Are you on the hunt for cute summer looks? We’ve got you covered! It’s grilling and chilling season, and we have plenty of cute summer styles that will keep you looking and feeling cool on sunny days and breezy summer nights. Discover some new looks and classic summer accessories for your summer wardrobe at lou lou boutiques.

Our Favorite Cute Summer Styles

1. Tote Bags

Totes never went out of style, but they’re back in a big way. There’s something about an oversized fashion tote packed with backyard essentials that just embodies summer. After all, you don’t need to be at the beach to feel beachy!

You can cram your tote with anything from towels and a bathing suit to your favorite grillable treats. When it comes to cute summer looks, totes are fun and practical — perfect for anyone who wants to show up to the party prepared for a tote-ally good time.

Our Golden Straw Tote is a fun twist on a classic summer staple, or you’ll love our Street Level Suasti Straw Tote if you’re looking for a more bohemian-chic vibe. We also have totes with fun summer phrases like our Shiraleah Always on Vacay Tote or our Shiraleah Beach Please Tote. Choose one that matches your personality and flaunt it!

2. Shell Jewelry

It’s no secret that 90s fashion is back in a big way, and that includes shell jewelry. As far as cute summer looks go, you really can’t go wrong with shells. They immediately make you think of lazy beach days, tropical getaways, and fun in the sun.

The beauty of shells is that they’re so versatile. They add a subtle, summery touch to virtually any outfit. Throw on your favorite cutoffs, sandals, and a plain tee, and finish the look with a Cowry Shell Bracelet or Cowry Shell Necklace. Try pairing our Cowry Shell Earrings with your favorite sundress. The combinations are endless!

3. Something Long and Flowy

When it comes to cute summer accessories, comfort is the name of the game. After all, cute summer looks should help you beat the heat (and look good doing it).

A long, flowy vest, kimono, or other similar garment is a wonderful choice for daytime gatherings that turn into nighttime parties. They’re light and airy, but they’ll still offer a little warmth when that cool summer breeze hits.

We’re delighted to offer a variety of items that are perfect for summer layering. Our Geo Printed and Ombre Vest are both wonderful options for anyone looking for a rootsy, boho-chic aesthetic. Or, drape yourself in our Tie Dye Kimono or Frayed Striped Kimono for an easy-breezy look that’s undeniably summer through-and-through.

4. Dangly Earrings and Long Necklaces

Fashion jewelry is pure fun, and that’s what summer’s all about. On those hot summer days when you don’t feel like thinking too much about cute summer looks, statement jewelry will go a long way in elevating any outfit. Throw on some shorts and a t-shirt and accent it with a fun pair of dangly earrings or a long necklace — simple and sweet.

Our Horn Stone Wooden Bead Necklace and our Natural Stone Tassel Necklace are both bold yet tasteful necklaces that pair with all sorts of outfits. If you’re looking for something a bit more adventurous, check out our Statement Tassel Earrings. Our Mint Bird Earrings and Flamingo Earrings are also sure to inspire plenty of smiles!

5. Sunglasses

No summer outfit is complete without your favorite pair of shades! After all, cute summer looks should be practical as well as stylish. We’re proud to sell Blue Planet sunglasses. Not only do they look stunning, but for every pair sold, the company donates a pair to someone in need!

Whether you prefer Black Round Classics or Blue Ombre Aviators, you’re going to love knowing that you did something special for a stranger. The fact that these top-quality shades look amazing is just icing on the cake!

6. Beaded Bracelets for a Cause

Rocking Blue Planet sunglasses isn’t the only way to make the world a better place with cute summer styles. We also carry 4Ocean bracelets for the same reason!

For every bracelet purchased, 4Ocean will remove one pound of trash from the ocean and coastlines and help to save ocean creatures such as sea turtles, dolphins, or sharks (depending on which bracelet you choose). They’re also made from recycled materials!

Besides knowing that you’re contributing to a positive movement, these bracelets will complement all of your favorite cute summer looks. They’re simple, casual, versatile, and fun — what more could you ask for? Whether you’re sipping drinks by the pool or grilling up a summer feast, 4Ocean bracelets are always the perfect summertime accessory

7. Scarves

Scarves in the summer? It may seem wrong, but once you try it, it feels so right. Of course, there’s a big difference between winter and summer scarves. A lightweight, cute scarf is so versatile. You can wear it around your neck (of course), but it’s also so handy when you want to cash in on the best summer hair trends and pull your hair back.

When it comes to cute summer looks, a scarf goes a long way in elevating a simple outfit. Our gorgeous Tropical Scarf can be worn as a shawl, cover-up, or even as a lightweight vest on cooler days. Our Printed Village Geo Flamingo Scarf is another summertime classic that’s both funky and functional.
