Why do Accessories Matter?
As a fashion blogger I’ve come to learn the importance of accessories and how they play a major role in our fashion lives. They are more significant than many may think. Many times I find myself shopping for accessories as I do for clothes if not more. As the fashion guru Giorgio Armani once said, “Accessories are important and becoming more and more important every day”.
Accessories are the Key to Life and Fashion!
Now alright people. Just because the temperature is up… and I do mean up! It doesn’t mean that your accessory game has to take a backseat. Take it from me, there are plenty of ways to turn up the heat (no pun intended) on your summer looks, without losing your cool. Look no further than these few summer accessories to jazz up your swag with this season.
1. STATEMENT JEWELRY PIECES
With the battle of humidity this year, keep it easy and chic by pairing a high pony, top-knot, braids etc… with classic hoops, tasseled earrings and dangling shapes. One bold piece can go a long way with your outfit. But if you’re like me and do not wear earnings, pull out a bold, bright statement piece necklace, those are always an eye catcher!
2. BAMBOO PURSES: CLUTCHES, CROSSBODY, HANDBAGS purse
Summer is all about keeping it light and easy. Now let’s be honest: no one wants to carry a duffel-bag everywhere they go… that is not the business, OK! This season, ditch the tote and opt for the new trendy bamboo wicker bag. You can get it in a crossbody bag, clutch, or just a simple handbag. Not only will it lighten your load, but it’ll brighten up your everyday style with an effortless day-to-night look.
3. STATEMENT SLIDES
It seems like this fashion season, slides have quickly become a major wardrobe staple! I love the modern, simple straps of slides, making them the perfect option for running out the door in a hurry without sacrificing style. Slides that make a statement with patterns, embellishments, or metallic features are definitely a summer favorite! It’s the perfect shoe to dress up casual jeans and a basic tee, while also being chic enough to wear with your favorite summer dresses.
4. SUMMER-READY SCARVES
Do you ever wonder why scarves never go out of style? Well I will tell you why… they are a timeless accessory that works in any season. For spring and summer months you can wear them in lightweight fabrics. You can dress them up with your dress, blouses, pants, etc… OR, you can even wear them around your head to give your hair some fashion. The sky is the limit!
