For many women the summer style season is already in full swing. As we all get ready to change up our look for the summer season, there is no better time to begin finding those perfect accessories that can top off any summer outfit. Here is a list of our top five essential summer accessories that are must buys for the season.
1. A Good Pair of Sunnies
Summer time means plenty of sun, so make sure you are prepared with a great pair of sunnies. Sunglasses are the must-have accessory for summer and they can easily help you change up your look, no matter what events and activities are on your schedule. You can rock your favorite designer pair of sunglasses that goes with everything, or change up your look with a pair of sunglasses to match every outfit.
2. The Summer Clutch
A summer clutch is so important for the season and one of those must have accessories that can really take you anywhere. The right summer clutch should be perfect for day-to-night and be big enough to fit all of your essentials, yet small enough that you can carry it with one hand, no matter where your summer adventures take you. Straw is always a classic staple during summer, especially for smaller handbags. A straw clutch can be great for summer weddings and events and for a mid-day lunch outside with friends. Personally, we love straw bags with just a little fun pop of color, such as our Palmera bags—after all it is summer time!
3. A Great Pair of Flats
The summer season is all about adventure and seeing where your day takes you, make sure you are prepared with a pair of comfortable, yet stylish flats. The flat shoe has recently made a comeback and this summer it is all about tassels, pomp oms, lace up designs and chic gold styling. Whether you prefer a strappy sandal, or a pointed toe flat, make sure that you have a few colorful, yet comfortable pairs in your closet to compliment your favorite summer looks—after a day and night on your feet, you will be happy you did.
4. A Pop of Color
No matter what accessory you prefer, one that has a bold pop of color in it is always a must for the summer season. Summer is such a great time to experiment with new colors and patterns and to take some risks with your outfits. Bright oranges, purples, yellows, pinks and blues are all so fun for summer and can be incorporated into your look in a variety of ways. A nice bracelet or statement-making earrings are always a great way to add color to an outfit, but our personal favorite is with a bold bag such as those in our Agua Santa collection.
5. The Carry All Tote
Totes are great no matter what time of year it may be, but they are particularly useful in the summer. A great tote can take you through a day full of errands or straight to the beach and you can have anything inside that you need, whether it’s a tablet, extra pair of sunglasses, a light sweater for dinner, sunscreen or even a change of clothing. The right tote should not only be big and open, but it should be made of a strong material that can withstand anything you throw at it—no matter what your day may bring.
