    Summer 2018 Must-Haves: Shoes, Bags, Swimwear & More

    This summer is overwhelmed by trends: from sequins to denim-on-denim; from the 90's jumpsuits to the flowing dresses. You can stay trendy wearing your mom’s jeans and grandmother’s dresses, or even turning your old-fashion polo shirt into a modern dress. While there is so much choice of garments for you to wear, we want to focus on the things you wear every day in summer: shoes, bags, hats, accessories & swimwear. Here you will find the collection of the trendy, high-quality, and stylish pieces. Let’s get started!


    Bags of this season amaze us with their quality and concepts. Finally, we can purchase affordable & sustainable bags, which is almost an unbelievable word combination. Top picks of this season: Filt Net Bags (The Line, General Store, Ulla Johnson), Pleated Bags (Urban Outfitters), Buckets Bags from natural materials.


    Here we also give preferences to natural materials and colors. Oversized straw hats are a great opportunity to protect your hair & skin, remaining stylish and feminine. There are multiple colors and designs available, however, the classic straw hat with the black ribbon will complement every outfit perfectly. These are our favorites: Lack of Color – from sunny Australia; Sodade World – small hats production, multiple sizes available; Gorgeous Gondolier of Eric Javits.


    Minimalism versus abstraction, pastel colors & feminine silhouettes versus sports pieces. Which one would you choose this season? Hunkemöller launched their new Cheeky Collection, and with the multiple styles available, you can certainly find your perfect bikini. We gave preference to the plain pieces with interesting details. The choice is surprisingly big, check it out yourself here, and tell us what your favorite styles are in the comments.  

    Our favorites: Dusk Bikini (top, bottoms); Mangrove Bikini (top, bottoms); Beach Bag; Bohemian Platform Sandals; Bohemian Sunset Bikini (top, bottoms).


    Statement earrings remained trendy also this season. From wintery statement earrings with heavy stones and thick materials, let’s jump into something bright and flowy. Many brands presented gorgeous summery statement earrings, however, this brand – Mercedes Salazar - is an absolute leader. Our choices: Jupiter Earrings, Blue Flying, MSiamextraordinary.


    Mules, loafers, slippers. There are so many substitutes to generic flat sandals. Our picks are universal: wear them to work, to a date, and to a night out. What to choose: pleated pieces, neutral colors, suede shoes, closed & opened slippers, platform shoes, ballroom-dancing-like shoes, medium height mules.

    Here they are: Lisa Says Gah pleated mules (also check in pink color), Jeffrey Campbell Point Toe Mules; Miyo Olive Suede Mules; Zara Gold Braided Cage Sandals.


    Sea salt, peaches, iris, jasmine. These smell like summer! Your summer perfume or body spray should be light: fruity or flowery.  While there are so many options available in the market, we are in love with the not-so-new Aerin “Hibiscus Palm” perfume. As you can read from its name, it offers the tropical notes of Hibiscus, Lotus, Ylang & exotic Ginger.

    These are the “necessities” of summer 2018. You can add them to most of your summery outfits. They will complement each look by making it more trendy and complete.

    Don't forget to put on your sunblock and enjoy this summer! ;)


    We hope that you enjoyed this article!♥
