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.


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.


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.


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.



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.


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.


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.

Vancouver Fashion Jobs – Summer Acccessories

Wednesday, June 12th, 2013

Summer time is the one season you are truly able to express your individual style without having to cover up with layers upon layers of winter garb (since Canada really only has two seasons). Whether your style is bohemian, glam or vintage, we all share one common ground, accessories. There is no better way to express your true style than with a few fun pieces and this summer, we have plenty to choose from. One fashion crime that many people commit –I’ll admit I’ve done it too- is adding way too many accessories to your outfit. People shouldn’t hear you coming from a mile away, so remember what your mother always told you, and always take two pieces off before leaving the door. Adding a simple statement necklace or a headpiece to your outfit could defiantly take your look from ordinary to extraordinary without all the extra baggage. So this summer, have fun with your look by mixing and matching some of the season’s hottest trends in jewelry.

1. Forever 21 Colour blocked pyramid bracelet $6.80
2. Forever 21 Cut out filigree cuff $5.80
3. H&M Hair decoration $6.95
4. Urban Outfitters Sunrise geo necklace $18
5. H&M Necklace $14.95
6. Sweet Harriet Golden bowtie necklace $31.39
