If you’re looking for some of the summer essentials you need to keep going this season, you’ve come to the right place. From fashion, to accessories, to health and beauty needs, this year it’s all about keeping it casual and comfortable.
Summer Essentials You’ll Need
#1 – Kaftans
Kaftans will keep you feeling cool when the temperatures soar. It’s definitely one of this year’s summer essentials with temperatures soaring. These are available in a wide range of designs and styles that suit your personality and budget, with everything from floral prints to more simple designs.
When you order a kaftan from a UK catalogue, you get loads of products to choose from, and you can have your order delivered to your door, saving you hassle. But that’s not all. Many retailers let you spread the cost of your purchase when you open a new credit account with the company. Clothes retailers like Next and La Redoute let you make repayments for female fashion online or over the phone, allowing you to budget more effectively.
#2 – Hats
Another one of the summer essentials for 2016 is hats. Look for something that provides you with protection from the sun’s UV rays without compromising on your personal style. From baseball caps to trilbys, you’ll find a hat that complements the rest of your summer wardrobe.
A UK catalogue provides endless options and you have the option of using promo codes to save money on your items or shipping. You can also sign up to a retailer’s social media accounts or mailing list to reap off the savings.
#3 – Shades
Shades are perennial staples of summer wardrobes up and down the country. If you have a round face, see which styles would best suit your face before deciding on a style.
#4 – Jeggings
While not suitable for all summer weather, jeggings are great for cooler temperatures and come in a range of styles that you’ll love. Some of the biggest catalogue companies like Very and Simply Be have clothes like jeggings in sizes that you won’t always find on the UK high street, and when you open a new credit account, you could bag a bargain.
Many retailers provide welcome discounts for new customers who have never used their services before. This could be as much as 30 percent off your first order in some cases when you open a new credit account online, saving you a significant amount of cash.
#5 – Shiny Boat Shoes
When you want comfy shoes that are not sandals in the summer, think boat shoes. Not just any boat shoes.
These beauties made by Vans come in gold! The Vans Chauffette leather in metallic gold are beach ready style with a classic look that’s perfect for any stylish gal.
I’m absolutely in love with their avant garde style. Not only that, they contain a comfort component in the insole to keep your feet feeling good all day.
They’re the type of shoes you can easily wear on strolls in the city, or on casual Fridays in the office. Even with a dress, skirt, or any evening plans you may have, these Vans are your best friend.
#6 – Practical Cargo Shorts
When your man has more to hold than his pants have to offer (keep it clean ladies, this is a PG blog), these cargo shorts sure come in handy. With eight pockets, the Wyckoff cargo shorts combines practicality and style all in one. It’s lightweight and offers UV protection too!
#7 – Performance T-shirt
The warm weather signals that time of year to update your workout gear. So for the guys, the Barren performance t-shirt is the perfect purchase because it will keep you dry and comfortable no matter what activity you’re keeping yourself busy with.
This versatile v-neck, made with lightweight melange jersey, will keep you looking and feeling cool. It’s anti-static, wind resistant, stretches while keeping its shape, and best of all, it draws sweat off.
#8 – Sunscreen for Your Face
Did you know that most people are still not wearing sunscreen and if they are, they aren’t wearing it enough?I wasn’t wearing any neither, until I got called on by one of my friends asking me if I had a wish to age quicker….
Save your skin this summer! Coppertone Clearlysheer for Beach and Pool SPF 50 Face Lotion delivers trusted broad spectrum protection in delightfully light, refreshing formulas that barely leave a trace on the skin. It absorbs quickly, feels clean and light on the skin. It won’t clog pores or cause breakouts.
#9 – Shoe Pads
In summer, we all like to wear are gorgeous heels and show off our legs. Sometimes those beauties can be so painful. That’s why I recommend (and wear in most of my heels) Dr. Scholl’s for her ball of foot cushion.
They are incredibly comfortable and make it a breeze to wear even the most killer pair of heels you own.
#10 – Foot Relief
With the summer time comes more physical activities and walking, which may naturally lead to more foot aches. Luckily, Performance Foot Topricin topical anti-inflammatory joint and arthritis pain relief cream helps relieve this pain and is a great part of summer essentials. It’s safe and effective for:
- leg cramps
- nerve pain
- plantar fasciitis
- achilles tendonitis
- heel, foot and ankle pain
- joint pain in the toes and feet
- relieves itching, cracking of the skin which you may get from callous.
