Its approached that time of the year when we Brits start to believe we might actually get some nice weather in the coming months. Of course, the reality is this ‘summer’ we talk of will be a few select days of warmth surrounded by disappointing mild cloudy spells and showers.
But we can dream! And in those dreams we should be thinking about the accessories we are going to done alongside our short sleeves and shorts. Summer is a great time to accessorise as we have so much more skin on show and an excuse to wear sunglasses and hats without looking like a hipster. Here are five of my top accessories to enhance your summer look on those days we finally get some sunshine!
Leather Wrap Bracelet
A great way to add something different to your casual summer outfits. A lot of accessories can be a bit too formal for shorts and t shirt weather but a goo quality leather wrap bracelet can be both a cool and fitting addition to your outfit.
Ray Ban Sunglasses
Its not often I will go for an expensive clothing item as I have previously explained, but sunglasses are one exception. A good quality pair of sunglasses that is adaptable for any outfit is one of my summer must haves. And with black framed Ray-Bans you simply cannot go wrong. Equally at home with shorts and a summer shirt for a more casual look or formal wear for the office they are one of the few timeless classics in fashion.
The trilby has had a resurgence on recent years and is no longer the reserve of the festival goer. It presents a relaxed casual head wear option for long summer days and nights in the beer garden.
Short sleeves expose your arms and wrists and so a nice watch will get noticed. Choose something with a fabric or resin strap with breathable holes to avoid getting a sweaty wrist!
Before you get carried away remember you are still in Britain and rain is only around the corner. A compact umbrella which slots easily into your bag will save you from getting wet when the clouds inevitably arrive unannounced.
