There are many reasons to love the summer – the heat, beaches, summer vacation, the occasional three-day weekend – but our favorites have to do with the fun jewelry. Summer fashion is all about beach dresses, T-shirts, shorts and bathing suits, and we like to add a little flair to our look with some jewelry.
Just like a chain necklace can transform an ordinary T-shirt into a non-boring look, some of our other favorite statement-making pieces include bracelets, hoop earrings, and whimsical floral jewelry, which all help upgrade your look.
To help take your summer outfits to the next level, we’re listed some of our favorite accessories. Some may already be a part of your collection and some may be worth buying if you don’t already have them.
To complete a look
Hoop earrings are one of those versatile pieces that can be dressed down or up. Wear it with a simple T-shirt and shorts while roaming the Coney Island boardwalk, or pair it with strappy heels and a cute sundress or maxi dress for an outdoor dinner party. Whether they’re big or small hoops, there aren’t many outfits where these arrings would not work.
Something for the beach
It’s not recommended to take expensive or detailed jewelry to the beach because of the fear that it might get ruined by the sand or saltwater, but bangles are perfect if you want a little bling without going overboard. A stack of bangles is something easy to throw on for the beach and you can even keep it on for afterwards if you’re planning to hit the town. Whether gold or silver, there’s something timeless about bangles. That must be why they’re often gifted at Christenings, naming ceremonies and weddings.
For something related to nature…
If you’re an outdoor girl, then you love the summer for all the hikes you can take, the beautiful landscapes you can appreciate, and visiting picnic areas, the countryside or the mountains. If so, your jewelry should reflect your love of nature and flowers while still being a laidback look. Our favorites include flower earrings that won’t interfere with your mask during the coronavirus pandemic.
If you want diamonds…
Despite the laidback looks and vibes that take over during the summer time, some people still like to rock out a little diamond bling. With that in mind, our favorites are diamond solitaire pendants. They add a little diamond accent to your accessory without being too much and over the top. They’re also perfect for every day wear.
If your fingers seem too bare…
Some people love stacking multiple rings for their everyday summer looks while others prefer just one or two rings. Whichever you like, you don’t want something too big that will get in the way of you enjoyed your glass of rose or ice cream sundae. That’s why we think stackable rings are the best for the summer. They add an accessory without being too flashy.
For your ankles
Your ankles shouldn’t feel left out! Anklet bracelets are a summer time staple adorned by all ages and they come in so many different styles. Celebrities who’ve been seen rocking anklets include Jennifer Lopez, Hailey Bieber and Gigi Hadid.
