Get into gear with our list of subtle, summertime must-haves.

Here are our recommendations for a long, hot summer:

  1. A bright pink shoulder bag to carry your essentials. Get rid of your black handbag and toss it to the back of your closet.
  2. A bold pair of sunglasses. Not only are they a fashion must have, they will also keep you from squinting your eyes.
  3. Gold hoop earrings. What could be more definitive of summer than a pair of gold hoop earrings? (Nothing, that’s what!)
  4. A variety of maxi dresses. Maxi dresses are the ultimate summer uniform. They are wonderful, elegant and flattering no matter your height.
  5. A bright colored scarf for disguising those bad hair days. One is never enough!
  6. A truly fantastic pair of flat sandals…preferably with a bit of sparkle! Summertime calls for magic and it’s a well-documented fact that a little shimmer increases your look by 1000%!
