The summer season is just around the corner. Are you ready to put your best foot forward and be your most fashionable self? Not only do you need to start piecing together a hot summer wardrobe, but you also need to figure out how you are going to accessorize.
Accessories can make or break an outfit. They can help you dress it up or down. They can help you show off your personality or to appear more formal. They are much more than fun little baubles and trinkets.
When you are trying to put together the best accessories to match your new summer wardrobe, consider some of these trends in accessories for 2016:
Scout bags are more than just tote bags. They are doggie bags, they are backpacks, and they are duffel bags. Yes, they are tote bags, as well. They are fashionable bags that are also highly functional, helping you tote around everything from your lunch to your workout gear. Get them in all different colors to match any look.
Time to pull out those old earrings that you were rocking in the 80s. Fringe pieces are back. Everything from necklaces to earrings to even bracelets are showing off fringes of beads, leather and chains. The look is part boho, part rock n’ roll, and all fashion.
Color blocking puts together strong contrasting colors to make a bold statement. Monochromatic matchups like black and white are especially in style, in everything from jewelry to shoes to handbags. Choose bold colors to really stand out with this trend.
Plain metal jewelry is in, but simple is not. Think big statement pieces in silver, gold and other precious metals. Try a silver choker or a wide gold bangle. Or choose simple metal bands to adorn your hands. The look can be both elegant and punk rock, depending on the style you choose.
Your outfit is not complete without some well-chosen accessories. Make sure that you are in style this summer by choosing some of the hottest accessories of 2016. You’ll look fashionable from your head to your toes. Just be careful not to get too carried away by trying out all the trends at once. You want to look chic and fashionable — not like you’re a fashion puppet.
