4 accessories men and women can rock

As the seasons change, so does the fashion. As the weather gets warmer, the layers of clothing and accessories get taken off. Even with that said, there are still numerous styles that can be worn by any gender identity.

 

Hats

The hat has been around for centuries. Seen worn as early as the Renaissance era all the way to modern day. Hats today are used not only for protection from harsh UV rays, but also as a fashion statement that anyone can wear. There is a wide selection geared towards a specific gender, but there is a large number of unisex hats in all different styles and sizes.

If you’ve ever gone to school, you’ve carried a backpack. While a person can carry around their school backpack outside of the classroom, the trend of carrying a modern version when out and about has made a splash in the fashion world. It’s perfect for the spring/summer season, especially when traveling. The origin of the backpack dates back to the 1800’s, but wasn’t coined until the early 1900’s in the U.S. Today the backpack is made in a various amount of materials from canvas to leather and a number of sizes, styles, and prices to fit anyone’s aesthetic.

 

Sunglasses

Sunglasses date back to the 12th century in China, where they offered no protection from UV rays and vision issues, but helped with protecting the eyes from glare. Not until the early 1900’s when people in Hollywood started using them did it become widespread. Today, a good pair of sunglasses that fit one’s face can really take an outfit to the next level. Also, as the weather gets hotter and the clouds disappear, fashionable shades also help protect your eyes from harsh UV rays. No matter what gender identity one prefers, there’s a pair of sunglasses that will fit anybody.

Adding a staple piece like a necklace to a basic outfit can really elevate it to the next level, whether you’re wearing a tank top with shorts, or a blazer and pants. Although usually seen more on females than males, there are wide selections of necklaces made for more than just girls. Traces of original necklaces date back all the way to B.C.E when people wore things like bones, shells, or teeth around one’s neck. Today, all though some necklaces can still be purchased like that with a slight modern twist, there’s almost infinite possibilities of what materials, shape, length, and price, a piece of jewelry around your neck can go for. Ranging from luxury pieces from Tiffany’s and Cartier, all the way down to fast fashion necklaces from H&M and Forever 21. There’s a type of necklace that can fit anyone’s price range and taste this summer.

Again, these are only a few items for the spring and summer that both men and women can wear. Anybody can really rock anything, it all simply comes down to one’s personal style and confidence.
