These ladies have gone for the simple yet beautifully plain looking dresses. With the bold solid colours you are able to match any accessory with them. They are demonstrating this wonderfully with the heels, hats and jewellery. These ladies have a smart mind wearing thin jackets to keep the chilled air off them in spring time, even in the height of summer it’s always a good idea to take a thin jacket with you incase the typical British weather takes a turn for the worse.

Festival fashion styles

The festival season is fast approaching and through all the partying, you want an outfit that will keep you cool and fashionable. Shorts are a great way to keep yourself cool but when the traditional British summer arrives and the weather suddenly takes a turn for the worst, you’ll have to throw on those wellies and then that look isn’t so fashionable anymore! However in some cases this look is allowed and seeing as this is the typical festival look, it is a great idea in this scenario. Festivals are known for being bright and colourful so dig out your brightest tops and go bright or go home! Bright bodypaint is another festival essential that is not to be missed so go crazy and splash that glitter paint.img_7111

Now do we have any girls with long hair? Then you may want to think of pinning it up, as you will get very hot and you will want to stay as cool as possible, plus no girl wants their hair to get all sweaty.

Here are a few ideas for some easy hair ups:

This style is a simple plait, you can do this to pretty much all types of hair and you don’t need much time or too many hair products. Overall this is great for festivals as it is an easy messy look.

You may also want to try a nice and simple bun, this allows you to get all your hair up and off of your skin so you can start dancing to that funky house number with your pals! Different styles of buns will take different amounts of time and may need different hair products, this means that you will either have to put it up into a messy bun or take the time and create a neat bun.beautiful-1846171_1920

Hopefully I have given you some handy fashion tips so you can dance that summer festival away!

Finding the right nail colour for you

Choosing the right nail colour is a tricky business because you want to compliment your skin tone and style. Fairer skin tones look better with dark colours and darker skin tones look better with lighter colours. Now if you’re lucky enough to have an olive skin tone, you can get away with just about any colour of polish.

Some people may match their make up to their nail colour. You could match both your eye shadow or lipstick with a similar shade to your nail polish but it is important not to look too tacky with the exact same shade. Personally I wouldn’t match my make up to my nails but each individual knows what looks good on them.

Many stylists say that your nail colour should never match your outfit, while many other stylists say that your nails should match your outfit. When I go somewhere important I always make sure that my nails match my outfit. You can match them to a shade similar to a specific item that you’re wearing like your shoes or purse, I personally match my nails to my dresses that I wear. Trust your instincts when choosing your outfit and nail colour. Be considerate about the occasion that you’re attending. If you’re going to an important business meeting you don’t want to be having bright nails, I don’t think your colleague’s will appreciate your nails as much as you do. However if you’re going for a night out be daring and paint the town red.

Seasons play a big part when choosing the colour of your nails as don’t want your nails too bright or too bland for the season. During the summer months the weather is a lot hotter, the days are longer and the festival season is in full swing so always choose a bright colour to match. When Autumn approaches you want to start dulling down your nails and go for some oranges and browns to go with the colour of the leaves that as falling off the trees. During the harsh Winter months where the days are darker, you want to go for some dark and dull colours like dark reds and neutral colours. During the festive season your could also do Christmas themed nails. On the run up to Summer through Spring you want to start brightening back up your nails but not too bright as you always build up to the main event which so happens to be Summer.
