Stylish New Accessories for Summer- Women’s Style Guide
A few new Accessories for Summer
As the summer season approaches, women will be shopping for new clothes, along with accompanying accessories. More than just a purse or a pair of sunglasses, the potential list of accessories is extensive when all options are considered. Here are some possible accessories to go with those new summer styles.
A straw hat is important at the beach or in the sun. For sports events or errands, a cotton cap goes with most summery outfits. Casual attire can be accented with a colorful bandana, while a classy lightweight hat makes the perfect accessory at formal events like weddings or graduations.
Decorative ribbons, ponytail clasps, floral sprigs, and head bands are perfect for warm weather attire. Hair shampoos that remove chlorine or sand particles come in handy, too. Hair coloring highlights, extensions, or faux braids add a nice touch for special events.
Summertime makeup is generally light and utilizes pastel shades, although evening dress-up events call for a bolder look. Either way, specific cosmetics can definitely create a seasonal look that goes with various outfits for day or evening wear.
Aside from the cliché seashell jewelry, which is cute in its own right, there are plenty of summer styles of jewelry that can dress up shorts and a top or a nice sun dress. Light colors of lightweight metals or even plastic, wood, or beads add a festive touch to summery clothing, and seasonal themes make the jewelry even more interesting.
Silk or nylon scarves can trim out a cotton or linen dress for summer parties and evening events. Worn over the hair, around the neck, or draped over the shoulders, light scarves are the perfect seasonal accent.
Fabric tied or cord belts are popular with jean shorts or capris. Chain belts are another classic style. Sun dresses often come with a matching belt, but if not, a color coordinated wide ribbon could be used instead.
There are countless types of summer shoes to shop for. Sandals are the big item, of course, and they come in hundreds of styles, including flip flops, tie-ups, buckle, and Velcro designs. White or colorful canvas shoes are a big hit at sporting events or outdoor activities, although they are fine indoors, too. A leather flat works well for dressy occasions.
Straw or canvas bags work great for vacations, summer school, or running errands. They can be small clutch purses or larger styles with handles for carrying books, crafts, and a change of clothes, in addition to whatever else may be needed. An article on bra cases here.
With so many styles to choose from, many people have more than one pair. Frames can be traditional colors and shapes, or totally offbeat in colorful plastics that encircle large, small, or medium lenses that are UV-safe to protect the eyes.
Keeping an umbrella in the car or ready at home is a good idea during the summer. Not only practical, an umbrella can be cute and make its own fashion statement or promote a particular business. Just ask Victoria’s Secret.
A midriff-baring, short-sleeved sweater or a nylon transparent shoulder wrap make nice add-ons to evening wear or whenever the summer weather turns cool. For casual wear, a cotton or polyester hoodie in the color of choice is a great take-along for any activity. Keep one handy wherever you go, just in case.
Summer fashion is more than shorts or a sun dress. It’s a complete look that includes any or all of the above. Preparing a wardrobe ahead of time may land the best deals and leading styles.
