These Accessories Crafted By Black Designers Are Absolute Summer Must-Haves

Summer travel is upon us, and that means we'll be looking for new items to add to our wardrobe. I know there are many fast fashion brands that keep us looking so fresh and so clean on a budget, but I started to think about purchasing investment pieces from black designers.


I hit the web and searched for accessories that will make stylish travel companions all summer 19' — while supporting black entrepreneurs.

Sunglasses x Coco and Breezy

Founded by twin sisters, Corianna and Brianna Dotson, Coco and Breezy have created quality handcrafted eyewear since 2009. You can find their designs at retailers nationwide and online.

Headwrap x The Wrap Life

I never travel without a headwrap from The Wrap Life. Their wraps make it easy to add a pop to any outfit and help me take a break from styling my hair on vacation.

A Woven Handbag x AAKS

If you're heading to an island or to a music festival, AAKS' handwoven bags (handcrafted in Ghana) make a great warm weather handbag to keep your most important items in tow.

Cover-Up x Andrea Iyamah

Andrea Iyamah is known for its stunning print swimwear. This black and white cover-up will complement a wealth of swimsuit options, and can also be paired with the line's high-waisted pants and cropped top.

Handmade Shoes x Brother Vellies

Not only are Brother Vellies' shoes handmade, but buying from this black-owned business means supporting the local economy and artisans in South Africa, Ethiopia, Kenya, and Morocco.

Go Strapless x Nubian Skin

Summer vacations usually mean you'll need a strapless bra to get some support under sleeveless tops. Thanks to Nubian Skin, you can find a strapless bra to match your skin tone— and you can rock it under a top or solo.

Make A Statement x Beads By Aree

Nothing sets off vacation attire like statement jewelry. From earrings to chokers, with Beads By Aree you'll find the perfect piece for your aesthetic.

Monolith. If you’re blessed enough to get several decades under your belt while remaining in your (relatively) right mind, if there’s one word that you will find yourself using more and more often, it’s "monolith." The reality is, that very few things fall into the category of being “something having a uniform, massive, redoubtable, or inflexible quality or character” — sex included.
