While we’ve taken quite the vacation over here at The Chic Brown Chick, summer is all about refreshing and enjoying your surroundings.

From warm rendezvouses to quick breaks from work, this season is all about hitting pause and making life your own paradise. As the temperature continues to rise, it can be tough to take that much needed trip. Whether you prefer lounging in the sand or on your sofa- comfort is key. Although your schedule may be clear, warm weather is always on the agenda. Relax and beat the heat with an array of accessories. From shades to scarves, we’ll show you some stylish strategies on how to cool down while turning up this summer.

Sunglasses are a timeless staple for all; no matter how you choose to show off your style it's always important to cover up with a pair of shades. This summer waves hello to some spins on the classic silhouettes. Switch up your look by swapping your typical sunnies for a different size or shade. Micro sunglasses are a hot pick this season and add a sense of fun. If you prefer to stick to the same shape, try a tinted pair to add color to your look.  Stay safe from the rays and shine on with a taste of the rainbow.

Whether or not you've decided to skip your summer cut, wrap your hair up with a scarf for extra coolness. Tie it up in a bun or use it to adorn a braid, for a look that is both chic and chill. Silk is especially a smart material for styling your hair because it’s soft on your strands.

If you're especially looking to protect your skin, stick to a sun hat. It's the next best defense to SPF- and much more stylish. Toss on your swim suit or sun dress and top it off with a hat. A summer motto to remember- the wider the brim, the better.

No matter the length or your locks, an easy way to slick them back is by holding them with a scrunchie. It keeps your hair out of your face without creasing it. Reminisce their style and enjoy the return of this popular accessory.  Whether you prefer a funky pattern or a fun material, its a great addition to your current look.
