The year 2020 was a hell of a year, and it brought with it plenty of surprises, to put it lightly. Now as we walk our way through the first half of 2021, it only makes sense for us to prepare for a new summer post-pandemic and see what the hottest accessories are so that you can finally look forward to prepping yourself for the best summer yet.
BREATHABLE & FUNKY MASKS
We have slowly begun to accept that this is pretty much the new normal. And while the intensity is not that bad during the summer, until we find a solution, it’s best that we still take precautions. The good news is, people are already integrating the face mask in a fashionable way, and there’s no reason why you can’t too this summer! There are a number of options when it comes to breathable and effective masks that look super fashionable as well. You can get a variety of them with summer colors and patterns to go with any of your outfits.
What is summer without sunglasses? Statement sunglasses are all the rage and this summer they’re really trending. Think about a music festival vibe with a ton of class. People are getting extremely creative in the materials used and the shapes, as well as the accessories, added. You can find the best bamboo sunglasses if you look at a reliable review list online, and you can even order them. They look rustic and unique and will go well with any summer outfit that you wear. Hexagonal shaped sunglasses are the latest craze and they just sit on the line of crazy but classy! You can also go for cat-eye shaped, or even the classic shapes but with reflective and colored lenses.
The summer is all about being active. You’re on the move, you’re dancing or shopping or traveling, and so it only makes sense to have a practical bag that looks good as well. This is why the crossover bag is big this summer. They come in all sizes with a variety of handles and you can’t really go wrong with them because they never overtake a look, but they blend in perfectly. You no longer have to worry about lugging around an over the shoulder bag while you get things done.
FLIP FLOPS & SUMMER SANDALS
Bye-bye winter boots and hello beautiful toes! You have been missed! Get ready to have your toenails manicured to perfection because it’s their time to shine. This summer season, flip flops are making a comeback with a vengeance. We’re all about comfort this summer, especially after the last year that we’ve had. Cushiony is all the rage- you can wear pastel colors during the day and switch to a leather cushiony flip flop for the warm evenings to add a touch of style. Strappy sandals are also making a comeback this summer, so get right in with those as well. You can either go for flats or a heel and see how high you want those straps to go! If you’re not crazy about heels but don’t want to go completely flat either, kitten heels are definitely a cool option as well.
Nothing brings an outfit together and elevates it to another level like the right accessories. This summer, we’re going back in time and bringing the bead craze back. Colorful necklaces, bracelets and anklets made from tiny beads are beautiful and will go with any summer colors that you choose to wear.
For the evenings, you can turn to your favorite pearls to add a touch of elegance. Think about irregularly shaped pearls to add a modern feel. Mix and match with your earrings- you don’t have to wear the same earring on each side, just to keep the excitement going. Charms are still going strong and so is layering, so don’t hold back with your bracelets and necklaces and get as creative as you like.
If there’s one thing that we won’t change, regardless of what the state of the world is, is our love for trends and fashion. It helps us to express our style, feel good about ourselves, and experiment with our creativity. This summer, don’t be afraid to connect with your inner creative monster and really mix and match with different mediums, colors, and styles. Get adventurous while prioritizing comfort and you are already on your way to having the most memorable summer of your life with your fashion statements every single day of the summer.
