Summer is the season to look and feel good. Whether you’re jetting off for holidays in the sun or enjoying the buzz back home, having the right wardrobe for every occasion is important. If yours needs a little sprucing up before peak season arrives, here are some of the best accessories to complement your summer outfits.
A timepiece on your wrist is a good look all year round but, in summer, it’s a great way to finish off a classy look. Watches work with day or night outfits and help to bring out your sense of style and occasion.
Textile straps and colourful accents go well with bright summer colours, while smaller cases also work well to give a lightweight appearance and not detract from your outfit. If you do plan on accessorising in this way, though, it might be worth exploring watch insurance if yours holds a lot of value.
Besides their practicality, belts do wonders in pulling together an outfit. They help to combine daring colours from top to bottom or break up looks with only one. Bright shades are a clean contrast to neutral outfits, while blacks, browns and earthy tones go well with bolder styles.
Belts can be the finishing touch to many different outfits, making them a must-have in your wardrobe. In summer, they are fantastic accessories to highlight your shape if you want to show it off.
Every summer ensemble should encompass a pair of sunglasses. Even if you don’t use them, they’re another point of emphasis to bolster your look. They’re brilliant at adding personality to your outfit.
Going for sophistication? Choose a traditional pair that suit your hair colour and face shape. Going for edgy? Opt for unusual shapes and colours to add some funk to your attire.
Hats are some of the most underused accessories but they can shift the whole dynamic of certain outfits. Special occasions can be more suitable for headwear, so picking the right environment to wear them is key.
Trilbies and fedoras are great for all genders, while floppy sun hats are a firm favourite for ladies on hot sunny days. A humble baseball cap can work with many casual outfits no matter your style.
Using accessories to complement your summer outfits is important to show off your sense of style while the sun shines. Add some items to your wardrobe this year and make the most of the warmer months to try out some new combinations. Enjoy!
