Before we shift to fall and its more serious sartorial aesthetic, there’s still some time left to get lots of use out of decidedly more fun summer accessories. Yes, that means you have a good two months left to wear your fun sunglasses, hats, anklets, and bags to your heart’s delight, to maximize the effectiveness of your denim shorts, swimsuits, and slip dresses.
So what exactly makes for a “cute” summer accessory? In my book, it’s anything colorful, quirky, and attention-grabbing, that will easily liven up even the most basic of summer outfits. Easy enough, right? The internet is still filled with lots of fun, seasonally-appropriate accessories to choose from and I found them for you, because it’s one of my favorite things to do. Keep scrolling to shop them if you need a little pick-me-up (for your outfits or mood).

This seems relevant.

And if you’re tired of scrunchies, it’s time to become reacquainted with the claw clip.
