3 Accessory Trends for Spring 2019
Greetings, and welcome back to 26 Days of Spring Fashion! I’m excited to team up with Nordstrom and talk about 3 accessory trends for spring 2019 that you may want to add to your closet this season.
There’s no doubt about it, adding a few on-trend accessories to your closet each season is the easiest (and least expensive) way to update your wardrobe, but it’s easy to let accessories become an afterthought.
I know I’m guilty of that — mainly because I like to keep my accessories minimal, but also because I spend so much time finding clothing items that fit and flatter and putting looks together, that by the time I get to choosing accessories, I tend to grab whatever’s closest and go.
But the power of accessories is undeniable. Even the simplest outfit can be taken to the next level with the addition of a few well chosen accessories, so I’m trying to be more intentional about my accessories these days.
Whether it’s jewelry or watches, scarves or handbags, belts or hats, Nordstrom is guaranteed to have a great selection for all occasions.
3 Accessory Trends for Spring
#1. Snakeskin Print
Some say it gives them the heebie jeebies, but snakeskin print is one of the hottest accessory trends for spring 2019, and it’s a nice way to add pattern and texture to an outfit.
This leather snakeskin clutch is such a great little piece to add to your going-out looks. I love how it has shades of lavender in addition to the neutrals.
It also has a convenient drop-in chain so you can put it on your shoulder and be hands-free if you need to be.
See how it elevates this simple outfit?
If that’s not your thing, consider another animal print — leopard or cheetah are everywhere this spring too. In fact, this clutch also comes in leopard print!
You can find just about any accessory in snakeskin print — belts, bags, shoes, scarves… even sunglasses. And don’t forget about shoes!
I have a pair of snakeskin d’orsay flats that I’ve been enjoying with my spring outfits. In fact, I just wore them the other night with black jeans and a black blouse to meet some girlfriends for happy hour.

#2. Bold Hoops
A tamer trend that shouldn’t give anyone the heebie jeebies is statement earrings — in particular, bold tubular hoops. These marbled hoop earrings are on the smaller side, but they still have that modern tubular style.
This pair is similar but larger — in fact, I ordered the black ones, but they didn’t show up at all in my hair, so I wore the white ones for this post.
I also have this pair of silver graduated hoop earrings that I’ve been wearing a lot.

This is an easy trend to wear because hoop earrings are a classic, making them highly adaptable to your personal style.
Add a pair of bold, tubular hoops to one of your regular outfits, and you get an updated look without stepping too far outside of your comfort zone.

#3. Layered Necklaces
Probably my favorite accessory trend right now is layered necklaces, and I love it when I find a set already grouped together into one necklace.
This layered disc necklace is a great example of a piece that is understated but still on trend. It’s also highly versatile and will go with so many outfits.
You can find layered necklaces in short and long versions, with as many as 4 or 5 necklaces in one, or just two as shown here. Some are even detachable so you can get several looks in one!

If you haven’t updated your accessories in a while, hopefully this post will inspire you to add a few new pieces to your arsenal.
These mules are currently 30% off, and the sweater and jeans are both under $50!
I recommend sizing down half in the mules, but the jeans and sweater are TTS.
black sweater // straight ankle jeans // mules // snakeskin clutch // hoops // layered necklace // sunnies
