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.
