Essential Summer Accessories

June 17, 2022

Although the first day of summer technically isn’t until June 21st, the recent rising temperatures and happy vibes could’ve fooled me!

As someone who is obsessed with fashion, summer is one of my favorite seasons to experiment with different looks, especially boho styles. One of my favorite ways to play up any outfit is by adding cute accessories that take my look up a notch. Here are some of my essential go-to accessories during the warmer months and here are specific styles on trend that are also perfect additions to your boho wardrobe.

 

Hats

Hats are essential during the summer to protect you from the sun’s harmful rays, but they’re also a cute addition to any outfit! Bucket hats are super in this year and are perfect for achieving the 90s/y2k look that’s so hot right now. In addition to the bucket hats, the floppy sun hats are always in style and as someone who has had trouble in the past with finding sun hats for large heads – I can attest to the power of the visor floppy sun hats. Check out two of my favorite brands that cater to different sized hats.

 

Sunglasses

Sunnies are a must during the summer, and there are tons of affordable options for under $20 on Amazon. If you are looking for an affordable brand to purchase multiple options (which is ideal for those going to lots of festivals this summer) check out SOJOS sunglasses – a very popular brand on Amazon. In addition to SOJOS, I love Quay and Ray Bans for stylish sunglasses. So stock up on a few fun pairs and keep them in your purse, your car, and anywhere else you might need them!

 

Sandals

Sandals are the ultimate summer shoe and always look cute, whether you prefer heels or flats. As we know, chunky sandals and heels are in and I hope they are here to stay for more than just this summer! Either way, they provide a far more comfortable elevated look to your casual day to day summer fits. Wedges are also making a comeback this summer, which is great news for tall girls who want to show off their height even more! If you are like myself and have trouble finding larger sizes in sandals, check out my tall girl shoe guide to find stylish sandals in sizes 11 & up!

Bags

Whether it is a date night, grabbing drinks with your friends after work, or simply a fun day out, we all need our bags! This summer, I am prioritizing the light and neutral purses to brighten and lighten my day to day look into evening wear. I love the nineties shoulder purses for a date night which is why I love this affordable white shoulder bag! As a beachy boho girl, I LOVE this straw clutch for summertime and vacay, and the best part is it’s under $20! Additionally, this nineties inspired boho bag will be sure to stand out in any wardrobe!
