Summer is just around the corner! And with vaccines slowly rolling out, it’s easier for us to move around freely. So, with that, you have to try looking your best again just in time for going out. 2020 was a year of quarantine and being home all-day and every day. But this year, you should try to put some effort into how you look. You don’t know the chances you’ll have when you start going out. And you don’t know who are the ones you might meet, so you need to make sure you look your best!
In this article, we’ll be listing down seven ways to be stylish just in time for the summer season. Remember that when you look good, you also start to feel good. So, exude confidence with these seven tips and go out looking like a million dollars!
1. Start wearing a watch
A watch is basically the finishing touch to any outfit. When you go out, you want to look like you actually put effort into yourself. But nowadays, since we are a “Smartphone generation,” most people neglect to wear a timepiece on their wrists. But wearing a watch is still different. When you have a watch, you will less likely keep looking at your phone for the time. This helps you focus more on the moment. So, if you have a good watch already, start wearing it out again. If not, then invest in a good timepiece that can last you for decades to come. Rolex, Omega, or Breguet watches are great options for luxury timepieces. The best thing about luxury watch brands is that they offer you quality and they retain their value. That’s why buying a preowned luxury watch is always a budget friendly option. And if you get the perfect model that will suit your style and preference, you can easily wear it with any outfit to make yourself look more made-up.
2. Wear a nice pair of sunglasses
Our eyes are just as important as any part of our body. With the summer season nearing, you should make sure to shield your eyes from the harmful rays of the sun. Invest in a good pair of sunglasses that are polarized or offer UV protection.
You can get sunglasses in many different styles, so pick one that will best suit your face shape. Sunglasses are meant to protect your eyes but also make you look stylish! So invest in a pair that you can use for many summers and outdoor activities to come.
3. Opt for a stylish washable cloth face mask
Although we are now more free to move around, that doesn’t mean we should stop taking precautions. We are all still required to wear a face mask when going out. But most disposable face masks look too plain and boring. And since they’re disposable, we’re adding more waste to the environment by using them. So, opt for a washable face mask that you can use several times. There are three-ply washable cloth masks that can offer you good protection from droplets, dust, and pollution. Most washable cloth masks come in a variety of styles, colors, and patterns. You can get a bunch of them to match with your outfit! Who says you can’t be stylish in the midst of a pandemic, anyway?
4. Get a few pairs of chino shorts
Chino shorts are made from cotton twill fabric, so they’re pretty comfortable. This summer, match your shirts with a nice pair of chino shorts for a laid-back casual look. You can move around in these shorts while still looking stylish! And there are so many colors to choose from so you can easily match them with the shirts that you already have in your closet. Long pants are great for nighttime and other formal occasions, but chino shorts are the way to go for a casual stroll in the park. And when you’re going out for a trip in the daylight, these are your best bet for both comfort and style!
5. Wear white sneakers
White sneakers are probably the most versatile of all footwear. You can wear them with pants and shorts and still look stylish. And during semi-formal occasions, you can even get away with them! The best part about these shoes is that they’re comfortable, so you can go walking in them for hours and hours.
White sneakers come in a variety of styles and materials. So, if you want something extra comfy and casual, opt for a canvas pair. But if you want something more elegant to match with your semi-formal attire, then get them in leather.
6. Get an acrylic face shield
Face masks are still a requirement in most places, but so are face shields. You can get more protection from the virus with a face shield, after all. But most disposable face shields look tacky and some just look like they’re meant to be for hospital use. So, get yourself a lightweight acrylic face shield that’s also aesthetic. Acrylic face shields come in many styles, shapes, sizes, and even colors! You can choose one that will best fit your preference. And if you opt for a colored one, you can even match them with the color palette of most of your outfits.
7. Don’t neglect your socks
The funny thing about socks is that we tend to neglect them since they’re not really seen most of the time. But a few pairs of logo socks can actually make you look and feel better. How exactly, you ask? Well, there’s actually an unwritten rule that the color of your socks should match the color of your shirt. So, sometimes, when your pants pull up a bit, your socks can be seen. Also, if you wear socks that are snazzy or fun, it’s nice to get a peep of them every once in a while throughout the day.
Socks can be fun as long as you get the pairs that look fun. Even if they’re just socks, it doesn’t mean they don’t matter. A snazzy pair of socks can make a big difference in your outfit and mood, too!
