Summer is almost here with its warm weathers and sunshine. We all want to look as dapper as possible while still enjoying the hot weathers carefree and comfortable. How? You'll know for sure after you've read our list of must-have summer accessories.
A hat is one of the key pieces to all summer outfits. Hats are both trendy and provide excellent protection from the sun. If you are not used to wearing hats, summer 2018 is the perfect season to add one to your wardrobe. And don't worry, there's a hat for any style! If you don't know what kind of hat would be right for you, we gathered up a couple of good recommendations for both classy and casual styles.
A Panama Hat
A Panama hat is one of the top picks for summer 2018. It's extremely versatile as you can create a classy look with it or just wear it with a chill and laidback look. Whatever you choose to combine it with, it is guaranteed to make you look more stylish and attractive. Lightweight and breathable, a Panama hat is perfect for hot summer weathers. That's classy and comfortable combined in the best way!
A classic white or cream color is the trendiest choice for this summer, but if you feel like light colors are not for you, you can find Panama hats in all shades of brown and even in black.
Fun fact: Panama hats are not originally from Panama, but from Ecuador.
A fedora hat is always a stylish choice. As Fedora hats are almost always made of felt, usually wool, we wanted to introduce you to a featherweight summer version of a Fedora hat that is perfect for hot weathers. This Fedora hat is made of paper straws just like the Panama hat above, making it extremely lightweight, breathable and comfortable to use.
If a Panama hat or a Fedora is not your thing and you couldn't imagine yourself wearing one, you can always go with a casual cap. A cap is a classic choice that never goes out of style. Because they are continuously extremely popular, you can find them in almost every color and material possible. A cap is also perfect for summer; the crown prevents from heat strokes and the brim works as a shield for your eyes. In addition, most caps come with small eyelets to provide ventilation which makes them extra comfortable and breathing.
Water resistant jewelry
Summer is time for fun in the sun. And what could be a better way to spend a hot and sunny day than spending it at the beach or by the pool. As fun as it is, you can't just throw on any jewelry and think it will survive from possible contact with water without being damaged. A lot of materials that fashion jewelry is made of are prone to wear off or get ruined when in contact with water, sweat, or sun lotion. Unnecessary to say, it's extremely hard to avoid this kind of contact during summertime. You don't have to worry, you just have to choose the right jewelry to wear (because wearing none is obviously not an option).
Since we're all about affordable jewelry, we will not advise you to spend a fortune on jewelry made of precious metals. We recommend materials such as stainless steel, titanium, and natural stone, which are all great, durable materials making them perfect for summer. When wearing jewelry made of stainless steel, titanium or natural stone, you can use sun lotion, exercise and go swimming carefree. Nothing will ruin a beautiful day like having to constantly worry about what you're wearing and feeling uncomfortable because of it.
If you don't own any water resistant jewelry, now's the right time to do some shopping. For classy looks and affordable prices, here's a couple of our recommendations:
Stainless steel bracelets
Stainless steel is a durable material that is hard to scratch. It's often used to make i.e. kitchenware because of its ability to resist water and remain stainless and rust-free. This makes it also one of the best materials for jewelry that may be exposed to wet environments, such as beach and poolside. Find some of our favorite stainless steel bracelets for summer 2018 below. If you wish to see more bracelet options, visit our Bracelet Collection.
Titanium is an extremely durable material that is three to four times stronger than stainless steel. It's also a perfect material for anyone with metal allergies since it's hypoallergenic. As a bonus, it's lightweight, which makes titanium rings very comfortable to wear.
These titanium rings are great for their simple design and versatility. They can be worn alone or stacked with other rings. Choose the best color to match your personal style from three classic colors: black, silver, or gold.
Bracelets made of Natural Stone
Natural stone is a beautiful and durable material for beaded bracelets, and it comes in a wide variety of colors. You can swim with a natural stone bracelet without damaging it, and it also remains as good as new even if it exposes to sweat, sun lotion or other chemicals. Perfect for summer, right?
Beaded bracelets have been very popular for a quite while now. The great thing about beaded bracelets is that you can wear just one if you want to go with a simple and subtle look, or you can mix and match yourself a stack for a trendier and more eye-catching look. Especially stacked bracelets have been in recently, and by making sure that the beads are made of natural stone, you can wear them in any occasion without worries.
What would a list of the best summer accessories be without mentioning sunglasses? They are cool, trendy, and most importantly they provide good protection for your eyes. In summer 2018 we'll be seeing a lot of vintage shades for men, without forgetting about timeless, classic shapes like the aviators or the club masters. Round lenses are still in style, and if you want to get fancy with it, you can go for a pair with flip-up lenses. Whatever your favorite sunglasses style is, you'll surely find a pair that you like from our wide collection of men's sunglasses. We added a couple of our popular shades below.

Round sunglasses were highly popular last summer and they continue to be so in summer 2018 as well. Choose a pair of round shades for a trendy, up-to-date look.
Classic sunglasses are a must-have. They go with any outfit and for any occasion, and they are called classics for a reason. The design is simple, classy, and designed to fit most face shapes.
Summer is many's favorite time to throw a party because of the good and sunny weathers. There's midsummer parties, weddings, birthdays and what else. When you get invited to a party, you definitely want to look as sharp as possible. A full suit might be too hot and heavy for the hottest days, but that doesn't mean you can wear a pair of shorts and a tank top to every event. Well-fitting dress pants and a dress shirt with the right accessories is a great combination. The lighter the colors of the clothes, the less they heat up. And when it comes to accessories, make sure you have a good pair of cufflinks for your sleeves, a classic tie or a fancy bowtie, and a tie clip if you choose to wear a tie. This is an easy guideline to look classy in any event.
