If you’re looking to add accessories to your closet but are not sure where to start, you’re in the right place. I’m sharing my 5 best accessories for both Spring and Summer.
You can find all these pieces on Amazon or your local boutique. Remember, less is more. Super simple outfits can turn into something amazing with the right accessory.
These are my best accessories for taking a casual look up a notch. If you’re also a fellow content creator like myself, these add a little extra detail to your photos with minimal effort.
Let’s start with the basics. A few years back, statement necklaces were all the thing. Now, statement earrings have taken that title. Up until recently, I was wearing the same 5 pairs of earrings since college. I knew it was time to refresh my collection.
I found so many cute options, including the ones you see in this photo, for under $10 on Amazon. Be sure to add some staples that you can match with anything. Then add some that are more unique and may be a better fit for one or two special outfits.
I’ll admit there was a time when I thought hats were going out of style. Phew, false alarm. I only had a couple in my collection and they sat on a side table in my room collecting dust. I’m so happy that hats are a still a thing!
Not sure how to store all of your hats? I have created several versions of a hat wall in my last two apartments now. I used to have them on hooks which were set in a miscellaneous pattern on the wall. Now I have a more organized look. I use mini clothespins to hold each hat to a long string. This keeps them in a neater order on the wall.
I saw girls wearing these all over Instagram and immediately knew I needed some. We all have those lazy days where hair in a ponytail is a must but now we have the option to jazz up that basic pony? Sign me up.
What I love most about these hair wraps is how versatile they are. You can wrap it directly around your ponytail, wear your hair in a bun and use the scarf to hold it in place or wrap the scarf around your whole head like a headband. I got a 2-pack of XL scarves from Amazon here.
BOLD LIP COLOR
Who ever said your accessories have to be clothes? Definitely not me! Bold, fun lipstick colors are not only fun to play around with but are great for making a statement
Plus now that fall is coming, we’ll start to see darker, more dramatic colors on trend. My favorite!
Low key, low heels have been my jam lately. Adios, high heels! It makes it look like I tried while feeling like I didn’t. I still reap the benefits that heels provide – feeling taller (I’m 5′ 4″), making my legs look longer, looking dressed up. Only now I don’t have to bear the uncomfortable reality that is stilettos or 4-inch pumps all day.
I found these blue ones at Marshall’s earlier this summer for $12. So when I’m roaming around Chicago all weekend long, looking for good photo locations, I can rest easy knowing I won’t kill my feet all day.
