Love has most certainly been in the air this summer, between Love Island and Celebs go dating we haven’t been able to escape couples. However, this year has also been the year of the Hot Girl Summer, the shame in third wheeling has disappeared as girls are doing it for themselves. However, if you’re following in Miley Cyrus’ footsteps and only just becoming single here’s our guide to enjoying what’s left of single summer:
1. Treat yourself
Suddenly without spending money on new outfits for date nights and endless amounts of money on the actual dates (we’ve all been in that relationship that is literally just eating together) you’ll find yourself with a large disposable income for YOU. Spend a little money on your post – breakup hair ‘do and reinvent yourself with a new wardrobe we’ve got just the pieces to help you do it. Shop our Long Hot Summer collection here.
2. See your friends more
Take this time to realise how lucky you are! Reconnect with friends from your past or nurture those you may have neglected whilst you were cuffed. Enjoy girl time, there’s nothing better than having girly gossip over a cocktail especially in a summery beer garden.
3. Fall in love with yourself.
Hot girl summer is all about being you, own your body and do what you want with it. It’s the only one you’re going to get, and everybody is a beautiful one. There’s no better place for self-love than in a bikini - appreciate yourself for you and flaunt it girl!
4. Enjoy your own company
We all know that feeling of dread that comes on a Friday night and you realise you haven’t got a bae to fall back on for last minute drinks. Don’t panic – there’s a whole boxset of glee on Netflix for a reason. It’s ok to just have plans with yourself! Have a night in and catch up on those chick flicks you could never watch in a relationship or venture out of the house and do something you enjoy.
5. Find your single summer anthem.
Get that single girl playlist on and dance like nobody is watching (think Bridget Jones moment) there’s a reason the soundtrack of the summer is called Hot Girl Summer. From Lizzo to Destiny’s child here are some Summery Single Anthems to get you through…
