Accessories are the easiest way to update your style for a new season. Plus, warmer weather means less clothing, and less clothing means more details, right? No matter what aesthetic draws you in, here’s what to wear and carry this season.
Rocker girls have a slight disadvantage in the summertime. With leather jackets and flannels put away in favor of more summer-ready cutoffs and tanks, accessories become your main form of rebellious expression. Make animal-print accents and tough metals your go-to add-ons. Then throw on a pair of oversized sunglasses for the proverbial look-at-me/don’t-look-at-me rock-star appeal.
Boho girls feel right at home in the sun. Fringe, feathers, and head wraps will all come into play in completing your summer look. Since piled-on accessories tend to define boho style, stick to neutrals and earthy tones. Get your pop of color with rose-tinted glasses, and don’t be afraid to wear as many bracelets as will fit—not limited to forearms.
For girly girls, it’s all about the subtle details. Polish off a girly look with florals, lace accents, and delicate jewelry. Sometimes a fine-chain necklace or a glamorous hairclip is all the accessorizing you need to get your style across. Clutches are the perfect expression of minimalism in femininity, and they present a great opportunity to show off a dainty gold cuff. Pastels are having a huge moment, so don’t be afraid to snag this Rebecca Minkoff mini bag in every color.
With the varsity trend on the rise, sporty girls have more options now than ever. Think pop-art colors, neons, and bold colorblocking. Wrap bracelets and chunky watches will keep an athletic look fresh, while aviator sunglasses add an element of cool. Marc by Marc Jacobs accessories are consistently on point when it comes to sporty fashion—even if you left your claw hairclips in the ’90s, it’s hard not to love this little guy.
