Make your summer style shine (no matter your vibe)

Ah, summer. So many cute aesthetics to explore—and we *have* to try them all. And  this szn, we're complementing every outfit with the cutest new jewelry, like our faves from Calico Sun (shop the collection here!).

In the hopes of making our summer more stylish, we sent the Calico Sun collection to some our fave GL fashionistas, asking for the accessory inspo they swear by. Your lookbook awaits...


"I would def describe myself as glam preppy," says GL girl Kinley, who is obsessed with all things bold and fun. "I love to add pops of color with fun accessories to complete my looks!"

Kinley's Calico Sun go-to? The electric Alexa Lightning Bolt Necklace ("It makes me feel fierce!"). Pair with pretty Lolly Temporary Tattoos and allll the hot pink for *ultimate* 90s realness.

THE AESTHETIC: Soft and Sweet

Looking for a classic, yet cute lewk? Whether you're feeling boho or bright, accentuated sweet, simple vibes with adorable arm candy.

GL girl Lorelei loves soft girl jewelry, and the best season for it? "Summer of course! Hello to all the bright colors." She loves boosting her outfits using dainty barrettes with pearl detailing—like Calico Sun Shelley Hair Clips.

THE AESTHETIC: Poolside, Pls 

Embrace that sunshine with a decked out (get it?) outfit. GL girl Henley says the best way to hit the water in style? Mix and match baubles and hues.

"I love that Calico Sun has tons of fun charms," she explains. "I can mix tropical and ocean themes together for the cutest look!" Her advice? Pair spunky star Alexa Hair Clips with the Clementine Charm Necklace for all the lounge-y glam. 

THE AESTHETIC: Tropical Vacay

Mentally, we're here: On the sunny beach, having the summer of our dreams. Whether you've got blue waves or not, you can still make this vibe yours. The secret? "Pinks and turquoise (plus tons of cute patterns) are just so tropical spring!" says GL girl Joy. "Calico Sun's charm bracelets are the perfect island getaway accessory."

Layer allll the bracelets (like the Calico Sun Shelley Bracelet set) for a paradise-inspired aesthetic: Add a bold necklace and you're ready to bask in the sunshine.

THE AESTHETIC: Sporty chic

Raise your hand if you're a tennis skirt/crisp white sneaks girl. Us, too. "I love jewelry that I can dress up or down," says GL girl Paizley, who's always on the go between dance classes, school and so much more. "Mixing and matching statement pieces with hair clips that are useful and cute? Yes, please!"

Her current obsession? Calico Sun's Shelley Hair Clips, which are perfect for every sporty vibe.

THE AESTHETIC: Accessories Always

It's! The! Season! Of! Accessories! "There's no such thing as too much glam," says GL girl Kamryn. "I love glitzing up a neutral look with maximum jewelry. And with Calico Sun, it's so easy to coordinate a colorful combo."

So have fun with it! Kamryn loves stacking bracelets on top of her looks, like the Calico Sun Clementine Charm Bracelets. Top off with sparkly hair clips and layered necklaces and you have a look that's looking good, girl.
