Fun summer 2013 accessories

Looking to accessorize your summer outfit? Well, what kinds of sunglasses, shoes and bags are cool this summer?

Studs - Punk look

Studded bags

Punk is in! Yes, it is! Punk was even declared the theme for the 2013 Met Gala by Vogue Editor Anna Wintour. Here is the thing with studs and the punk look: although this may be too youthful for some people, they can still rock a chic, colourful bag like Michael Kors' summer bag. Nothing screams punk better than studs, especially when studs meet bright cheerful, summery colours, such as hot pink and neons.


Cat-eye sunglasses

Cat eye sunglasses

It is being said that this form of eyewear takes us back to old Hollywood golden days since cat eye sunglasses will always be associated in our minds with icons who wore them, such as Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe, ElizabethTaylor and Sophia Loren. This flared edgy frame is so fashionable this season; mind you it is not for any face. An oval-shaped face (imagine Kim Kardashian's shape) can pull off anything, since it is almost evenly-proportioned. Cat-eye shades will not flatter square or oblong faces, though.

Neon heels

Fall and winter was all about deep, neutral colours, thus summer triggers neon bright colours to pop up everywhere again. The trend even extends to the accessory otherwise known as footwear. Neon heels are in for the freshness and the bright notion they inspire. Neon heels can brighten up almost any dull outfit this summer.


Embellished sunglasses

Adding some decorative touch always been desirable, this season embellished sunglasses are the "it" fashion obsession. Frankly, wearing them makes quite a statement. D&G styled them with a beautiful golden Baroquetouch for a classy statement, DSquare in bright silver crocodile stones and even they exist in floral with tiny flowers decorating the frame. Embellished shades they have taken over the runways and audience stare with desire. Enough said they are fun to death!
