Now, consider adding a pair of head-turning sunglasses that'll have you summering like a celebrity to your rotation. Lately, we've noticed that the high-profile set has moved beyond the sculptural, thick frames and graphic patterns we know and love in eyewear in favor of colorful lenses.
To go with her black gown with a high slit and plunging neckline for prom, Eleanor Clarke added silver accessories. In addition to strappy shoes and pearl drop earrings, the teen carried a metallic clutch. “Still don’t know how I got away with a huge hip flask as my prom clutch,” the high school student in the United Kingdom (where the legal drinking age is 18) captioned her formal photos on Twitter.

The paintings in my apartment are a mix of punctuation marks and cheeky Indian pop art, and and I prefer my couch pillows have stripes over cutesy bacon strips.

There's nothing like scrolling through Instagram between the months of June and September to suddenly be hit with a serious case of wanderlust. Whether it's a scenic beach shot from the south of France or a #latergram from Cape Cod, envy-inducing vacation snaps flood our feeds this time of year. Whether it's the floppy "Do Not Disturb" Eugenia Kim style that renewed our interest in over-the-top vacation headwear or the more traditional straw panama style, if there's one accessory that'll step up your vacation, it's this.
You may be up to speed on summer’s top clothing trends, but accessories are an integral piece of the style puzzle you can’t ignore. Truly, what’s more fun than a color-infused tote, a darling basket bag or bedecked sandals? They’re made for the heat. (Minimalists don’t despair, a plethora of streamlined styles are also on the docket this season—simple block heels, a stark white bag, effortless slip-ons.)
Beyond being cute, mini bags are a totally practical part of a summer outfit. Think about one when a tote won’t do and you’re jonesing for something that feels less workish and a little festive. Or maybe your clutch collection is in need of a shake-up. Whatever the reason, we’ve scouted a slew of styles from handhelds to cross-bodies, all ready for the sunny season.

The list of what you have to transport to an outdoor concert is long: sunscreen, hand sanitizer, wallet, cell phone, portable charger (Instagram and Snapchat eat up your battery, after all), light jacket—whew! Carry everything—but stay hands-free/dance ready during Kendrick's set—with this edit of festival-worthy backpacks. From ELLE
Liv Tyler wrapped up her stint on HBO's “The Leftovers” and is now embracing her new gig: Triumph lingerie model.
By now, I've found that all it takes is half an hour of examining the models at Zara and Urban Outfitters to walk away with an entire month's worth of ideas for how to dress beyond my usual T-shirt-and-jeans. This time around, one particular accessory seems to be vying for my attention: the fanny pack.
