Looking Very Summer

Own Your New Look This Summer With These Simple Rules

Everyone wants to find their perfect summer look. But it’s not always as easy as heading online and browsing through a bunch of different outfits. The summer is a time for new beginnings. It’s about shaking off all of the negative feelings that have accumulated during the course of a difficult winter. And it’s about quite literally shedding the big jumpers that most people have been wearing for months now because energy prices have been so high! The perfect summer look should make you feel like you’re stepping out of your shell.

This is why the perfect summer look is about more than an outfit. It’s about how you feel in yourself and your own skin. It’s an attitude as much as it is anything else, and that means that it can be tricky to pin down. But there are lots of different places that you can start if you want to shake up your look.

Say Goodbye To The Outfits That No Longer Spark Joy

Now, sparking joy is a bit of a dated phrase at this point, and Marie Kondo herself has admitted that she’s gotten a lot less strict about having everything perfectly neat and tidy since she had kids. But there is so much to be said for the idea that you should get rid of the things that don’t make you happy. Last year’s summer clothes will have been sitting in the wardrobe waiting for the weather to improve, but that doesn’t mean that you’re committed to wearing them. You should start by going through your outfits and seeing if there’s anything that doesn’t feel like you. For example, maybe you bought a dress that cheered you up when you were feeling blue, and you don’t need it anymore. Or maybe it’s less deep and you just don’t like that colour!

Rethink Your Eyewear

Eyewear says a lot more about a person than you might think. And it can seriously make you feel like you don’t look like yourself if you’re not happy with it. Eye care is one of those self-care activities and health checks that are so easy to keep putting at the bottom of the to-do list, especially if you’re already stressed about it. First of all, you should book an eye test if you haven’t had one in a while. You might find that your prescription has changed and that is very important. Secondly, if you have never been fond of your reading glasses and you can’t stand putting contact lenses in, why not think about refractive lens exchange? You can learn more about how it works at OCL Vision. They have a wide range of resources to help you understand how you can potentially correct your vision and their expert staff are on hand to provide you with all the information you could possibly want.

Find A Hair Salon That You Trust

It can be really tough when you feel self-conscious about your hair. This can be especially true as you start getting a little older and you start dealing with very common but sensitive issues. You may notice that a couple of white hairs have started to cluster together and bring new friends with them. You might also notice while brushing that you are losing more hair than you used to. Or maybe you want to find a new style that makes you feel more confident, but you don’t trust your current hairdresser to deliver it for you. It’s so important that you find a hair salon where you feel comfortable with your stylist. A good hair stylist will be able to talk to you about how you can hide or change the things you aren’t happy with, and how you can make changes to your hair products and your diet to have healthier, thicker hair. They’ll also be able to tell you which new looks are a good idea and what really won’t work! This can help give you the summer confidence boost you needed, and will be worth looking into for sure!

Dont Be Afraid To Swing Big

Finally, if you want to feel more confident in your look this summer, remember that a good look should make you feel happy. That means that you shouldn’t be afraid to make some major changes if that’s what you want! Summer is the perfect time to try something bold and different, from your jewellery to your footwear. So, if there’s something that you’ve always wanted to try or wear, why not give it a spin? The worst thing that’s going to happen is that you decide that maybe it wasn’t for you, but at least you tried it. You owe it to yourself to give it a go and find out what could happen.
