Spring is over, so say goodbye to those beautifully perfect days when the weather always seemed like it was designed just for you. The summer is now here and depending on where you live, that could mean uber hot days with high humidity and a 100% chance of getting a sunburn. But with that heat comes plenty of fun, like getting after-work drinks at rooftop bars covered in twinkle lights and hanging out with friends at barbeques. No matter what you fill your days and nights with, you need the perfect summer accessories for 2017.
The Right Bathing Suit
Bathing suit shopping doesn’t have to be a nightmare. No matter what body type you have, there are plenty of styles out there that will help you feel your best sexy self while strutting along the beach and sunbathing at the pool. While bikinis are great, 2017 is definitely the year of the one-piece. From the Baywatch-style suits that are back in trend to the vintage-inspired suits that can make anyone look like Marilyn Monroe, there are tons of options out there. Now you just have to go out and find the perfect fit! Easier said than done, we know.
Nothing screams summer louder than slip-on shoes that can be worn with everything from skinny jeans to floral frocks to bathing suits. Opt for flashy prints and colors or a classic white that can be paired with anything and everything. Not only do they look super cute, they are incredibly convenient since they can be easily dressed up or down, perfect to move from day to night.
Get a New Watch
The summertime is the perfect time to swap out that old watch on your wrist for a new style that suits you better. MVMT watches come in a wide array of shapes, colors and band options, meaning that if you want, you could get several different watches for your various summer moods. We recommend going with something that bring in some pink, since that is the shade of the summer. If color isn’t your thing, go with a classic leather or gold band that will look good no matter how the trends may change over the years. While you’re there, check out their eyewear and grab a pair of sunglasses for you and your guy.
Brace yourself, because that 16-year-old rebel teenager still inside you is about to rise up. Remember being in high school and only wanting to wear band shirts and shirts with weird phrases and lingo on them? Well, dust your old shirts off, because logo t-shirts are back in a very big way. 2017 is all about making your voice known, so find shirts that represent you values and beliefs, and wear them with pride. Bonus points if you cut the necks off to hit up another trend: off-the-shoulder tops!
Cover-Ups as Daywear
Have you ever fallen in love with a bathing suit cover-up so much that you wished it was fashionably acceptable to wear it out as an outfit? Well, it is now! Sheer dresses and tops are all the rage for summer 2017, especially with bodysuits being so popular. Instead of a boring, basic cover-up though, find unique pieces that offer serious style, like sheer jumpsuits and wrap-style dresses that could easily doubt for sexy lingerie.
Straw hats are back in a big way and no, we don’t mean the kind of hat that you picture Vincent Van Gogh wearing. Straw hats come in a wide array of styles and shapes now, giving anyone an effortlessly boho chic look that makes them look instantly adorable. There’s something about a good straw hat that just begs for a romp through wildflowers, so make sure to get the next item on this list so you c an immortalize your summertime looks.
Instant cameras have seen an uprising, making it so much easier now to find film. Whew. With various brands now offering their own interpretation of the instant camera, you will have plenty to choose from. If you love colors, check out Fuji’s cute pastel cameras to choose from, and if you prefer something more vintage looking, Lomography offers a range that look like they legitimately came from the 1960s (completely with interchangeable lenses).
