2013 Summer Accessories

As the temperature starts heating up, so does our love for summer and the popular accessories it brings. Here are a few of our favorite accessories to incorporate into your wardrobe this season.

You can never go wrong with a classy clutch, but this summer try to mix things up with a bright-colored bag or patterned purse to add a little spice to any outfit. Dress it down during the day with a maxi dress and gladiator sandals, or dress it up at night with a short black skirt and heels. Clutches are perfect for any outfit or occasion.

Of course, you can’t have a chic clutch without loud statement jewelry – sure to be one of summer’s hottest styles! Bold necklaces can complete any summer ensemble, from flashy metallics for a modern look to gem-infused jewels with an ultra-Boho feel. Necklaces aren’t the only accessories worth flaunting though – fun bracelets, rings and earrings can all make an eye-catching announcement as well. Wrap bracelets are easy to mix and match with bangles and other items, making them a summer must-have accessory.

Another timeless trend is a sun hat for those sizzling days spent by the pool. There is nothing better than suiting up and getting your tan on while still protecting your skin and looking stylish.

We can’t wait to show off our favorite summer accessories! What are some of yours?
