It’s time to emerge from our cocoons after several weeks of isolation and bask in the sun among good friends. You’ve patiently waited to debut your new Bomba Bambola suit and reveal those gorgeous legs to the adoring public. It’s finally your time to shine. To complete your look at the next pool party or beach outing, we’ve rounded up our favorite picks for must have summer accessories as you float your way among the throng of admiring onlookers.
This. Is. Big. The iconic jungle Versace dress heard around the world at the 42nd annual Grammy Awards and marking J-Lo’s debut as legend, was reprised this year, as seen on the SS20 runways. We could NOT be more excited. According to the Versace website, “This epic red carpet moment generated such a high volume of search queries on the search engine, ultimately inspiring the development and launch of Google Images.” We’re calling it; the Versace Jungle Tote will be the must have summer accessory for summer 2020. And not only does it come in the original blue-green hue, it’s also available in pink! Want! Did we mention we’re excited?
Must Have Sandals
Valentino’s iconic rockstud heels launched in 2010 and have dominated the industry season after season and their signature sandals are no exception. These rockstud gladiator and thong sandals will compliment your look and accent the details on your bathing suit. So celebrate a decade of fabled footwear with these oh so chic sandals.
Must Have Sunglasses
Head to toe Valentino? Yes please! We love these metal, crystal studded sunglasses from Valentino’s 2020 collection that will compliment your killer rockstud sandals. They’re also just dark enough to people watch on the sly. Either way, you will definitely turn heads. Get hip.
Must Have Jewelry
Chokers and collared necklaces aren’t going anywhere anytime soon as seen on the SS2020 runways. We like this crystal capped hinge collar from Alexis Bittar. A favorite of Nina Dobrev, Emma Roberts and Nicole Scherzinger, to name a few, this statement piece will be the perfect summer accessory to compliment that new suit and coverup from our newest collection. And, bonus, the crystal will make the crystal studs in your Valentino sunglasses pop. Delish.
Face and Body
Must Have Sunscreen
While you’ll want to work on your summer glow, it’s still important to protect that butter honey skin of yours. La Prairie SPF 50 sunscreen is perfect for a day in the sun. It’s lightweight enough to wear under makeup or every day. After all, we foresee a lot of driving with the top down as we head to the beach and to all our favorite pool parties.
Must Have Mist
Dr. Dennis Gross C+ Collagen Perfect Skin Set and Refresh Mist keeps your skin hydrated with the added bonus of Vitamin C, which is essential for protecting and revitalizing your skin, especially when you’ve been out in the sun. Give yourself a quick spritz when you start feeling hot and parched and watch your skin glow, glow, glow!
Must Have Makeup
Chanel’s Spring Summer 2020 Collection is here. &. It. Is. Lux. Eclat du Desert is a limited edition illuminating powder that will give your skin a soft, golden glow. Add highlights on your cheekbones, temples, and decolletage. Their Ombre Premier Laque long wearing liquid eyeshadow leaves a velvet layer on lids with the perfect shimmer and light sparkle in the day, and under the lights as the sun starts to set. Available in 5 shades, we like Quartz Rose. Divine.
Must Have Lotion
We also suggest La Mer Soleil de La Mer Reparative Body Sun Lotion, a favorite of just about every A-lister including Beyonce, Khloe and Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Aniston, and so many more. It contains their famous Miracle Broth™, a cell-renewing elixir that repairs the appearance of existing damage while also preventing future lines with an SPF of 30. Because protecting yourself from the harsh rays never felt so good.
Must Have Hat
Topping off your look is a large, woven statement hat, which has been around for decades. From Bridget Bardot in the 1950s and Christian Dior’s SS1992 runway, to Olmos y Flores on Bella Hadid in 2018, as seen in Vogue Mexico. And of course Kylie nearly broke the internet in this Jacquemus le Chapeau Bomba (and nothing else) last year, proving that this silhouette never goes out of style. This classic is here to stay and will be the look for summer 2020. As seen on Kylie, as seen on Bella, and as seen on you. Slay, girl.
Must Have Towels
The perfect complement to your Versace bag is this fire Dolce Gabbana jungle towel. Bursting in color and print, it will go with any suit from our line. But, we also like Versace’s entry, which is obvi more low key. And it also comes in red and indigo blue...decisions decisions! We love both, so it really depends on how you want to rock your overall look. Either way, you’re golden.
