1. Headbands in all shapes and sizes
Dolce & Gabanna was just one of the brands to follow Prada’s lead from their SS19 show last year, showing headbands of all sizes on the SS2020 runway. From huge silk roses to ornate crowns and delicate halo-esque headwear, the headband trend is well and truly here to stay this summer.
With everything from subtle styles to more lavish event-esque options, great brands have taken the hint from fashion week, offering a headband to suit every occasion from the bar to your next wedding reception.
2. Fierce florals on your clothes and on your head
Flowers have undergone a powerful makeover, with this season’s fierce new florals dominating the SS2020 catwalks. Tropical-inspired blooms were everywhere at Versace’s show, including on that epic dress J.Lo wore for the second time since the 2000’s Grammys. Handbags, headbands, gloves and scarves, florals have a fierce new feminine energy. Bold, large-scale florals made an entrance as dramatic headwear at Marni, cementing the floral and headband trends together.
3. Micro bags so small you can only fit a lipstick
Tiny handbags are one of the cutest trends from the SS20 shows, seen everywhere from Fendi to Emporio Armani. While the teeny bags aren’t a new idea, stylish takes on tiny bags with everything from embroidery to beading and ornate detailing like feathers is new. If you’re feeling bold, you may want to try the cross-body mini bag, it’s the return of the fanny pack in miniature.
4. Raffia everything
Raffia is the coolest eco-material in the accessory world, and it was everywhere at fashion week: from Simone Rocha to Valentino and Dior. Not only does a raffia handbag give an earthy, grounded edge to your outfit, it’s also gentle on the planet as it’s biodegradable. Stylish, eco-conscious and beautifully textured, a raffia clutch or top handle bag is your next summer must-have.
5. Bucket bags are the new tote
A stylish new carry-all, bucket bags were a nod to practicality at Missoni and Loewe. These cute-shaped bags open from the top, making it easier to fit more in, knowing your possessions won’t spill out when you open your handbag on the train. From studded detailing to classic lady-like styles, the bucket bags is your new day-bag this summer. When you need to carry more, your tote is out, and the bucket bag is in.
