How to show off skin tastefully this summer

by VAIVAIMAGAZINE • 29 Jun 2016

When it comes to summer, there’s no doubt we love to show a little skin, courtesy of shoulder-baring pieces, crop tops or leggy looks to help us keep cool this season. But it’s not exactly easy to beat the heat in a tasteful manner.

Some days we just want to thrown on a tank and daisy dukes and call it a day. Thankfully, with the abundance of street style and red carpet inspo to look through, we don’t have to resort to the summer basics. But sometimes we just need some real girl advice.

Enter: Style Panel. To make sure we keep our style in check and chic this summer, we rallied up our go-to bloggers to share their secrets on how to show skin tastefully this season. Flip through for 14 Style Panel-approved tips.

The hot summer days are finally here, so it’s about time to show some skin that has been hidden for such a long time.

An off-the-shoulder top, a fave of the season, is actually the best way to show a bit of skin without exposing too much. It’s also appropriate at any age and suits any body shape. For summer, think light and airy, like this flirty floral top. To add an elegant but playful vibe to the shoulder-baring top, I paired it with a feminine white skirt and colourful chunky heel sandals.

My go-to item for a hot summer day is a simple, lightweight slip dress. I love a good V-neck line and thigh slits, and this metallic, champagne-coloured Zara slip dress has everything. Showing a little bit of leg and décolletage is the perfect amount about of skin that I can show off without feeling too naked. I already started living in slip dresses and I love that tasteful sexy vibe it gives for summer.

Exploring Burano and Murano in Venice was high up on my list and I specifically packed this striped Caroline Constas Lena dress for my trip to Venice. I wore it with a striped fedora hat that I bought from a street vendor before we took a ferry to Burano.

Since we were in Venice for almost a week we went back to Burano then to Murano wear they blow glasses (so many beautiful chandeliers) and this time since it was much warmer than the other day, I wore a two piece set from Privacy Please.
