Every season of the year is special in some way, but there is no season quite as playfully captivating as summer. When the temperatures skyrocket, Arizonans know how to seek out the nearest lake or pool (or beach, if you feel like a road trip!) to relax and partake in the sunny joy that is synonymous with the season.
While we always are looking for ways to be style-conscious, summer is the perfect time to experiment with variety and have some fun with your self-expression.
Whether you’re content to hop in the trendy boat this summer, or are unbearably eager to try out some unconventional fashion dares, I have ways for you to achieve either — or even some colorful combinations of both.
Here’s a look at two hot topics within the world of summer accessories:
1. Adorn your arms
I need to begin this section by explaining that I am an earrings girl at heart. It could be said that I have an unnatural obsession with earrings — especially really big ones that are unique and deserving of attention. I also am a big believer in the statement necklace, although earrings are still my No. 1, go-to accessory. With that in mind, my best advice for the summer months may sound contradictory, but I promise you won’t regret following this one truth: Unleashing the beauty of the bracelet is one of the best fashion decisions you can make in summer accessorizing.
Here are three examples of how to punch up your personal style by embracing this accessory:
Trust the cuff
|Cuffs are not only easy to wear, but also draw the eye because of their width. Find a cuff that offsets your outfit and isn’t matchy-matchy (think silver if you’re wearing white, or coral if you’re wearing turquoise). You will be putting your own trademark spin on a trendy accessory in no time.|
Stacking is a powerful tool
2. Seize your sass
Being a little brave with your accessory choices is a matchless way to show you are up-to-date with current trends while still being ahead of the curve with your own style twists. Be careful here. Women will often try so hard to be different that they end up looking just a bit odd instead. Remember that being unpredictable with your fashion does not have to equate to wearing bizarre things. In fact, the best way to capitalize on this highly rewarding summer fashion advice is by spicing up some traditional trends with your own personal brand of sass
You really can’t go wrong with summer accessorizing if you keep these fresh ideas in mind, and dream up some of your own as well. The moral of my strategy with summer fashion? Have some fun, and add some flair.
