How to elevate a simple summer frock? Just add some thoughtfully selected (and quirky) summer accessories.
They say the key to updating any look is to switch up your choice of accessories, and for summer there’s an abundance of playful and upbeat options. Although there’s a definite nod to mid-century kitsch, there’s nothing necessarily bad taste here; vintage-inspired costume jewellery and eyewear are great starting points, plucked straight out of Miucca Prada’s school of style. Whimsical with an edge is the easiest way to translate it. It’s the perfect opportunity to turn classic ladylike looks on their head, whether via a tropicana keychain or a pair of heels with sheer socks. Preppy staples such as ribbon belts and silk scarves also get a look in here, the type of colourful additions that can quickly transform summer staples like a chambray or crisp white dress from humdrum to magnificent in no time.
