Statement accessories, printed shorts and matchy-matchy outfits are must-haves for your summer wardrobe. Pair the looks with pastel stockings and socks, trendy backpacks and sexy courts shoes. Keep your make-up simple or experiment with various stripes and patterns of cake glitter on your lips and face. Summer is for having fun at the beach and with your clothes. Do wear outfits in matching fabrics and colours, metallic fabrics such as silver, and gold add an instant glamour and a luminous feel to any look.

The Top 3 fashion Do's for the summer
Over-dessing / under-dressing: Wearing skin flashing clothing is what summer is about, however, too much skin can be a putt-off. Keep it sexy but classy. Light knits and bomber jackets are the perfect accessory for those chilly summer days.
Footwear: Most of us having been living in closed shoes right through winter. Allow your
feet to breathe in elegant sandals, some classy evening stilettos and some Converse for long walks and dancing.
Do make sure your swimwear purchase is the right fit. Nothing looks bad than
swimwear that ruins your shape and looks saggy; if it’s too tight you are revealing way too much.
