5 Accessory Trends for 2019
Classic or trendy? See the five must-have accessory trends for 2019.
Imagine a world where there are no fashion "rules." Instead, everybody dresses as "up" or as "down" as they please.
That's the best way to describe spring 2019. According to Vogue, trends, this season has been largely driven by people who dress themselves. Accessories can be as functional — or as frivolous — as the wearer decides.
The result? A comeback for old-school shapes and materials. Here are five accessory trends that you don't want to miss this season.
Looking for a way to freshen up your look this spring? We've got you covered from head to toe. Literally.
For once, size doesn't matter.
If the only things you carry around include your phone and a few credit cards, then the shrunken bag is for you.
But don't be fooled; the shrunken bag is just one end of the handbag spectrum. This season, big, top-handle handbags are in, too.
Again: It's all based on what the wearer decides, so find a miniature version of your favorite design and flaunt it.
Don't leave the art behind at the museum. Make a bold statement with your footwear this season by opting for a pair of sculptural heels. They can add an unexpected element of creativity to almost any outfit you pair them with.
Plus, with the lack of "rules" this season, you can go as high — or as low — as you want, achieving just the right balance of comfort and luxury.
As the sun comes out, you'll want to protect your face. What better way to do that than with a classic 1990s-inspired bucket hat? Make childhood nostalgia fashionable again.
Tip: Scarf print, plaid and checkerboard patterns are the hottest styles. But if you're looking to add a pop of color to your outfit, you might also go with a neon hue.
If your birthday is in June, you're in luck! Your birthstone is at the top of everyone's wish list this season.
But these aren't the same pearls worn by flappers in the '20s. Today's accessories feature more attitude. Whether worn as stud earrings, layered necklaces or in the hair on a clip, pearls are the perfect way to complete your look.
And did you know that pearls don't always have to be round? In fact, natural ones sometimes look better!
In the world of sunglasses, being a square is actually... acceptable?
Show everyone how sharp you are with a pair of angular or shield-like sunglasses. Frames come in a variety of shapes, so embrace your inner geometry nerd and be sure to pick either a dark or saturated tinted lens for added flair.
Take Control of Your Closet
Going in style this spring doesn't mean you have to start your entire wardrobe from scratch.
In fact, the best way to revamp your closet might be to invest in one or two accessories that you can mix and match with a variety of outfits. Shop Gucci on SSENSE to get up to speed on this season's trends before they're gone.
