4 Covetable Accessory Trends for Event Season

You’ve got the dress, we’ve got the accessories. Whether it’s a wedding, race day or a special celebration for Ramadan or Eid, here’s how to elevate every look with the four covetable accessory trends of event season.

1. Pearls


Pearl-adorned pieces have moved from the classic to the contemporary in SS19, shaking off their conservative reputation for something that feels fresher, cooler and considerably Instagram-worthy. From hair accessories to earrings, you won’t have to look far to find pearls in every iteration this season, with bead-adorned designs combining with unexpected textures, metals and shapes as part of their modern revival. The good news is that there are no set rules to wear pearl accessories – express yourself with one statement piece or mix a few pieces for a curated take on maximalism.


2. Top-Handle Bags


A covetable alternative to the classic clutch, the top-handle bag has wooed the fashion crowd this season. Elevating every outfit with minimum effort, these vintage-inspired styles have been down-sized for invite-only events, with resin chains and metallic handles cementing their relevance for SS19. Wear them in a whole new way with rose-toned designs in soft suedette – we like how these pieces make the trend feel instantly fashion-forward rather than formal or demure.


3. Diamantés


If you haven’t contemplated wearing diamantés since your last school disco, now is the time to reconsider the throwback accessory trend of SS19. Small-scale sparkles are everywhere to be seen for event season, with bejewelled hair clips and dazzling drop earrings making up the sought-after styles that were made to be mixed and matched. Want to go all-out? Tie your summer party look together with an iridescent sequin pouch, delicately detailed with metallic silver beads and a sleek ring handle.

4. Hard-Case Clutches


Hard-case clutch bags are playing a significant role in our summer wardrobes, contrasting against the long, fluid hemlines that usually dominate the event-season dress code. Interpret the trend in a modern way with lustrous mother-of-pearl textures and slimline silhouettes or hail heirloom styling with vintage jacquard fabrications and gold-tone metal trims on structured boxy shapes.
