Just like the very flavour of summer - blended in a drink altogether, the fashion for summer of 2019 is a perfect mixture of brights, pastels, ease, glams and comfort! The summer fashion trends for women include the classic and elegant fashion styles of trousers and blazers, maxi dresses, slip dresses, structured shirts, pleated skirts and milkmaid tops, with minimalistic styles when it comes to bags and ease and comfort for shoes. The effortless path to exploring the best complimenting shoes for the attires stops at the vast category of sandals, sliders, mules and clogs. The bags as to be considered the value-added accessories are in fashion with shades of blue and beige in clutch bags and tote bags whereas the chic shade of black in the classic backpacks!

Easy Sneakers And Backpacks

Trainers and backpack paired with denim shorts or jeans is the ultimate king of comfort and classic summer appeal. The trainers have been in trend since last year and haven’t really gone out. Trainers in white and beige are perfect summer attire with ease and comfort fused with style, and the glam of prints. The graphic details added, is the millennial twist to the modern yet chic trainer design. When paired with milkmaid tops of bright shades and denim shorts or jeans or a summer dress, trainers can be encorporated into a casual outfit for the beach or even a day out shopping!

Sandals And Clutch Bags

Sandals are the ultimate all-rounder for fashion trends in shoes, with heeled sandals and strappy sandals in black, glimmers of metallic and jewels are perfect alternatives for the less comfortable stilettos and high heels! Small heeled sandals in black are perfect for formal as well as semi-formal party settings, and the flat strap sandals in gold and silver, glammed with jewels are perfect for a relaxed party attire, paired with playsuits or maxi dresses. The strappy heeled sandals in metallic shades also offer a complimenting look to midi dresses or split skirts and dresses as well. Sandals paired with a clutch bag is a multi-purpose duo for many settings!

Sliders And Mules

Sliders and mules are the ultimate casual attire when it comes to dressing for the summer season. The sliders in tan shades offer a perfect compliment to the classic pleated skirt-structured shirt duo this summer. Mules in black with kitten heels, provide comfort and stylish design to the vintage checked blazer-suit outfit for professional as well as casual days-out. Alternatively, brightly coloured mules worn with a simple dress, or coupled with baggy jeans and a thin knit top, offer that vintage look. Sliders and mules are perfect example of summer fashion which is easy and comfortable, yet still having high-end fashion appeal.

My beach bag essentials

beachbag

Gosh Cosmetics – Giant Sun powder

I absolutely love this product, it is a giant and I have two of them and I have hardly scratched the surface of the one. It give a beautiful subtle glow and works great as an eye shadow as well.

Baby Oil

There is tons of top oils on the market but my favourite is baby oil, it leaves my skin super soft and well moisturised. I put it on my skin with it before I shower for baby soft skin. It also works great as a make-up remover.

Pantene curl definer mouse

I love mousse on my hair, as I find it softer then gel and the mousse gives great curl definition and leaves my hair with less frizz.

Leave-in conditioner & water mix

To give my hair that added moisture during the hot days lazing on the beach. Make your own by mixing some of your favourite leave-in conditioner with water in a spritz bottle, carry it in your bag and spritz as needed.

Wide tooth comb

As soon as water hits my hair it goes into coily curls so a wide tooth, is a must to safely detangle my curls

W7 Lipstick –Sandpiper

This is from their Full Colour range and yes it is defiantly full colour, my lips POP when I put this colour on it. A beautiful hot pink that goes stunning with the soft glow of the giant sun powder.

P.S I LOVE YOU – nail polish

I have a whole collection of the P.S I LOVE YOU nail polish range, but currently I am loving the pinks, the light pink and the neon pink being my favs. Light pink for the nails and neon for my toes.

Sunglasses

Protect your eyes against the sun's UV rays just make sure that you pick a pair that suits your face shape.
