Though many people can’t be dripping in gold like Charlize Theron in the Christian Dior J’adore commercial, don’t sweat it—you can find faux 24 karats practically anywhere! This summer gold accessories are in like red, white and blue on the 4th of July.
Gold jewelry has always been a classic piece to have in your wardrobe, but recently I have been seeing most Fashionista’s switching from chilly silvers to warm summery gold. You can make gold look as dressy or as casual as you’d like. You can easily pair gold jewelry with a crop top and a pair of high-waisted shorts, like this pair from American Eagle, and a Calvin Klein straw hat—perfect for a day at the beach. Hats are a great accessory to have this summer for the beach, a shopping trip or a summer cookout. They are great for practically any occasion.
You can never go wrong with a cross-body bag, it is a must-have accessory! It is the most convenient purse you will ever put on your shoulder. You can easily reach inside of it and pull anything out, instead of having to take it off your shoulder or hassle at the check out with putting your wallet back in and grabbing your bag. It is a go-to bag when you are in for a day of “shopping until you drop.”
On the other hand if you are in for a long shopping day you may not want to put on your tallest most in style wedges, although wedges in all colors are super popular this summer. These cream wedges are a perfect example of a wedge for summer. You can pair this neutral color with a patterned short from the Milly Collection by Ralph Lauren or your favorite Denim & Supply jeans and a white V-neck.
Giorgio Armani once said, “Accessories are important and becoming more and more important every day. They can completely change the look of an outfit, and women like the idea of having a wardrobe that’s versatile. For instance, a strong piece of jewelry can make a simple outfit look elegant.” With that said, accessories are like the icing on a Sprinkles cupcake, it’s a must-have. You can’t have an outfit without a little bit of accessorizing. This summer don’t forget gold is the new black.
