Hot Summer accessories

This summer, fashion is all about fun, bright pops of colors, sparkles and bold prints-- here are some of the hottest summer accessories from

Stella and Dot bags and scarves: Known first for their jewelry, this fab company launched an amazing line of scarves and bags this summer that are not only incredibly adorable in summer's hottest prints but fabulously functional. The bags are convertible and can take you from the beach to a weekend getaway and are truly great for anyone who can't leave the house without taking everything in the house with it (we know it's not just us!) We love the "How Does She Do It Bag" in Red Ikat ($89) and the "Getaway" ($138) in the Multistripe. Their Palm Springs Scarf ($59) also comes in the must have prints of ikat and bold fun stripes, and they are super light weight so they won't make you hot... they will just make you look hot (as in babe!) because they are such fun and festive prints. And as if the perfect pop of print wasn't enough to make you want it asap, these scarves are also convertible and are big enough to turn into a beach sarong or dress and then use as a wrap or scarf at night. They instantly "chic" up any outfit.

One way to ensure you look young and chic for eternity while presently looking fab and stylish is from these adorable beach hats by Coolibar. They are made with an UPF 50+ (but breathable) fabric that will keep you sun protected, they have a liner on the inside to soak up the sweat from your hair but most importantly they look ah-mazing and The Packable Wide Brim Hat ($35), the Shapeable Travel Sun Hat ($45) or the Tropicana Sun Hat ($45) are all awesome options because they are foldable which makes them easy to throw in your bag or suitcase without losing their shape.

Sunglasses have become a major player this summer. Typically we see fun prints reserved for bathing suits or summery tops but this summer sunglasses have gotten in on the fun and we are seeing a few major trends at the forefront. Embellished sunglasses with little flowers or bows on the corners or the top made a big time debut at music festivals this year and are great for the season. Ardentreverie offers several fun frames.


We all know the saying "diamonds are a girls best friend" but here's the truth when girls can't afford diamonds, lipstick is your next BFF in line. This summer a pop of color isn't just for your wardrobe or for your accessories but also for your face. Why should your outfit have all the fun?! This is THE summer to play up your lips. So channel your inner Angelina Jolie, pucker up and let your lips shine bright (like a diamond!) NARS has a great selection of the seasons hottest colors which range from corals to oranges, bright pinks to reds and nude but my FAVORITE is their new Satin Lip Pencil ($25) because it's a lipstick and liner and gloss in one that makes it no smudge, no fuss and you can really switch up your look without changing much else. Just pop it on with some liquid black liner and a shimmery shadow and you're good to go. Available in all 13 shades here.


Let us not forget about our feet! We've covered bright pops of color and fun bold prints but this summer is also about tribal prints and metallic. From your wear them everyday sandal to your perfect night on the town wedge, let your feet do the talking this summer. Tribal and metallic shoes are a great way to still be able to wear another trend somewhere else in your ensemble without it being overkill. We love the fun yet affordable options at Target this summer!
