3 Quick and Easy Summer Styling Ideas

3 Quick and Easy Summer Styling Ideas

1. Swim with a pair of extravagant earrings

...proverbially dangling while you dip. Ideally, they're extravagant enough to be luxurious and unexpected yet not so extravagant that you'll be devastated to lose one in the sea. If you can arrange this aquatic accessories adventure to take place in Ischia, as Maria Callas did in 1956, even better. 

 

2. Carry a fan.

Genuinely, I'm surprised more people don't. They're glamorous, easy to carry around, and offer a cooling solution that is simultaneously environmentally friendly and arm sculpting. Could a fan be the world's greatest summer accessory?  

 

3. Wear something flowy on a bike. 

I've mentioned my excitement around the notion of wafting while you move as a bona fide summer pastime. In the latest edition of this thought, it occurred to me: why wait for a summer breeze to come to you? On a bike, you can make your wafting moment any time you like. Feeling emboldened? Drape your summer hat over your handlebars and voila! Glamour on two wheels.
