a necklace or a belt to soften the lines.
