Summer is just around the corner, and I really can’t wait to go on vacation in August! Until then, I have to be content with the most beautiful accessories for summer that make me think of sunny days at the beach.

The most beautiful Accessories for Summer

Of course I’m going to tell you what my favourite accessories for summer are! This is why I’m going to introduce them to you in this blog post. Spoiler alert: it is going to be fancy and hot!

Tips from vintage fashion blogger RetroCat: Fancy and stylish: The most beautiful Accessories for Summer

Pretty Ethnic Earrings

I love huge ethnic earrings! I not only wear them in combination with boho outfits, but also team them with my classy retro looks. This breach of style adds that certain something to my outfits and makes them a bit more interesting. My favourite ones are a sparkling pair by Stella & Dot as well as a pair made of wood, which I bought in Prague a while ago.

Fancy Cat-Eye Sunglasses

Sunglasses are my favourite accessories in summer! I especially love cat-eye sunnies in all colours and shapes. One of my favourite pieces are the sunglasses by Miu Miu (shop them here). Another fave are the black cat-eye shades by Dolce & Gabbana (get them here). Both of them aren’t bargains, however, I really enjoy wearing them and they are my faithful companions in summer. When I go to the beach, though, I prefer more favourable ones. Retro Peepers, for example, offers some lovely budget-friendly sunglasses.

Summery Straw and Basket Bags

I already told you more about my favourite handbags for spring and summer in this blogpost. However, as straw and basket bags are a must-have for summer, I didn’t want to skip them in this article. 😉 I bought most of my bags at vintage and second hand stores. There are also pretty ones available at Etsy. And since basket bags are absolutely en vogue right now, you will also find gorgeous ones at Mango and other big shops.

Lovely Flats, Sandals and Wedges

Summer also means it’s time for open shoes! I love my lovely flats, ballet flats, and wedges! My pink flats are by Petite Jolie, you will find very similar ones here. Another brand I really like when it comes to shoes is Miss L-Fire. TopVintage, for example, offers some lovely ones from this brand.

Stylish Straw Hats

Hats not only protect us from the sun, they also look super stylish! I especially love my vintage staw hats! Straw hats are already available for only a few euros and always look great! By the way: In this blogpost, I show you my ten favourite hats. 😉

Stylish Parasols

Hats are great, however, they don’t spend enough shadow. This is why I always take my parasol with me on very hot and sunny days. You can shop it here. By the way: TopVintage offers parasols as well, just have a look here.

Delicate (Nylon) Gloves

Yes, one definitely can wear gloves in summer! Especially delicate ones made of nylon like these ones by Secrets in Lace. I also love to team very glamorous outfits with gorgeous over-the-elbow gloves (get them here). Of course I like to wear gloves which match my outfits perfectly. Pretty vintage inspired gloves are also available at TopVintage. Now, I only need huges sunglasses (see point two) and a vintage car. 😉

  1. Liebe Sandra! Du siehst natürlich mit allen Accessoires wunderbar und sehr hübsch aus, und sie passen alle zu Dir. Ganz besonders gefallen mir Dein stilvoller Sonnenschirm, der wie Dein Markenzeichen ist, Deine eleganten, zarten Handschuhe aus Nylon von Secrets in Lace (diese Eleganz ist unübertreffbar), und Deine bunten Haarblumen. Ganz besonders mag ich Deinen karierten Lena Hoschek Rock, den Du immer wieder auf zahlreichen Photos trägst, und die super dazupassenden Sandalen mit den Blümchen (Lena Hoschek kommt ja aus Graz, und Graz ist eine wunderbare Modestadt).

    Ich liebe überhaupt solch verspielte Accessoires wie Blümchen, und im Sommer freue ich mich besonders auf leichte Kleidung, dünne Blusen, Sandalen etc. Und an heißen Tagen möchte ich auf Fächer nicht verzichten. Fächer sind meines Erachtens ein Muss-Accessoire zur Vintage-Mode. Überhaupt mag ich elegante Outfits sehr, und Strümpfe sind auch im Sommer ein Muss, wenn ich elegant ausgehen möchte. Leider bin ich oft zu faul, um dann solche Accessoires wie Deinen wunderschönen Sonnenschirm mitzunehmen, und auch Sonnenbrillen bleiben bei mir leider meistens zu Hause.

    Ganz liebe Grüße,
    Yvonne

    1. Vielen Dank liebe Yvonne!

      Fächer habe ich in meinem Beitrag doch glatt vergessen! Die liebe ich nämlich auch. 😉 Ich nehme sie sogar mit in die Uni, wenn es sehr warm ist. Im ersten Moment sehen mich die anderen manchmal krumm an, aber spätestens wenn es richtig warm und stickig wird, beneiden sie mich. 😉
      Strümpfe mag ich natürlich auch im Sommer, allerdings spricht nichts dagegen, sie an sehr warmen Tagen auch mal zu Hause zu lassen.

      Ganz liebe Grüße zurück,
      Sandra
