The time is near when you will have to wave your goodbyes to the summer season. You know, the time of the year when you get to wear lightweight dresses and not worry about the chill demanding you to coverup those oh-so-stylish off-the-shoulder sleeves. So, if you want to enjoy summer fashion, better do it before it is too late.

This summer, we’ve come to know lots of chic trends, not only in the outfit department but also in accessories section. And while we’d love to spend next summer embracing these same trends, you know it doesn’t work like that. Trends are fleeting. One moment a choker necklace is in vogue, the next it is exiting the stage with its head down. So, if you love a trend try it when it comes, make the most of it because it is soon to depart anyway.

That said, there are some summer accessories that we have fallen for. These don’t only have Instagram-approval, but they are also too lovely to ignore. If you are unaware of this year’s hottest accessory trends, don’t worry, you are at the right spot. We have compiled a list for you here.

Micro sunglasses

In the beginning of the year, when summer was not even here yet, Yeezy designer Kanye West insisted that this was the year of small sunglasses. He was right. Soon, his wife and her sisters aka the Kardashians were seen rocking tiny sunshades. Among the various types of small shades, the ones that have us drenched in love are halfmoon ones.

You know, the ones that Gigi Hadid and Bella Hadid have been rocking. Need a slightly different version? Check out the tiny cat-eye sunshades that Kylie Jenner wore to the Met Gala this year. Before its too late, rock a pair of micro sunglasses.

PVC handbag

First came plastic in the form of footwear. Kim Kardashian rocked a pair, and everyone followed. Then fashion weeks showed how PVC had also dominated the handbag industry and voila! Several high-end labels brought forward their versions of chic and on-trend PVC bags. From totes to crossbody bags, every style was covered.

Channel introduced some of the best clear bags. RiRi also gave street style inspiration whilst carrying a PVC Delvaux Brilliant Bag. And of course, when the fashion queen does something, fans must follow! Fetch a transparent bag for yourself, and sport it for as long as the trend lasts.

Sheer socks

Another trend bandwagon that you must jump on is that of sheer socks. Want to know why? Because Selena Gomez has indicated to do so. Selena Gomez, the most followed person on Instagram, a songstress to familiarize yourself with, has introduced several trends. We’re totally smitten by the 26-year-old Puma ambassador’s designing skills.

When in April she introduced her designed Puma sneakers, she didn’t only give the world Phenom Luxe training shoes but a pair of sheer windowpane socks as well. You can also get sheer socks in other designs with embroidery or other details too.

Straw hats

Hats have taken a steezy turn this season. You don’t only need sunshades for keeping the sun’s glaring rays at bay, protect your face with a hat. And not just any hat, but a fashion-forward straw hat. These hats are acceptable in several shapes and sizes however, we’d recommend you to go for a large one like Bella Hadid did.

Oh, and if you’re not okay with sporting a straw hat unless it is a particularly warm day or when you are headed to a beach, fashion has another option for you too. PVC hats are also totally in these days. Rock these styles before their time in the fashion world runs out.


Returning back to the classics once more, pearls are in trend this summer. From pearl earrings and studs to pearl bracelets and necklaces, pearls can be worn in a variety of styles. Since pearls are timeless in the fashion game, even if they soon hop off the trend train, it’s not like your investment would be doomed to go to waste.

Want some inspiration on how to rock pearls? The statement accessory has been rocked by Princess Diana, Audrey Hepburn, Angelina Jolie, and Rihanna as well. Our favorites’ list includes a heavily pearl embellished pair of earrings.

Chain belts

The chain belt trend is one of the hottest on Instagram this year. If you want to post a killer picture on the social app, be sure to include a gold chain belt to your outfit. Not only would you look #instacool but you’re sure to be crowned a fashionista too. The trend is one that is not unheard of. In December last year, it was big.

Now this summer it is back in all its glory. Pair your chain belt with a black dress that reaches your thighs or wear it around your waist with your swimsuit. Either way, you’re going to be nailing this trend. Tory Burch and D&G have the snazziest chain belts on their shelves.

So, that compiles the list of the hottest accessories this season. Be sure to rock these trendy accessories as soon as you can. You wouldn’t want to be too late to the party.
