4 Accessory Trends for your Summer Vacation
Written by Ben Makla
We’ve waited what seemed like an eternity for the endless rainfall and lackluster weather to clear – yes, even in Sunny Los Angeles. And every time yet another storm replaced our hopes for clear skies, we’d find ourselves further romanticizing our next vacation abroad. But no fulfilling holiday comes without fashion. Ready-to-wear may seem the best vehicle to embody the spirit of luxury leisure, but it is the accessories that really get their moment in the sun. Plus, they’ll add a touch of style to any look that is truly unique to you. Create dimension and personality on your upcoming travels with these four in-demand accessory trends.
1. Embellishing Rosettes
Florals in the Spring are hardly groundbreaking, but floral charms used in place of jewelry are, and we’re excited about it. A classic Camellia tied around the neck by Chanel is an obvious choice, but Loewe’s anthurium charm variations offer a modern take, and come with a strap to conveniently fasten around the wrist or neck. These delicate accoutrements are sure to glamorize any look.

2. Structured Straw Hats
Where there’s sun, there’s an opportunity to realize the chic sun-hat moment of your dreams. After all, sun protection is non-negotiable. Not to mention sun-hats are the perfect topper to any ensemble. Straw is a sensible choice in high temperatures and brands like Ruslan Baginsky & Artesano offer playful designs that exceed a predictable wide-brim silhouette.

3. Lengthening Lavallières
Saint Laurent’s SS23 runway showcased signature Lavallières in combination with deep-V and scoop sartorial necklines, which only added to their popularity. A cool breeze highlights their playful construction most beautifully, proving compatible with the Spring season. Tiffany & Co’s mesh scarf necklace and Saint Laurent’s paisley print skinny scarf are the perfect complement to any plunging top. (P.S. The knot element helps elongate your décolletage).

4. Bags With Shine
The era of metallics is far from over, with continued releases of dazzling bags by Bottega Venetta, Loewe, Oscar de la Renta – the list goes on. And silver embellishments are the perfect light reflectors on any sunny coastline, which make them especially fitting for the occasion.
