Top five AW19 accessory trends

By  | 

With autumn well underway, we are seeing the season’s hottest trends from the runway, to everywhere up and down the high street. AW19 sees some old trends revamped, as well as some fresh new ones in the spotlight.

Clips and barrettes

One of the hottest trends by far this season has to be glam and classy hair accessories. Seen predominantly from Chanel, Versace and Paco Rabanne, jewelled barrettes and hair brooches are the perfect way to style up a simple hairstyle or create a stand-out feature to complete an outfit. Hair accessories are becoming more adventurous as each season progresses: summer saw pops of colour whereas we see more classical tones, like gold and silver, are in for the colder months.

Square-toed heels

Seen throughout the late summer months, this trend has also made a transition into winter. Instead of an open-toed heel, comfort is key during these colder months, and a court shoe with a kitten heel is definitely more on trend. Square-toed boots are also a more comfortable way to wear this style, seen from the likes of Balenciaga and Kenzo on the runway. This style is perfect for those who want to explore the trend but are also after the comfort and warmth of a sturdy winter boot.


Pearls come in many styles and are taking both the high street and runway by storm this winter. Seen in high street retailers such as Primark and Topshop, in various styles of headbands, embellished clothing and earrings, this trend is easily accessible for those who are looking to try something new!

Waist belts

The 80s have made a comeback through another trend this season in the form of chunky and figure-hugging belts. Last season saw the revival of corsets which created more of a Renaissance cinched-waist look, yet this autumn/winter, the high-waist chunky belt is in the spotlight, with classic styles seen predominantly from Saint Laurent and JW Anderson.

Chunky chains

Chains featured in a variety of ways on the AW19 catwalk, mainly through layering styles, creating highly stylised runway looks, particularly from the likes of Moschino and Balenciaga. Yet brands such as Marni can be seen incorporating this trend into dresses, giving new life to a relatively simple and accessible trend.
