This summer, blending into the background is not an option. A new, refreshing take on the rainbow brights that surfaced last season, colour-pop styling offers something a little more considered, with accessories providing a shortcut into the trend that evokes a sense of joy and optimism.
1. The Hair Accessories
Hailed as the year of the headband, 2019 is serving us all the hair accessories that we never knew we needed until now. Colour-pop pieces in particular offer an easy way to elevate simple ponies and messy buns, as well as lending them a burst of brightness. Opt for satin-soft styles in orange or teal or go all-out with statement stripes in tropical colour palettes.
2. The Bags
Woven bags have upped their game for SS19. Sitting alongside the natural textures that we know and love, the season’s latest arrivals come with waves of colour – think tiered tassels and all-over patterns. The good news is that every shape has a part to play in this bold fashion story, from structured basket bags and circular cross-body designs to supersized totes.
3. The Statement Earrings
Statement earrings are no stranger to colour, with high-octane hues dominating the hoops and dropped designs that we reach for on the days and nights that we want to be noticed. For SS19, clashing textures and embellishments are combining with punchy palettes, such as greens, blues and sunshine yellows, creating pieces that mix fashion with a feel-good factor.
