By Rachel Dean

Pulling together your summer wardrobe can be a difficult enough challenge, not to mention the added task of finding the perfect accessories to complete your look.

To take the pressure off, I have found ten of the cutest, most affordable accessories that are sure to be the perfect additions.

So, whether you are enjoying the sun abroad or at home this year, keep in style this summer with these season favourites.

1. Tassel Espadrilles from Missguided


Make a statement this summer with these fun espadrilles from Missguided (navy denim, £16; black, £25).

Perfect to pair with a denim skirt or shorts and would look just as good with jeans.

2. Frilled bikini from Primark


Splash out in style without having to splash out in cash with this adorable bikini set from Primark at just £13 (top, £8, bottoms, £5). I

It also comes in nude for anyone seeking a more neutral-toned look.

3. Khaki green beach cover-up from River Island


Get beach-ready in this beautifully embroidered khaki green cover-up (£22) from River Island.

The elasticated waist flatters the body, giving and overall pretty, feminine look.

4. Palm leaf basket bag from New Look at ASOS


With tropical prints trending this season, this basket bag (£25.99) from New Look at ASOS makes for the perfect beach bag this summer.

5. Hooped earrings from Topshop

7. Embellished sunglasses from River Island


These silver sunglasses (£18) from River Island are a stunning addition to any look. They are limited edition, though, so grab them while you still can!

8. Tropical bikini – Forever 21


This bikini (top, £12, bottoms, £13) from Forever 21 is just gorgeous.

The clean white with the touch of tropical print makes for the ideal holiday look. 

9. Funky bum bags from Skinnydip


Add energy and colour to your outfit with one of these bum bags (£18, pineapple charmed, £20) from Skinnydip.

Ideal for festival-goers and party destination holidays.

Last but certainly not least, these flip-flops from Primark are essential for days at the pool. 

They are extremely affordable, priced at as little as 90p to £2 and come in wide variety of quirky styles.
