Color Perfect

Do you know what I love about summer? 
It's when you can wear shorts, tank tops, and preppy dresses not only because you want to show off your beautiful skin, but because you don't want the heat to kill you. Recently, whenever I dress up I always find myself revolving my look around prints, especially when they're as stunning and as outrageous as the pieces you see in these pictures: 
My heart skipped a beat when I saw this neon printed silk top online- the colors/ prints in one piece is just jaw dropping. It never fails to make your look more fun and quirky. Bright pieces like this make you look fair, making you more radiant than usual. I actually have a lot of abstract tops like this now- perfect for summer! 
Depending on the type of clothes you wear, some can actually make you look taller, thinner, etc. Some colors, on the other hand, can actually help make your skin look fairer, darker or lighter too. Because I'm wearing a bright orange top, my skin looks more radiant. Like in my outfit here, my pink wedges and red skirt highlighted my legs, making it look fairer and longer (aside from the fact that my wedges are 6 inches). You can also try wearing pleated short skirts to elongate your legs so you can show off your smooth skin. 
(Goody tie, Jhajing necklace, Trendphile top & skirt, Gold Dot bracelets, Zara belt, Chanel bag, Vishoes wedges)

Combining bright pieces with just minimal accessories definitely highlighted my fair skin. Though I had just been to Boracay (and stayed under the sun for quite some time) my skin was well-protected from UV rays becauseI lathered sun block all over it. I also used Palmolive Naturals White and Moisture Soap to keep my radiant and fair skin alive. Would recommend you guys to try it- it has a formula with 100% natural Papaya and Songyi Mushroom Extracts that promises whiter skin in one week (based on mexameter instrumental reading, when used twice daily)Wearing colored pieces actually makes your skin more noticeable. This summer, don't be shy to show off your beautiful and fair skin.
