Summer is the perfect time to experiment with your style and try out some new accessories. We all know the right accessories can make or break an outfit, and this summer there are plenty of stylish newcomers breaking the rules. Here’s a look into 6 essential accessories for the new year...

1. Tiny Sunglasses

The trend of teeny tiny barely-there sunglasses may be a little bizarre, but it’s not going anywhere. In fact, the likes of Chanel, Prada and Louis Vuitton have all brought out their own collections of weird but wonderful tiny sunglasses; trickling down the fashion chain to a high-street near you. Wear these with equally edgy jewellery accessories to really make a statement on the beach.

2. Crossbody and Belt Bags

Crossbody and belt bags have become a stylish yet actually highly practical fashion staple – and an absolute must-have accessory this summer. You can wear a crossbody bag with any boho chic, preppy or punk look to take the outfit to the next level. There are no rules when it comes to the belt bag. Shop around for the perfect colours and shapes, you can even find one to loop in the hoops of your jeans! Or why not wear it wrapped around your summer dress or skirt? The possibilities are endless.

3. Transparent Shoes

The highly unlikely trend of transparent shoes has truly taken off and become a go-to choice for your summer shoe collection. Perhaps sweaty transparent boots may not be the best option for summer, but they certainly work well during the autumn as the weather cools down. In the summer wear transparent pumps or sandals. Wear these with a transparent bag for a high-fashion look, if you dare.

4. Resin Jewellery

Chunky, colourful jewellery has taken a new form with resin jewellery. Gone are the days where rose gold jewellery reigned supreme. This spring/summer jewellery has taken a new direction. This sleek, unique jewellery is perfect for dressing up any simple outfit. This inexpensive resin jewellery trend looks best as earrings or a necklace for a truly stand out effect.

5. Straw Hats

Though bucket hats have proven to be popular, there’s nothing quite like a classic straw hat for lazing on the beach in the new year. Keep cool this season with an essential straw hat, way larger than anyone deems acceptable. Many designers have carried the traditional straw hat into the 21st century with colour changes and new designs. Try out the best styles that work with your face shape so you can wear yours all summer long.
