Warm weather is finally upon us! I love embracing all the seasons. This summer, I find myself all "hot" for combining emerging trends with my everyday wardrobe. The way I see it is that it's sort of like keeping things spontaneous in your closet by adding small surprises to your favorite looks you love wearing all year around. By doing so, I'm able to maintain my enthusiasm for not only the new trends but for the pieces I've had for years. Take a look at the 5 trendy accessories I’ll be sporting all season long!
1). Keep It Together With Turban Headbands:
For the last few weeks, I've spotted a fabulous turban trend on a number of my favorite bloggers. There's no doubt in my mind that bold head pieces and hair accessories are making a successful comeback this season. Sometimes working with knit fabrics and silk scarves can be tricky and time consuming. That's why I'm thrilled to know about these headband versions of the turban trend. Such a great way to look chic while easily keeping your hair away from your pretty face. These pictured below are available on ASOS, some for less than $10. Obviously, I stocked up!
2). Pearls, Pearls & More Pearls:
I never considered myself much of a pearl person. If that's even a thing. I always thought they were beautiful and in many ways reminded me of elegant fashion icons such as Audrey Hepburn. However, I never believed I looked good in them. At least, that held true for me when I was in college and trends were different then. The same applies for gold jewelry. As a teenager, I preferred silver-tone jewelry. But now, being in my late 20s, I tend to lean more towards gold-toned pieces as I feel they give off more warmth to my appearance. With pearl jewelry making a huge presence in both jewelry and accessories, I was surprised to discover how versatile they are. Similar in the way diamonds elevate your appearance, pearls can be paired with almost anything and they immediately enhance your look. I love these from The Outlier, an Australian brand that I am obsessed with.
3). Turn Heads With Grip Handbags:
I believe you can learn a lot about an individual simply by looking at the kind of bag he/ she carries around. I've heard people say that about shoes, but I think it's all about the bags people invest in. To me, handbags reveal significant insight on personal tastes and fashion competency. What better way to turn heads this season and the next than with a Grip Handbag? These bags are definitely a conversation starter and one of the many beautiful pieces I am proud to own. Shop all colors and styles I have available for you only at Grip Handbags.
4). Wear Your Mother's Sunglasses & Make It Fashion:
I realize I am lucky my mom has fashionable taste. Usually when we spend some time cleaning up, she comes across items from her past that she feels inclined to give to me. Maybe it's because she no longer has the need for them, but I think it's primarily because she knows I would enjoy them more. After all, prior to cleaning up they were just sitting in her closet. Recently, one of the items she passed down to me are her Cartier sunglasses! I was so STOKED. I got them cleaned and even put my prescription in them (totally worth the cost). These are probably one of my top favorite sunglasses that I own. And this pair just so happens to resemble a style frequented on trend-setters this season. Next time you spend time with your mom or mother-figure, ask her what some of her favorite pieces were back in the day!
5). Last But Not The Least, If It Clips... It Sticks
What a blast from the past! I remember when I wore hair clips to middle school everyday and then suddenly it wasn't cool anymore. Now, they're back this season and more chic than ever before. These are all from The Outlier because I can't get enough of their unique statement pieces. All you need is one or two clips in your hair while keeping everything else on the simpler side. What better way to dress up your look?
