I love summer style. The bright cheery colors and fun prints are so hard for me to say goodbye to each fall. I usually try to stretch my summer trends out as long as possible, which means I'm often buying pieces towards the end of the season that are on sale and usually wearing them for a couple months.
One of my favorite places for summer statement pieces is Charming Charlie. They've got everything a girl could need in super fun colors.
If for some crazy reason you've never shopped there, let me tell ya a few reasons why I love it.
1. Fun statement pieces
I love a good statement bag. From a fun-shaped cross body to a bright and colorful handbag, pieces like this have become one of the main elements in my personal style. Another one is accenting my outfits with bright accessories that feel cheerful and fun. They are the perfect way to pep up an outfit and add interest.
Charming Charlie always has a great range of these types of items and it's the perfect place to grab seasonal accessories if you're feeling festive. This summer, were talking watermelon
Here are my top statement pieces for summer:
2. Shopping by color
My favorite colors are coral and navy blue. I absolutely love that the store is organized by color since I can pop by my favorite-colored sections to find pieces I know I'll love across seasons.
If I'm in a hurry and need a specific colored piece for something I'm styling or a specific look I'm building, I can browse only the sections I need to ensure I find a piece that will be a great match.
3. Stock up without breaking the bank
The thing about designer pieces is you usually get to pick just one on any given shopping trip. At Charming Charlie, you can have it all for the same price as one designer item. So essential when it comes to fun statement pieces that don't always work for everyday wear, unless you're like me and rock bright colors and whimsical accessories loud and proud on a daily basis.
This whole look is from Charming Charlie minus the shoes. Part of my collab included a $50 giftcard to pick out some pieces I loved, and surprisingly I only ended up going over by $10.
This dress is a super great transition piece from summer to fall since the metallic lace is the perfect base for accenting with bright colored pieces for summer or adding on some layers for fall. I'm loving how it looks with coral and light pink for summer and for fall I see it working great with navy blue and burgandy hues. Oh, its also half off!
The Citrus Slice Crossbody is an oh-so-perfect summer staple. It's a great size for summer nights out and about and such a fun piece to pair with some wedges and denim cut-offs. It's just enough space for the essentials. I picked out some super fun earrings that have a lot going on, especially for being on sale for under $5. I can't find them online to link to, but if you like the feel of them I found some super cute similar styles here (under $5!) and here.
