Dressing Up Your Summer Basics July 15, 2015 10:42

Summer is a time to take a step back, relax, and enjoy the simpler things in life. It's warm, and we seek adventures out in the bright sunshine. Because of this, Summer often calls for dressing more for comfort and functionality than style.

It's a fine line between comfortable and unkempt, though. Often I find myself dressed, yet needing a little something extra to look pulled together. The good news is that accessories can effortlessly dress up those summer outfits when occasion calls for it, without losing that freedom of movement we are all craving. A little splash of shiny metal adds some sparkle to any outfit, and gives the appearance that at least a little thought was put into your appearance.

Try adding some dainty pieces mixed together for a more boho look, or a large statement piece to draw the eye to something more elaborate on a simple outfit. The great thing about many of our pieces at Applepear is their versatility. Our more dainty pieces can be left on as you switch outfits from day to day, or can simply be mixed and matched so there is little thought required. Even our more elaborate pieces still maintain a classic appeal so you don't have to worry about whether it distracts from whatever else you have on.

Take a peek at these examples we've put together for inspiration!
Happy Summer to you all!
