I love summer. Who doesn’t? But I have to admit that I hate the rat race. There is so much to do and not enough time to do it before the sun comes, and the worst thing that can happen is to not be ready. When it comes to hitting the beach in a bikini I´d need to hit a gym months in advance. The thought of all those perfectly toned girls sitting next to me is enough to make me shiver (as I reach for another ice cream though…). But, getting ready for the summer doesn’t have to be difficult, especially when you´re letting your clothes do the talking! In fact, I followed these accessory tips this year and couldn’t have been happier.
There is no better way to stand out from the crowd than with bold earrings. They are hard to get right because they can look tacky if you don’t pick the perfect ones. But, if you do they can transform your look in a very subtle way. When summer hits, go with jewels that are light and transparent for the best effect. Statement earrings are risky, but they are well worth it so give them a chance.
But it has to be said that bold earrings are not for everyone. So you could instead opt for a simple and elegant gold stud. Stud earrings work with every kind of outfit, are pretty enough to catch the eye, but are also appropriate for both work and casual wear. If you choose gold, they look forever elegant and stylish, and can work for all ages. Wear simple gold studs, with a statement tee and skinny jeans for the ultimate Jane Birken, cool girl style. A stud can also make a statement if you opt for a 1980’s, button style, worn with the ultimate little black dress. I love the pair below from Aurate New York, which look incredible, especially when worm with multiple piercings.
I love my shoes, but when summer turns up, it’s like I have to forget about them for the season. That is unless you pick sandals and flats that are bold. They don’t have to be crazy different, so embellished sandals with a quirky design are a fantastic option.
Nothing grabs attention like a tattoo. They are instantly recognisable and make people think, mainly because a lot of people want one but don’t have the guts. Here’s a little tip: you don’t need the guts either. Temporary tattoos are a great alternative for people who have always wanted one, but who don’t want to mark their body permanently in the process. They look legitimate so no one will ever know the difference, but after a couple of months it will start to fade away.
Rings And Watches
There is no better look than a subtle watch and ring combination. If you do it correctly, it is a style that is perfect for the summer. Go for real silver or gold rings and watches, and the more metal, the better. Silver tends to be the best option because it is a lot easier to combine with your style, plus fake gold can look tacky. Wear them t-shirts or casual dresses for the best look.
Get a dress or a t-shirt that you don’t wear anymore and attack it with the scissors. Stylish vests are hard to come by, so a DIY vest is a fantastic alternative. You can have the style that you have always wanted, plus it doesn’t cost you any extra. Even better, it´s lots of fun! Upcycling of your old clothing is a way to get something new, at no cost at all, leaving you with a totally unique piece that will have everyone asking ‘where did you get that?’
Long necklaces complement your style perfectly. They look great with simple t-shirts and tank tops, plus they don’t touch your skin that is a must for summer accessories.
