Last but not least for the week, here are the accessory trends for the season. If you missed the rest, we discussed 2019’s Fall & Winter colours, vibes and silhouettes, jeans, and footwear earlier this week. 

As in clothing and footwear, there is a strong ’80s and ‘90s influence in accessories. For jewellery, it’s about plastic and resin earrings, tortoiseshell anything, asymmetrical earrings, interwoven rings, and chunky chain link necklaces and bracelets. There are all sorts of brooches and scarves, which you can style any way you like. Dainty monogram necklaces and bracelets are fashionable too.

For headgear and hair think turbans, corduroy hats, bucket hats, plaid anything, hair slides, headbands and barrettes. Belting at the natural waist is huge, especially with wide belts over dresses and tunics, or in belt loops or high-rise pants and jeans.

You might enjoy brightly coloured crayon hosiery with matching or contrasting footwear. Fishnets and leg warmers are having a fashionable moment. Dainty short socks worn with pumps, loafers and oxfords continue to trend. Chain-strap bags, small dressy crossbodies, belt bags, shearling bags, and carrying two bags at once — one large and one small — are where it’s at for bags. Any accessory in animal prints, mock croc, plaid, earth tones, and patent is big. And nylon bags have made a comeback too.

I’m sticking to my chunky white pearls and vintage brooch for jewellery, since I’m not a jewellery person. That said, some lovely friends gave me a very dainty gold monogrammed necklace that I like wearing layered with my pearls. I have fab prescription tortoiseshell sunnies, a fun new graphic moss green and cream polka dot scarf, a good selection of woolly hats, and a very large and happy handbag collection. I feel very sorted with cold-weather accessories, although I’d welcome another white, red or citron bag.

Over to you. Which accessories are your cup of tea?
