I often refer to basics as the staples in a wardrobe. It’s these versatile picks that really help balance out a top-notch closet. When it comes to accessories, I often put them in the "enhancers” category. Basically, I believe that you can wear a simple look featuring jeans, a tee, and a cardigan, for example, and take the ensemble to the next level with a few standout add-ons. TBH, this type of look is what I typically wear in my day-to-day life. I love a pared-down vibe complete with a statement shoe or bag.

On that note, I thought I’d share some of the stellar accessories I’ve noticed recently while scrolling through the new-arrivals sections at various retailers such as Nordstrom, Shopbop, and Net-a-Porter. I think incorporating one of these special pieces could truly enhance your wardrobe this summer given their effortlessly chic nature.
