Summer is the season with the most fun in the sun. The days are longer, the nights are warmer, and it’s a great time to get out there and be active. Whether it’s summer-specific workouts like swimming, beach volleyball, or playing with your kids at the pool or on the beach, your summer activities can be varied and spontaneous. With the right outfit, you can be set for everything your day could possibly throw at you. With these five outfits, you’ll be prepared, confident, and stylish for whatever you’re getting into this summer.
Nothing says summer like a long, hot beach day. Whether you’re taking a full-blown family vacation down the shore or playing with kids on the banks of a river or lake, summer is a time for water, and your outfit will need to be waterproof or at least water-friendly. For a classic beach day, go with a swimsuit that promotes wearability—you’ll want to be comfortable and supported for marathon days in the sand and surf. Even if you stay out of the water, a swimsuit will breathe easily and help keep you cool under the hottest sun rays. If you’re prone to skin irritation or sunburn, protect your sensitive skin with UV swimsuits in addition to sunscreen for that extra boost of sun coverage and protection. Pair your swimsuit with a beach cover-up or sundress to take the outfit from the beach to the mainland. The better you feel, the better you’ll look, so get the swimsuit that’s perfect for you and soak up the sun.
For a night out with your special someone, you’ll want to look and feel good. Comfortable clothes are crucial for this outing, but you still want to look your best for your sweetheart. Whether you go casual or fancy for your date, get the perfect outfit by pairing a cotton dress with a light jacket for cooler summer evenings on the town. Dress the look up or down with the jacket choice; think denim for casual and a blazer or sweater for dressier special occasions. Accessories will also help set the tone of this outfit for whatever your night out entails. Jewelry, shoes, and your hairstyle can all be planned around a comfortable dress for the best date outfit ever. So grab your date and go out with the confidence that your outfit is appropriate, cute, and stylish for your perfect date night.
Summer workouts can be radically different from winter ones. The weather is hotter, the days are longer, and more sun means more time outside to do activities that otherwise might be indoors at the gym. From swimming to team sports, you may find yourself doing more outdoor activities that are out of your routine or comfort zone. There’s no need to worry about fitting in; you can do any exercise with the right clothes, no matter how familiar or foreign. For water sports, go with a swimsuit that provides support and coverage for long term. You’ll need to be free to swim and move comfortably and freely while still wearing the suit for hours at a time.
For on-the-beach sports like volleyball or baseball, you’ll need activewear to keep you cool through the beating sun and free to move comfortably whether you’re running, catching, jumping, etc. Waterproof and water-compatible outfits are great for these activities too! A swimdress with a lot of support could become your new go-to athletic wear!
These days, with hectic schedules and busy lives, it can be rare to get all your friends together for a night out. But when you do, it can be really special. For a Girl’s Night Out, you’ll need an outfit that is cute and comfy for dancing, laughing, and spending time with your girls. You’ll also need a fabulously stylish look to impress them and keep you moving and grooving all night long. A classic black dress is the perfect choice for this occasion. Black is scientifically proven to make you appear thinner, and everyone looks good in black. Sometimes a classic is a classic for a reason, and a LBD with jewelry and comfortable, cute shoes will be the perfect fit for your night on the town with your ladies.
When a new season comes, people love to clean house, both literally and figuratively. Call it an overstay of spring cleaning or the purging of allergens after a long spring, but cleaning your house each season will help your home stay refreshed and comfortable for your family, roommates, kids, pets, and whoever else lives there. For summer chores, make sure you pick an outfit that keeps you cool and comfortable in higher temperatures. Cleaning is a lot of work! Wear activewear or athletic shorts because you will absolutely break a sweat while sprucing up your home. You’ll need to move comfortably and freely to get into all those nooks and crannies where dust and dirt hide. It’s dirty work, but when you’re done, your house will feel and look wonderful.
Whatever you’re getting into this summer, these outfits will prepare you to look and feel great all season long. For special summer memories you’ll never forget, get dressed and get out there to soak up the sun and have your best summer ever.
