Summer is around the corner (here in the Northern Hemisphere at least) and I couldn’t be more excited!
While warm weather has its beauty challenges, summer a great time to be a girl. There’s nothing like stepping out en femme in a cute sundress or sexy swimsuit.
Ready to turn a few heads this season?
Here are 7 tips – specifically for crossdressers and transgender women – to help you look extra sexy and feminine this summer.
1. Don a pair of sexy sunglasses
Sunglasses are your most important summer accessory. Aside from protecting your eyes, they give you an air of glamour and mystery!
The secret to pulling them off in style is to choose flattering frames:
- If you have angular features, choose rounded frames to balance out your face.
- If you have a round face, angular frames are most flattering.
Tip: Many women wear sunglasses too high on their faces. Most stylists agree that your sunglasses should never cover your eyebrows.
2. Highlight your hair
Nothing says summer like highlights, so add some highlights to your hair or pick up a highlighted wig.
By the way, crossdressers and transgender women of all skin and hair tones can wear highlights. Auburn, chocolate, or dark blonde highlights – as seen here on the stunning Laverne Cox – look fabulous with darker coloring.
3. Try a self tanner
Suntans are sexy and make your body look thinner and more toned. Instead of frying in the sun, indulge in a self tanner.
I suggest using a tanning mousse along with a mitt applicator. It’s much easier to achieve an even-looking tan with mousse vs. the traditional self tanning lotions. Coco and Eve makes a great one.
4. Change your perfume
Changing your perfume is a great way to get into the mood for summer. Take a break from heavy, musky fragrances and choose something light and fruity for the summer.
Here are some great, summer-worth scents:
- On the Beach by Louis Vuitton (this is a unisex scent, so you can also wear it in male mode!)
- Sugar Lemon by Fresh
- Be Delicious Fresh Blossom by DKNY
- Daisy Eau So Fresh by Marc Jacobs
5. Remove body hair
There is nothing as sexy as smooth silky skin, so this is the time for a full body shave or wax. I guarantee you’ll feel very girly! You’ll also feel cooler and smell fresher – another plus for the feminine experience.
6. Lighten your lip color
Summer is the time to trade in those deep lip colors for something fresh and light. Soft pink, coral, and nude shades are perfect for a warm weather look.
7. Invest in a new dress
For my last tip, I am giving you permission to go shopping! A sexy new sundress is a great way to kick off the summer. Look for flowing, gathered styles to create the illusion of curves.
