Keiko Lynn, a Brooklyn-based fashion and beauty blogger, has joined forces with SheKnows this month to chat beauty, style and looking your best this summer.
Keiko’s (pronounced cake-oh’s) blog is filled with inspiring photos that showcase her quirky and classic style but her expertise doesn’t stop there. She also designs and makes clothing for her own line which you can check out at Postlapsaria.
We chose some of summer’s most troubling beauty and style blunders to solve in SheKnows’ Summer Block Party Issue and we were thrilled to have Keiko kick us a few tips. Start browsing through our features this month and you’ll see what she had to say!
Finding the right necklaces for
funky summer dress necklines
Summer style comes with a lot of funky necklines and there’s a slight science to accessorizing them right. We put together a basic guide with tips on the necklace styles that go best with the many necklines in fashion today.
“A jewel neckline is the perfect canvas for a statement necklace. Try the Ombré Chain Necklace from Bauble Bar,” said Keiko.
Finding the right bra for your summer dress
Since summer is all about showing more skin in the most stylish way possible, we don’t want any women to sacrifice style just because they couldn’t find the right bra. We assure you, there is a supporting solution for every dress style.
Keiko provided three of her favorite dress picks for summer and we have the bra suggestions to match!
The best neon color for your skin tone
It’s no secret that neons peak in summertime. The trend has been refined over the past seasons, and has even survived the colder months with more understated hues.
“Neon pink is my go-to,” Keiko, who rocks a fair skin tone, said. We kind of think neons should have no rules, but we did get a few experts to chime in on a few dos. There were no don’ts.
Speaking of using color…
One of our favorite features this month is a tutorial on how to wear mint-colored makeup.
Keiko agrees that you can play it safe with mint nail polish, but if you’re ready for a bold statement, boy do we have a tutorial for you! Plus, Keiko provides a handful of product picks you can have some serious fun with, including this eye pencil.
