Have Accessory Trends SS19


Easter is around the corner and that signals that spring is officially here! When a new season is upon us that can only indicate the excitement of a fresh wardrobe.

Accessories can make or break a look and designers for Spring/Summer 2019 opted to open the season with a host of bold and eclectic looks that ranged from monster sun shield shapes and exquisite head accessories to XXL totes and travel-inspired style supplements.

Sun Shields

Make no mistake about it, mega-lens sunglasses are certainly the eye-catching accessory of the season. The eyewear trend has turned 180-degrees with XXL frames that transpire as a complete contrast to last season’s micro-lenses. Larger than life shapes came from the likes of Tom Ford, Stella, Tod’s, Loewe and Gucci, where the accessories were essentially masking half the face.

Heads Up

Hair adornment proved to be a real game changer in the land of accessory trends for SS19. The trailblazer for this aesthetic was Miuccia Prada, who decorated every one of her models heads with fabulously exaggerated headbands, arriving in leather, sumptuous satin, beribboned and studs. Beaded hair-slides imbued a modern thus classic look at Simone Rocha and elasticated ballet hairbands prevailed at Christian Dior.

Bigger Than Big Totes

Quite literally parachute size, totes were designed to almost match the size of the wearer for spring/summer 2019. Able to carry the kitchen sink in, XXL totes are big news for bag trends this season, also doubling up as a solid workout. Take inspiration from the likes of Michael Kors, Valentino, Etro and Emporio Armani. Transparent additions were at Versace, logos were emblazoned onto gigantic versions at Stella McCartney and ginormous totes will evoke total office envy at Burberry.


Adventure and the enticement of travel imbued many designer’s collectives for SS19, were souvenirs from holidaying appeared to be the main source of style inspiration. Hippy handbags were seen at Dior; California dreaming tie-dye was witnessed at Prada; arm bracelets, toe-rings and layered anklets accessorised those at Chloé and glistening tribal earrings adorned those at Givenchy.
