Must have summer accessories

So you already have the wardrobe ready for the summer season with your short dresses and flowy skirts. All we need to complete the look are the hottest accessories. Although the stylists here at Faviana hate to admit it, the right accessory can take the already perfect dress to the next level. We use to say the dress says it all, but with trends like prints on prints, mixing and matching, and over the top embellishments you are sure to look extra fab in whatever frock you choose.

Today it is all about the little things. This head band is the perfect accessory on a hot day for controlling the frizz in the heat or when you just don’t feel like styling your do after a day at the beach. We love this Top Shop headband that combines hot trends by showcasing edgy spikes with ultra-feminine floral accents. The neutral colors make it a great touch for a colorful floral print dress or even a simple white dress.

If it is shiny we love it! Last year it was neon, this year it is metallic’s that are stealing the show. Whether you going for glam or vintage, just add on the shine to amp up any simple look.

Although we love the extravagant simplicity the last two accessories offer, bring on the color! Monochromatic looks were seen all over the runways to ensure a spectacular, colorful summer. Elie Saab showed off this trend with short suits, while Stella McCartney updated the trend by color-blocking like colors. Whichever way you choose to sway your next look we’d approve. Have your own take on this trend by selecting a solid colored long dress with an ombre necklace like this one from Anthropologie.

Who says accessories are limited to fashion pieces? While some fashionista’s may never leave the house without their favorite pair of earrings, most are also sure to always have their cell phone as well. You don’t have to be a techy to love this Kate Spade IPhone case. It’s abundance of color is sure to not only match any cocktail dress your wearing, but will make you look good while getting your Twitter updates every hour (ok every 15 minutes).

This last accessory is only for the fashion daring or the dying to be hipster. Prescription or not, celebrities and bloggers are wearing standout eyewear everywhere. This look isn’t just for the shy, smart type anymore, and it sure isn’t limited to casual wear. Wear these glasses with a white tee to dress it up, or just be your fabulously chic self and rock them with a beaded short dress.
