Just picture it – warm beaches, joyous reunions with friends and family, and the chance to show off your post-quarantine wardrobe! But there’s just one problem – it’s hard to remember a time before all we wore were t-shirts and sweatpants. That’s why we’ve put together this list of the hottest accessories you’ll need for the biggest summer of your life.
Semi Rimless Glasses
Semi rimless glasses combine the best features of both main glasses styles. They retain the sleek, minimal design of rimless glasses, while still giving you the youthful, stylish look offered by chunky frames. Although semi-rimless specs have been a timeless choice for glasses-wearing folks, their understated, elegant design is the ideal compliment to modern, hipster fashion styles, as well.
Their variety in frame shapes gives wearers a great opportunity to customize their look to fit their own style, too. Lovers of all things retro will adore the fully round and aviator styles on offer. If you’re after something a bit more modern instead, you can try out pairs with gold metallic, or tortoise-shell frames.

These accessories come in all types of shapes and fabrics, including popular leather designs. The perfect choice for 2021, though? It has to be the straw sling bag.
