Now that Summer is officially in full swing, I thought that now would be the perfect time to talk to you guys about my favorite styles for my favorite season! As you all already know, I read each and every comment someone writes to me on my Instagram photos or blog posts & hat I have overwhelmingly noticed over the past few months is that there have been sooooo many questions and comments on my accessories, whether it be my sunglasses, headbands, or (my personal favorite) my belt bags!
This year’s trends have been heavily influenced by our fashion past- the 70s, 80s, and 90s are making a huge comeback this year, so keeping up with them can be quite daunting.
But don’t worry, I’ve spent so much (maybe too much) time researching, curating and finding the best looks of the season, so you guys don’t have to stress! In my opinion, the right accessories are the key to any amazing look and can make even the simplest of outfits stand out in a crowd.
- Micro/Odd Sunglasses
Sunglasses are an obvious essential for a summer accessory, but they can be so much more than just practical! I personally use them to add so much swag to my look – its kinda an extension of my outfit itself. With a very persistent retro wave setting in, more narrow sunglasses are super in right now, but I’m digging the peculiar and micro pairs too. Shopbop has an amazing collection from which I often soothe my cravings for sunglasses.
As you may have noticed, headbands are all the rave right now (especially on my Instagram ahha). Not only are they super chic and trendy, but they also keep your hair completely off your face (which is a must in the Summer months!) Whether you wear it around your head or in your hair, with your hair down in waves or up in a bun, you can never go wrong with throwing a headband on to add some flare to any outfit, night or day!
- Hoop Earrings
I know, I know. Statement earrings? For Summer? Revolutionary. But, I swear, they are still on trend and still making waves! Especially with this whole “blast from the past” vibe going on, hoops are making a huge comeback right now. Regardless of if your style is more street or more contemporary, hoop earrings can add something classic, yet funky to a Summer look. Personally, I love pairing some gold hoops with a cute, patterned headband that I talked about above!
- Belt bags
Lastly, my infamous belt bags are finally making the blog! If any of you keep up with my Instagram photos and stories, you will already know how obsessed I am. These are easily my most favorite trend of the season and I am so glad they are back in style now. To be honest, I just can’t be bothered carrying a shoulder or handbag with me every day, since I often just need a few essentials on a regular basis that can easily fit in a small bag like this. You can also style belt bags in a ton of ways—sometimes I tie it across my body instead of around my waist and I think it looks super cool!
6. Flats With Sass
Summer is meant to have fun and I plan on doing so with my shoes too. Discovered these absolutely gorgeous (and eccentric) pair of Josefinas and I knew I had to them. And basically every other sassy shoe ever made for my wardrobe in 2018.
Now that I’ve shared with you my favorite accessories of the season, I would love to hear yours! Comment below if you have any tips and tricks for looking cool in this heat, I am always looking for the next big thing.
