The weather can be unpredictable, but summer fashion doesn’t have to be.
While wearing mini dresses and shorts depends on the weather, accessories are foolproof options.
With the ability to upgrade an outfit, rain or shine, a few simple additions will make summer dressing easier than ever.
From crochet scarves to beach-inspired jewelry, here are seven accessories to add to your summer dress rotation.
ASOS Design crochet scarf
Get it for £ 14 from ASOS.
This crochet scarf will not only hide bad hair days, but protect you from the elements while keeping the style in tact.
Pair with jeans and a tee for a relaxed bohemian look or a white linen dress on warmer days.
Ray-Ban Square 1971 sunglasses
Get them for £ 150 at Farfetch.
If you’re investing in a pair of sunglasses this summer, make these 1971 Ray Ban Square beauties.
A classic shape, the golden edge and the light brown color give them a more trendy side.
Monki platform sandals
Get them for £ 30 from Monki.
Look no further than these Monki platform sandals for a chic summer shoe option. Wear with wide leg pants and an oversized white shirt for minimal effort with maximum impact.
Meanwhile, switch to a mini dress for midday brunches in the heat.

Get it for around £ 41 from Gimaguas.
As the weather can change in the UK in seconds, a bag with enough space for umbrellas and a raincoat is needed.
Keep the sun’s serotonin levels high with this large canvas bag from Gimaguas. Perfect for all daily activities.
Mathe Isabelle necklace
Get it for around £ 42 from Mathe.
Bring the beach to you with your jewelry choices. This pearl and pearl necklace from the Greek brand Mathe is the only piece of jewelry we will be wearing over the next few weeks.
All we need now are crystal clear waters and an Aperol Spritz.
Zara woven beanie
Get it for £ 29.95 from Zara.
You might be walking in rain showers next to the Thames, but the French Riviera fashion can be replicated anywhere.
This woven Zara hat is a summer staple and when paired with an all-white outfit, you might be guessing your actual location.
ASOS Design Green Spiral Hair Clip
