SS19 accessories gave us much to love and embrace this coming summer. Dior, Celine and Prada gave us offerings to elevate our headgear game, making headbands one of the hottest must-haves of the season. Quirky heels also made a comeback, and how! Remember Alexander McQueen’s iconic lobster claw shows? Well D&G, Fendi and others sought to give the label some serious competition in the shoe department this season. And as for micro-lenses? They are so over. SS19 is all about the monster-sized sun shield. The FW18 trend for large bags, however, looks like it is a strong contender, showing no signs of waning anytime soon if Versace or Valentino have a say!
Here's our pick of the labels we love:

Celine’s sombre headpiece had a glorious net accent while Dior gave us the accessory in the season’s ‘it’ colour - beige. Perfect for a formal party or a spring wedding, these are instant classics.
Whether you are looking for a jewel encrusted number or a neon accent, Prada gives us these trendy fashion forward pieces that will transform any outfit into an edgy ensemble.
Ferragamo showcased high wedges and cut-out heels that are perfect for a summer of surf and sand, while Gucci and Fendi created fantastical concoctions for that incredibly sophisticated party by the pool!

Large sunglasses, supersized, was the order of the day as represented by these creations courtesy of Dior and Miu Miu. Work them with a suit like a supermodel or combine with headbands to channel multiple trends in one neat look.
