It’s no secret Iskra Lawrence has a good sense of style! Whether she’s rockin’ a bikini or simply jeans and a T-Shirt, she always makes it look great. The #AerieREAL role model exclusively shared her go-to summer tips with Life & Style, and it turns out the key is to not try too hard.
“I do feel like less is more, especially in the summer,” the 28-year-old exclusively revealed. “I just want like messy hair with some sea salt spray and a swimsuit, like I love, love, love wearing bikini tops or my Aerie one-pieces with shorts or with jeans and not just for the beach.”
Wondering how to make a summer outfit pop? Iskra said adding shades to your look makes a difference. “If you’ve got a traditional one-piece and you pair it with retro sunglasses then you have the whole vibe going on,” she added. “So I think it’s nice to mix your summer accessories with your wardrobe.”
Another fun way Iskra likes to switch things up is by changing her hair color. The natural blonde beauty admitted she uses Olaplex and other products like hair masks to keep her tresses healthy. She also noted it’s important not to overwash it. “A bit of grit, a bit of dirt in your hair kind of works that summer vibe,” she said.
Just because Iskra is a professional model, that doesn’t mean she always feels her best. However, she makes the best of it. “Feeling my best is just being grateful for what I’m doing. I think often we get caught up in our thoughts about how we look in our bathing suits or swimsuits,” she continued.
“A lot of people feel insecure about putting on their bikinis or one-pieces, and it’s realizing that that doesn’t matter. It’s all about what you’re doing and what you’re enjoying, and feeling the sand between your toes or the smell of the ocean and thinking about those things rather than any insecurities or body image worries you may have,” she confessed. Iskra also added that empowering your friends is also essential to feel good. We totally agree!
