Summer is finally here, and for many of us that can mean only one thing – a new summer style and possibly a summer holiday! It’s time to sparkle in the sun.
But when it comes to updating your summer wardrobe, whether it be with jewellery or clothing – you need to keep in mind that not every holiday ‘accessory’ on the market is practical for holiday wear. Those beautiful drop earrings you love might slip out when you swim in the pool, and your much-loved ring could very well fall off when your hands shrink in cool water (trust us, this is a real thing!).
But when it comes to summer style and holiday jewellery, there is a middle ground. You can still accessorise your summer outfits with beautiful jewellery both practically and stylishly.
Tips for Styling Summer Jewellery

It goes without saying, you should choose your summer jewellery wisely. You want to enhance your look, not detract from it completely by sparkling too brightly as you lounge poolside! For this reason, we recommend picking a few carefully selected and diverse pieces that you can switch out with multiple summery outfits.
Your summer jewellery should also be practical. While a thick bangle might look great when paired with a chunky statement necklace as part of a summer Boho outfit – both can leave you with some funky-looking tan lines. Opting for simple, elegant jewellery the way to go if you want to add a little sparkle to your summer ensembles.
Now, this might seem like an awful lot to think about, which is why we’ve done the hard work for you. Take a look at our top picks for summer jewellery and beach style.
Bright and Bold
This season it’s all about bright and bold colours, so take advantage of this while you can. Bright fuchsias and tropical yellows and greens are in, so if you want to inject some life into monochrome outfits, add a splash of colour with some layered bracelets in colourful tones. Our Personalised Ladies Morse Code Bracelets are slim enough to avoid those nasty tan lines – and come in a variety of eye-popping colours. Layer them on with two or three tones for a beautiful summery look.
Beach to Bar
One of the great things about summer is that it’s (sometimes) warm enough to get those legs out and wear summery dresses. So take full advantage of this fact and invest in one of the more overlooked items of jewellery – the humble ankle bracelet. We recommend pairing our Gold Sequin Anklet with this stunning Fleur du Jour off-the-shoulder mini dress from Free People. The breezy cut and soft peach tones of this dress make it perfect for summer, and it doubles nicely as a beach cover-up too!
Boho style is a go-go for summer, so investing in a flowing kaftan like this gorgeous printed silk Etro kaftan is a must if you want to beat the heat in style. The paisley design and tropical flowers simply scream ‘summer’, so accessorise with equally fun colours! A slim choker such as our Tutti Frutti Choker works well here. This choker adds a subtle sparkle, while the matte finish of the seed beads is in-keeping with the Boho style.
