Sometimes women fall into the trap of believing we have to suffer to look beautiful. Just last week I read a magazine that included a disconcerting article about what celebrities put up with to look special during a photographed evening. These sacrifices included wearing heels so high the person had to lean on her publicist the whole night, a dress so tight this actress needed to take frequent bathroom breaks to breathe, and neck coils so heavy that the wearer’s upper body was stiff for a week. We get so wrapped up in the complicated and painful aspects of beauty that we forget how easy it is to sparkle and remain comfortable. Rihanna wows us with daring hot pants and ever changing hair colors, but her latest staple is a very approachable one, a girlie baseball cap. No longer are the duck brims reserved for alma mater pride and successful sports teams. I love a studded or bedazzled one with a solid mini skirt or a fun floral print topper to shield your face at the beach.
