When you look this good, you need everyone to see it. The hottest accessory this summer is the waterproof mobile phone. Need a picture at the pool? Why not snap one under water. Caught in a summer storm? No problem. If you can’t spare the dime for the phone, at least stay up to date with an all-weather case.

Beat The Heat With a Broad-Rimmed Hat

ASOS Fedora Hat In Textured Straw - Natural

Take a tip from Audrey Hepburn and find yourself a wide-rim hat this season. Not only will your skin thank you thirty years from now, your social life will thank you today. Wide hats are back, and there is no time like the present to find the style that suits your shape.

Stand Out With Sexy Specs

Le Specs Hall Of Mirrors Round Sunglasses - Black

Remember when moving from glasses to contact lenses was the mark of a summer goddess? No more, say runways everywhere. Bring those prescription glasses out of the top drawer and sport them with pride. Better yet, talk to your optometrist about All About Eyes prescription sunglasses.

Make your day in the sun extra glam with these cheap-chic oversized bags.

Whether you plan on hitting the beach or not this summer, you can’t go wrong with a canvas beach bag. Even when the weather doesn’t call for swimsuits and beach towels, you can load up your tote with books and a picnic blanket (or last season’s handbag). Keep yourself prepared for a spontaneous adventure.

Keep Your Belt Wide and Waist High

The only major trend from last summer that maintains its cool is the waist-high belt. Worn over sundresses, swimsuits or longer tops, a wide belt worn around the midsection can give just the right outline to keep you hip. The choice of buckle, clasp, or tie is up to you so express your own flair with a style that suits.

Keep this list in mind as you shop for your must-have fashion accessories this summer. Leave room for a few accessories in every outfit and plan ahead for which dresses and swimsuits will support which items. Stay sharp, notice the trends, and keep your own style one step ahead.
