Summer Styling Tips

As summer heats up we all tend to go a bit more bare — sleeveless tops and dresses, leg-baring skirts and shorts, and lightweight body skimming fabrics — anything to help us keep cool! But it's also important to stay stylish during these hot summer months as well. Check out these great summer styling tips from A-List Hollywood Stylist, Erin Walsh.

Your clothes will always look better if you feel beautiful and confident in them. As a fashion stylist, I know that sleeveless can often feel scary and make women feel vulnerable or exposed; however the Dove Advanced Care product line provides softer, smoother underarms in just 3 days, so that all women can feel confident going sleeveless.

Trapeze cut shirts and dresses look great on every body type and are great for the summer season. Pair your top with a cropped pant that accentuates the smallest part of your ankle and a little heel – even 1 inch is perfect!

Try a denim on denim look this season. No need to worry about the pieces matching – anything goes!

An all-white look or mixed neutrals looks great on everyone. Every woman should own a nice white blouse. It’s a piece that will never go out of style, and also make you look put together.

Dual-purpose items are perfect for the summertime. I love boxy sleeveless shirts that hit around the hip bone. They are a throwback to the ‘60s, and are great to wear with a cute pair of cropped jeans or perfect to throw over a bathing suit at the beach. I am also a big fan of sleeveless shirt dresses and halter tops because they look great on everyone and can be dressed up or dressed down!

I’m not sure there are any dos and don’ts to wearing sleeveless. You can’t dictate style to someone. It’s really more about how the individual wears an item. Every fabric hangs differently and every silhouette fits differently. When you choose a sleeveless style, it should project confidence in your body stature and posture.

For petite women who would like to create the appearance of more broad, square shoulders, it would be better to wear a sleeveless top that highlights the collarbone. Cap sleeves can also do this for petite women. If a woman has broader shoulders, I would recommend a strapless cut.

My summer essentials include: sunscreen, Dove Advanced Care Deodorant (I like the Nourished Beauty fragrance), and lip balm with an SPF.

I think it is fun to experiment with sunglasses during the summer season. Sunglasses look good on anyone, and there are so many styles so you can buy them to match your personality.

It’s definitely better to wear loose clothing in the summer. In addition, fabrics like silk, cotton, and linen are key for this season. It’s also important to think about undergarments, too. You don’t want to be wearing a lot of layers when it’s super-hot outside!

Lightweight cardigans and summer scarves are my best friend during this season. I always have them with me when I am traveling. I prefer to buy them in semi-neutral colors, such as ivory.

It can be nice to wear your hair up when you are wearing sleeveless - to show off your shoulders and arms. Whether you have your hair up or down though, it goes back to personal style and how you feel most comfortable. They key is to project confidence.

Some classic summer staples that every woman should have in her wardrobe are: a crisp white blouse, a lightweight summer scarf (I like neutral colors), and a sundress that isn’t too tight fitting. I am also a big fan of Greek/Bohemian inspired sandals – such a fun way to add style to your look this summer season!

Thanks to Erin Walsh for these fun summer styling tips!

Master Summer Beauty With These Must-Have Essentials

WHAT THEY ARE: The three beauty items you’ll want to stock up on this season. You’re finally facing a whole new season of beach days, rooftop lounging, and outdoor cookouts, so it’s time to switch out your old winter beauty standbys. Beauty in the heat is all about keeping it fresh–faced, bright, and totally effortless. These three essentials from Rimmel, NYC New York Color, and Sally Hansen are here to help you do just that.

  Rimmel London BB Cream Matte: With summer humidity and stickiness comes dreaded shine. Thankfully, this multitasking BB Cream offers all–day shine control with its ultra–effective mattifying powders that prevent the need for blotting and retouching through the day. Keep skin flawless without heavyweight foundation. After all, that’s the last thing you want to put on your face when you’re sweltering in heat. Instead, the lightweight BB Cream Matte offers nine essential skin–perfecting benefits in one for 100% natural looking coverage and easy blending. The formula also helps absorb sebum, tighten pores, and prevent clogged pores that plague skin during the summer, rebalancing oily skin with Bamboo Powder, Kaolin Clay, Witch Hazel, Algae, and Salicylic Acid. It even offers SPF 15 for every day sun protection.
  Sally Hansen Ouch–Relief Wax Strip Kit: Bare it all at the beach this summer–but try this easy, ouch–less at–home wax kit first. Perfect for even first–time wax users, the kit features breakthrough Pain–Relief TechnologyTM Pre–Wax Wipes that deliver pain–reducing Benzocaine directly to the skin for hair removal prep. The Pre–Waxed Cloth Strips contour perfectly to skin, cleanly removing hair from the face and bikini line for soft, smooth skin that lasts for up to eight weeks. Rid yourself of unwanted hair, then use the included Azulene Finishing Oil to remove excess wax and seal in moisture.
  NYC New York Color Expert Last Lip Color: Effortlessly add a bold swipe of color to your summer-look with these velvety smooth, long–lasting lipsticks. Available in a range of attention–grabbing colors, you can get a whole wardrobe of summer-bright lip shades with these moisturizing lipsticks that glide onto lips for a soft finish that never feels sticky or slick. Lasting through pool days and BBQs, the lipsticks hydrate and condition. Keep the rest of your look ultra–simple and say it all with your lips.

