Some say the devil is in the details, I say the angel is in the accessories! Ha! But honestly, don’t accessories just make the outfit? This month’s Ageless Style is all about accessories for spring and summer thanks to Lisa who blogs at Coast to Coast . Each month we have a theme and all 10 of us use it as our theme. Such a great way to share how style is indeed ageless – or just a number!
I don’t know about you but when the temperatures heat up it’s time for all fun and festive accessories to come out and play! I’m talking colorful clutches, brightly colored statement earrings, hats, and of course bracelets! All of these fun accessories add so much to an otherwise basic look.
One of the easiest swaps when the seasons change is in the handbag department. This is the time of year to pull out all the straw, rattan, and brightly colored bags! Check these out:
Downsizing my wallet often accompanies a handbag switch. My leather wallet is heavy and large. Honestly it is unnecessary most of the time but I can’t commit fully to the smaller wallet. But when it’s hot outside having a smaller, lighter handbag is just another way to keep cool.
Statement earrings don’t have to cost a fortune. The majority of mine come from Amazon or Target and they work just fine. Brightly colored earrings add a little pizazz while allowing you to remain comfortable. Thank goodness most earrings are lightweight now too!
Hats are a great way to provide a little protection from the sun and come to the rescue of a bad hair day all while delivering spring and summer style! While I don’t necessarily think I look terrific in hats I do have a few and my fedora is one I reach for often.
Since short sleeves are a favorite when it gets hot now’s the time to bring out the bracelets! Nothing is better than a good ole arm party! My favorites are brightly colored enamel bracelets and anything with colorful beads.
Just by changing out your accessories or adding a few pieces you can get so much more mileage from what you already own. Basic dresses, shorts, and tees take on a whole new look just by swapping out accessories. That’s why I say accessories are the angels of our outfits, how about you? What are your favorite accessories in spring and summer?
