Has this situation ever happened to you? You’ve spent months scouring for the best light jackets, statement t-shirts and sleek sneakers for the upcoming summer months. However, when the sun rolls around, you’ve realised that you have no accessories to match them with. Suddenly, you’re pairing Bode trousers with shitty knitted Christmas socks and matching that Stüssy camp collar with a pair of gas station sunglasses. Fear not, we’ve got you covered and have assembled a list of 10 accessories that are sure to complete any look.
Stüssy Brent Logo-Embroidered Checked Flannel Bucket Hat, US$68.50 / £50
Ahh the humble bucket hat, once worn by festival-goers and the guy you avoid at parties, is now a perfect summer accessory. This multicoloured flannel one by Stüssy is equal parts skater and fly fisher.
CELINE Homme Ribbed Tie-Dyed Cotton Socks, US$120 / £89
Want to experiment with tie-dye without going full Woodstock? These socks from CELINE’s ‘The Dancing Kid’ collection are a perfect introduction, Grateful Dead CD not included.
Bottega Veneta Black Intrecciato Leather Sandals, US$1157 / £845
If we’re allowed to travel this summer (jury’s still out), what better way to announce yourself to the world than sporting these Bottega Veneta sliders at the pool. If not, I’m sure they’ll do an equally great job as a pair of house slippers.
Marine Serre Silver Tone Hybrid Beaded Bracelet, US$376 / £275
This Marine Serre beaded bracelet is the perfect way to stylishly relive that one emo phase you had when you were 12.
BALENCIAGA Lunchbox Cross Body Bag, US$1404 / £1,025
Despite the name, this isn’t the sort of bag to hold your midday sandwich. Made out of recycled plastic, this bag is the perfect way to move on from the bum bags of yesteryear.
Adam Jones Wrexham Lager Tote Bag, US$102 / £75
WREXHAM LAGER, WREXHAM LAGER, FEED ME TILL I WANT NO MORE, FEED ME TILL I WANT NO MORE.
D’HEYGERE Eyewear Belt, US$315 / £230
Wait, you keep your sunglasses on the collar of your shirt? Pfft, get a load of this guy, he doesn’t have a specifically designed belt to hold his shades.
GCDS Black Print & Colour Transparent Printed Cube Bag, US452 / £330
GCDS’ transparent cube bag comes in two styles; a black model and a balls to the walls multicolour style for when you’re feeling that morning cartoon nostalgia. ‘
Ami Beige Corduroy Hat, US$123 / £90
You know in action movies when the hero has to go incognito so puts on a baseball hat? Why are they always so ugly! We should see the likes of Tom Cruise and Matt Damon wear this Ami Corduroy hat instead. Although then they’d be stopped by a bunch of people asking them where they got their sick hat from.
Jacques Marie Mage Sunglasses, Both in Black with Blue Lens and Brown with Yellow Lens, US$733 / £535
Inspired by Dennis Hopper in the 60s classic ‘Easy Rider’, these Jacques Marrie Mage sunglasses (available in both black with blue lens and tortoiseshell with yellow lens) are a great way to separate from the Ray-Bans and Persol pack.
