3) Cool Off In Ice

Some may stray from accessorizing with jewelry due to the heat, but I love to add petite necklaces to my summer wardrobe for extra shine on my skin. A simple piece of bling like a CZ necklace adds a bit of elegance to your neckline, and is perfect when worn with a tank or blouse. These necklaces looks like diamonds, but are made with cubic zirconia stones making them incredibly affordable and are the perfect necklaces to layer with other pieces to create a “cool as ice” feel.

6) Summer Scarf

A scarf is a creative way to spice up your look during the summer. Scarves aren’t just great for when it’s cold out, as a lightweight scarf can really up your overall appearance during the warmer months.
