You may have seen a few models rocking sunglasses that look too tiny to wear in real life situations. Thankfully, this trend is one that’s easy to follow with a wide range of frames, sporty, cat-eye and round, vintage sunglasses. In choosing a pair, fade out that model’s face, replace it with yours and select any that suits your face shape. The great thing is that sunglasses can be paired with any outfit, be it items with muted tones, bright colors or minimal design.
Sunglasses are more practical than merely fashionable as they protect you from UV rays. Sunglasses protect the delicate tissues and skin your UV blocking contacts can’t access. So if you have a passion for frames, opt for a pair that will protect your eyes and look awesome at the same time. Who says you can’t have excellent vision and slay at the same time?

It goes without saying- small bags don’t take in most of our stuff. Mini bags, however, are great for a short night out with the girls or the love of your life where all you need is your cards, keys, phone, and a lip balm. You can switch up your look two ways with a single handbag; sling it over your shoulder or ditch the sling and rock it as a clutch.
You don’t need to spend big for such a tiny bag that takes only your phone and keys, but you do need to add this accessory to your summer wardrobe.
Espadrilles have gained massive popularity in 2018, especially with the introduction of their wedge styles. If you’re not a fan of wedges, you should look at getting mule-styled espadrilles. You can be a part of the trend with a more traditional slip-on fashion that is the dominant look this summer.
You can dress espadrilles up or down. The rule of thumb to wearing any form of espadrilles is to work with that covered-up on top to balance its extra height. Wedge espadrilles look great when worn with long dresses and are great for any outing- be it during the day or night. Flat espadrilles are universal and add a relaxed touch to any piece of clothing.
Countless celebrities have made it clear to us that you can’t go wrong with this fashion. Clear bags can easily be incorporated into your clothing and accessories to give a chic vibe during the summer and are easier to tap into than you might think.

Trends are fun, plus, they are the basis for all your holiday outfits without you looking overdressed and eccentric. The best tip is to experiment when it comes to fashion accessories. Have fun and develop your style while at it!
