Six Accessories for Summer


Summer is great for accessorizing because you don’t have to hide your outfit away under tons of layers. Now is the time to show off your accessories, so in order to keep your look fresh, try mixing and matching accessories with your outfits.

Hats and Headbands:  These options are a great way to make your hair look good, even if you’re having a bad hair day. Whether it’s a large floppy hat or a straw boater hat, you will be able to match it with almost anything.

Headbands aren’t just for keeping your hair out of your face anymore, although it doesn’t hurt. Flower crowns, floral patterns, and lace designs are all ways to give your look that extra something, and they come in so many different colors that it would be impossible not to coordinate them into your look.

Colorful handbags: Keep your purses light and bright. During the summer try and only carry what you absolutely need, as heavier bags will weigh you down when you’re on the move. A simple cross-body bag in a bright color will give you all the color your look needs, without weighing you down.

Scarves and kimonos: Although summer days are hot, summer nights are much colder. If you don’t want the burden of carrying around heavy layers, but might be somewhere chilly, throw one of these accessories into your bag before you leave. Both of these come in multi-colored patterns and work best with simple outfits, but regardless of how you wear them they’re sure to brighten your look.

Hair ties- A colorful hair tie will look cute on your wrist, and also in your hair. During the warmer days it’s hard to always keep your hair down. If you want to avoid the humidity and help tame your hair, make sure to keep a few hair ties on your wrist. These also come in handy if you’re with a friend who may have forgotten theirs. A low hanging side pony tail is a lot better than a sweaty mess.

Statement pieces: If you aren’t a hat person, there are still a lot of accessories for you to work with. If you want a way to dress up your everyday look, try a chunky ring, or a blinged out necklace over a basic top. Jewelry is a guaranteed way to draw attention to your outfit, and it will dress up your look with minimal effort.

Whichever accessories you find are best for your look, remember that you don’t need a lot to help style different outfits. Once you get a few staple accessories in your wardrobe, it becomes easier to mix and match them.
