Are you ready for a cool breeze of summer fashion? Look no further -- we've found five simple pieces that will take your summer wardrobe from drab to fab in under $25.
Accessorizing your outifts can be daunting because trends flash in and out constantly, but here we've given you some fantastic pieces at realistic prices that can be easily mixed and matched, and just in time for summer.
SHADY SPECS: This summer, aviator sunglasses are hotter than ever and can be found in a variety of colors. We found a more classic-looking pair at Forever 21 with brown lenses and gold rims for just under $6. Sunglasses are a great way to accessorize without making a lot of effort. Most sunglasses go with any outfit or season because your eyes always need protection from the sun, so adding a new pair to your wardrobe is a must and at $5 per pair it couldn't be any easier.
TIE ONE ON: Typically considered a winter accessory, light-weight scarves are popular this summer in generic colors such as taupe or black but also in cool patterns that punch up any basic outfit. Scarves are perfect for accessorizing with a v-neck tee and a pair of jeans. A light-weight scarf also adds a touch of personality when paired with a simple sundress.
CHIC CHAINS: Statement necklaces are great for any occasion and any outfit. These chic pieces can liven up a pretty sundress or even a colored tee shirt and jeans. The more embellishment on the necklace, the more plain the outfit paired with it can be.
PIZZAZ IN YOUR PIERCINGS: Earrings are often over-looked but can really pull an outfit together. This season, look for earrings that have a more native feel with natural rock or turquoise beading, feathers, or even engraved metal. A bold earring will add pizzaz to any of your summer looks. The ones we've pictured here are under $10.
CHUNKY, FUNKY WRISTS: Wooden, chunky, colorful and even hammered metallic bangles are heading the bracelet trends for Summer. These fun bracelet ideas are simple to follow and add something special to every look. Try sporting a chunky wooden bangle along with a few thin, metallic bangles. Put your bracelets together with your solid-color sundress or plain tee and skinny jeans and throw on a summer scarf... voila! The bracelet pictured here is easy to pair with other basic staple pieces such as stud or metal hoop earrings.
