Accessories are a really easy way to change up your look each season. And they’re fun! Spring and summer accessories can include anything from hats to jewelry to shoes, and bags. Accessories are a VERY simple way to elevate your basics and take any look to the next level. These are the small details that actually pack quite a style punch. In this post, I wanted to share my top 12 favorites that I’ve added to my wardrobe recently. Keep scrolling! You’ll love these…

This GORGEOUS white Bottega Veneta cassette bag has quickly become the only bag I’ve been using! It’s so unique and I feel like not many people have it so it still feels like a really special bag. The chain is hefty and luxe and I love the over-sized woven leather that Bottega Veneta is known for. It’s pretty pricey but there are plenty of look-a-likes out there.
I’ve had this Oscar de la Renta initial necklace for over a year now and it really is the perfect necklace to layer! I love bold gold jewelry and this necklace is the perfect addition! It’s beautiful on its own too. It’s gold-plated so it won’t tarnish. In fact, I think every piece I’m showing you in this post is plated. I stopped by the cheaper stuff because it just goes in the garbage after one season.
I love finding jewelry that’s unique and when I saw this necklace, I knew I had to have it! The geometric look is so cool and it hits in that sweet spot right around the collar bones.
Whether you go for these exact sunglasses or a more affordable option, a chic pair of sunglasses is an instant, easy way to elevate a look. For some modern and affordable sunglasses brands, check out Le Specs, and QUAY.
A headband is a fun accessory to have for spring and summer! Last year, hair accessories got very trendy and it looks like they’re still going strong! This exact color is sold out but it comes in two other options. I really love these headbands by Tasha too.
I shared this cool beaded bucket bag in my resort shop. Bucket bags have been on-trend every summer for a while now. I like that this Sensi Studio bag is small enough to travel with. I brought it with to Arizona and packed some socks inside the bag. It’s tiny so it fits in the suitcase, no problem. The neutral color is so versatile, you can literally wear it with any summer outfit.
You need a nice belt for spring/summer AND fall/winter! So if you haven’t found one you love, now’s the time! This Valentino belt is pretty much the only one I wear now. It’s reversible too. One side is black, the other is honey brown. If you’re looking for something more affordable, I love this belt too!
This brand has become one of my go-to’s for high-quality pieces and this ring is one of my favorites. I got this shortly after getting the bracelets you’ll see below…I just love how these pieces complement each other. Julie Vos jewelry is the perfect glam pop for your outfits. But, they are still very wearable. I wear mine pretty much every day.

Sticking with the jewelry theme, this Julie Vos bracelet is one of my absolute favorites. You may recognize it because I wear it with everything from dressy to more casual looks. And, as I mentioned above, I wear my Julie Vos pieces daily! These bracelets are gorgeous and make the perfect statement. I share more about it in this post. If you love the larger cuff, be sure to grab the smaller version too.
10) Pouch Clutch Bag
This cloud clutch handbag is by Mansur Gavriel. I did a video all about designer items and if they’re worth the money. In that video, I compared this mid-price range pouch bag to the über popular Bottega Veneta bag. This one is so similar in style but at a fraction of the price! It’s still a little pricey so I found this one from Amazon that’s another great option! The pouch bag style is very trendy right now and it’s definitely a fun addition for summer!
11) Glider Necklace
This Kendra Scott necklace was a reader favorite for a while last year! It’s a great basic lariat style necklace that’s super versatile because it’s adjustable. You can even wear it backwards. See more monthly reader favorites here.
12) Panama Hat
Of course, during the summer you need a super chic hat! I’ve talked about how adding a hat to an outfit can make you look instantly more stylish. I already own this hat by Rag & Bone in a few other colors so when I saw this white one, I just knew I had to have it for the summer. Elevate a casual tee and jeans look or wear it with a dress to add some edge. Hats are surprisingly versatile once you feel brave enough to wear them. The exact style is sold out but I linked a similar option. For a more casual option, this hat (for less) is great.
