The weather has finally started to warm up, the sun is out and it’s almost time to start baring your flesh. Whilst you might be worried about topping up your tan after the long Cool winter, by choosing the perfect accessories for summer you can ensure that you look great and feel even more confident! Follow our quick rules for summer accessorising and you’ll be beach-ready in no time.
#1. Channel boho chic
Boho is very much alive and kicking – combine it with cool, surfer style accessories and you have a winning combination that is perfect for hot summer days. Adjustable leather bracelets with silver or gold charms look as good on the beach as they do teamed with jeans and a vest top for a spot of shopping in London, and plaited bracelets are hot this season! Wrap bracelets in hues of turquoise and green look beautiful on almost any skin tone, or opt for vibrant coral beaded bracelets to complement dark hair and eyes.
#2. Leave your Fossil watch at home
If you’re headed to the beach, leave your expensive jewellery at the hotel. Sun, sea and sand are a great combination, but not so good when it comes to your Fossil watch or Pandora bracelet. Layer up fun, summer-friendly styles such as leather and bead bracelets and chunky silver accessories and you won’t even miss your usual designer brands.
#3. It’s all in the detail
This season, fabric jewellery is stepping out of the shadows and can be seen adorning the wrists and necks of fashionistas across the country. From silk beaded bracelets with handcrafted metal charms to bracelets made from vintage fabric featuring glass or resin cabochons, fabric jewellery is fantastic for the summer months – with most designs you can even wear them in the sea! Funky detailed embroidered cuffs and pendants look perfect with maxi dresses or shorts and a vest for a bold, vibrant look. Often these detailed pieces cannot be mass produced by huge retailers so find online stores like shopping mallorca that can offer much more unique pieces to suit your taste. The success of the smaller retailers is living proof of how people no longer want to settle for off the shelf mass produced products.
#4. Pretty in Pastel
Pretty, pastel hues are great for summer accessories – or you could head for the other end of the spectrum and choose acid brights! Whichever floats your boat, coloured accessories are a must this summer. Beach bags in pretty pastel shades of peach and mint green look great with gladiators in baby blue or soft grey – add a floral hairband or head scarf for a chic look. Electric lime shoppers and citrus jewellery brighten up any Monday morning, so even if you have to go to work whilst your friends are on holiday, you’ll look and feel great.
Summer accessorising is supposed to be fun – so let your imagination run wild, add colours, patterns and layers of accessories for a creative look!
