9 ways to glam up your summer


 
Need some inspiration to amp up your summer style? We’ve got nine killer ideas to transform any blah look (or boring afternoon) into a totally brilliant expression of Y-O-U. The best part? We’re getting your besties in on the fun!

 

Treat your friends to a spa day. We’re talking manis, pedis and face masks, beauty mavens! Check out our 5 steps to the perfect pedicure and our favorite homemade spa recipes.

 

Play dress up. A lot of department stores are still stocked with prom season leftovers. Visit the closet one with your sistahs and try on the best (and worst) dresses you can find.

 

Buy some beads at an arts and crafts store and make some jewelry! You could even sell it around the neighborhood for a little extra spending money, or to support a charity. CLICK HERE for our favorite how-tos.

 

Get a new haircut. Chop off those dead ends that are weighing you down and keep cool with a shortened summer style. Just wanna refresh your current ‘do? We’ve got ideas for that, too!

 

Hold a clothes swap at your casa. Tell your girlies to bring over some clothes they don’t want anymore and do a big switch. You’ll get tons of cute free clothes and accessories without opening your wallet. We’re telling you how!

 

Try to recreate affordable versions of outfits you like in magazines. Tear out your favorite look, pull open your closet door and see what you already have. Then take your mission to the mall, set a spending limit and snag some seriously stylish swag. You could even make it a competition with your chicas. Whoever rocks their look the best wins!

 

Braid your hair and spray with leave in conditioner before you go to sleep. When you wake up, you should have pretty, shiny waves. Plus it won't flop in your face while you’re trying to get some zzz’s. Want some new ‘dos? We’ve got 3 fresh braids you can do in minutes.
 

Try your hand at sewing. Hit up your local fabric store and pick up a pattern and some fabric. Then, measure and cut the pieces, pin ‘em together and sew a fresh new look for summer.

 

Jazz up your kicks. Pick up some plain canvas sneaks or a pair of rubber rainboots on the cheap, and paint them with acrylic or waterproof fabric paint. CLICK HERE for our artsy how-to.
