Summer is well under way and there are certain fashion items that are reigning supreme everywhere; on the high street, at the festivals and even in the office. However you dress for everyday summer style, make sure at least one of these pieces takes pride of place in your wardrobe.
These are the gorgeous summer accessories we just can’t be without.
‘Why a parka for a summer accessory?’ you might ask. Because to the untrained eye, these ingenious items don’t at all resemble a traditional parka coat. Playsuit parkas are exactly as described – a fun and feminine playsuit that’s made from entirely waterproof material. They also come with a hood to eliminate the pain of carrying around umbrellas on unpredictable weather days. Dying to get your hands on one of these versatile beauties? Get them here.
Yep, brogues are back and looking better than ever. In recent years, gladiator sandals and peep toe wedges have been the summer footwear of choice but this year, it’s all about keeping covered and comfortable.
Brogues aren’t just to pair with your tights in winter, there are many summer variations that can make these work effortlessly well this season. Bright metallic brogues add zest to a simple vest and shorts outfit. Equally, black and white brogues reminiscent of 1920’s spats will keep summer dresses classy yet playful.
Pastels appear to be the colour scheme of choice in 2014 and they have never looked more scrumptious than when in handbag form. These are available in a rainbow of candy colours and look gorgeous with virtually any of your day-to-day outfits – including lemon and mint green! The gorgeous detailing on pastel satchels also mean they look formal enough for work but sweet and feminine enough for weekend trips. Bring on the ice cream parties!
Jazzy animal prints and unconventional frame shapes are our preferred shades this summer. Print sunglasses are ideal if you’re not keen to embrace head-to-toe patterns in your look. This year, we’re loving leopard and tribal print sunnies since they’re an easy way to inject an exotic safari style to your look with zero effort! As for embracing different shaped shades, geometric frames provide a cute retro look whilst cat eye sunglasses are great for channelling vintage Hepburn!
Together, these looks will help you nail summer style this year (even when the weather has other plans!). Depending on how you wear them, the right accessories can take you into different seasons – and every wardrobe can benefit from a little versatility.
