With New York's temperatures soaring, we're psyched to finally be rocking our new summer clothes! From breezy, bohemian maxiskirts to strappy sandals, there's a lot to love about warm-weather wardrobes. The one drawback? While it's easy to create visual interest by way of layering and loading-on during the chilly months, sweltering days sometimes leaves our outfits looking a little bare and slightly blah . An easy solution? Turn to accessories packed with patterns, prints, and textural touches. We've rounded up some of our current favorites right hereso get shopping!
Lizzie Fortunato Jewels Endless Summer I Necklace, $644, charmandchain.com
We're huge fans of this label's artsy, chunky baubles, and this statement necklace combines glass stones, crystals, and golden shells for a true one-of-a-kind piece. It'd look great with a simple, flowy white dress. The style name pretty much says it all, no?
Opening Ceremony Soludos Espadrille, $35, openingceremony.us
Made by Soludos expressly for our favorite NYC concept boutique, these canvas flats are durable, affordable, and sport the cool tribal print that OC's splashed all over their skirts, cardigans, and culottes this season. We love!
SURevolution Wayuu Mochilas, $325, surevolution.com
Available in countless colors combinations, these drawstring carryalls are hand-crocheted by women in South America's La Guajira region. Each one takes an entire month for one woman to completetalk about a labor of love!and the patterns drawn on the region's mythology. Definitely not your average tote!
J.Crew Tassel Treasure Necklace, $55, jcrew.com
Tassels were all over the runways this season, adorning everything from bags to belts to baubles. This necklace mixes coral-toned fringe, dangling crystals, and polished metal for a perfect, totally textural trinket.
Loeffler Randall x Suno Erin Lace-Up Wedge, $484, loefflerrandall.com
Collaborations make a Marie Claire editor's heart beat fastespecially when the results are as sweet as these. Footwear designer Jessie Randall teamed up with cult label Suno this season on two printed sandal styles, and these wooden wedges are simply to die for. Proof? Get a load of that wait list! Sometimes, the best things in life require a little extra effort.
Illesteva Leonard Sunglasses in Spider, $165 at illesteva.com
Illesteva might just be our favorite line of shades to hit stores recently, and we flipped over this retro-shaped, patterned pair. The name indicates those crisscrossing lines are meant to mimic cobwebs, but they also call to mind gothic lace and shattered glass. Awesome.
Madewell Trellis-Weave Trilby, $48, madewell.com
Hats off to summertime! A fedora or trilby is a great way to shade your face (and protect those highlights), but why not switch it up with a version in patterned straw? We love Madewell's version, and you can't beat that price, either.
MICHAEL Michael Kors Sloan Oversized Clutch, $248, michaelkors.com
From the shimmery, python-embossed exterior to the neat little pushlock closure to the chain strap conveniently hidden within (for when you're sick of clutching that clutch on the dance floor), we're not sure what we love most about this envelope-style bag.
