Summer Accessory Trends
It’s hard to be spot on with all the trends floating around these days, it’s like a buffet. Fortunately, that means there is something for everyone; no matter what your style is, there is an accessory to match it.
As women, we always need something to carry our necessities in, such as keys, identification, lip gloss and other various items. During the summer months, I find that I don’t always want to carry a huge bag. If you want to ditch your oversized bag, try an envelope clutch, a wristlet bag or a cross body bag. With a cross body bag you have the mobility of your hands and the convenience of carrying your stuff comfortably. A wristlet or an envelope clutch will relieve you of carrying around junk and make room only for the essentials. Any of these styles in a range of colors and patterns are perfect for this season. Pack less to lighten your load this season.
You can have the perfect makeup, hair, clothes and shoes, but if you don’t have the right accessories, your perfect look becomes incomplete. Luckily, jewelry has been a hit in fashion. New jewelry companies are sprouting and doing phenomenally well! With statement earrings, collar necklaces, bracelet stacking and multi finger rings, the options are endless. “Arm Swag” is the biggest trend I have seen! People wearing multiple bracelets of all different colors and styles add a gorgeous concept and a dash of flair to even the simplest get up. Ears are the new eyes, or at least that’s what I’ve heard.
Shoes have been standing alone this season. They are bright, covered in spikes and have beautiful patterns of all kinds. Loafers have been a top pick this summer. These menswear shoes show off a feminine side, making it a closet essential no matter what your style is. Another fav is the flat form shoe. There have been many variations made in the form of a tennis shoe as well as a sandal. The flat form gives you a desired height with outstanding comfort. They are bound to turn heads wherever you step foot! Lastly, wedges have been seen everywhere. If there was a contest for the perfect shoe, the wedge would wear the crown. Whether you prefer wedge heels, sandals, booties or even high-end tennis shoes, stand out when you step out from now on.
