Summer is the perfect time to play with all kinds of fun accessories since there are just so many types of occasions to dress for! Is there a wedding coming up? A beach day? A picnic in the park? The types of accessories you choose for each one of these events will be completely different, so you’re free to experiment with styles throughout the season. Since accessories are generally pretty inexpensive, you can also pack a solid bang for your buck with several options to spice up your summer wardrobe. Read on to see the seven accessories I’ve picked that are sure to be on all of this season’s must-have accessory lists.

1

Retro Sunnies
This pair of cat-eye sunglasses from Mango would be the perfect complement to any beach attire. The pop of red makes them unique from the many neutral shades on the market right now and adds just the right amount of colour to any summer outfit.

2

Espadrilles
Think of espadrilles as your summer alternative to sneakers! Either in a wedge heel or a flat, these warm-weather shoes are super comfortable for walking around and keeping you looking stylish.

3Statement Earrings
With this trend, you can really find a pair out there as wild as your imagination will take you. With beads, fringe, feathers or metals, a dramatic pair of attention-grabbing earrings makes a bold statement this summer.

4

Chic Sun Hat
A fashionable accessory that also protects your skin from the sun is a double win for me. The bigger the brim the better, as some of this season’s latest versions are supersized for ultimate style.

 

5

Woven Bag
Take a page out of classic French Girl style and choose a simple woven bag for all your beach essentials. You can also opt to keep your valuables safe inside a smaller pouch and use it as an alternative to your day to day handbag.

6

Logo Slides
Plastic slides are no longer just dedicated to beachside and poolside fashion. They add a relaxed, cool-girl vibe to any outfit this summer, and are just about as comfortable as you can get without leaving the house in slippers.

7

A multipurpose Scarf
Tie one on your purse, in your hair or around your wrist – the options are endless! A silk scarf in a bright print can liven up even a simple look and make it look effortlessly pulled together.

Fashion Jobs – The Party Bags Worth Investing In

Monday, February 12th, 2018

For the nights when we don’t want to put effort into our clothes, show a lot of skin and most likely be underdressed, there is a bag that will veto your entire outfit choice and still make you the standout star you know you are. It’s not just about having the perfect dress or standout outfit these days, but your accessories, especially the bag, has to have a voice and it better scream “SLAY”. The party bag compliments but is regarded separately to the outfit and carries its own confidence and attitude. This is where you would be at a work function dressed very demure, but the bag is breaking all the rules and making sure you are seen and heard. We have done the work and rounded up our favourite breakout party bags everyone must try.

Velvet Crush
We’re starting the list off with a bang with this show-stopping purple velvet bag.  This is for the sophisticated, classy party where one hand is solely dedicated to your party bag and the other hold your glass of champagne while you mingle with guests.

Marble Feels
If you’re going for that futuristic sleek look, this is the bag for you. Pair it with your favorite girls night out dress and don’t be afraid to wear colour; you will definitely be a standout with a splash of drama.

Vintage Vibes
There’s something about wearing something from the past in the present that gives you ultimate street cred. We love this retro throwback wrist bag, giving all the disco diva vibes.  Throw on your LBD, sky-high heels, and gold hoops for the ultimate party look.

Boho Babe
The easy breezy boho babe is versatile and ventures out in her style while still keeping true to her relaxed roots. This is the perfect party bag for her with stone accents and a brass metal exterior giving a regal look and cool-girl vibes.
