Can you believe it is already time to put away the flip-flops and unpack winter coats? With Labor Day right around the corner, the official end of summer is near! Before it is time for back to school and packing up your warm-weather clothing, it is important to savor the final mome­­nts of your summer wardrobe.
Here are five summery accessories to take advantage of before Labor Day. In addition, we are sharing fall versions of each trend to carry you through next season, all available at our online boutique.
Straw fedoras and wide brimmed hats are the ideal summer accessory for sunbathing at the beach or picnicking with friends. The brims not only provide practical protection from the harsh summer sun, but also add a touch of chicness to any outfit.

1. Sun Hats

However, the casual straw summer hat fabrics are unfortunately not cold weatherproof. For the fall twist on your favorite summer hats, try a neutral floppy fedora or a printed floral beanie.

2. White Jewelry


Us ladies know the golden rule of seasonal fashion: thou shall not wear white after Labor Day. However silly and out-of-date the rule may be, white and breezy accessories are best reserved for warmer months.



Luckily at lou lou, many of the necklaces and earrings are sold in a variety of colors so you are not limited to one season of wearing! If you truly love a style in white, it is worth investing in other colors to your collection for year-round wear. Or try stacking your summer white necklaces, rings, and bracelets with other color variations for a fun look!




3. Nautical Accessories


Sailboats, anchors, and ropes! Oh my! Nautical printed accessories are the perfect way to add a summery touch to any outfit.


But come fall, unless you are a full-time sailor, nautical prints make less sense back at school or in the office. Consider switching out your boat accessories for warmer colored plaid prints and wooden jewelry.



4. Straw Tote Bags


While away at the beach, embellished straw tote bags make the perfect bag for both the beach and errands into town. Sadly, when summer ends, so does beach bag season.


Don’t fret – fall bags are not only beautiful, but practical too. Replace your summer beach bags with supple leather totes in luxurious colors.

5. Metallic Tattoo Jewelry


Golden tattoo jewelry is red hot at the beach, music festivals, and bachelorette parties this summer. The temporary tattoo jewelry was edgy and complemented bronze summer skin tones.


Once you’ve used up all your gold and silver tattoo jewelry this summer, try nature inspired tattoos in warmer fall colors. The stylish temporary tattoos are floral and butterfly inspired and last 3-6 days.


No more style worries! Go soak up the final summer sun; you are now officially ready for fall!
