Jeanne Beker picks the per­fect ac­ces­sories for your May 2-4 get­away

A STYLE STATE­MENT Aldo, Prom­e­nade mall, $25, “You’ve got to have a big sun hat like this to pro­tect your pre­cious face. This is a wow piece with a great graphic de­sign.”

A BOAT TOTE Parpar, 1766 Av­enue Rd., $148, “This is a great bag to jump on a boat with. It’s made of this heavy scuba fab­ric. It also comes with a cute cos­metic case.”

VIN­TAGE VIBES Snap­dragon De­signs, 622 Mt. Pleasant Rd., $145, “I just love the look of this bag. It’s in that great saf­fron colour with some fun tas­sels on the side. It looks like a hand­crafted piece.”

BEACH DREAMS Want, 1788 Av­enue Rd., $189.95, “This sweater has a very hand­crafted look in this beau­ti­ful aqua colour. It says ‘Beach,’ and not all cot­tages have beaches, but there’s al­ways room for wish­ful think­ing.”

HIP­STER SHADES Over the Rain­bow, 101 Yorkville Ave., $18, “Th­ese very cool wire frames are my favourite be­cause they look so hip­ster and they’re a beau­ti­ful ode to a nos­tal­gic style.”

COSY IN CASH­MERE An­drews, Bayview Vil­lage, $398, “This is very lux­u­ri­ous. Imag­ine sit­ting at a camp­fire wrapped up in this. I love the heathered look in this pas­tel pink shall. It’s a for­ever piece.”

SILKY SCARF Canopy Blue, 2582 Yonge St., $78, “This beau­ti­ful silky print scarf could be worn as a sarong-style swim­suit cover up, but would also look great as a shawl.”

DOU­BLE DUTY Sport­ing Life, 2665 Yonge St., $170, “This Lolë bag is per­fect for bring­ing left­overs home. It also has back straps that make it per­fect for a hike.”

SPORTY SUN­NIES Over the Rain­bow, 101 Yorkville Ave., $18, “Th­ese are a good sporty pair, if you’re on a boat or ly­ing on the dock, and they’ll do the trick to keep your eyes safe, too.”

HAT-TITUDE Canopy Blue, 2582 Yonge St., $118, “I love the look of a fe­dora. This one has this beau­ti­ful coral that’s so hot this sea­son, with a splash of hot pink.”

A NOD TO LUXURY Sport­ing Life, 2665 Yonge St., $175, “Mack­age, a great Cana­dian brand, they’ve done this beau­ti­fully soft leather base­ball cap. Ap­pro­pri­ate to wear in the city but would just give your re­laxed cottage look that ex­tra bit of edge.”

’70s STYLE Over the Rain­bow, 101 Yorkville Ave., $18, “Th­ese sun­glasses are very ode to John Len­non in the ’70s. This pair is very fash­ion for­ward.”
