Summer has officially arrived and we’re ready to make the most of it. There’s a heatwave on the horizon which means that our #BellaBabes will be keen to show off their gorgeous golden glows to the max. As a stylish bunch, our girls know how to rock this season’s most coveted trends, so if you’re wondering which style staples to snap up this season, you’re in for a treat. Here, we share the key pieces longing to fill your wardrobes, all of which are perfect for showing off your Bellamianta tan, of course.
The shift dress
This summer we’re throwing it back to the 90s, thanks to the classic shift dress. The high street is awash with this silhouette and we couldn’t be happier about it. The perfect day to night look, simply pop a tee on underneath during the day and pair with trainers for a laidback approach. Then, as the sun sets, ditch the tee, pop on some heels and statement jewellery for a stylish look that can do no wrong. Dare to go a step further like @maurahiggins and @sophie_vavasseur in our campaign shoot and opt for silk numbers for lingerie vibes.
The two-piece suit
Coordinating suits are one of this season’s hottest offerings and Bella Babe @ohsofemme nails it here, as always. Proving that chic suits aren’t just for the boardroom, Ashlee has chosen a jacket and shorts combo, showing off her flawlessly tanned pins. To complete the look, pop on trainers and swag some arm candy thanks to an oversized bag and you’re all set for whatever the day has in store.
The white dress
The not-so-secret top tip to really highlighting a killer tan is to wear all white, just like @ursulavalentine. White definitely is the new black, and it’s the perfect neutral for summer. Make sure your tan is on point thanks to our Ultra Dark Self Tanning Tinted Mousse. And to really elevate it, opt for golden goddess vibes with our new Skin Perfecting Illuminating Bronzing Powder for photo ready skin that calls for #nofilter.
The cut off shorts
This style staple makes a welcome return every summer and @maurahiggins effortlessly shows us how it’s done. Get in on those festival vibes by pairing yours with a cute crop top to really show off your tan. The thing we love about cut offs is that the outfit options are endless. Pair with a tee or chic shirt by day for Daisy Duke vibes, or opt for a corset and heels for those spectacular nights out on the town.
The animal print
A carry over from spring, animal prints are set to reign supreme this summer and thanks to @misslarapara, this trend is definitely on our most-wanted list. From snake to zebra, leopard and cheetah, it’s a very fashionable jungle out there. We love how Lara teams hers with a simple vest to allow the print to take centre stage. Animal prints are perfect for standing out from the crowd on those hot summer nights so this style is a winner for sure.
The Bardot playsuit
How cute is Bellamianta ambassador @rebecca_mckinney1 in this Bardot style playsuit?! The décolletage is one of the sexiest parts of the body and this style shows it off to the maximum. There’s no style scenario that the playsuit doesn’t work for, proving its place in both the casual and occasionwear categories. If this summer sees you taking a trip abroad, the Bardot jumpsuit is a perfect alternative to dresses.
Whichever trend you choose to get on board with this summer, make sure your tan complements your look, thanks to Bellamianta.
