They’ve gone from add-ons to showstoppers: here's a hit list of hip bags, shoes, hats, earrings and headbands

Double it
The trend of carrying two bags at once didn’t start on the runway. The root of it is the canvas tote bag, usually carried with a leather handbag to keep more valuable items such as our beloved “black mirror”, our cellphone. On the SS19 runway brands such as Chanel and Fendi owned this micro trend and designed two bags in the form of one. The only concern might be all that ching we need to double up on.
Platform shoes
Platforms have been long coming, and now that wave without a name has turned into a tsunami. Look to brands such as Jil Sander and Salvatore Ferragamo.
The crown
From Prada to Orapeleng Modutle brands have come up with the perfect extension of the crown, a term sometimes used to refer to a woman’s hair. So if you are experiencing a bad hair day just throw a headband on it, the more dramatic it is the better.
Safety first
In a world where everything and everyone is frantic, anything that makes you feel protected at all times is welcome. This is why the latest sunglasses, which are like construction safety glasses, will be a big hit. Kim Kardashian has already been seen wearing them and that is enough to have the whole world wearing them.
And who needs sunscreen when you can wear a beautiful oversized hat at the poolside or even during a stroll at the beach? Everyone does but the point here is, the bigger your straw hat is this spring, summer the better.
Logo earrings
If being subtle is not your thing, then being spotted in logo earrings will work for you. Chanel and Maxhosa have made earrings that will not leave onlookers wondering how much shop-hopping you needed to do before landing on gold.
