Summer is just around the corner and that means hotter days, longer nights and an excuse to go shopping. While we all love a new sundress or bikini, there is nothing like a trendy new accessory to breathe new life into your old favorites. Need some inspiration? We scoured the runways and Instagram alike to bring you the hottest accessories to spice up your summer look.
Rayban Sunglass, $185
All of the sudden, it seems like every Instagram it girl is sporting a pair of yellow sunglasses. While the tinted lenses aren’t the best for sun protection, they are perfect for wearing indoors or at night and looking too cool for school. Pair with your favorite black bodysuit and minimal makeup for extra cool points.
Doen Purse, $38
Take a cue from Ms. Jane Birkin herself and swap your black leather bag for a chic little basket. Another Instagram-driven trend, the basket purse is much lighter than a normal purse and lends a certain vintage feel to your summer ensemble. While Etsy is filled with vintage ones, fast fashion brands are starting to catch on to the trend as well.
Tassels have been around for a while now, and according to this season’s runway, are not going anywhere soon. They add an exotic flair to any look, and perfectly dress up a little white T shirt if you’re in a rush. They are begging to be worn with an off the shoulder top for a night out or a black bikini for a day at the beach.
The anklets you used to buy from Claire’s have grown up, and have made a return to the runways. Dainty anklets with charms add a touch of whimsy and fun to any summer look, and they wouldlook especially perfect nestled up in some strappy sandals.
