As the weather warms up, its time to pull out your favorite pair of shorts and don your favorite sundress. And though your closet may be well stocked with fun and flirty outfits for the season, you may be lacking when it comes to accessories. Some accessories so perfectly embody the spirit of summer that they can dress up any outfit, no matter how formal or casual. Here are some summer appropriate accessory ideas for every woman.
Shoes are one of the best summer time accessories you can have for your wardrobe. If you are thinking about putting an outfit together then you should start with your shoes first. Your shoes are the accessory that sets up the whole tone of your outfit.
Summer is the season in which you spend the most time outdoors, so it’s important that you protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays. A sun hat is the perfect accessory to wear with nearly any casual outfit, and it will protect the delicate skin on your face from being damaged by UV and UVA rays. A floppy, Audrey Hepburn inspired hat is perfect with a flowing maxi dress or a flirtatious cocktail dress, while a cute, straw cowgirl style hat goes neatly with a swimsuit or pair of shorts. Designer Trina Turk has several fashionable sunhats in her summer line that are both classy and cute.
Hair flowers can accessorize any hair style and help pull your hairstyle and outfit together. Both whimsical and elegant, flowers are the perfect homage to summer’s nature-inspired style. Stock up on flowers in a variety of colors and styles, so that you have a flower to wear with every outfit.
Sunglasses are always the must-have accessory for summer, protecting your eyes from the harsh glare of the sun. You can never own too many pairs of sunglasses, and having a pair to match any outfit is essential for the fashion-conscious female. Even just paring your collection to a pair of brown, a pair of black, and a pair of white sunglasses will ensure your eyewear will mesh with every summer outfit. Large, oversized glasses are all the rage this season, and complement most face shapes.
Summertime seems to bring out the inner bohemian in women, and earthy jewelry is becoming an increasingly popular trend. From cocktail rings made of turquoise to necklaces made of wooden beads, summer is the perfect time to don jewelry made of the elements found in nature. Wood and stone jewelry looks great when paired with both bright and earth tones, making this trend a versatile look.
