But let's get something straight, we're not talking trends that will fade from existence two months from now and leave you with a pile of accessories you can't be seen wearing anymore.  Nope, no thanks.  I'm talking about the kind of trends that shine now, and will still shine next season.  Which, I guess is summer, because apparently yesterday marked the first day of Spring 2019!  I think I speak for everyone when I say fiiiiiiiiinally.  Needless to say, we're always going to be swimming in a pile of possible accessory trends each season, but I've cherry-picked the most chic options right now that are guaranteed to make a chic girl's heart skip a beat.  Enjoy...

Be still my beating heart.  Shell jewellery evokes memories of tropical travel and time spent on beaches, but combine it with a metallic sheen and you've got yourself a very chic accessory.  One thing to note is that silver doesn't seem to quite cut it; go for gold, baby.  Oh, and the Cowrie shell is the ultimate shell of choice!

A trend that's here to stay.  Now that we're moving towards (slightly) warmer days, it's time to ditch the wool and cashmere and instead look in the direction of silk and satin blends that will complement your outfit without resulting in a heat rash!  This is a trend worth investing in, as the cost-per-wear goes down dramatically the more ways you find to wear the accessory.  My advice?  Wrap it around a strap of your handbag, tie a pussybow around your neck or wrap it around a low-side ponytail.

Think Clueless meets Gossip Girl.  I wasn't convinced at first, but the more bloggers and models I've seen stepping out in plush and blush headbands, the more keen I am to style one.  This trend is definitely an acquired taste, so try a few on while you're next out shopping before purchasing!  If you do decide to take the plunge, opt for sugary, pastel shades with heavily embellished details or a plush texture.

Belt bags have had one hell of an upgrade since the original influx of designs we were introduced to last year.  Kiss goodbye your nylon fave and get familiar with the new elegant designs you'll be seeing more of this Spring.  Keep an eye out for chain straps, gold-tone hardware and more luxurious textures such as calf leather and silk.  My absolute favourite right now is this pristine COS white leather belt bag (under £50!)

Can you believe I haven't jumped on this bandwagon yet?  I know, there are no excuses.  Quite possibly the most elegant shoes to bless the fashion scene, mules are here for another season.  They're now adopting a less bulky form, to match the lighter and brighter weather ahead.  Keep the sunnier days in mind when selecting a colour; soft and gentle colours are best, so to keep in tune with your spring/summer wardrobe
