Summer is synonymous with scorching temperatures and barely there fashion. But with that comes certain style challenges, with comfort taking a backseat to ladylike polish, or vice verse. "It doesn't have to be that way!" Says fashion guru and CEO/founder of Smart & Sexy, Ariela Balk, "You can have it all, the key is looking for solution-based garments and not sacrificing your sense of style – no matter the season."

Here, she shares some of her top tips to ensure you face the season flawlessly:

Incorporate the latest trends – within reason.

Love the neon trend but won't wear for fear of looking like a highlighter? Mad about print, but not quite sure how to mix? Try incorporating one key piece, whether a brightly colored bra under a sheer top or a printed bikini for the beach.

SCOOP BRA, PRINTED BIKINI TOP, SKIRTED BIKINI BOTTOM

Comfort is king.

Want to add some extra volume to your bustline? Trying to conceal a tummy? Solution driven styles like add-a-size sleepwear or a tankini with 4 inches of extra length ensure your confidence can shine through, whether you're in the bedroom or on the beach.

ADD A SIZE SLEEPWEAR CHEMISE, EXTREME PUSH UP TANKINI, SIDE TIE BIKINI BOTTOM

Size Matters.

It doesn't matter if you're head to toe in the latest Summer fashion – the wrong foundations can ruin the overall look. Be sure to buy bra's that fit, even if the size is a larger number or cup than you're comfortable with, the right bra can make you look pounds slimmer. Check for brands that have a large size run to ensure you will be covered.
