Summer is a season, no matter where you are, that everyone enjoys. For students, it's three months of not having to worry about school. For families, it's the perfect time to take family vacations and spend quality time with those you love. For the fashionista out there, it's the best time to showcase the best fashion of year.
Each season offers different style and statements that become all the rave for a while; summertime is no different. It brings the best fashionable, flowy, and fun outfits for people all season long. But no outfit is complete without its accessories! Accessories are what complete an outfit, whether it's jewelry, purses, hats, or sunglasses.
For the perfect summertime outfit, accessories are a necessity! This summer, there are two major trends that are popular in accessories: purses and sunglasses. Both of these accessories, just like any other, can make any outfit complete.
Here are 10 trends of purses and sunglasses to look out for this summer.

2. Oversized bags
The oversized tote became a huge phenomenon through brands like Louis Vuitton in the early 2000s, and now it's back! These bags are perfect for a quick weekend trip or for storing all the necessities us girls need on a regular basis.
3. PVC handbags
PVC has become a major trend in not only apparel but handbags as well. This trend may have become a fashion statement, but it has also helped with safety, as well.
