Dare I say that sunglasses are the number one must have for summer? I think so and the Real Housewives seem to agree. Sunglasses not only keep the sun out of your eyes but they are also one of the easiest and most fun fashion accessories around. The Housewives are a huge fan of aviator style sunglasses due to their classic oversized shape. You can get a pair with fast and safe delivery on OvernightGlasses. Plus nowadays they come in every color under the sun which makes them even more appealing!

Throw-on-and-go Romper

Whether you’re heading out for a mani/pedi, drinks with the girls, or are just back from a day at the beach you want an outfit that you can just throw on and go. No muss, no fuss just simple and cute. The solution? A romper. The Housewives love a good romper because it’s stylish and easy breezy! Plus rompers are super easy to dress up or down. Toss on a necklace, earrings, and a wedge sandal and voila you’ve got a fabulous look put together in the blink of an eye.

Oversized Beach Bag

Prada Plex Shopper 

If you’re heading to the pool or beach this summer then you need a bag to lug around all your stuff. Enter the beach bag. However, today’s beach bags aren’t your mother’s beach bags. Nowadays beach bags are super stylish and fun. Plus you can easily use most beach bags away from the pool and sand – they are that versatile and on trend. A big trend for beach bags, and purses, in general, is the 90’s inspired clear bags. Another Housewives favorite is the Chanel Deauville Tote, which is #goalsAF.

Colorescience Sunforgettable Mineral SPF 50

If you want to look keep up your youthful good looks like the Housewives then sunscreen is a MUST. Sun damage is the number one ager which is why you should be wearing sunscreen 365 days a year but especially in the sunny, warmer weather months. Proper sun protection is all the rage so slather sunscreen on from head to toe. You’ll thank yourself 20 years from now. You can even keep yourself protected on the go with easy to use sunscreen mists and powders.

Pair of Statement Earrings

During the warmer weather months, most people wear as little clothes as possible which means your accessories need to do the talking for you. Statement earrings are the perfect way to amp up any outfit – day or night.

Wedge Sandals

Valentino Rockstud Wedges 

Put your heels away for the summer and instead opt for a wedge sandal. The wedge sandal gives you the hight of heels but the comfort of a flat. The Housewives are big fans of Valentino’s Rockstud wedge sandal. In fact, Kyle Richards and Tinsley Mortimer were both recently spotted rocking them.

Much like the hairband trend we talked about above, the Housewives seem to love fedoras. From East Coast to West Coast and North to South Housewives from all over the country have rocked a fedora at some point in time. It’s an easy, stylish hat that can be worn on the beach, by the pool, at dinner or at a daytime party. It’s so multifaceted.
