There are two types of people: the ones who can’t wait to wear their summer clothes, and the ones who find them boring. We can see how living in a tank top and shorts for a few months might not be appealing to some people, and that’s exactly why accessories exist! They’re an easy and inexpensive way to take your OOTDs to the next level.
A cool pair of sunglasses can completely change the feel of your outfit. Even if you’re wearing the simplest of outfits, sunglasses will add the wow factor. Go for an unusual shape and/or bold color for maximum impact. You can also add a sunglass chain for some extra detail.
Similar to sunglasses, a great bag adds instant interest. And if you’re not a bag person, you can always choose a nice backpack instead. Look for quirky geometric shapes, fun color(s), and interesting textures. This year is all about boxy and bucket bags in crocodile, python, acrylic, clear vinyl, and mesh netting.
You may not want to be weighed down with a ton of jewelry in the heat, but some lightweight earrings are always a good choice that won’t result in unwanted tan lines. Go for some diva-esque hoops (don’t be afraid to choose a bright color for summer), elegant drop earrings, or a mod geometric pair.
Hair accessories (barrettes, scarves, scrunchies)
Keep your hair from sticking to your face in style with an accessory. Relive your childhood with barrettes and scrunchies, or play around with a little silk scarf. You can use it as a hair tie or hairband.
Protect your skin and look cute! Whether you go for a sporty baseball cap or bucket hat, a beachy straw hat, or a feminine floppy hat, you’ll be doing yourself and your style a favor.
Upgrade your denim shorts or sundress with a belt. A great belt will add character to your outfit and definition to your waist. Add a western feel with a leather buckle belt, an edgy feel with an animal texture belt, a feminine feel with a pastel slim belt, or go boho with a raffia belt.
With a good selection of accessories, you’ll be able to make your outfits feel new and different all summer long.
