Summer seems to have finally arrived and we are all ready to enjoy the first weekends of sea and sun. With the arrival of warmer weather and the new season, comes airy, light outfits perfectly paired with beautiful summery accessories. For this reason, this year at Stylight we reveal the 7 must-have summer accessories of summer 2021: clogs, canvas bags, sunglasses in 70s style and much more.



The “ugly shoes” trend is definitely not over! After the Birkenstock last year, this summer 2021 sees the return of one of the stars of the 70s: the clog. These shoes with thick wooden soles have reappeared on the catwalks of Gucci, Celine, Louis Vuitton and now are on the feet of all the stylish It-girls, reinforcing the cottage core style that we’ve already seen earlier this year. On Stylight, we have noted a 85% increase in clicks for this category of shoes in May 2021.

What says summer more than a picnic? This year we are seeing the familiar wicker look on some of our favorite bags. This weaving technique, often used on natural materials and usually associated with homeware and outdoor furniture, is now making its way into the fashion industry. Mini, cross-body, hand bags – we’re seeing wicker come in all shapes and sizes this summer.
