Peak summer style: our essentials checklist

Stephanie Schaffer

Posted on June 17 2016

One of my favorite quotes is from Gretchen Rubin, a writer on happiness and good habits. “The days are long but the years are short” rings true especially in June, which is about the time you are wondering how half a year is already gone and scrambling to pack all you can into a summer season where the days ARE actually the longest of the year.

How is it that by the time you realize the summer solstice - the official start of summer -  is here daylight is already on the decline? We are here to help you maximize peak summer with our affordable accessories picks to have you looking great all season long with these five essentials.

1. Sun hat or fedora $35


So you want to look chic and stay protected from the sun during a long walk or an all-day beach session? lou lou always has the best affordable hats to suit your features no matter what the season. I always love all of the summer color choices and selection of styles to keep you looking chic when it’s hot outside.


2. Sunglasses $20

Okay these are a year-round staple but who doesn’t love a new pair of shades? In addition to our classic aviator styles and AJ Morgan fashion styles, we carry a wide variety of Blue Planet sunglasses that also offer polarized lenses to keep your vision sharp while protecting your eyes from the sun’s intense rays. In addition, for every pair of Blue Planet sunglasses purchased they donate a pair of glasses to a person in need.


3. Hoop earrings $15

Our Ombre tote bag has it all: it’s a roomy carry-all that is equally at home on trips to the market, to the beach and in the office. How can you go wrong with something so versatile? Better yet, the inside pouch doubles as an oversized cross-body bag and comes with an adjustable long strap. The dipped-dyed saturated colors of this tote are so good looking you’ll want to show it off all summer long.


5. Clutch/wristlet $30


There are not many times when I can suggest a bag that works just as well at a wedding as it does at a street festival or for a night at the club but we have it and it’s only $30! Our triple pocket clutch in a neutral or metallic shade fits right in no matter what the situation and can be worn as a small cross body bag, wristlet or a clutch. The best news? It’s now available in natural, ostrich and woven textures giving your outfit that extra chic style boost.

It's that easy with the affordable fashion accessories at lou lou - peak summer style achieved. Now get out and make the most long summer days and nights!
