Spring is here, and so our thoughts are turning to our Summer wardrobes. While you probably don’t want to go out and buy a whole new summer wardrobe, there are plenty of pretty and stylish accessories that will update your look.
Mobile Phone Cases
Even in times when we are not using our handbags, we are never without our mobile phones. They have become a new fashion accessory, and so our mobile phone cases are very important and a real harbinger of our personal style. CG Mobile, who are stockists of great iPhone 12 pro case and other phone accessories have the perfect range of Karl Lagerfeld hard cases with liquid glitter that are both stylish and fun. The Choupette case, named for Karl’s legendary cat. is also fabulous. You can also find similarly decorative cases for Android phones.
Flowers in Hair
An easy and beautiful way to add a touch of summer to your outfit is by wearing flowers in your hair. For everyday errands like running to the supermarket or grabbing lunch with your kids, tuck a blossom from your garden behind your ear. If you are going to a fancier event like a wedding, or ladies day, check out the gorgeous floral hair accessories from FTD, like the Flowers ‘n’ Frills Hair Décor. This accessory is technically in the bridal section of the company’s website, but it can definitely be worn by anyone who is looking to add some color to her hairdo. Flowers like orange spray roses, pink hyacinth and mini green hydrangea are attached to an accent hair clip, which is easy to place in an up-do or braid.
A Lightweight Scarf
A terrific way to add some needed color to your outfit is with a lightweight and colorful scarf. Dress up your T-shirt and shorts by wrapping one around your neck. A bonus: a light scarf will keep the chill away in highly air-conditioned places like movie theaters and restaurants. You can also use colorful scarves as belts and as sarongs at the pool. When choosing summer scarves, steer clear of heavy materials and opt for cotton or silk.
Clip on a Cuff
Arm and ear cuffs are all the rage this summer according to InStyle. For the arm cuffs, you can either wear them dangling from your wrist or clinch them higher up on your arm. ShopBop sells a nice assortment of arm cuffs including a thin curved cuff that looks like a railroad spike. Floral cuffs are another great option that will dress up a sundress or even just a plain T-shirt and jeans. If you are bored with wearing the same old earrings every day, give your ears an updated summer look with ear cuffs; the clip on cuffs will make it look like you have multiple piercings.
Put on a Floppy Hat
When you are looking for an affordable and fun summertime accessory, look no further than a big floppy hat. The hat will keep the sun and its damaging UV rays off your face, and you can wear it to the pool, park or shops, quite literally anywhere. Nordstrom sells a nice selection of wide brim hats in a variety of colours. To make your hat look even more feminine, wrap one of your lightweight scarves around it, or on windy days at the beach use the scarf as a tie.
Stack Friendship Bracelets
Relive your childhood and make some friendship bracelets with an adult twist. Instead of tying dozens of knots in thread, follow the instructions on The Craft and crochet some colourful bracelets. All that you need is embroidery thread and a small crochet hook. Once you have created some bracelets, stack them up on your wrists and voila — you will have added a dash of summertime fun to your arm.
