One of the most exciting aspects of summer fashion is that you have much more choice about what you’re going to wear in comparison to the winter, when it’s merely a case of finding whatever it is that will be best for keeping you warm and dry.
Summer is traditionally the time when we look to incorporate more colour into our look. At least, we do when we’re wearing clothes and not going ‘skin’ at the beach or in our garden.
While summer is also a time when we want to be as relaxed as possible, it goes without saying that we need to do all we can to make ourselves look brilliant. As we might be wearing less while the weather is warmer, the best way to put a focus on our look is with accessories and the perfect finishing touches for rounding off our look.
Here are the top five items you need to buy to complete your look this summer.
King Apparel Hat
Any look is made 1000 times better when it has an edge of exclusivity about it. Wearing King Apparel, you’re guaranteed to have just that, as they don’t do re-runs of stock or re-issue anything when it has sold out.
Therefore, if you own a King Apparel hat, you know you’re one of the few lucky ones.
If you’re looking for an alternative, then New Era are still a great brand to have in your wardrobe, but you could argue they’re reaching a saturation point where it feels like everyone owns one.
Crooks & Castles Sunglasses
There is no question that the sunglasses market remains dominated by brands like Ray Ban and Oakley. We’ve all seen their ranges, and it is only right that they lead the way. However, if you want something a little different then Crooks & Castles is a great brand to accessorise with.
Crooks & Castles sunglasses are not a rip off of any brand, but they do have a hint of Oakley about them with an added urban twist. Combining black and gold perfectly, these are something you must have if you’re passionate about putting ‘bling’ in your look.
Creative Recreation Trainers
We all need footwear, and most of us are fully aware of how our shoes can either lift a look to new heights or drag it into the gutter. Many brands work well, but if you want to avoid the common labels and be unique, creative recreation trainers at J-Bees are perfect, and look great whether you’re wearing shorts, jeans, and even formal trousers to work.
Admittedly, we wouldn’t normally encourage wearing these, but if you’re wearing baggy jeans and a hooded jumper this summer, there are few things better for completing your look, especially if you’ve been clever and matched up the colours wherever possible.
Yes, jewellery is polarising, but if you get it right it can make you look the business whether you’re using it to soften your look or give your look attitude and aggression.
With that in mind, what you choose is up to you; we’d suggest you keep it simple and go for a ring or a woven leather bracelet, but if you want to go ‘full bling,’ that’s down to you.
Look to add all of these items to your look this summer, and they’ll be the perfect exclamation point to whatever you choose to wear.
