The Wardrobe Accessories You Need This Summer

Posted on - in Me-Time Journal

Summer is just around the corner, and whether you’re a daughter, mom, or grandmother, you deserve to look your best when the sun is shining. We’ve all got those go-to summer pieces that we love to wear, so there’s no reason to head out the stores to buy a truckload of new clothes (though feel free if you’re so inclined!). What we should be focusing on is our accessories; mix these up, and your outfit will always look fresh, even if you’re just wearing the same old dress you’ve always won! Here’s your run through of the pieces you need this summer.



Keep the Breeze Away

With a bit of luck, we’ll have a summer of never-ending warmth. The nights will be just the right temperature for us to stay out well into the night, looking up at the stars. However, even the warmest evenings can turn into nights with a bit of a chill, and we don’t want to be pushed indoors just because we’re starting to feel the cold! Invest in a light scarf and a light wrap, and you’ll be able to keep the breeze away. For the evenings, that’s what that old hoodie you’ve had for years comes in handy….

Hats, Hats, Hats

Just like music, there is a hat for every occasion. If you’re a hat wearer, then the sky’s the limit! There’s the hat for the beach days, the one for when you’re running out and about town, the one’s for the casual parties…and so on and so on. If you’re planning on going to the beach often, then the best one for you is the big floppy hat: the one that’ll make sure the sun’s kept out of your eyes, that your hair isn’t messed up too much, and which can be tossed about without being ruined. Perfect!


Bags for Every Occasion

Just like hats, there’s a whole catalog of bags that’ll you want to add to your summer arsenal. What kind of events will you be going to this summer: beach events, BBQs, casual parties? There’s a bag for everything! More important than the style is the coloring! Let’s go for bright, colorful bags. You have to settle for plain and boring during the winter, summer is the time to showcase your personality to the world, and that means much color!


Sparkle in the Sun

Some summer accessories are there to help us function: some others are there to make us look out dazzling best. Fashion jewellry is one of these things; invest in the right jewellery this summer and you’ll stand out in any crowd. Adding a few subtle – or not to subtle – pieces to our necks, wrists, and ears will add a touch of class to our outfits. Whether it’s a new piece or a classic, jewellery is the best way to ensure you get all the right kinds of attention this summer!



Sunglasses are so much more than just protection for our eyes, though of course, they are that too. They’re versatile, and there’s a pair for every type of outfit. Before buying sunglasses, it’s important to find the right type of sunglasses for your face shape. Mix it up, though, and buy a few pairs. You’ll be wearing them every day (we hope!), so it’s worth splashing the cash to make sure you get the ones that are perfect for you!



For the Feet

What you wear on your feet aren’t really accessories, but the rules kind of go out of the window during summer! You’re not wearing shoes because you have to, you’re picking what you wear based on the weather, where you’re going, and so on. Wedge sandals will be an essential part of your wardrobe this summer, as will the almighty flip-flops! Though of course, there’s nothing better than being barefoot when you’re lounging in the grass or strolling along the beach.

Tech to Record It All

What’s that you’re wearing on your wrist? Ah, it’s a waterproof holder for your iPhone! It’s not summer unless you’re able to capture the moments. You’ll be taking so many photos, your devices will be the final piece of the jigsaw that is your outfit. They’re more than your phone: they’re an opportunity to show another piece of yourself! Invest in a new, summer-themed cover for your phone and you’ll be radiating good seasonal vibes with every step you take!


And there you have, everything you need for a great summer. Let’s hope it’s a good one!
