Many people argue that autumn/winter are the best seasons for fashion, but I would have to strongly disagree. The argument is mostly that you can layer more in winter, giving more opportunities to show off your style. Yet there are so many chances to layer in summer – I actually find layering dainty jewels and rustic accessories much more exciting.
My style is very bohemian and beachy, so summer is when I really thrive. I have a few essential accessories that are staples for any boho outfit, and you’ll definitely catch me wearing at least one of these (if not all) everyday.
No beachy outfit is complete without a hat – they’re both stylish and offer extra protection from the sun. I love any kind of straw hat because I’m really into natural textures and they pair with absolutely anything.
Felt hats are another great option too; they look great on everyone and transition perfectly from summer to autumn.
Taking inspiration from Bali, these round rattan bags are one of the biggest trends this summer. I’m absolutely in love with the style of these – especially the small, crossbody ones – they’re both casual and beach-chic whilst adding a statement piece to any outfit.
If crossbody bags aren’t your thing, then straw tote bags are a great alternative to still achieve that boho look.
Delicate jewellery is my all-time favourite – especially if it’s gold. There’s nothing prettier than tiny studs and hoops twinkling away on your ears, and it’s such an easy way to give off laid-back, beachy (how many times can I say beachy in this post?) vibes.
Delicate chokers are another favourite of mine, they work with everything and add a really pretty touch. I especially love this one because of the moons and star (I love anything astrological) – and the engraved faces add a unique little twist.
Although I love gold jewellery, I also enjoy mixing metals to create a purposefully mismatched yet still chic vibe. Turquoise is one of my favourite stones because of it’s likeness to the ocean, so I have a lot of jewellery that makes use of it. Stacking dainty rings is a great way to add a touch of bohemian to your jewellery, and matching your ring to your bracelet creates a really seamless look.
So those are my essential bohemian accessories, I hope you enjoyed this post and let me know in the comments what some of your essential accessories are! See you next time,
