A Fashionista’s Guide To Glow Back To School With Sun Tanning Lotion
I get it, going back to school is stressful. Diving head first into a new semester post-COVID can be even more intimidating than a usual school semester. It's not only the classes that seem daunting, but quarantine did a number on pretty much all of us. Going back into the social scene can be difficult and let's face it, we can no longer lounge around all day in our comfy PJs.
As the new semester rolls around quickly, we all realize pre-COVID clothes either no longer fit right or are no longer fashionable. If you didn't spend the last few weeks looking for back to school outfits, you might feel stuck wearing the few clothes in your closet that you still like. When it comes to school, you want clothes that you can feel comfortable in while still having a sense of style and individuality.
Presenting yourself well post-COVID for a new semester can be challenging. Personally- I know for me a self tanner can make me feel confident in just about any outfit. Some outfits accentuate a nice tan better than others. If you are already using sun tanning lotion but want to rock your amazing natural glow in new clothes we are here to share what the hot trends are right now for the Fall 2021 semester.
Everyone looks good in a good pair of denim jeans because it is extremely versatile and comes in so many styles. Whether your style is distressed, bleached, multicolored, or just a plain simple blue, the right pair of jeans can make all the difference in your wardrobe. To accentuate a fresh new layer of self tanner, try a light wash high waisted mom jean or a white straight leg jean. Paired with a cute top and some sneakers, this is a trend everyone of all ages can get on board with.
Say goodbye to the trendy neon colors that were popular last year and hello to light pastels. Pastels are not only for spring, they are a new year round trend that makes a bronze tan pop. These colors will highlight you in a totally new and unexpected way. If you are intimidated by adding colors to your wardrobe, pastels are a great place to start. It could be a pastel patterned pants, or a simple lilac top, we know with an amazing natural bronze self-tan you’ll be sure to stand out.
As neutral colors are always fashionable, hot new trends show different ways to wear them and style them. Mixing and matching neutrals throughout your outfit is hotter now than ever. My favorite part about neutral colors is that they accentuate you instead of washing you out. To look super tan, try a neutral color that is 2-3 shades lighter than your skin tone and let the self-tanning magic radiate your skin.
Okay yes this technically can be PJs too, but an oversized T-shirt with biker shorts is the hot new casual. As this look is both effortless and iconic, you are sure to be turning heads without compromising your comfort. If the biker short look is too casual for your taste, try pairing your oversized T-shirt with a maxi skirt or some high waisted jeans. Adding accessories can also dress up any casual look to make you look like a rockstar.
As these bad boys never went out of style, it might be time to dust them off. As much as these shoes are a staple and can make your legs seem ultra-dark, there is nothing like a fresh pair of white sneakers to make your tan POP. Platformed shoes are the new sneaker trend, try a pair of white sneakers with a little extra height. Not only are they super comfortable, but a white pair of sneakers go with just about anything and everything- score! With a fresh pair of white sneakers you’ll be ready to strut around campus.
A small dainty necklace or bracelet can transform an ordinary outfit to an extraordinary one. The small details are always the difference, as it gives you a chance to show your personality and individuality especially for those of you who must comply with strict dress codes. For people who are all about accessories, dainty jewelry is a must for every-day looks. Try layering a necklace with a few different dainty chains to show off your original style. To try something different and new, consider adding a toe ring or anklet to wear with sandals. As there are so many different types of jewelry, I would start by deciding what feature you would like to accentuate and then looking for jewelry that would serve that purpose.
