Looking for luxury accessories to elevate your summer style or gift ideas when flowers just don’t cut it? I’ve scoured the Neiman Marcus site and new arrivals for hours on the hunt for new luxury staples and elevated essentials. And there are a few goodies you won’t want to miss (I’ve nearly talked myself into treating myself to a few things).
Here are the best of the best luxury accessories from exciting new brands in gold jewelry, versatile summer handbags, luxury brand sunglasses, and in Vogue gift ideas for Spring and Summer 2022.
Did summer really happen if not in a fresh pair of luxury brand sunnies? Christian Dior is the winner in this category this season, with a classic wayfarer silhouette and nostalgic logo details embossed in gold. A little preppy, a little nostalgic, a little “better-than-thou”. And let’s be honest, that’s what this essential is all about.
If Cult Gaia isn’t on your brand watch list, it should be. Modernizing luxury with abstract silhouettes reminiscent of modern art, they’re taking over the fashion scene by storm. This natural pearl anklet is just one example of their unique approach to design, perfect to transform your look from ordinary to startling intrigue.
Debatably the most popular beach tote of the season, competing with Prada’s equally fashionable raffia tote. Treat yourself.
If you offered me one item from the Neiman Marcus site right now, this would be it. Hello sleek, modern yet nostalgic, elegant stallion you. This mini handbag is everything, and no surprise from a brand that has been literally slaying all summer style. The elongated geometric silhouette, mixed metallics, and a luxurious simplicity speaks for itself – its an iconic bag for the new season, and a staple for years to come. If I could have two pieces from Neiman… it also comes in white.
Circular shapes are a big trend for 2022, and what better way to modernize than with these beautiful capsule hoop earrings. The evolution of the gold hoop, these 24K gold plated earrings are the perfect accessory to elevate all of your summer looks with a more modern aesthetic.
Luxe evening wear has made a fierce return in 2022 after a long rest. This draped rhinestone cocktail bag reeks of sexy, with a modern elongated silhouette that’s begging for a night out. In one word – obsessed.
Natural ivory, stone and tortoise have made their way into the spotlight for 2022 jewelry trends. This chain bracelet has a rich texture and bold links that make it a modern statement piece now, and a classic staple later.
If Dior’s better than thou sunnies aren’t quite your vibe, keep it classy in these classic tortoise sunnies by Valentino. With no blaring logos and a subtle wing on a classic silhouette, these are refined luxury at its finest.
For those times when you want one piece to do all the talking, this is where the money’s at. Treat yourself to some eye catching bling, and then be so nonchalant about it.
Working in the fashion footwear industry for over 10 years, Veja isn’t exactly exciting anymore… but they’re a damn good looking essential – and still fly with the cool kids. So if you haven’t already gotten yourself a pair, here they are.
Ok, I’m obviously not over the bucket hat trend for 2022, so I’m just going to throw this one out there. I want it. It’s cute. And the subtle nude checks are just enough patter to mix up my minimalist summer style.
Ferragamo is typically a bit mature for my taste, but to these leather bit loafers, I would rock you. Way to totally slay this trend Ferry. You have me keeping an eye on you.
Duality is a big trend in jewelry, and one I’m embracing full force with double the expression. This cute little half-perl anklet doesn’t quite fall under luxury, but it’s a super cute way to freshen up your summer style for just $38. Consider it a wishlist bonus.
Baseball hats are a must have for off-duty summer style. This classic black staple by Saint Laurent is a timeless addition to a minimalist wardrobe with subtle varsity lettering.
There’s so much to say about this statement piece. Paperclip chain jewelry is in, as we all know. And emerald-cut stones have also made a big comeback this season. Get a luxurious mix of both with this piece by Dina Mackney, reminiscent of old-world glory… also a big trend for 2022.
Speaking of old world charm, these capsule hoop earrings capture something ancient with the energy of the sun. They combine art and design in a mini masterpiece plated in 24K gold for just over $100. If you’re looking for something exquisite for a steal, add to bag.
