Style your Jewelry 

Wear it like you mean business! Pair your summer dress with the statement neckpiece around the collar and match the earrings with the top knot bun hairstyle for that chic look.

Look_02

A little shimmer is the perfect way to add a sophisticated dimension to your swimwear. A delicate pendant & gold earrings are preferred because they inspire thoughts of the golden sun. Earrings with a little bit of movement and flexibility will look great when you turn your head or walk along the beach.

Look_03

To rock that Little Black Dress,  pick a necklace that adds a bit of sophisticated spark on your chest and as earrings go, make sure they highlight your facial feature & flatter your skin tone.

Look

For someone who likes to keep it traditional yet want to give their outfit a modern edge, just simply don the statement pendant & jhumkis with an Anarkali and complete the look with a side braid hairstyle for that royal feel.

5 Summer Hair Trends For 2016 To Get Onboard With

The best part about seasons is the inevitable wardrobe switch from fuzzy woolens to airy cottons. And it ain’t just the clothes. Anything that can – and must – be stylish goes through a rigorous trend mapping. Everything right from your toenails to your tresses. Speaking of which, let’s have a look at the hottest summer hair trends for 2016, shall we?

 

  1. Bob with Layers & Bangs

Last year was the year of the sharp and asymmetric bob. But as you walk into the new year and your roots grow out that asymmetric perfection, move towards this tussled and carefree bob with long layers and bangs.image (1)fgsd

 

  1. Sleek & Pointy

If your mantra for the season is “slick hair don’t care”, then you go girl and this look with the poker straight hair styled with some razor sharp layers will compliment your mantra perfectly. Go for a middle-parting and you’re golden!hbz-summer-haircuts-alessandra-ambrosio

 

  1. Textured Cut with Bangs

Lassies with medium to long tresses, this one’s your calling. Ask you stylist to give you a layered cut with some thorough careless texture. Turn up the sass by coupling the layered locks with some side swept bangs.GettyImages-516997714

 

  1. Fringed Mop

A cute mop of lightly textured hair reaching just about your jawline with brawled bangs spells out S-U-M-M-E-R. Dye it for some added panache. Shades of maroon or a natural redhead shade should do the trick just right!hbz-summer-haircuts-taylor-swift

 

  1. Platinum Plated

If you want to let your hair cut be and still be in vogue, dive right into some icy platinum hair color. Spotted on A-list celebs and fashionistas, the colour might be a task to pull off but is totally worth the risk!jourdan-dunn
