A dozen Muskoka must-haves

Jeanne Beker picks her favourite accessories to take to the lake — from stylish sunnies to haute hats, beautiful bags and more

A) ’70s STYLE

“These sunglasses are very ode to John Lennon in the ’70s. This pair is very fashion forward.”
Over the Rainbow, 101 Yorkville Ave., $18

B) BOAT TOTE

“This is a great bag to jump on a boat with. It’s made of this heavy scuba fabric. It also comes with a cute cosmetic case.”
Parpar, 1766 Avenue Rd., $148

C) A NOD TO LUXURY

“Mackage, a great Canadian brand, they’ve done this beautifully soft leather baseball cap. Appropriate to wear in the city but would just give your relaxed cottage look that extra bit of edge.”
Sporting Life, 2665 Yonge St., $175

D) A STYLE STATEMENT

“You’ve got to have a big sun hat like this to protect your precious face. This is a wow piece with a great graphic design.”
Aldo, Promenade mall, $25

E) SILKY SCARF

“This beautiful silky print scarf could be worn as a sarong-style swimsuit cover up, but would also look great as a shawl.”
Canopy Blue, 2582 Yonge St., $78

F) COSY IN CASHMERE

“This is very luxurious. Imagine sitting at a campfire wrapped up in this. I love the heathered look in this pastel pink shall. It’s a forever piece.”
Andrews, Bayview Village, $398

G) BEACH DREAMS

“This sweater has a very handcrafted look in this beautiful aqua colour. It says ‘Beach,’ and not all cottages have beaches, but there’s always room for wishful thinking.”
Want, 1788 Avenue Rd., $189.95

H) SPORTY SUNNIES

“These are a good sporty pair, if you’re on a boat or lying on the dock, and they’ll do the trick to keep your eyes safe, too.”
Over the Rainbow, 101 Yorkville Ave., $18

I) HAT-TITUDE

“I love the look of a fedora. This one has this beautiful coral that’s so hot this season, with a splash of hot pink.”
Canopy Blue, 2582 Yonge St., $118

J) VINTAGE VIBES

“I just love the look of this bag. It’s in that great saffron colour with some fun tassels on the side. It looks like a handcrafted piece.”
Snapdragon Designs, 622 Mt. Pleasant Rd., $145

K) HIPSTER SHADES

“These very cool wire frames are my favourite because they look so hipster and they’re a beautiful ode to a nostalgic style.”
Over the Rainbow, 101 Yorkville Ave., $18

L) DOUBLE DUTY

“This Lolë bag is perfect for bringing leftovers home. It also has back straps that make it perfect for a hike.”
