5 ways to accessorize outside your comfort zone this summer

Sometimes we have a tendency to stray away from dressing outside of our comfort zone. While this is completely normal, dressing the same every day can get, well, a little dull. Fashion stylist, Brad Goreski said it best, "…great things, in life and in fashion, can happen when you commit to choosing surprise.” How do we do that? By mixing up our everyday accessories! Here are our five favorite ways for you to try:

1. Swap out your specs!
Replace your bland sunglasses for killer new shades! Not only will you look super cute, but your eyes will be protected from harsh rays. Need some suggestions on new styles? Spice it up with a cat eye-shaped lens, or go with the always-trendy reflective circle sunnies! 

2. Grab a scarf! 
Scarves come in an endless array of colors and styles, which make them a super cool way to express yourself. A lightweight one is perf for summer!

3. Ditch the backpack for a crossbody! 
Crossbodies are the perfect combination of trendy purses with the flexibility and freedom of a backpack. Talk about a win-win!

4. Socks on socks
Replace your boring white athletic socks with ones that make a statement. This summer, we’re all about these fishnet socks underneath sneakers, or even slides!

5. Hats 4 dayzzz
Throwing a straw floppy hat will give any blah outfit instant tropical vibes! Throw on a baseball cap (extra points if it has a cute saying on it!) and your outfits a go!
