23 Summer Fashion Struggles Most Girls Will Relate To
One word: chafing.
Sunshine and holiday season might seem like a good thing, but as all girls who love fashion will know, dressing for summer is also a bit of a pain in the arse.
From sweaty boobs to the minefield that is trying to sit down in a skirt in the park without flashing your knickers, these are the summery style struggles us girls can no doubt relate to.
1. Judging the awkward moment of when to trade your coat for a jacket
Because if you do it too early, there will naturally be a freak May snowstorm and if you do it even a day too late, you inevitably end up nearly passing out from heat stroke when you’re pressed up against some sweaty dude on the bus in the morning.
2. Exposing your pasty ass legs for the first time
The fear that the moment you step out of the door, someone will sound an alarm and shout, ‘ICE BEEEEERG’ never really goes away.
3. The saga of fake tanning
Yes I did mean to turn the area of leg up to my knees an unnatural shade of orange that in no way matches the rest of my body or face, thanks for asking.
Because it’s just your luck to have got so sidetracked googling shirtless Harry Styles gifs that you forgot to wash them after tanning.
5. Humidity hair
No point straightening, curling or really even brushing it when you know you’re going to look like this when you step outside. And don't even get us started on the level of anger when someone splashes your hair at the pool.
6. The makeup sweats
Nothing like applying a perfect face and feeling it sliding its way down your cheeks approximately five minutes later
7. Boob sweat
Is there anything sexier than a sweat patch under your boobs? Err yeah, pretty sure there is actually.
8. Fringe sweat
Oh good, a damp and strand fringe exposing my equally sweaty forehead is exactly the look I was going for this morning.
9. Leg sweat
Don’t mind me, my bare legs have just casually stuck to this faux leather seat through the power of my own sweaty legs.
10. Thigh sweat
One word: chafing.
And If no one could ask you why you're walking like Mr Potato Head today, that would be ideal.
11. JUST SO MUCH SWEAT. Everywhere.
In nooks and crannies you didn’t even know you had. It’s just E-V-E-R-Y-W-H-E-R-E.
12. Trying to sit on the grass in a skirt without flashing the entire universe
Is this a picnic or a pap smear? Sometimes it's hard to know.
13. Air con
Having suffered the full body sweats on the way in, there’s nothing like arriving at school or work and having to put on ALL of the clothes because it’s like the full-on Antarctic in there.
14. Breaking in your sandals
Sweaty feet + fake leather shoes = blisters for days.
15. Feeling like maybe you should at least consider shaving some stuff
Legs, general bikini area, maybe even toes? Roll on winter because who has the time to do this on a regular basis.
16. Finding a bra that doesn’t totally show in that dreamy boho top you bought from Urban Outfitters
It looked cute in the shop but the reality is a strappy nightmare and your entire boob is on show.
17. Literally everyone else you know turning up on a night out wearing exactly the same dreamy boho top you bought from UO.
18. Strapless bras
Because if you’re wearing one, it’s inevitably going to spend the entire day falling down.
19. Trying to do absolutely anything in a bikini
If it isn't a bum cheek hanging out, it's a nipslip waiting to happen. WHY IS BEING A GIRL SO HARD?
20. Those cute off the shoulder tops everyone on Instagram is wearing
Move ONE muscle and they pop right up and you'll then spend the rest of your life trying to subtly pull them back down.
84% sure they are the work of the devil.
21. Dodgy tan lines
Yeah that cutout swimsuit seemed like a good idea pre-holiday, but less so when you’re rocking some weird, slightly alien patchiness post-hols.
22. Wearing white
Because it looks so pretty with a tan, but less pretty when you inevitably spill chocolate ice cream all the way down the front.
23. Bra straps resting on your sunburnt shoulders
Real talk: it's the worst pain you'll feel this side of child birth. NO THANK YOU PLEASE.
