The Best Summer Accessories & How To Style Them



Make sure you’re warm-weather ready with our exclusive summer accessories guide. Featuring summer staples like designer sunnies and hats to this year’s hottest runway trends, we’ve got everything you need to stay cool this summer.



4 Summer Bags You Need



Whether you’re a beach lover or an avid explorer, you need a designer handbag that provides both practicality and style. Luckily for you, a tote bag can do just that. Having already made waves at London Fashion Week, the supersize tote is predicted to be one of the hottest trends this summer and you can see why. Its clean lines and neutral tones mean that it’s an accessory with true style versatility.

1. Tote Bags

For those relaxing beach days, look no further than Loewe’s classic raffia basket tote, not only does its size make it the perfect beach companion for stashing towels, sun cream, and the latest bestseller, its chic leather strap will help elevate any two-piece.


For those typical touristy days, why not truly embrace tropical paradise vibes by styling Dragon Diffusion’s vibrant tote on the shoulder of a summery floral maxi or midi dress.



2. Bucket Bags

If chunky totes aren’t really your thing, then consider a bucket bag. Known for its minimalist barrel shape, already this season, designers have shown a willingness to redefine the humble bucket.


Stylish yet practical, the bucket bag’s spacious size, iconic drawstrings and the fact that it can be styled with literally anything are some of the many reasons why they’re trending right now.


Style up casual linen pieces like shirts and trousers with Tory Burch’s chic leather bucket bag. Or, bring summer style to your workwear with Valentino’s pink leather bucket bag – the structured design paired with tailored trousers or a blazer makes it work appropriate, while the colour and resin top handle brings edge to your look.





Pairing Givenchy’s suede-toned design or Marni’s mini raffia bucket bag with a lightweight blouse, a free-flowing denim mini skirt, and low-top trainers is also a very easy way to show off your bohemian summer style at festivals, cute picnic dates and evening drinks.



3. Clutch Bags

Looking for something a bit smaller? It’s not just oversized bags that are a must-have this summer. Smaller styles like clutch and belt bags make a big statement.


Since making its first appearance during the roaring 20s,’ the clutch bag has been seen by many designers and celebrities as the perfect plus one for exclusive events and plush dinner dates. Despite its unassuming size, it would be foolish to underestimate the impact a clutch can have on your summer look.


When considering what clutch style to go for, you need to first think about the occasion. For summer soirees and glamourous dinner parties, a box clutch with studs or sequins is a great way to compliment your dress. This style of clutch bag also works just as well when incorporated into more relaxed, daytime looks, from dressed-down jeans to logo tees.


There are a few ways to play with colour when choosing a clutch bag to pair with your look. Many will play it safe and match their bag colour to their outfit, or their shoes. Make sure you’re matching the colour tone, rather than the exact shade, for extra style points.


But, if you’re feeling particularly brave, then why not go rogue and opt for a clutch that contrasts the colour or pattern of your look?



4. Belt & Cross-Body Bags

Whether you prefer to wear them across the shoulder, chest, or waist, over the last few years, belt bags have enjoyed a fashion renaissance. Whilst many of our designers have caught on to this resurgence, we still feel that they’re still being overlooked.


Traditionally, a designer belt bag has always been paired with more casual looks, but this summer give balance to your more formal outfits and pair your belt bag with a shirt dress or playful jumpsuit.


Style tip: Wear your belt bag around the waist with tailored trousers to elongate your legs.



4 On-Trend Sunglasses for Women



No summer wardrobe is complete without the perfect pair of designer sunglasses and with cat-eye, oversized frames, and classic aviators expected to dominate this season, we’ve got you covered.



1. Cat-Eye Sunglasses

Having first gained notoriety in the 1960s’ as a symbol of post-war confidence in America, cat-eye sunglasses have been a celebrity favourite ever since with the likes of Marilyn Monroe, Rihanna, and Jackie Kennedy were spotted in a pair.


Famous for an iconic feline shape, this season, it seems that designers are favouring bigger and bolder interpretations like exaggerated corners and tortoiseshell patterns. Thanks to their vintage roots, cat-eye designs traditionally work well with more formal summer ensembles like chic blouses or 60s’ inspired designer midi skirts.


Rocking a sportier cat-eye design, like a pair of Chanel’s oval-shaped cat-eye sunglasses, is a great way to make a statement on the beach or by the pool.



2. Oversized Frames

Larger than life frames are ready to take this summer by storm, with designers focusing on thicker frames and experimental shades of lenses. Apart from their obvious practical benefits of providing more protection from harmful rays, oversized frames are a great way to add a touch of sophistication to more off-duty looks.


Keep it classy with Gucci’s gold-toned oversized frames, or, if you’re all about making a statement, then look no further than Valentino’s crystal-embellished tortoiseshell style frames.


When considering what outfit to wear with a pair of oversized frames, keeping it simple works well. Opting for a pair of oversized geometric shades is a great way to add an urban feel to summer staples like simple sundresses, floral prints, and relaxed light denim.



3. Aviators

Known for their distinctive metal frames and double bridge, I think we can all agree that aviators are synonymous with summer.


Whether you’re relaxing in a two-piece by the pool, or keeping it chilled in a denim jumpsuit and a pair of designer low-top sneakers, be the definition of cool in a pair of retro-inspired aviators.



4. Rectangular Frames

Slim frames and minimalist designs led to rectangular shades becoming one of the biggest hits of last summer and whilst they remain popular, this season, designers are expected to put a seventies spin on things with wider and chunkier rectangular frames expected to dominate.


Whether the occasion screams bold prints or sleek sophistication, with slight variations in design, frame thickness and colour, donning a pair of rectangular frames is a great way to demonstrate your individuality.

3 Summer Hats for Women



From nostalgic bucket hats to fedoras and logo caps, a good hat can make that all-important holiday shot insta-worthy.



1. Bucket Hats

The love affair with the bucket hat is set to continue this summer, whether you prefer a wider brim or you’re all about chilling under the distinctive floppy shape, the bucket hat is one of the easiest ways to complete any lazy summer or festival look. Sunbathe in style with Stella McCartney’s tie-dyed denim design or complete your festival ensemble with Paco Rabanne’s floral-patterned bucket hat.



2. Sun Hats

Floppy sunhats and fedoras epitomise summer, styled right, the simple sunhat can complete any laid-back look.


For a feminine finish, pair a patterned mini dress with Lack of Color’s sandy-toned fedora or exude effortless holiday style by pairing a chic bodysuit with a pair of wide-leg jeans and Maison Michel Paris’s classical ivory-toned wide-brim sunhat.



3. Logo Caps

Perfect for urbanising both casual and more athletic looks, a designer logo cap is a great way to show off your style in the streets this summer.


Despite what people say, a logo cap works well with more formal looks and can add that all-important edge to more minimalist ensembles. So, make sure you take up the opportunity to show off your favourite logo-embroidered caps from Balenciaga, Acne Studios, and Ganni. For those sportier looks, going for something bolder like Stella McCartney’s bright neon green logo cap can really help add some much-needed personality to your fitness co-ords.
