Well, summer is officially upon us, even if the weather is not playing ball all that much. Rather than let the typical British summer get us down, we should embrace the change of season optimistically and hope for better things by getting our wardrobes ready for summer.
Summer is the time to throw off our heavy, dark winter clothing and slip into something light and bright. This has a wonderful psychological effect on us, making us feel more awake and alive and enjoying the long days that summer gives us. This is why we need to indulge in some new clothes. By the way, a new season wardrobe covers the whole range of clothing, from skirts, trousers and tops, to shoes and handbags.
But buying a completely new summer wardrobe does not come cheap, so it is important to be clothes-savvy when choosing what to include. For example, it is not only important to look good but also to feel good. This is why you should opt for fabrics that allow your body to breathe. Many high street clothes shops offer clothes at great prices, but these are often made of poly-blended fabrics that will make you sweat, and that retain the stains after washing. The best types of fabric for your summer wardrobe are cotton and linen, but surprisingly, silk and thin denim are also good.
But wait a moment! There is no point investing money in new clothes if you take little care of yourself. Summer is a good time to consider an entirely new look for yourself, by having your hair cut in a new style. You may want a cut that is easy to manage in the heat of summer, like an on-trend bob or something even shorter, or you may want a style that can be left loose and pinned back. If you do not have time to grow your hair for such a style, you can always enhance your own hair with quality hair extensions, such as those found at Hair Planet Ltd. Here you can buy real hair extensions, ones that clip in, nano tip, micro loop and many more. You should easily be able to find a hair extension that suits you.
If you like the clothes you have but want to make them more suitable for summer, you could reinvent your existing wardrobe. Have a long skirt you love? Why not take it to a tailor or seamstress, who can cut it down for you and turn it into a great summer mini or midi skirt? If you have a pair of trousers that are getting a big baggy around the knees, you could have them cut down to become shorts. Alterations are a great alternative to buying new clothes, and could save you money as well as cut down on landfill.
Take advantage of the change in season to update your wardrobe with the latest fashions, and match them with a sassy, on-trend hairdo.
