Summertime is the perfect time to accessorize with natural materials. Straw bags and hats have been a summer staple for, well, a long time.

Maybe it's because bulletin boards are being replaced with trendy chalkboard walls and magnetic whiteboards... cork is totally making a comeback in a new way: accessories! It seems a little strange, yes? But cork is actually pretty cute, especially for shoes, handbags, and other accessories. It's not something that you'd want a million pieces in, but a few here and there in your summer wardrobe and I think you're good to go.

I pulled some of my favorite cork pieces. Tons of brands have incorporated cork in one way or another:

What do you think of the cork trend? Is it something you'd want to incorporate into your summer wardrobe?



  1. I love those Kate Spade flats! I've been lusting for a pair for the longest time.

  2. I just got these last week, and I'm loving them!

  3. Those TOMs wedges are really cute! I love wearing cork or woven wedges during the summer.


  4. Hi Carly,

    I'm a recent college graduate myself and I've been reading your blog for years . This is my first time commenting I just wanted to share a link that has brought me great perspective during the last semester--

    It's really inspiring and has given me a fresh look on life when things get a little stressful and the future uncertain and has cheered me up many times when I've felt overwhelmed :) just wanted to pass it along

    Thanks for a wonderful blog!

  5. I love cork! I'd love to get a pair of cork heels!

  6. As much as I am in to trends and fashion, I can't say I will be jumping on to the bandwagon. However, am dying over the Kate Spade flats in the left corner - but I would love those in any material.

  7. Hadn't heard of this trend until now. I really like the belt, bangle, and watch though!
