You know the saying “it’s all in the details”? Well, we think it’s a pretty spot on philosophy when it comes to summertime dressing. We tend to pare down our clothing down to the bare essentials when temperatures creep up. This presents the perfect opportunity to accessorize to your heart’s desire!
Whether you’re lying out by the pool or taking that well deserved seaside trip, the right summer accessories make the outfit. Pair your sexy bikinis or sassy one-piece suits with an oversized sun hat to protect your face from the sun AND channel your inner poolside goddess! Wearing a simple maxi dress? Pair it with embellished sandals to give it some added interest. If you’re more into simple sandals, a pair of slides gives a totally of-the-moment feel while being every bit as comfy as your regular flip-flops! Oh, and don’t forget the stylish functionality of a big straw tote for beachside, poolside or just weekend treks around town.

Need more of a statement accessory? Trade in that everyday tote bag for a fringe studded crossbody bag to add a nice accent to even your simplest jeans-and-tee ensemble.
Last but certainly not least, let’s not forget the sunglasses as one of summer’s go-to essentials. A great way to brighten up your face is by simply switching out your basic black or brown sunglasses for something with fun colored lenses! Try a pair of Ray-Ban Wayfarers or their classic Aviator with blue or green lenses for an easy way to add a pop of color no matter how barebones your outfit may be.
