During the blazing hot summer months, it’s really easy for accessories to take a back seat. Sometimes, that’s okay: when the heat is entirely too oppressive to stand, just getting dressed is a victory.
But most of the time, we could all do well to put just a wee bit more effort into how we accessorize our summer looks. (And no, you can’t just toss on a beach hat every time!) To figure out this complicated maze here are a few suggestions that will help you up your game this summer.
For summer, I’m always looking for great mid-height heels and dressy flats. I’m on my feet a lot, so having comfortable but chic shoes is important.
I love having options in sunglasses. I usually pick up a new pair of classic aviators each summer, but I also like to find a new shape or color for the summer.
I find myself always turning to pretty lace camisoles that can be layered under tanks, strappy dresses, or a deep neck. They add interest to your outfit while giving you coverage.
I love to layer, but in the heat, it’s definitely harder to do. So I layer up my jewelry instead: bracelets, rings, and necklaces are some of my key accessories for summer.
I love a soft-shaped, neutral or light-colored handbag for summer.
Gauzy summer scarves that can be worn to work (or used as a beach wrap) are a must-have!
And there you have it; Easy pieces that will add some flare and panache to simple summer outfits.
