06 Jun How Accessories Elevate a Linen Look in the Summer
How can accessories elevate a look in the Summer?
Accessories Elevate a Look- Even in Summer!
Accessories can elevate a look any time of year. But let’s look at Summer.
Summer is a season where it can get so hot you aren’t going to style that extra layer, be it a denim jacket, kimono, whatever it may be.
I know I enjoy wearing gold necklaces, or layer them if I choose. If I want something different, I will go with a light silk scarf in the summer. The square silk scarf is a fun way to add that “extra” to your outfit and add pattern or additional color to the look. Here is a similar option
Earrings- I fell for these rattan earrings I saw on a few blogger friends and they too, are light and give off that natural vibe that I love with neutral looks or what used to be called “safari styles.”, or “utility styles.”
In honesty, I love the dress both with and without a belt, so it may be your choice in a fit and flare style, to go without as the top portion of the dress should be more fitted and show a waistline. For added definition and contrast here, I chose this brown textured belt, which added more interest to the look as well. Here is one that is a natural color with a wooden buckle.
The croc textured brown sandals are another textural element. So, if your outfit is neutral, opt for some textural elements (accessories) to elevate the look.
I bought this linen dress on Poshmark for a whopping $14! It is from one of my favorite stores Mango. I’ve really enjoyed more thrifted shopping this year, with a spattering of pieces additionally, on-line. Since this was thrifted, here is one I found where the cut is similar. This one has a different style, but is a lovely linen dress with a similar shape.
Linen used to be my “nemesis” and is now really quite a friend! Especially in the heat of the summer. I will iron once and then, accept it as part of the characteristic of the fabric. I teeter toward romantic looks and tailored looks – and have really enjoyed both This tailored dress really reminds me of a Ralph Lauren style.

Just got a pedicure and chose the color “Orange Cat Eye”. It really is cool when the sun shines on it. I wanted something bright and this has a metallic look as well. I usually play it safe, and get neutrals or pinks.
What accessories do you wear in the Summer? Have you tried a neck scarf instead of a necklace? I’d love to hear from you in the comments.
Have a wonderful Day,
