Let us start with the basics, the most important ones being Sunglasses. Who can do without these? Not only do these protect your eyes, but also serve as the ultimate fashion staple. Sunnies, come in various shapes and styles and that's why it is important to choose the ones that suit your face type. They must also accentuate your features while keeping it casual. Pick from a range of aviators, sporty, cat eye or wayfarers, the options are endless. There is no outfit that can't be paired with sunglasses, so go ahead and select something funky this season.
These are new in and so trendy at the moment. No more guessing, it's the T-shirt Dress. Tie a denim jacket around your waist, and throw on a pair of fresh white sneakers and wear a detailed choker around your neck. Alternatively, you can toughen up the look with a pair of dark colored boots. Carry along a tan or brown sling bag to complete the outfit. This low maintenance dress can also be paired with a long line jacket. So, make sure you pack these, as they are sophisticated yet comfy in the same go.
Go ahead and quote us if you like, but you can never have too many Caps. We dote on all types of headgear, cause not only do these hide your bad hair days but also, make for an extremely stylish essential. You could always throw one on irrespective of the occasion. Pair a woven hat with a plain T-shirt and distressed jeans or for the perfect vacation day look. You could also wear it with a casual flowy patterned sundress. So girls, put on your Fedora hats, beanies or Baseball caps, whatever helps you OwnTheLooks.
Our next pick is a Jersey T-shirt. You could wear it over flared jeans, or your favorite denim shorts. Just do not restrict them to the stadium for a sports game, since these can be worn anywhere, especially during the summer time. Jerseys are casual attire so you need to accessorize properly with a bag such as a day clutch or cross body purse. You can wear open sandals or tan wedges to complete the attire. This combination will take your street style game up many notches.

Let us agree that it is completely okay to wear Flip Flops outside of our homes. We can call them by different names like jandals, pluggers, go-aheads, slaps, slides, step-ins, or chanclas but the universal fact is that - they keep our feet cool, and are easy to throw on while you could choose from a million colors. Wear a casual tank top with colored shorts and don some bright colored flip flops, or alternatively, you could wear a plain light tunic top and distressed types of denim with them. Brownie points if you add a chic tote bag or sling bag to your attire.
