Capsule summer wardrobe – do you remember my post? I hope you tried it already and I hope you stick to that plan. I do and I absolutely love it. It’s, hands down, so much easier now to find an outfit in the morning. Plus, I would have never thought that I could have so many different outfit possibilities just by sticking to a limited amount of pieces and color palette. Even though neutrals are totally my thing, it doesn’t have to be boring. I let my accessories do the hard work.
Invest in jewelry
I always admire pretty jewelry on others. It’s the easiest way to elevate any outfit immediately. But I have to admit that I usually don’t wear a lot jewelry. I simply forget to put it on sometimes. So my plan is to remind myself more often to add some jewelry to my looks. Let’s see if it works out!
I like my jewelry to be minimalistic and simple – nothing too big or chunky. Golden jewelry is what I prefer but silver anklets on tanned skin look just amazing. My go-to pieces are definitely rings. I love rings and I love to layer them or to switch fingers throughout the day. Likewise I like to wear meaningful necklaces. I’m a bit picky though, because I want them to be connected with a story. That’s the personal touch I like to give to my outfits and a piece of jewelry with a personal meaning meets this instantly.
Find suiting sunglasses
The one accessory with the ability to dress up or down any outfit immediately are sunglasses. Over the last few years I’ve amassed a small collection of a few pretty sunglasses I can choose from. Right now my MIU MIU shades are my favorite and there is a little fun fact: I saw these sunglasses summer 2021 on Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, and fell instantly in love with them. A few weeks later I happen to find them in a store. I was actually looking for something else when I saw the sunglasses. It was the last pair of these specific shades plus they were on sale so I couldn’t resist and I didn’t regret the purchase just a bit. I love them.
Hats and caps
The least worn accessory in my wardrobe are hats and caps. But I learned to love them and now I can’t be without them when I’m in the garden or spending my day in the sun. It’s a great sun and heat protection plus it’s a stylish addition to any summer look.
A personal fragrance
The most precious but invisible accessory I have are fragrances. I always finish my look with my favorite fragrance. I’ve amassed a nice collection of fragrances for every season. For summer I like fresh, flowery and soft scents. Fragrances affect my mood a lot. They can put me in a good mood, make me feel confident or even sexy. My go-to scent is Chanel Chance Eau Vive.
