20 of the best mermaid accessories to give you all the summer vibes

It totally makes sense that you’d spend your life wishing you were a mermaid. They never have to wear uncomfortable skinny jeans, they never have periods (they’re missing a fairly important component), they have constantly perfect hair despite being underwater, and they don’t ever need to worry about shaving their legs. Sigh. It’s the dream.

But unless a mystical sea witch is on the horizon, waiting to steal your voice and change your fishy fate forever, then the chances are that you’re probably stuck on land and with legs for the foreseeable. Not to worry though, because mermaid is the ultimate trend this summer, and we’ve rounded up a whole load of mer-mazing accessories that will help make all of your underwater dreams come true.
