Trendy White Summer Accessories

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…

#1) White Bottega Veneta Sandals

I purchased these gorgeous Bottega Veneta sandals last summer…and they are still going strong! I reach for them all the time…they’re so fresh and modern. I love a gorgeous pair of mules because they’re chic, easy to throw on, and super versatile. They also come in black, yellow, a pretty nude shade, and lavender. They’re pricey, but there are tons of look-a-likes out there. This pair by Sam Edelman is very similar and are just under $100! They also come in 9 color options but the white is so on-trend this season.

#2) Reversible Valentino Belt

Next up…this reversible white Valentino belt. If you are unsure about which white accessory to add to your summer wardrobe, this belt adds such a fresh and stylish pop…and, it reverses to black leather so you’ll get a ton of wear out of it in all seasons. I love this white and tan reversible option too! I wear mine with jeans and shorts and even dresses. The trick to making sure you can wear your belt through the belt loops and as a waist belt is to get a leather hole punch, like this one, so you can add extra holes if needed. It’s only $20 and so worth it. When you invest in high-end pieces, you want to wear them as often as you can and with as many outfit options as possible!

#3) Dean Davidson Signet Ring

I’ve recently added a few new Dean Davidson pieces to my jewelry collection and the quality is outstanding! This moonstone signet ring pictured above makes a statement. Yes, it’s perfect for summer but I’ll wear it for every season. It’s 22K gold plated so you don’t have to worry about getting it wet or being “too careful”…it’s SO stunning in person. Pictures really don’t do it justice! You can get 25% off this ring and all Dean Davidson jewelry with the code BusbeeDD25.

#4) Monica Vinader Pearl Pendant & Charms

Sticking with the jewelry theme AND white, I wanted to share both of these pearl pieces by Monica Vinader. The pearl pendant is a little larger than some of the other charms I wear with this necklace and I love how it packs a punch and makes a statement. The gold hoops I’m wearing in the photo above can be worn with or without the charms, but I find I wear them more often than not with the pearl charms. They just make the earrings pop!

#5) Mercedes Castillo Slide Sandals

You might remember I featured these slide sandals in this post all about what I wore on my recent trip to the Middle East. They are crazy comfortable and on-trend. The straps are adjustable so you can really get a customized fit and the perforated sides look cool while keeping your feet cool too! This would be a much more elevated and chic option with shorts or dresses than say your standard flip flop. And with the added support of the molded footbed, you can definitely walk longer distances more comfortably too. I don’t know about you, but chic and comfy are pretty important to me if I’m going to be running around all day. I also own these Vionic white slides which offer next-level orthidic support and these Vince Camuto slides which are a really stylish white sandal too, and very budget-friendly at under $70!

#6) Bottega Veneta Chain Cassette Bag

You might be tired of hearing about or seeing this bag but it was truly worth the investment for me!  I have worn it countless times, with casual and dressy outfits, and in all four seasons. YES, you can absolutely wear white accessories in the fall and winter months too. The old adage about not wearing white after Labor Day…a very expired notion! So, when you consider cost per wear, hands down it was worth it. But, if you’re looking for a more affordable option, there are a bunch of dupes out there. This bag and this one are look-for-less options.

#7) 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!! I just found this higher quality pair and this one too after being on the hunt for quite some time!

  1. New to your blog and YouTube channel. I love your style. Especially the spring/summer shoe roundup. I love those white high heel mule sandals. Perfect for summer. I always prefer a heel 4 inches or higher and wedge sandal 5 inches or higher.
