4. Watermelon Cosmetics Case

You need to keep your essentials clean and dry when lounging by the pool. Load this top zip bag with lip balm, sunscreen, waterproof mascara, and any other small valuables, and tuck it into your main tote.

5. Straw Pom-Pom Wristlet Clutch

This beige wristlet is anything but boring. The puffy, powder pink pom-poms give it a fashion forward feel. It's a lovely choice for a wedding or garden party, and is so versatile that it can be tucked under your arm, clutched, or dangled between your fingers.

6. Strappy Sueded Block Heel Mules

Slide into summer with these multi-hued mules. They add just the right splash of color and heel height to any ensemble, especially a monochromatic one.

7. Knotted Twist Slide Sandals

8. Fitted Crew Neck Tee Dress

It's B-A-N-A-N-A-S, to paraphrase Gwen Stefani. Yes, this is a dress and not an accessory. But the adorable print gives off all the summer vibes.

Warm weather apparel is plentiful at Old Navy. But these finishing touches are so summer-ready.
