Hottest Accessories for Summer



Sundresses, shorts, and sandals: Summer styles are always fun to wear. More often than not, however, your accessories really make your outfit. This summer, make the most of your styles with all the right accessories to go with the season's hottest styles. What's your summertime look?

Summer Accessories by Style:

  1. Beach babe: Whether you're spending your summer vacationing on the beach or sunbathing by the pool, a few accessories will get you beach-ready in no time. Of course, sunglasses are going to be on the top of your list, but you'll also need a chic cover up for your time out of the water and a pair of sandals to stroll the beach. When you're catching the waves, it's all about color. Bright, tropical hues are always in at the shore, so look for a pair of melon-colored wayfarers or a sunny yellow sarong. Blues are a classic, too, and a blue-and-white striped nautical canvas tote is a must-have accessory.

  2. White hot: White is not only chic for summer, but it goes with everything, and it'll help you keep cool, too. Whether you'll be lounging by the pool or strolling a city street, pick up a few fresh, white accessories to complement your look. A pair of white or nude heels is the perfect way to accent all your summery sundresses, and you could carry a white handbag all summer long. If you're looking for just a touch of bright white, try a few bangles or a pair of earrings to lighten up your look on a warm summer night.

  3. Sparkle and shine: Sequins have been a big trend the past few seasons, and they show no signs of going away. Sequins can be heavy, though, so swap your heavily sequined dresses and blouses from winter for looks with just a touch of sparkle this summer. Sandals are a great way to start. A little sparkle on your toes can change your whole look, especially if you pair them with a sequined tank. Opt for sparkling crystal jewelry and a metallic silver or gold handbag to really make your look shine.

  4. Vintage: If there's ever a time to sport a vintage floral dress, summer is it. The warm weather just begs for a light, airy look. But you'll need all the right accessories to keep your look lovely and pulled together. Some cute cat-eye or wayfarer sunglasses are perfect for protecting your eyes, and some summery wedges will complement all your vintage dresses. A small leather shoulder bag is essential, and a cute case for your cell phone will help you show off your personal style. Top it off with a straw fedora.

  5. Music fest style: Whether you're attending a big music festival this year or just want to rock the look all summer long, your first accessory should be a big sun hat. It'll keep you protected while you're outside all day and perfectly complement your band tee and denim shorts. Of course, you'll need a pair of leather sandals, too, and some matching leather bracelets stacked with a few gold bangles are an absolute must.
