Cool Summer Accessories for Hot Days

We’re smack dab in the middle of summer, so you’ve likely already picked your suits and cover ups, but what about the summer accessories like shoes, hat, bags and sunglasses?  We have some fun for the sun pieces that are both stylish and pragmatic, with a dash of dazzle!

Right now is a bit of a hey-day in fashion, overall, and this has certainly leaked over into our swimwear and summer accessories. Prints have gone jungle-crazy, colors are loud and funky, geometric patterns pair with it all. Or, on the flip side, they are multi-shades of calm neutral. Nothing needs to match.

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 in your sunglasses, shoes and bag.
