Summer has finally arrived, and the fine weather sometimes calls for an entirely different wardrobe. Still, donning a series of entirely new ensembles can be incredibly taxing with repetitive trips to the store. What if there is a simpler way to add flare to an outfit without all the hassle? Once you’ve got CNN’s basic style do’s and don’ts under your belt, look deeper!
Accessories are where exciting details can be found. They add nuance and subtle style to any ensemble, and often serve as the finishing touches to your look. But with so many options, what should you be looking for this season?
Here are some of the easy summer accessories that will make your summer style shine.
Summer outfits demand an airy kind of lightness to them, and because of this, something as weighty and cumbersome as a bag is often out of the question. However, it really depends what you put in them for weight to matter! There’re many kinds of bags out there that’re perfect for a summer aesthetic; from handbags and shoulder bags, to bum bags and belt bags.
These bags are all incredibly light to carry if you just want to have a few smaller possessions on your person like makeup, tissues and any medical items you might need. The British have nailed it themselves, as popular fashion brand Radley London offer an enticing range of leather handbags. They’re stylish and suave yet entirely practical, so do some digging around here for something that will lend more eccentricity to your look!
There aren’t many people roaming around in the summery outdoors without a pair of quality sunglasses. While it’s probably that you already have a pair to call your own, it’s worth remembering how essential they are and not to leave them in places like your car or at home. If there’s no shade then you are subject to the sun’s roaring brightness and you’ll need your shades!
Always keep your sunglasses with you, whether they’re on your head or in one of your previously mentioned handbags. That way, you’re prepared for all manners of brightness (and the UV rays) that come your way, and your squinting days will be done!
If you ever go to a festival like Coachella or Aspen Food and Wine, chances are nearly every woman in sight will be wearing a hoop earring or two. This accessory has gone a long way in recent years, starting as a quirky but seldom-used earring and blossoming into a full-blown fashion statement. It’s a simple, youthful and vibrant addition to any outfit, so if you’re keen to keep up with the trends, hoop earrings are the way to go.
Another plus to note here is that hoop earrings work well on literally anyone. You don’t have to look or be a certain way to wear them, which makes them highly adaptable and dependable accessories to have. You simply can’t go wrong, so grab some!
Of course, there’re more summer accessories that’re worth noting, but this list aims to cover the more vital accessories that you need. With a handbag you have portable storage for all your essential items while still looking stylish, sunglasses are a timeless addition that once again boast practicality and chicness, and hoop earrings are purely aesthetic, but keep you firmly on trend in 2019. In the end, it’s all summery goodness!
