7 White Accessories That Will Brighten Up Your Summer Look

Trendy White Accessories for Summer

IF you struggle to wear white accessories in the spring and summer, you are definitely NOT alone. It feels so much trickier to style them, and yet, when you get them right… it’s SO fresh and pretty! The key is to start small. One piece at a time and before you know it, you’ll reach for your white accessories ALL THE TIME and then add them to your all white look! I promise. You’ll be rocking them with confidence. In this post, I want to share some of my go-to white accessories this year… keep scrolling!

1) White Bottega Veneta Sandals

These sandals are my newest summer sandal wardrobe addition (on the bottom left). I love a gorgeous pair of mules because they’re chic, easy to throw on, and super versatile. The Bottega Veneta mules also come in black, yellow, and lavender. They’re pricey, but there are tons of look-a-likes out there. This pair is similar and just under $100!

2) White Retro Sunglasses

This is probably the easiest way to lighten (or whiten) up your wardrobe…sunglasses! I love to switch out my sunglasses. Do you remember these sunnies from a few years ago? I love the retro vibe of the frames. They’re from Amazon and only $9!! If you have Amazon Prime, you can get them in two days! I would really love to invest in a higher quality pair, but I literally can’t find any that look like this. If you find some, please DO share in the comments!! You’ll be my hero! 😉

3) White Bottega Veneta Cassette Handbag

If you’re interested in trendy, high-end designer handbags, then this Bottega Veneta chain cassette bag is the new “it” bag that you’ll love in your closet. The color is versatile and fresh, but it comes in eight other colors too! I’ve been carrying it non-stop since it arrived. There are a lot of look-a-likes out there so you can get a similar look for less. This bag is a great alternative. Quilting and braiding are both HUGE trends right now. You can check out all the latest fashion trends here.

4) White Jeffrey Campbell Slingbacks

I featured these beauties in my post all about how to wear a boyfriend blazer here. They’re so chic and cool. I love white shoes in the summer. I’ll admit these definitely do need some breaking in (cut slightly in at the top of my foot) but these will be great with jeans, shorts, skirts, and dresses this summer!

5) White Valentino Belt

White belts aren’t necessarily a wardrobe basic. So if you don’t already have a black and/or brown belt, I suggest starting there. But, if you love a fashion-forward accessory, grab a white belt! I love this reversible white/black Valentino belt but there are plenty of more affordable options out there. This belt by B-Low The Belt is really pretty and this Michael Kors belt is under $50!

6) One Strap Braided Express Sandals

As I mentioned above, braided sandals and heels are having SUCH a moment! (More about the best fashion trends this year here.) These are comfortable, with a very low, manageable heel… and add a modern pop to any summer look. I love them so much, I have them in two colors!

7) Double Strap Braided Express Sandals

These are similar to the last pair of Express sandals because they follow that braided leather trend. But these have double straps and the heel is a little higher. I’d say these are a little dressier and perfect for events! I think if you are only buying one pair of white sandals, I would go with these. They are affordable too!
