Summer is here, and while fashion trends come and go (and come back around again), there will always be certain accessories and items that will always be a staple for the season. You can wear the same 3-5 dresses or outfits all Summer long, but adding these essential items to your look can instantly change it up depending on how you style them. Personally speaking, I may decide on a different style for a specific accessory, but because of the way that I shop, the “updated” version will still work with the outfits that I wear for seasons to come.
Because these items are considered essential, you can splurge a little bit on them when your budget allows. Just be sure to check the quality, and make sure that they work with your overall color palette for your wardrobe. If you haven’t already, add these 8 essential summer accessories to your closet.
H&M Straw Hat, $15
I love adding a straw hat to my really simple sundress outfits. It adds something extra to your look while still keeping it polished.
A lot of people go for the sunnies that have a larger frame, but a classic aviator style is my personal favorite.
Small Straw Bag
The key to finding the right one will be the color and shape that you choose. I bought 2 straw bags last year because they were cute but they weren’t quite what I wanted, but I lucked up on the perfect style (for me) last week.
I keep gold hoops on deck, but there’s no better time than now to get really playful with your earrings and try out some really bold styles.
Senso Nicola Sandal, $155
A great neutral heel will work with all of your looks, whether you’re wearing all black, white, or tons of bright colors.
GrandPro Tennis Shoe, $78
White sneakers are clutch for when you want a model off duty type look. You can wear them with dresses, shorts and your favorite jeans.
Gold layered necklaces go with every thing. Your outfits will instantly go from basic to chic with these.
Joosh up your simple shift dresses and rompers with this classic summer accessory. Go for one that’s wider and that fits your natural waist vs. your hips.
