With the hotter months we find ourselves not only changing our wardrobes for lighter fabrics and brighter colours, but we also change up the kind of accessories we combine with our outfit choices. From lightweight scarves and bright coloured bags to canvas trainers and sun hats, summer accessories are their own category that is fun to mix and match from day to night. Here are some of our favourite summer accessories to add to your outfits today.
Colourful printed scarves are a great accessory for days when you need a pop of colour but also something that adds a bit of warmth or protection from the sun when needed. POM scarves are a must have item with their variety of prints and fun colours to add to any summer outfit.
Mishky bracelets are already a summer staple for us, but we are also loving their elegant glasses chains for the summer. Mix and match the bracelets for colourful stacks for your casual summer outfits and make sure to add your glasses chain for a touch of class and practicality to your outfit on your next day out at the beach.
For our summer shoes of choice, we love to alternate between a casual trainer and summery sandals and espadrilles. If you need a bit of support on a day out where you'll be walking, then definitely go for a white Veja trainer or a sporty running shoe from D.A.T.E. For dressier occasions or for a day at the beach we love a strappy sandal, the leopard print Ganni sandals are perfect for any occasion really, or a wedge heel espadrille from Castaner.
With bags it's fun to alternate between summery straw bags and smaller colourful shoulder bags when all you need is your basic essentials for an outing. The Anya Hindmarch straw bags are iconic, especially the fun new designs with the paper eyes or the adorable donkey basket. If you're looking for a smaller bag for a day in the city, Ganni's newest styles are perfect with the bright green colour or a touch of leopard print in the small duffle bag.
And of course, we can't forget about the importance of shielding our heads and faces from the sun with a trendy summer hat. Opt for a fun print with a Ganni wide rim bucket hat that adds a pop of colour as well as sun protection to any outfit. Or if you want a more traditional and romantic style summer hat, the Bellerose Parlo hat is a gorgeous straw hat with a ribbon to tie at the back or below your chin when you don't want the hat to blow away with the wind.
