Accessorize Your Summer

Posted on June 02 2015

Here at Frankie’s On The Park, we have a love-hate relationship with dressing for summer. Yes, it’s great to be able to rock your favorite shorts and tanks, but when it’s 90+ degrees outside, looking cute while trying to stay cool can be extremely hard. In colder weather, it’s simpler to showcase your personal style with layers, jackets, scarfs, and socks. But when you’re planning on spending a day in the warm and humid Chicago air, you just want to put on as few clothes as possible. The solution? Accessories. You can make any summer outfit more unique if you add in some great jewelry, bags, or shoes. Frankie’s On The Park is the perfect place to shop for your soon to be favorite summer accessories. Check out some of our favorites below!


Summer shoes don’t all have to be flip-flops! While sandals are great for heading to the beech or for a short walk, if you’re planning on spending a long time outside, you may want to have something with a little more support. Our new favorite footwear brand, Bucketfeet, has the perfect comfortable and cute shoes for summer. Their Vermillion Slip On Sneakers are bright, intricately patterned, canvas slip-ons that are sure to be instant conversation-starters and outfit-makers. The Bamboo pattern is also a great, colorful choice. If you prefer something with laces, their Artic Lace Up Sneakers are the perfect choice.


Putting on jewelry with any summer outfit instantly adds flair and sophistication. You don’t need to have drawers full of jewelry to get the job done either! As a good rule of thumb, it’s a good idea to start out with a short necklace and a long necklace. This way you’ll have a lot of flexibility to wear a necklace with many different styles of necklines. Our two favorite long necklaces are our Tai Alphabet Necklaces and our Zacasha Tripple Tassel Necklaces. Both are great for wearing with v-necks, scoop necks, or any other type of lower cut shirt or dress. As for short necklaces, our Lotus Petal Initial Necklace, in both gold and silver are perfect for wearing with higher cut necklines.


Bags become even more of an essential in the summer. Without a jacket or a coat, you’ll need something besides tiny short pockets to hold your stuff. If you like something small and easy to carry, try our ME.N.U. Girls Fringe Cross Body Bag in either black or light grey. Or if you prefer something with a little more room for your favorite stuff, our Rolf Bleu Love Tote Bag will be perfect for you.

At Frankie’s On The Park, we have all the summer accessories you need to stay stylish in the hot weather. Stop by our stores in Chicago and Santa Monica, or shop online, to pick out some great new accessories that you’ll love to wear all summer long!
