As I mentioned in my Three Surefire Holiday Gifts for Her post a leopard print scarf is an accessory that will liven up any woman’s closet. I purchased mine in March 2012 and already it’s become a staple that dresses up otherwise simple outfits.
Hi y’all! I’m Jen from Librarian for Life Style, where you can follow my personal style journey through a mixture of work and casual outfits. I’m so excited to be guest posting here at Loop Looks, as I’m a regular reader and fan of Erin’s cool, classic style. So while Erin is off enjoying her vacation, I’m here today to share some ideas on fun summer accessories.
Here is my Polyvore inspiration board with accessories to beat the heat, along with some personal examples. Happy summer!
So how do you accessorize to beat the heat? With high temps and heavy humidity, you don’t want to add heavy layers or accessories that stick to your skin. My go-to accessories for summer include earrings, straw hats, and scarves:
- Bracelets and necklaces can feel heavy (and sticky) in the heat, but earrings are always good options in summertime. Focus on lightweight, colorful earrings for maximum impact — and when your hair’s back in a braid or updo, your earrings will stand out even more!
- Hats keep you cooler with built-in shade, and straw adds texture (and ventilation).
- And scarves aren’t just for winter — lightweight, cotton options are great for summer, providing coverage when you walk from the hot outdoors into air-conditioned spaces. Try twisting one around your straw hat to add color when you don’t need to wrap up, or using it to keep your hair off your face and neck.
Thanks again, Erin, for inviting me over for the day!
