ishan-seefromthesky-195970

Despite the last couple of cloudy days in London, we’ve seen the arrival of a sunny summer ahead. Holidays are impending and weddings, garden parties, BBQ’s and Wimbledon are already in full swing, leading us to consult our wardrobes and decide what this balmy weather calls for. We are firm believers that no summer outfit is complete without bright and beautiful accessories so this week we’re bringing you our top picks for a perfectly accessorised summer!

For picnics, days out, or simply a bag you can slip your heels into at the end of an evening then Masaai Colour’s Savanna Tote or Neikid’s Moss Green Baby Backpack is for you:

If you’re looking for some statement jewellery in this summer’s colours, rose quartz and gold, then the simple and playful Lily King collection of daisy jewellery, including this necklace below is great for parties, festivals and summer days out. For more sophisticated evening style we recommend Malin Henningsson’s “/;/;” gem and gold earrings:

There’s not much brighter a colour than orange, and it’s one of my absolute favourite colours to wear as it firstly compliments most skin tones, and secondly seems to draw a lot of compliments. Our top “orange” picks for this summer’s accessories are the Heidi & Adele Orange Salmon Arago wallet and the Siyana London Khadi Pom Pom Scarf:

Summer would not be complete without evening drinks on a terrace or in the garden, or a night out dancing til the sun comes up. For this, we’re recommending our favourite blues – the SCALO Sloane Squeeze and the Two Neighbours Camilla Clutch:
