5 staple accessories to add to your wardrobe this summer

It's officially summer, and we're *so* here for relaxed vibes, days by the pool and, ofc, a much-needed wardrobe refresh. From cute sunnies to colorful scrunchies, we've gathered the ultimate list of summer accessories.

Phone straps


The "it" item of the season is the Y2K phone strap trend. Elevate your phone case with this vibrant beaded accent. You can even DIY it with your friends—simply head to your local craft store, pick up some charms and string and personalize your strap with endless colorful combos.

Acrylic rings


Chunky, acrylic rings are the perfect pops of color—not to mention that they're super nostalgic. Geometric-shaped bands blinged out with decorative jewels pair amazingly with a fresh summer mani.

Claw clips


Need a new hair accessory? Claw clips are an effortless, versatile option. Ranging in colors from pearly white to matte black, these clips can be used for half-up styles or messy buns. Opt for the classic claw design or go bold with a flower-shaped clip (hi, cottagecore vibes). 

Tote bags


Spacious enough to fit all of your belongings while still looking stylish, tote bags are more than just a fashion statement—they're super practical, too. Choose between a fun, patterned bag or a sleek plain design that'll match with everything. For a minimal look, try a mesh or triangle tote.

Huggie earrings


Everyone knows that earrings are a girl's best friend. Quite literally designed to "hug" the ear, huggie earrings are stunning to style with any cute fit, whether you're a silver or gold jewelry gal. These earrings can be dressed up or down. Plus, they're the ideal petite size.
