The right accessories can transform an ordinary and indifferent outfit into an individual, unique fashion statement. For accessories that work double-time for you, choose from options that are not only attractive and trend-setting but versatile and functional as well.
Hats were at one time seen as an absolute necessity. Times changed, however, clothing styles became more casual, and the hat passed into the land of vintage clothing accessories. Now it has made its comeback, as people once again begin to embrace this classic accessory for its practicality and versatility, useful as both a unique fashion statement and as protective head gear. Stand out from the crowd and proclaim your individuality and style by picking a hat that matches your personality and tastes, and be certain you purchase the correct size.
For a bit of sun protection with plenty of class, try on a wide straw hat, like this one from Goorin for $60. For a timeless look and some old-fashioned class, opt for a classic fedora, like this one from Pork Pie Hatters for $85, or this wide-brim hat from Huckleberry for $64.98.
Sunglasses are a must-have for anyone during the warmer months, and while styles may come and go sunglasses never go out of style. Often worn purely for their aesthetic value, which lends the wearer a classy and “cool” mystique, sunglasses should be worn not merely for their fashion statement but also as a means of protecting your eyes from harsh sunlight. Carefully choose sunglasses that suit your face shape and your personal style, as well as for their protective abilities.
You can’t go wrong with Aviator sunglasses, which are simple and attractive and look good on nearly anyone, like these Ray Bans for $150. For something more eye-catching and chic, try on oversized glasses, like these from Nordstrom for $99, which offer extra sun protection along with a bold fashion statement.
Scarves are a must-have for anyone who wants to look fashionable and put-together without much effort. Opt for a splash of color with something like this trendy option from Sole Society for $24.95, and immediately transform any attire from simple to flashy. Or, for an item that is truly original and efficient, choose this ingenious and one-of-a-kind tube scarf from Cosabella for $79.50, which not only functions as an attractive scarf but can alternately be transformed into head gear or a wide variety of shirts and dresses!
