How to Accessorize 3 Summer Trends

Handcrafted necklaces

Let’s talk about summer trends! A good seasonal trend is never complete without the right accessories to pull it together — so without further ado, below are my favorite looks, complete with accessories from HolderIndustries. All of the clothing below has been carefully selected from sustainable brands, small women owned businesses, and/or lovely makers. I am not representing any of the designers or shops I’ve chosen (other than HolderIndustries) —  I just really like what they’re putting out and how they’re doing it. Happy shopping!

Kaftan Dresses

Kaftans have a long and rich history, originating in cultures of the middle east dating back thousands of years. Kaftans take varied shapes and forms among the cultures who enjoy them, from Persia to Africa, and beyond. Most often, kaftans are made from loose breathable fabrics with vibrant colors and prints. In ancient times, the kaftan style was often worn by royalty. In modern times kaftan dress can be taken from day wear to a chic evening look with the right shoes and accessories.

Lovely Linen

Linen is a great summer fabric, known for its , durability and casual vibe. It’s the fabric that is supposed to wrinkle. Woven from flax fibers, linen is also sustainable and is another textile dating back thousands of years. These looks are some of my favorites. I’ve linked to each shop below.

I believe there is something slightly bohemian about linen, so accessories with an earthy touch look great. Jewelry with crystals and celestial themes, while still embodying a simple and refined look compliment linen dresses and tops.

The Classic T-shirt

I love a classic t-shirt with a fancy flair. A plain white v-neck, layered with necklaces, delicate earrings and paired with trousers and sandals is my cup-o-tea. Or, an oversized black t, with a gathered knot, maxi skirt and statement earrings… yes, please.

Take the simple look of a basic t-shirt to the next level with a mix of delicate and bold brass jewelry.
