It’s summer again. Is your wardrobe ready?
What about your jewelry box? Your accessory drawer? Your makeup bag? You’re — you get the idea.
The lead-in to summer is the perfect time for personal reinvention. And what better way to kick off the season of reinvention with a clutch of new must-have accessories?
Here’s what you need to start this summer off on the right foot.
1. Modular Sunglasses:
Modular what now?
Modular sunglasses, friend. It’s one of those ideas whose time should have come long, long ago. Let’s just be happy that we’re finally there.
Modular sunglasses are ideal for summer wear. They’re affordable. Most parts are easy to swap out if lost or broken. They look fashionable. Higher-end versions are luxe enough to confuse for custom eyewear.
The blunt bottom line: If you don’t have at least one pair of modular sunglasses in your summer accessory bag, your summer accessory bag is not complete.
2. A Signature Ring:
Have you been waiting for the perfect time to make a stunning addition to your jewelry collection? That time has come, and your beachgoing buds are simply dying to know what you’ve chosen.
Let them gawk — and let them emulate you if that’s where this is going. You deserve a second look; your new summer ring is the surest way to earn it.
3. Waterproof Sandals:
Want to dip your toes into the water without feeling the squishes or scratches or stings of whatever lies beneath? You need a pair of rugged waterproof sandals built to hold up to the roughest rocks, shells, and — erm — creatures you’re likely to find at your local beach or river bottom.
4. A Full-Brimmed Hat (Not a Cap)
She’s got a point. If you’re a perennial sunburn victim, strutting out in a stylish, full-brimmed hat isn’t solely a matter of seeing and being seen. It’s also about preserving the youthful glow you so prize, not to mention staving off the more serious ills that accompany a lifetime of sun exposure.
So, grab that festive fedora or wide-brimmed straw hat you’ve been eying and add it to your summer accessory bag. Just make sure it offers full coverage; your typical front-brimmed hat won’t do.
5. A Light Shell or Windbreaker:
For those days and nights when it’s not quite mild enough to step out in a sleeveless dress or form-fitting tee, there’s the next best thing: a stylish light shell or windbreaker that doubles as a rain shield. Of course, if you’re planning a mountain retreat or far-northern adventure this summer, you may need something stiffer.
What’s in Your Collection This Season?
These five summer accessory ideas should get your creative juices flowing, but don’t take them as gospel. After all, you’re in control of your own look this summer. What works flawlessly for your neighbor might not work like a charm for you, and that’s A-OK.
So, what are you waiting for? It’s time to step up your summer accessory game — and let your inner fashion pro shine.
