Seeing as we’re actually getting some kind of summer this year in the UK we’ve been revelling in the chance to update our summer wardrobe for the past few weeks, we’ve amassed quite the haul of dresses, skirts, shorts and cami tops so now we have to turn our attention to all the accessories that we’ll need to purchase to make these new outfits ‘us’.
Luckily there’s been no shortage of gorgeous accessories uploaded to Looker recently so below we’ve gathered a list of all the ones you’ll need to see summer in style!
It goes without saying that a good pair of sunglasses are a summer essential. Recent trends have brought back more of a 90’s aesthetic with smaller and slimmer designs being more on trend then our usual aviators or raybans (although we’re SO not giving those up), why not use Sallie as your style inspo and invest in a pair of these cat-eye style sunnies to your accessory pile.
We’ve already argued our case of why a straw bag is this summer’s must-have here, so we’ll keep this one short and sweet and just say that all points in our previous post stand so make sure you’re channelling Looker Tasha and invest in one ASAP
Statement earrings are on-trend all year round but there’s just something about summer that makes us want to go bigger and bolder with them (not quite Pat Butcher style but not far off to be honest) so we’re loving this pair seen on Looker Bertrand. Why not pair two bold shades together too to really make a summer statement.
Versatility is one of the key points we look for when choosing items to add to our wardrobe, so scarves are an absolute must. No, we’re not talking about our chunky knit ones that are now thankfully pushed to the back of our closets, but about more lightweight ones designed for sunnier weather. Use silkier materials as a variety of outfit accessories, Looker Samantha shows us perfectly how a scarf can be used as on-trend alternative to a boring old hair tie.
If straw bags really aren’t for you (that’s totally ok, we get it, style is personal after all) then you can still step up your bag game this summer with patterns. Seen on the SS18 catwalks of Prada and Marni amongst others, patterned bags are one of the easiest ways to add a little something-something to your summer outfit. Looker Bernice shows us how a patterned bag can add character to a monochrome outfit.
We all know a sun hat is up there with sun cream and staying in the shade when it comes to protecting our skin in the sun (seriously, get a high SPF and stay in the shade if you can- you’ll thank us when you’re 50 but look 30) but that doesn’t mean you can’t still look chic whilst avoiding sunburn. Looker Funmi proves our point with this Mango straw hat which is the perfect accessory for staying stylish in the shade.
