Summer calls for simplicity in the wardrobe department. Why? It’s warm out there and sometimes a short cotton dress is the only way to beat July’s blistering heat.
To ensure this season’s looks don’t read too plain, accessorize. Yes, just one standout accessory can give an outfit that extra edge. What’s an ice cream sundae without that bright red cherry on top, am I right? Because I’m all for sharing, here are three of my favorite summertime style staples.
Summer Style Accessories
1. Bright Mint Bag
Whatever you prefer to call the popular pale shade (mint, sea foam, semi-cyan), pastel green has made a comeback. To my delight, so many purses flaunt the sweet hue this season. Look for a structured crossbody or a beautiful bucket bag in mint for a chic way to inject a pop of color into your summertime ensemble.
2. Metallic Wedge
A metallic shoe is a chameleon in the accessory world. Shades of gold, silver, and bronze function as neutrals–flashy, glamorous neutrals. For easy summer style, seek out a metallic wedge with a unique embellishment.
3. Pastel Print Scarf
Scarves aren’t just fashionable in the winter. A lightweight scarf in a delicate pastel print pairs well with a plain white tee or a fancy maxi dress. To get even more mileage out of the accessory, tie it around your purse strap or wear it as a headband.
