FIVE SIGNS OF SUMMER


THE QUICK-CHANGE SUNDRESS Lightweight, colorful — with the personality of a mood ring. Wear it poolside or to a wedding. It goes everywhere. Jade in Rockford has a blue/green/ivory floral number perfect with flip-flops or “a little cardigan or denim jacket over it for our cooler summer nights,” according to Jade Owner Julie Cronkright.


FOR YOUR LOCKS This year, it’s a little bit hippie, a lot bohemian. Go wild with real feather extensions. Wash, curl, flat iron and blow-dry these extensions in a variety of colors such as red, blue, green pink and natural browns and blacks. They’re a “su- per fun and cheap way to spice up your look for the summer,” says Mercedes Hollenbeck, stylist at A Cut Ahead Salon in Rockford. Also at Capelli Salon.

FOOT FETISH Your sandals should be distract- ing. Stand tall in frilly fuchsia wedges from Lamb. The cheery sandal is made of a leather and canvas combo with flower petal embellishments along the top of the foot. Shop Manager Marissa Kulha loves, “how unexpected they are.” Another option at Lamb is the multi-colored tassel sandal.


SISSY-FREE JEWELRY Bring out the beachy, floral and tribal stuff. Go overboard. A basic white tank top can become your best asset combined with sun-kissed skin and accessories in citrus colors. Take on the day and night with a bright bold flower cuff bracelet from the Grand Haven-based Etsy shop lakesho- recreations4u.etsy.com.


POLISH UP A splash of color on the toes is mandatory. “Happy Birthday” is one recommendation from the Deborah Lippmann nail lacquer line at Smooch Beauty Boutique. It’s basically a party in a bottle — a glittery number that’s edgy. While there ask Smooch about kai body butter that “smells like summer,” according to Owner Mia Walker.
