4. Try a co-ord outfit to look insanely put together with 0.00 effort.

5. Transform a solid top into printed perfection with your favorite stamp — just dip it in bleach and stamp away.

Whether you like lashes or skeleton hands on your chest, you can find the right one for you.

Get them from Amazon: the eyelash one for $5.99+ (sizes: S–XL; available in four colors) and the skeleton one for $12.59 (sizes S–XL; available in three colors).

7. Stop worrying about your tops coming untucked — just opt for a bodysuit instead.

Promising review: "It fits great! True to size chart and received it right on time. Not thick but not sheer, so it's perfect. The cut in the back is nice to show off pretty lace bras. Overall, so happy with this purchase!!" —Ashlea Amber


8. Even if you're only wearing ONE article of clothing, you can still mix prints. Try a dress with two or more patterns in one!

Get this one from Forever 21 for $19.10. Sizes: S–L.

Promising review: "This dress is so nice. It is exactly as pictured. Fabric is so soft and colors are beautiful." —Sheeno


12. If you're stuck in a sticky situation when it comes to finding the right bra for an outfit, try a magical plunging, strapless, backless bra that'll actually support you.

Get it from Amazon for $16.99+. Sizes: A–DD. Available in two colors.

Promising review: "This a pretty awesome bra!! It works wonderfully and stays in place without any problems. It is not uncomfortable and it does not bother my super sensitive skin (which has been an issue in the past with other brands). It is very easy to put on and take off when you are ready. You can use the clear straps that come with it if you so wish, but I did not need them and I am a 48D. I also love the fact that it held up all day, even when it was super hot out. We were in 100-degree weather, and I will say I was sweating badly outside but it was no problem for this bra. I will be getting me some more of these to keep on hand for when I need to wear a strapless bra." —Mary H

15. Freshen up your clothes from last year by adding summery accessories like a straw basket purse in the shape of a shell.


19. Add a lil drama with a maxi dress that opens to reveal a romper underneath.

Get this one from Amazon for $22.99. Sizes: 4–14. Available in two prints.

Promising review: "If you like this and have seen other ones like in on Amazon - order this one! I ordered 3 different ones that look the same in pictures, this brand fit the best and had the softest material. The skirt is a bit long, but floated nicely behind me (I wore this for Easter and was outside for part, the breeze caught it nicely), and best of all: this dress has a size zipper, so the body is actually fitted to you. I found this much more flattering than other brands, which just had elastic waistbands." —Charlotte D.


20. Just because it's summer doesn't mean you can't layer — try a slip dress over a tee or top.

This one does the layering *for you*!

Get it from Loralette for $16.96 (on sale from $49). Sizes: 1X-3X. Available in two colors.

21. And shield your self from the sun and set up the perfect Instagram with an embroidered sun hat to cap off your whole outfit.

It's embroidered fabric, not just glued on, so it'll actually stay in tact!

Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

Promising review: "As others mentioned, the hat arrived folded in the box but immediately flattened out. The brim is perfect for me. It's just sturdy enough and just floppy enough. I hate when floppy hats are too floppy and just hang in my face. Not this one. And there is a string inside to tighten if needed. And it's super cute! I'll be testing it at the beach next weekend." —S. Shel
