Summer Accessories

Sunnier, warmer days have finally arrived, and if you’re like most people, you probably can’t wait to put away all the bulky sweaters, boots, and other cold-weather essentials. With spring in full swing and summer just around the corner, it’s that time of the year to give your closet an overhaul and bring it up to date.

While you’re at it, you may also want to hit a refresh button on your accessory collection and make a style upgrade. After all, accessories make an outfit feel complete, and regardless of what you’re wearing, your ensemble could always benefit from an add-on or two. Below are five perfect summer accessories to make your fashion statement.

Refreshingly bright, oversized earrings

Chunky accessories always stay in style, and summer is the ideal time to go bright and bold in jewelry. Since you’ll wear your hair up often due to warm weather, you can make a bold fashion statement with colorful, oversized earrings.

Going for coral-hued tassels, neutral flowers, or colorful beads will refresh any summer ensemble. They’ll also add that much-needed oomph to an otherwise simple #ootd.

A perfect pair of radiant sunnies

Just like winter, summer has its own weather-specific staples. It is the season of halter tops, off-shoulder tees, maxi dresses, stylish skirts, and Bermuda shorts. You can never have enough of these, and one look at MODA clothes collections is all you need to keep your summer wardrobe up to date.

To accentuate these warm-weather staples, you want to use your jewelry strategically. While earrings can definitely help, only some people are fans of big, dangly jewelry. Sunglasses are a great alternative to bring attention to your top and break up the monotony. Bonus points for mirrored and tinted lenses for your summer sunnies.

A charmingly cute crossbody bag

Summer is full of different activities to be enjoyed. Whether it includes going for a bike ride, heading out for ice cream, or indulging in a shopping spree at the mall, you want your hands to be accessible for exploring. A hands-free crossbody bag is a must-have in your summer accessories collection, so be sure to look for one when changing your wardrobe from winter to spring/summer.

Not only does it help you keep all those small necessities in place and at arm’s reach, but it’s also relatively compact, not to mention charmingly cute. Round models are ideal for summer, while handwoven rattan numbers are perfect for infusing your outfits with an authentic summer vibe.

A wide-brim hat for optimal shade

Whether you’re heading out for a walk in the park, swimming at the pool or beach, or simply love to sunbathe, there’s one summer accessory you should never leave your home without – a hat. More specifically, a wide-brim hat. Not only does a large hat help protect your hair and eyes, and it makes a stylish statement, especially when paired with white and floral outfits. It’ll also add that boho flair and a relaxing vibe to any ensemble.

If a wide-brim number isn’t your fave, perhaps you can jump on the bandwagon and get a bucket hat. Trendy and chic bucket hats go with any face shape and are a great choice regardless of your hairstyle.

Chunky platform heels to keep you stylish and comfy

Heels have a specific charm and are really nice to look at. The thing is, they’re not exactly the definition of comfortable. Now, that doesn’t mean you should reach for sneakers. When in doubt, a pair of chunky platform heels is all you need to complete your summer outfits while looking put-together.

Depending on your outfit, you can break up a monochromatic look with a shoe in a vibrant hue or reach for a nude number so that the rest of your outfit pops. The best part? They’re perfect for taking your outfit from day to night. Just swap a few pieces, add a clutch, and you’re ready for a night on the town.

Fairweather calls for lightweight accessories.

As you go through your summer wardrobe and decide which updates to make, consider your summer accessories as well. With the right outfit add-ons, getting dressed in the morning will be a breeze. It’ll also help set the mood for the entire day so you can feel your best, confident self.
