We’ve read it in every fashion magazine, on every blog, and in every style book; the best way to make the most of your wardrobe is with accessories. You don’t need a closet packed with clothes to get a variety of looks out of your clothes. Accessories can change the look and feel of any outfit you put on, and are generally more budget friendly. It’s also a great way to try out new trends without committing to a new wardrobe!
Summer time can be especially tricky with making your wardrobe multi-task. On any given day, you can go from the office, to the pool, to dinner, to a cocktail party. You might do brunch and the beach in the same day, and who wants to do a complete outfit change? These accessories will help you change up your regular look and make it work for whatever summer fun you have planned.
Bright colors and bold pieces are perfect for a day at the beach, or a night out. Throw one of these pieces in your purse during work to add to your look for happy hour or an evening out. Add it to your summer tote to wear with a cute cover up after a day at the beach to get you dinner party ready!
Summer shoes are all about fun! Gladiator sandals continue to dominate the summer trend, and low-top sneakers are great for running errands or for a music festival. For a fancier look, opt for some on-trend Marsala wedges to kick up an evening ensemble.
Don’t get stuck with one bag to handle all of your summer needs! A good tote can take you from the pool, to a dinner date, carrying everything you need and still looking great. A small cross-body is a must for those festivals and amusement parks, or a summer sightseeing adventure. And of course, a classy, summery everyday bag gives your day-to-day look a dose of summer fun.
Just because it’s summer doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your favorite layers. Light vests, infinity scarves, and belts are perfect summer accessories for the office, the beach, or your favorite downtown, rooftop hangout!
