Elevate your summer style

We’re so close to summer we can taste it! That’s why this week on Pretty Little Things (where we bring you the most stylish finds online), we’re stocking up on summer-ready accessories. From bags to hats to must-have shoes, get ready to fall for our seriously fashionable picks.

Elevate your summer style

Summer scarf

A scarf in summer, you ask? We say yes! Light, airy and fabulously floral, we were instantly smitten by this vibrant scarf perfect for brightening up any outfit (, $60). While it would work with almost anything, we suggest pairing it with your favorite pair of denim shorts, plain white T-shirt and a pair of wedge sandals for effortless summer style.

Straw bag

When we think of straw bags, we usually picture something only fit for the beach, but that’s not always the case. You’ll want to take this Marc by Marc Jacobs straw canteen everywhere with you this summer (, $158). Made from woven natural sea grass, this bag screams summer. Whether you tote it on vacation, out for patio drinks or running errands, you’ll look polished, chic and ready for anything.

Statement bracelet

While it can be fun to wear multiple bangles, sometimes one piece of arm candy does the trick. We love this cheerful, candy-hued bracelet featuring bright pink, peach and coral rounds set into an ornate brass frame (, $28).

Elevate your summer style


Nothing says summer quite like the perfect pair of sunnies. We’re currently coveting these simple but stylish Kate Spade sunglasses in a rich shade of purple (, $128). The oversized glasses offer optimal protection for your peepers and the classic design means you can wear these chic shades for seasons to come.

Elevate your summer style

Wooden wedge

While shoes are a category all their own, we couldn’t resist adding this adorable pair of chunky wooden wedge heel sandals to our list (, $79). Braided leather in summer-ready ivory covers the (peep) toe and we love the ankle wrap detailing with antique buckle closure. Pair these pretties with anything from cut-offs to maxi skirts. They also come in orange.

Elevate your summer style

Pyramid necklace

Nothing says summer like a refreshing shade of mint green, the lovely hue featured in this House of Harlow necklace. We're digging the pyramid shaped stones that link together for an almost boho-chic effect perfect for summer (, 75). The fun, flirty hue and vintage-inspired design make this a standout summer piece.
