Previously we discussed in an earlier post that trends are not the be all end all in fashion. If you happen to love a trend try it. On the flip side if you hate it you do not have to wear it just to be fashionable. Fitting in goes against fashion as it should be a unique personal thing that varies from person to person. Your style gives people a personal glimpse of your personality, likes and dislikes without even uttering a word to them. Trends are simply to inspire creativity in fashion and usually they are on a wide scope so it is unlikely someone would adapt all of the season’s trends.
According to WWD (Women’s Wear Daily) the leading accessory trends for spring and summer for 2019 include the following: bohemian, neon, oversized items, feathers, large logos and artistic jewelry. After looking at some of my favorite stores online for accessories I have included all of the following trends I found.
Above are the two main shapes that I saw not including the average year around sunglasses. The left is more of a narrow cat eye shape and the right is similar to snowboarder shades. If I had to pick between the two I would gravitate towards the snowboard shades. What do you call your shades? Sunglasses, shades or sunnys? Let me know.
Many brands are producing scrunchies again with a tie or bow detail. It adds a little bit more fun to a naturally unappealing scrunchy. The oversized barrette creates a fun statement as well.
Although I know some of you may actually love this style they remind me a lot of my grandmother’s clip ons. ha. That isn’t a bad thing just an observation that the trend is coming from the late 60’s. Geometric shapes, and artistic patterned jewelry make any outfit appear more one of a kind. Feathers, were not present on any of the sites I browsed, the closest was this pair of red tassel hoops.
While these are far from my style they are very popular and can be pretty fun. The bohemian trends is popular mainly for the spring break vacation photos. They present a more relaxed vibe overall and come in various styles.
Brand Me Babe
Lately this trend of large branding has been everywhere from bags to trucks. Normally they are for those folks that love to brag about owning a certain brand or item. I personally am not a fan of this for clothing or really anything. Think about it this way you are virtually paying to be a walking advertisement for the brand. I would rather do this type of thing to support an organization for instance.
