With summer well on its way, those in the northern hemisphere are about to be heading out more often than they did during those frigid winter months. But we don’t want to just go out, we want to go out and look good. While everyone will be aware of the latest and best fashions hitting the streets, to really make a summer styling statement we need to be looking at adding those accessories that’ll make sure we’ll be turning heads for all the right reasons.
So, what are your go-to summer styling accessories? Here are five of our favourite must-haves.
SUMMER STYLING | The accessories you need to make a summer styling statement
Go for a fun and funky clutch
Keep things light and simple this summer with a clutch bag that’ll be perfect for those poolside cocktail bars. But summer is not the time for that classy black number; instead, go for a clutch with bright and colourful designs. It’s not a permanent fixture of your outfit, so this is your chance to keep things playful and have a little fun with your outfit.
Turn heads with your ear candy
You could be wearing an absolutely fabulous outfit, but if you don’t have the equally glamorous earrings then you won’t be making as powerful a punch as you could be. Take a look at https://www.frostnyc.com/collections/gold-hoop-earrings and get the type of earrings that will ensure your outfit is flawless. Opt for something simple or classy, or add an eye-catching design and ensure you’ve got a set of earrings that’ll be the highlight of your wardrobe for many years to come.
Shade your eyes with the perfect sunglasses
The sun will be on its way and, whether you’re in Ibiza or just hitting the local summer hotspots you’re going to need a pair of sunglasses that adds plenty of style – as well as functionality of course. Over the next few months, nothing in your wardrobe will be worn more than your sunglasses. You’ll be wearing them everyday (with a bit of luck, anyway…), so it’s worth spending that little bit extra to get the best ones for your style goals. Check out Elle to find the sunglasses that’ll be best suited for you.
You got me in chains – literally
Don’t underestimate the power of chains. They can be added everywhere and are subtle yet really get you noticed – and not just because the sun reflects off the chain. You can get your chains for your ankles, your waist, your neck… just about everywhere! They’re light and impactful and go well when you’re showing a little a extra skin.
Wear a watch for decoration, not the actual time
It’s no secret that having the perfect watch can really bring an outfit all together. But the rules change when the sun is shining outside. You don’t want anything that’s too heavy or overly classy. Go for a style that is casual and light – your wristband should be something that fits in with summer. Wearing a watch during the summer is more for the style more than the practicality. After all, when you’re having fun, you don’t need to know what time it is.
