A Chic Straw Hat
You may have a fresh swimsuit on check and your beach bag ready to go, but you aren’t exactly set for the season without a stylish hat. Hats are an important staple for the summer season, since they help to shield us from the sun, but they also make for an excellent addition to any outfit. Straw hats are one of this season’s trends, not only to keep you stylish and also protected you from the strong UV rays during the hot summer months. Here you’ll find a style for you that will top off any look with an easy-breezy edge.
A One-piece swimsuit

Is there a makeup product more beloved than lipstick? The lipsticks that are compulsory in your weekender bag this summer are those with electric orange, fruity pink and rosy nude.
Electric orange is difficult to wear for those who have fair skin or skin that is prone to redness but it’s a good choice if you have olive, tanned or dark skin. This is the perfect color for your lips especially after sunbathing.
Fruity pink is inspired by some of the summer sweets: watermelon, strawberry and raspberry. This color works on all skin tones so it must be in your weekender bag!
Rosy nude is a color which you can wear at any time of the year but the effect is awesome if it is paired with golden glowing skin which is the skin color after tanning under the sun.
Electric orange – Lancome Matte Shaker High Pigment Liquid Lipstick
Fruity pink – Dior Addict Lip Tattoo in Natural Cherry
Rosy nude – Maybelline Color-Sensational Inti-Matte Nudes in Toasted Truffle
