Top 3 Statement Summer Style Pieces

Summer has finally arrived, leaving us with the desire to show as much skin as possible while sipping on cocktails and lying on a beach. It also means the shops are full with fresh fashion trends for this season that we are dying to get our hands on. We are going to show you some key statement pieces that should be filling your wardrobe this summertime.

This quirky little accessory has been gracing the hips of celebrities and fashion bloggers alike. The versatility of the buckled belt can be seen around the festivals, surrounded by bohemian vibes, on a pair of daisy dukes or just thrown on a daily outfit like Kendall Jenner above. Summer is all about stripping back to the basics but still remaining bold and confident. I can also assure you this belt will see light way after the summer too!

I’m sure you’re thinking did they let moths roam their wardrobes?! How is that even fashionable?! Trust me it is. It’s a step up from everyone’s favourite ripped boyfriend jeans. This distressed style gives a basic outfit a bit of edge, rather than just throwing on a simple tee, the holes make it far more interesting. It’s already been destroyed and worn in, the shredded style would look positively punk if paired with a leather jacket.It also has a little bit of a flirtatious element as flashes of skin are visible.

If summer is good for anything it’s good for reviving classic styles. The nineties favourite, the choker returned in full force last autumn, with the thick velvet style surging in popularity. Obviously, this is being summer, it’s all about the quirky and/or delicate! It’s a trend that is part edgy and part sexy while also managing to elongate the neck. Wear alongside basic v-necks or be a bit adventurous pair with a high neck like Rihanna above for the ultimate contrast.