Housed in a convenient roll-on bottle, the formula is easy for application on the go and  is always safe and suitable for even the most delicate skin.

Celeb Hair Trend We Love: The Bob

Summer is heating up and we’ve been noticing our favorite celebs cooling down by chopping off their long locks in favor of the eternally stylish summer style: the bob. This season’s version is relaxed, easy and full of texture, keeping this look effortlessly chic. We’ve put together some tips from Keratin Complex to get the look:

Keep your bob from looking flat and lifeless with Vita Volume Boosting Foam. This non-greasy, moisturizing foam lifts the hair from root to tip for full blown body, volume and bounce while protecting hair from damage and delivering serious shine. Shake well before applying to towel-dried hair and styling.

Use Straight Day Styling Spray to get a stylish, sexy look. Spritz into wet or dry hair to add softness, shine, and manageability to the hair and tame flyaways and frizz.

Finish the look off with a mist of Flex Flow Flexible Shaping Hairspray before stepping out the door. The lightweight hairspray provides a light, brushable hold to secure waves like Kaley Cuoco and Jennifer Lawrence, and fights static flyaways for smooth and shine locks like similar to Mindy Kaling and Taylor Swift.


Get the Look: Keri Russell at Critic's Choice Awards

Hitting the red carpet for the 2014 Critic's Choice Awards recently, Keri Russell arrived looking stunning in a bold gown, with her hair softly swept to the side.

"I was inspired by the structure and colors of her dress. She wanted to keep her hair loose with soft waves and her makeup dewy, with flushed cheeks and a bright lip. We kept her eyes minimal, but with lots of lashes,” says makeup artist Mai Quynh.

Quynh started off by moisturizing her face. "Then, I applied Pür Minerals Color Correcting Primer in Illuminate & Glow to her skin."

Next, she applied Pür Minerals 4-in-1 Liquid Foundation in Light Tan to her skin with a dusting of the Pür Minerals 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup Foundation on top to finish the flawless look, followed by concealer underneath the eyes.

Quynh then applied a cream blush, loose powder and one more shade, to add to the look. Quynh applied a bronze, shimmery shadow to the eyelids. "Then, I applied two coats of Pür Minerals Big Look Mascara in Black to her top and bottom lashes." Lastly, she applied Pür Minerals Daredevil Gloss Stick to her lips.

MAFIA Bags Bring Recycled Sail Production to U.S.

This summer, check out MAFIA Bags, an eco-friendly design and manufacturing company specializing in handmade backpacks, totes, bags and accessories made from recycled sails.

Founded in 2012 in Buenos Aires, Argentina, MAFIA Bags is thrilled to expand into the United States, opening its flagship U.S. facility in San Francisco, where all products will be locally produced in SF.

MAFIA Bags is the brainchild of brother-sister duo Marcos and Paz Mafia, who wanted to share their passion for nature, appreciation for living a simple life, and commitment to making a social impact with others. At just 25 years old, Marcos is an accomplished and award-winning professional kitesurfer who is grateful for all that life and the ocean have given him. MAFIA is his way of returning the favor to nature.

Sunscreens for People Who Hate Sunscreen

We all know the importance of protecting skin from damaging sun rays all year long, but more than a few of us are guilty of skipping the SPF on occasion. Luckily, we have some great options to protect your skin even if you can’t stand wearing sunscreen:

  • If you don’t dare risk ruining your flawless makeup to reapply SPF, try GOLDFADEN MD Sun Visor or glō minerals’ Protecting Powder. Sun Visor’s oil free, lightweight formula applies in an ultra-fine mist for easy reapplication even over makeup, and Protecting Powder is a finishing powder that doubles as SPF.
  • If you have oily skin and sunscreen only adds to the shine, try glō minerals’ Oil Free SPF 40+ for heavy duty protection in a quick-absorbing formula.
  • For outdoor sports or beach days when sunscreen just washes off, use glō therapeutics’ Water Resistant Facial SPF 45 to keep protected even in the wettest conditions.
  • If applying sunscreen is just one more step that you don’t have time for in your morning routine, combine SPF and foundation into one with glō therapeutics’ Moisturizing Tint SPF 30+ which includes a hint of sheer color to even skin tons while protecting it from the sun to keep it naturally gorgeous.
