Summer is here! And that means, as little clothes as possible. I don’t know about you, but heat makes me dumb. Like 2+2=? dumb.
Over the years, I have learned that accessorizing a basic outfit really is the key to summertime success. I mean really… you gonna add MORE layers to your outfit? Its hawwwt yo.
To start, let’s map out the basics:
Now let’s get more specific:
Shoes – a great way to add interest starting from the bottom up. Fringe is really popular this season, why no incorporate it into your sandal? By wearing flip flips, you miss out on a perfectly good opportunity to make a statement.
Bag – don’t bother with big heavy bags in the summer. From an observer’s perspective, it even looks like a pain in the ass. And not to mention the sweat that accumulates under those thick straps. Try on oversize clutch instead.
Jewelry – statement pieces are great for night, but during the day you might want to stick with light layered pieces (bangles, pendents, etc) instead. Layering jewelry can have a dynamic effect on its own. And a fun kitsch item will add some character.
Random – at this point, if you have covered all of the above, you don’t need to bring anymore to the potluck. A hat, sunglasses, scarf, are all great random accessories. But don’t overdue it. A warning for beginner’s: No more than one random thing per outfit. I’m serious.
