Top Five Summer Pet Peeves

Lined up for the firing squad are the crimes against summer fashion and beauty. Let’s see if you agree:

Hosiery with Sandals: It’s hot out side, and nothing screams “granny” louder than wearing nude hose with open shoes. Really need support up top? Get yourself some Spanx, or if you’re just worried about the ghastly white shade of pale on your legs, try some self tanner.

Bad Fake Tans: Just follow some simple rules. One, the product should match the underlying tone of your skin and no one’s underlying tone is orange. Two, apply hand/body lotion to the palms of your hands and the bottoms of your feet to keep them from “tanning.” Three, build up gradually. If you leave on Friday with pale/medium skin and come back Monday looking like you spent six weeks in the South Pacific, we know what’s up. Need to take the guesswork out of the whole ordeal? Try a SunFX spray-on tan.

Men in Speedos: I mean…I can’t. I just can’t. *Shudder* Moving on.

Sandals without a Pedicure: You wouldn’t dare wear a bathing suit without hair removal, right? Same rule applies here. Get yourself some Tummy to Toes Legs/Feet Cream ($18.99.) Slather on after exfoliation at night. Sleep in cotton socks.Wake up fabulous and stiletto ready.

White Shirts with Sweat Stains: It’s time to break up with your shirt. Be strong and let go. Isaac Mizrahi for Target’s Kristina Cami makes a great day-to-night basic. At $19.99, it should ease the pain of the break-up.

What are your biggest summer pet peeves? Toe cleavage, anyone? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section.
