So you just finished shopping for spring, but now all your favorite stores are already beginning to stock irresistible styles for the summer. You've tried telling yourself to wait a beat before pouncing on those next-season pieces you've got your eye on, but you feel your patience running thin. (It's okay, and you're not alone.) Go ahead and consider Net-a-Porter's new arrivals the permission you've been waiting for, because the online store is serving up all of the best summer 2019 accessories trends — and the good news is you can wear every single piece now.
It's oftentimes the accessories that can make the look, and judging by the slew of new styles trending for this summer, that statement has never been more true. Summer 2019 is all about utilizing bold finishing touches to elevate your ensembles to the next level, from glitzy statement belts to relaxed, boho-chic bags. And since you can already snag several of summers sure-to-be huge trends, why not take them for a spin a little early? You'll be miles ahead of the crowd all spring.
Last summer was all about teeny-tiny shades in retro-inspired shapes. For 2019, head the other way and opt for big, bold oversized frames in round, square, or cat-eye shapes. Bonus points for rocker-chic yellow lenses like the ones on these Stella McCartney aviators, $215, and the Loewe d-frame pair, $420.
Hair Clips & Pins
The style set's current addiction to hair accessories isn't exactly new (you were likely wearing headbands all last season), but the good news is the trend isn't going anywhere thanks to the latest slew of pins and clips. Stock up on whichever styles suit your aesthetic, from glam gold pins by Versace, $250, to oversized acrylic clips from Cult Gaia, $70.
Some accessories serve up as much style as they serve a purpose. Case in point: Summer's bevy of statement belts. Start wearing the trend now from day into night, with everything from your favorite pair of slouchy jeans to a breezy dress cinched at the waist. Not only will you be adding structure to your look, but you'll also be sure to steal the spotlight (especially in Isabel Marant's sparkly crystal style, $545).
First came the structured woven straw purses, then came the whimsically nostalgic beaded bags, and now it's all about crochet. Keep all your essentials together in an unstructured tote with tons of boho charm. Wear the trend right away by opting for a $345 Loveshackfancy handbag in spring's palette of the moment, pastels, or an all-black iteration by Isabel Marant, $800, that's still plenty sophisticated.
West Coasters have kept shell jewelry to themselves for long enough. The trend is making its way into just about every market now, reminding the fashion set not to take style so seriously all the time. There's something relaxed and fun about 2019's shell-adorned jewels, but still totally refined and elevated. Try a statement ring, like Tohum's $410 gold Puka shell style, or snag a pair of Dinosaur Design's aquatic-inspired earrings, $95.
A trend that protects your face from harmful UV rays is certainly something worth adopting ASAP, right? So snag every beach-goers go-to accessory for shielding their skin from the sun: the straw hat. Start wearing it now for trips to the farmer's market or long, luxuriating rooftop brunches with friends. Eugenia Kim's Annabelle Grosgrain-Trimmed Straw Hat, $435, offers an unexpected pop of color, while Cult Gaia's $150 Mia Straw Sunhat boasts an exaggerated shape which makes an architectural style statement.
