    1. Denim Shorts

Every Type looks great in denim! It’s a classic summer look. You can pair them with the patterned top or graphic tee—and you’ll be good to go.

    1. Wide Leg Pull-On Pants

This style of pants has been trending since last summer. Often referred to as a culotte or palazzo pant style, this is great for summer as they are lightweight and breezy. These can be worn effortlessly with a tank and dressed up or down with a simple change of shoes!

    1. Knee Length Dress

Many women love to wear skirts or dresses in the summer to keep the airflow going. Choosing a knee-length skirt or dress allows you to still run around with the kids without worrying about things staying in place.

    1. Slip-On Shoes

Grab and go! You’ll want some easy slip-on shoes that are comfortable to walk in and easy enough to take off when you want to dip your toes in the water at the lake or beach.

    1. Strappy Sandals

These are perfect for dressing up your pants, skirts, or dresses. The right kind of sandals can make you feel fancy without losing comfort! A nude shoe is a great summer option that can go with almost everything in your closet.

    1. Swimsuit

Whether or not you’ll cannonball into the pool, this is a must-have for summer! Make sure you feel comfortable in your swimsuit. Our DYT swimsuit resources have helped women find their inner confidence for the first time in years!

    1. Hat

If you think, “I’m not a hat person,” think again! Hats are a great way to keep the sun off your face and rock your 3rd day hair! A baseball cap, straw fedora, or large brim hats are all in style this summer and can be the perfect, functional summer accessory!

    1. Large Tote Bag

Large tote bags are a must-have for the summer! You’ll be out of the house for longer periods of time, running to and from activities, the pool, or heading to the park for the afternoon. Straw totes are in style this summer, but you could choose another design to express your Type. Have fun with it!

    1. Sunglasses

Are your sunglasses from a few years ago scratched up and getting wobbly? Time for you to treat yourself to a new pair of sunglasses for your Type. Keep the sun out of your eyes and be able to relax more easily with a fashionable pair of sunglasses.

    1. BB Cream & Blotting Powder

BB Cream is the quickest way to a flawless finish. Each shade includes SPF 30 and can be applied like a moisturizer with just your hands. It’s skin caring and skin protecting in one simple step.

Keep the Oil Control Blotting Powder in your purse to liven up your skin when the sweat starts to melt away your makeup. This shine-absorbing pressed powder is oil-free and the translucent finish is perfect for all skin types. Apply over makeup for an even and flawless finish, or simply use it as a blotting powder.
