Summer Fashion Must-Have's

Yesterday, I post my summer beauty must-have’s. This post will be about my fashion must-have’s. Of course, I must have one right? This wouldn’t be called Fashiometics without my take in fashion must-have’s. I hope you enjoy this post! :)

1. Sunglasses — I cannot reiterate this anymore. I did many posts about sunglasses ever since I started this blog. This is my ultimate must-have for summer! I rarely wear sunglasses in the winter since it’s usually cloudy or snowing here in the Mid-Atlantic.

2. Colorful Accessories — I wasn’t really into accessories since last year and when I learned how to balance my accessories — I went on an accessory craze. All I wanted to buy for the whole month was accessories. At first, I was into silver accessories, but now I learned how to experiment with different colors so they also fall into my summer fashion must-have’s!

3. Beach Bags — I love going to the beach! It always make me feel serene, and of course, I wouldn’t go to the beach without my beach bag! Summer is the only time I could take out my beach bags since I don’t use them at school. Maybe I should start doing that, no?

4. Dresses — Two summers ago, I only had three dress. I never really liked wearing dresses until this winter. Ever since the dress frenzy kicked in, I’ve been buying dresses non-stop. Once, I went to Target and came home with 3 new dresses! Now I have more than 10! Yea, it’s not really an addition — it’s more of an addiction! :D

This post will be quick! I just want to share to you what I found at Forever 21 two days ago. I’ve written a post about sunglasses; I stated that own a lot of sunglasses! Now, I own at least 10 sunglasses and 90% of them are from Forever 21.

I’m here to tell you that I found some bright colored sunglasses at a Forever 21 store for $1.50! Yes, one dollar and fifty cents!! I hope you’re as excited as me when I found these in the store. I actually bought all four colors they have: pink, orange, red, and white. I know they have it in blue, too, but I haven’t seen them yet. I only have the pink and orange with me right now, so here’s a picture:

So, what do you think? Do you like these sunglasses? Would you buy them? Let me know in the comments below! :)

Disclaimer: All products were purchased by me.

For the next few weeks, I will be posting a series of a must-have trends for the summer. Today I will discuss about a basic accessory that will yield a huge effect on your wardrobe!

For this post, I will focus on sunglasses. There are many different styles, brands, and prices of sunglasses in the market. There are the $6 sunglasses from Forever 21, $100-$300 sunglasses with brand names like Ray-ban, Carrera, Marc Jacobs, Chanel, etc. Personally, as a college student on a budget, I love Forever 21′s $6 sunglasses! Heck, I have 7 of them – different kinds and colors. If you’re an Asian like me, and are not blessed with a high-bridged nose (I cannot wear the modified Ray-ban wayfarers to save my life!), make sure you try on the sunglasses before buying them. I do not recommend buying sunglasses on-line unless you have been in the store and personally tried the sunglasses on.

One tip I received from my aunt was whenever you’re trying on sunglasses, make sure there aren’t any gaps on the bridge of your nose that could make the sunglasses look awkward on your face. Instead of improving your face shape and/or your wardrobe, it will do the opposite. We don’t want awkward pictures during our summer vacation, do we?

And of course, the most famous rules:

If you have a round face, look for sunglasses with squared edges. Same goes with square faces, you should find sunglasses with more rounded corners to balance out your face shape. As for heart-shaped faces, the best bet is to go with aviator sunglasses (Sarah Jessica Parker, anyone?). For the oval-shaped faces, you can pretty much wear anything!

Of course, rules are meant to be broken. If you’re like me, and you wear pretty much any style and color of sunglasses, even if your face isn’t oval-shaped, kudos to you!
