Sunglasses trend for this summer

Sun is brighter and brighter by the day. Spring is taking on and announcing summer at large. As you already know the sun can be beneficial in small quantities. It helps your skin supply of vitamin D and definitely improves your mood. However, if too exposed, your skin could have serious harm from it. Besides the usual skin protection creams, shades should be something to think about when protecting your eyes. They not only protect the eyes, but also prevent the creation of wrinkles around them...and if you add the great fashion statement you get by wearing simply can not leave your house without a good pair. And remember, no matter how trendy and chic and no matter how quality and expensive, the first rule when buying sunglasses is: make sure they fit and complement the shape of your face.

Here are some trendy tips for this summer season from Flare magazine. Take a look and get inspired.

Jeans, jeans, jeans!

I have to say that over the last couple of years I have been a little annoyed with denim. Price tags got so exorbitant, that it was commonplace to pay $300 or more for a pair of jeans, and quite frankly that is just insulting. There was nothing casual or cool about jeans, denim had lost its allure for me....but no longer! Fidelity, an awesome Canadian brand has peaked my interest with denim again; creative finishes without any bedazzling (thank goodness), super stylish cuts and a plethora of non-pant options....oh, and they don't break the bank. Denim is back, and it's fresh, fun, casual and cool, the way it should be.

Country Club Attire

Warmer weather means, more outdoor events! Many of the events are going to require “country club” attire. I remember the first time I received an invitation with this specific attire I was freaking out. What does this mean, polo’s and Khakis? This is why I decide to write about this, so no more girls have to freak out!

It is actually pretty simple, something a bit more dressy than every day cloths. Some things that are not acceptable are Jeans, t-shirts and flips flops.

There is also a difference during day and night,

During the day you can wear a cute sun dress or a long dress, also linen pants or a skirt would be fabulous.

If is a night event you can go a bit more dressy such as a wrap dress, and white cotton pants

I hope this helps you!
