I’m currently OBSESSED with turbans and hair scarves (see my How to Tie a Turban video here) because they make the perfect summer accessory. I prefer lightweight oversized scarves because they can be tied into turbans, used as a sarong, worn as a wrap, or if you’re in NYC they can double as a light jacket or sorts for days when the weather is inexplicably chilly in June. I’m also into hair ties because they not only can they come in handy for bad hair days no matter your texture, but they also add something extra to your top knots, twist-outs, ponytails, and more.

Earrings are also a super easy way to upgrade your look. There’s tons of cute tassel styles out now, many of which are super affordable and can take a look from basic to FASHION.

Hats are another amazing way to upgrade your summer look. I like visors and other big-head/big-hair friendly hats like the ones pictured below. The one on the left is a few bucks north of $20, but if you’re someone who has trouble finding cute hats that fit, you might not mind.

Yes, there are SO many other lip colors, but a bold red (whether a blue-based red or an orange-based red) can instantly upgrade your outfit status instantly. See a TON of red lipstick swatches on dark skin here.
