Trendy Summer Accessories (That Won't Make Your Bank Account Cry)

Hi again! Welcome back! With the official start of summer coming up next week, I wanted to round up my favorite accessory trends that are going to be everywhere in the next few months. And, on top of that, I wanted to give you guys direct links and tips on where to score them for great prices, without sacrificing quality!

Heads up - I do make a tiny commission when you shop my links! It doesn't cost you any extra, but it does warm my heart and allows me to keep doing what I love when you do use them to shop!

So let's get started:

Beach Inspired Jewelry



This might be my favorite trend right now. I love me some statement earrings like the ones I'm wearing here, and there's no shortage of them this spring and summer! Also, just like the Jonas Brothers, another middle school favorite is back: shell necklaces. Remember rocking these at the boardwalk carnival while waiting in line to get on a ride with questionable safety standards? That was the life. 

Throw them on with your bathing suit and a pair of cutoffs, and you've got a put-together beach look that'll hide the fact that you're suffering from one too many orange crushes from the night before (something your 13 year old self never had to worry about).


Clear Bags

At first, I wasn't totally sold on this trend. I thought they were just for football stadiums and concerts, but now, I'm seeing them everywhere and they're actually so fun and practical! This one from Amazon comes in two other colors and the pouch insert hides any lipsticks and other stuff you might normally have bouncing around your purse. Since the clear part is waterproof, it's perfect for throwing your wet bathing suit in too! 



Headbands


This is such an easy way to step your outfit up and keep your hair in place while cruising with the windows down (*cue Jonas Brothers yet again*). Lele Sadoughi has some amazinggg ones, but I can guarantee, they'll have your bank account shedding some tears. I've been styling this dupe for the past few weeks and really loving it! A multifunctional bandana is also a great option since you can wear it as a headband or tie it into your ponytail or top knot to add a pop of color!



Straw Bags


I'm obsessed with all things rattan right now! Last year, the bamboo clutch was super popular - I carried mine on our cruise to Cuba and got so many compliments. While the clutch is still adorable, I can promise you that it's not very practical. Straw bags like this one, though, are amazing and my Amazon one holds so much!




Straw Hats

Speaking of straw, you guys know I love throwing on a hat to complete an outfit, and just because it's summer, doesn't mean you can't do that! Straw hats like this one are perfect with kimonos, maxi dresses, and bathing suits and they're practical too! You can still look fab while blocking harmful UV rays as you lounge by the pool.



Oversized Sunglasses


I'm not saying you need to look like Kim K, but these Gucci dupes will have you looking like your bank accounts have the same number of digits in them. I've seen these on every face shape and they're universally flattering! I personally have a really round face and not much bone structure in my cheeks (thanks, Dad) and these somehow make my head look smaller! I highly recommend these if you're looking to step up your sunglass game, without spending a ton of cash (delicious Cheesecake Factory martini not included).



Well, that's it from me! Let me know what you guys think in the comments below and please share what other trends you're loving this summer!

XO,
Katie
