Fanny packs used to be looked at with a healthy dose of distaste. But it has made a comeback, and we love the new style. Whether you choose a braided fanny pack or a bright one, this would make your summer dress pop out while also cinching your waist for a more feminine shape. Wear some white sneakers for a perfect street style look.

- Round Sunglasses
Round Sunglasses, Chanel
A summer outfit without a pair of sunglasses just doesn’t look complete. And you also need that eye protection from the blaring sun. Oversized round sunglasses are also currently on trend and will make a subtle statement piece with your dress. Style it with some minimalist earrings to maintain some balance.
- Straw Hats
Straw Hat, Topshop, $30
Straw hats are feminine, classic, and also very useful. It’s a summer essential any practical girl should have. Plus, it would be the perfect hat for your dress to create a breezy, beachy vibe. Style this look with your favorite sunglasses.
- Kimono/Beach Cover Up
Floral Wrap Kimono, Charlotte Russe, $26.99
Some summers night can be quite chilly, so you would need something to layer your dress. A kimono is a perfect jacket or cover up for nights like this. They’re also very versatile and can be worn over shorts, pants, and bikinis. A good cover-up is something you should look out for and will certainly spice up your summer wardrobe this year! Wear some strappy flat sandals to complete the look.
