Cool Summer Accessories for Hot Days

Dog and woman wearing cool summer accessories

We’re smack dab in the middle of summer, so you’ve likely already picked your swimsuits and cover-ups. But what about the summer accessories like shoes, sun hats, bags, and sunglasses?  We have some fun in the sun pieces that are both stylish and practical, with a dash of dazzle!

Right now, fashion is definitely not one size fits all; there seems to be a style and pattern for everyone, and that trend has leaked over into our swimwear and summer accessories. Styles of swimwear vary from solid prints to one-shoulder eclectic pieces, and bright, fun colors are definitely in style. On the contrary, in just about every category, you can find multi-shades of calm neutral, where nothing needs to match, but it all still works.

If classic chic is more your thing, there is plenty to please. Since styles are harkening back to modern design, the lines are impeccably clean. Keep your swimsuit to a neutral, but add that pop of color with your sunglasses, shoes, and bag selections.

If you aren’t sure what to pick (the options are endless!), maybe our list of favorite Summer accessories will help guide you.
